I’m sharing 3 reasons why you should add low impact strength workouts to your routine that have nothing to do with aesthetics. Plus, how to refuel with Genuine Health after your workout to feel your strongest, most energized self!

1. YOU’LL BE MORE EASILY ABLE TO PERFORM DAILY TASKS:
Incorporating strength workouts into your routine will help you improve your ability to do everyday activities in a safe and effective way. For example, the stronger you are, the more easily you’ll be able to carry your groceries to your kitchen, put something away on a high shelf, bend down and pick something up off the floor, or get up if you’ve fallen down. This will help you move through life with ease and enhance your quality of life.
2. YOU’LL AGE MORE GRACEFULLY:
Muscle mass naturally diminishes with age. At around age 30, we start losing 3% to 5% of lean muscle mass per decade as a result of aging. Strength training can help you preserve and enhance the muscle you lose over time. Plus, by stressing your bones, strength training can increase bone density, improve bone health, and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Strength training also improves your balance, which is especially important as we age and the risk of falling rises.
3. YOU’LL HAVE MORE ENERGY:
Strength workouts focus on low impact controlled movements with resistance, as opposed to high impact quick movements, so you will feel energized by your workout rather than depleted by it. The endorphins you get will boost your mood, which will help you gain confidence and be more present in all other areas of your life. Plus, you’ll get deeper, more restful sleep – giving you energy for work, friends, family, and all your other priorities!
HOW TO REFUEL AFTER A WORKOUT
When incorporating strength workouts into your routine, it’s SO important to refuel after with a protein packed meal! Protein builds muscle, helps our muscles recover faster, and helps us feel more full. My favourite way to refuel post-workout is through a smoothie – it’s quick, healthy, delicious, and nutrient packed. I always add this fermented organic vegan protein+ to my smoothies. It’s fermented for better digestion, maximum protein absorption, and minimal bloat – highly recommended!
Overall, those are 3 reasons why you should add low impact strength workouts to your routine that have nothing to do with aesthetics. I know how intimidating strength workouts can seem (I’ve been there!), but they are not just about young bodybuilders lifting weights in a gym.
They are amazing for people of all ages and fitness levels to make everyday tasks easier, increase energy, reduce risk of injury, age more gracefully, and manage chronic health conditions like depression and anxiety.
Whatever your fitness level or experience, and whether you’re a business woman, student, or mom, my ASB Strength Workouts will help you live a healthier, happier, & stronger life.
