Lifting Weights Build Muscle AND Health

9 November 2010 No Comment

It may seem obvious to say that working out is great for your health, but believe it or not, years ago many weren’t too sure of it.  And even now most know of its benefits on the human body but don’t know exactly how.

Recently Jim Stoppani wrote that a “recent study investigated weightlifting’s potential protective effect against oxidative damage.  They reported in a 2010 issue of Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research that regardless of whether subjects used heavy weight for lower reps or lighter weight for higher reps in a six-week weightlifting program, they experienced a significant aerobic benefit – an increase in protection from free radicals that would normally cause muscle and DNA damage.”

One major nutrient that PhysicalFitnessRx recommends because of its potential benefits to your health are omega 3 fatty acids.  The ones we recommend because of their proven quality are Core Omega 3 Fatty Acids by BeachBody.
