Muscle building is an important factor of fitness training as muscle strength is vital to the human body at all stages of life.

Muscle building doesn’t only increase muscle strength, it also improves balance, co-ordination and with the right amount of strength training, bone density. This is important as we get older as in our later years we are more susceptible to trips and falls. Improved balance and co-ordination helps prevent us from having such accidents. However, if we do have these accidents, improved bone density will help to reduce the risk of broken bones and fractures.

Strength training has also been proved to reduce health problems such as high blood pressure, cholesterol build-up and heart disease.

Building stronger muscles is also important and useful in other situations in life. Muscles are the force that generate the movements of joints and therefore, stronger muscles will help us to lift heavier objects more easily. This can be anything from heavy shopping bags, carrying small children and other day to day activities.
