Strength training is beneficial for teenagers, young adults, and older adults.1 Many strength training

 exercises are done in a weight bearing position, and the process of doing reps and sets with a modestly 

or moderately heavy load makes your bones stronger. Not only muscles, but also the soft tissues of the

 musculoskeletal system, including tendons, ligaments, and joint cartilage, are made sturdier by receiving

 increased supplies of oxygen and other nutrients. Engaging in a regular program of strength training will 

provide more restful sleep, rid your metabolism of accumulated toxins, add sparkle and tone to your skin, 

and improve your overall sense of well-being. All at the low price of two to three hours per week.

The key question is how to begin. Many books and online training videos are available. Most fitness centers 

offer a complimentary lesson or two with a personal trainer to enable you to learn the basics. Simply put, 

you want to train all of your major muscle groups once per week. For example, you can exercise your chest 

and back muscles on one day and your shoulders and arms on another day. If you're also doing one or two 

yoga classes per week, or one yoga class and two walking or running days per week, your leg muscles are 

covered.
