9. Lowers blood pressure.

Lower blood pressure helps reduce coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other heart conditions. That all equals a longer, healthier life.

 

10. Reduces lower back pain and injury.

This builds off of #8, but strength training targeted at the back reduces lower back pain and the incidence of lower back injury. Indulge often in deadlifts and rows!

 

11.Improves balance and coordination.

Weight-lifting is phenomenal for ballroom dancing, mountain climbing and staying un-clumsy in your day-to-day life. Lift standing on a flipped-over Bosu ball to add extra emphasis on balance and coordination.

 

12. Decreases the risk of adult onset diabetes.

8.3% of the population has diabetes. Weight-lifting helps ensure that you stay a part of the other 91.7%.
