What does BMI mean?
BMI stands for Body Mass index. It is used to give you an idea of whether you’re underweight, overweight or an ideal weight for your height. It’s useful to know because if your weight increases or decreases outside of the ideal range, your health risks may increase.
Benefits of Exercising
*Physiologically, the benefits of consistent strength training include an increase in muscle size and tone, increased muscular strength, and increases in tendon, bone, and ligament strength. Lifting weights has also been shown to improve psychological health as well by increasing self-esteem, confidence, and self-worth. Other benefits include: • Increased energy: more endurance, power and strength which translates into more useable energy. • Improved digestion and elimination processes. Your body is built for and meant to be active. • Improved intellectual capacity and productivity. Studies have shown that consistent exercise leads to increased intellectual capacity and more productivity both at work and in your personal life. • Better sleep: exercise enables you to develop a better sleep pattern. • Weight loss: muscle burns more calories than fat because of the higher rate of metabolism within the muscle tissues. • Strong bones: increased bone mineral density as a result of the loads being placed upon the bone during the exercise sessions. • Control of depression: you are active in a productive manner and the brain sends out endorphins signaling a happy pleasant state of mind during and after exercise.
