UPPER BODY EXERCISE BENEFITS :-
1. It can improve your posture :- A strong back is essential for good posture. A large percentage of the population live very sedentary lives, either through being hunched over a computer, plonked behind a desk or sat at the wheel of a car all day. As a result, most suffer from posterior imbalances. The chest muscles tighten, the back muscles weaken and the shoulders round forward (a condition known as kyphosis). Strengthening the muscles in the back encourages you to hold your shoulders back. It also improves your core strength, forcing the body to sit up tall.
2. It can give other workouts a boost :- Improving your upper-body strength can also help your ability in other workouts. The majority of HIIT workouts and circuit classes contain upper-body exercises, such as planks, press-ups or mountain climbers, which require a good base level of upper-body strength. By strengthening your upper body, you will be able to make the most out of these workouts without having to regress the movements.
Working on your upper body also has benefits if you do endurance-based activities. Strong shoulders are important for cyclists to help position the top half of their body over the handlebars, with arms and shoulders taking a large part of the impact of the ride. It can also benefit swimmers, helping to propel them through the water more efficiently.
3. You will improve your metabolism :- A great side effect of strength training is its metabolism-boosting power. Like HIIT training, strength training is an excellent way to get rid of excess body fat when paired with a controlled calorie deficit diet – giving you a leaner, more toned appearance.
Ultimately, the more muscle mass you have, the higher your resting metabolic rate (and therefore the more calories you burn by just existing). Also, unlike traditional cardio, strength training causes you to continue burning more calories for up to 72 hours after the exercise is over.
LOWER BODY EXERCISE BENEFITS :-
1. It’s Essential to Functional Movement :- Functional movements are the ones we use every day; movements that keep us strong for life. For example, each time you pick an object up from the ground, you perform a deadlift. Every time you sit in your chair, you do a squat. Lower-body strength is essential to maintaining these functional movement patterns. Without a strong lower body, it would be a struggle just to get yourself up off the floor.
2. It Can Say a lot About Your Overall Health :- A June 2014 study in the American Journal of Medicine found that older adults with more muscle mass have lower all-cause mortality (read: longer, healthier lives). The researchers even went so far as to suggest that muscle mass may be a better indicator of health than total weight.
3. It Can Help You Hit Your Fitness Goals :- Want to run faster, hike farther, lift heavier? Lower-body strength is a major component of all those activities and more. The stronger your lower body, the easier it will feel to run hills or tackle an intense hike or finally squat that new one-rep max.
Of course, you don’t want to entirely ignore other factors of your fitness, such as cardiovascular endurance, which is essential for powering those long runs and hikes. But if you focus on lower-body strength, those 30-inch box jumps in your next CrossFit workout will feel like nothing.
