[ NUMBERS YOU NEED TO KNOW ]

  • From the American Institute of Stress [AIS], 44% of Americans feel more stressed then they did five years ago.
  • Also, from the AIS, 10% of strokes are caused by work stress.
  • Again, the AIS states, 40% of stressed people overeat or eat unhealthy foods.
  • From the Centers for Disease Control, adults who engage in strength training are less likely to experience loss of muscle mass, functional decline and suffer fall related injuries.
  • Also, from the CDC, studies on strength training interventions have indicated that inactive older adults who begin regular strength training achieve substantial strength gains within a few months.
  • As read in the Washington Post, the CDC stated the average American woman weighs 166.2 pounds – up from 140 pounds in 1960.  The average American male, today weighs 195.5 pounds – up from 165 in 1960.
  • As seen in Science Daily – drawing upon more than 100 interviews with professional staff in large corporations; those who self reported higher levels of confidence earned better wages and were promoted more quickly.

 

[ SOME TAKE AWAY THOUGHTS ]

  • consistent exercise decreases perceived levels of stress – when you feel less stress you make better food choices.
  • adults who begin consistent strength training, will not only see substantial strength gains, they are less likely to lose muscle mass – most importantly are less likely to fall and injure themselves.
  • consistent exercise, especially strength training, elevates one’s confidence – which in turn may lead to promotions and greater earnings at work.
