The Psychological benefits of strength

Strength training has huge benefits for mental health and confidence.

I really believe in this, mainly because I have experienced it myself and have seen it change the lives of people that I’ve worked with.

Taking as read all the information out there regarding the positive hormonal effect that exercising has on the brain and the body.

And the fact that making regular time for exercising gives you a much needed escape from the stresses of daily life and work, a window of time that is all about you, when the outside world can be forgotten and the only thing that

matters is the weight in front of you.

There is something beautiful about the simplicity of strength training. Goals are simple to identify and progression is easy to measure. You either lift something or you don’t. There is no middle ground.

When you work diligently towards a clearly defined goal and step closer and closer to it in each session, until you finally achieve it, that produces some amazing psychological improvements.

You develop an increased sense of self-belief, determination and confidence.

You build up a psychological resilience, an ability to carry on in the face of adversity that translates to all other facets of your life. Combine this with improvements in how you look, feel and move and the total experience can be life changing!
