Upper body strength
why is it important?
1. strengthens connective tissues
“the human skeleton is held together in joints by connective tissues including tendons, ligaments, and cartilages. if these connective tissues become unstable, your bones are at risk of injury and fractures. the good news is that with upper-body strength resistance training, you can strengthen these connective tissues in all joints including shoulders, elbows, neck, spine, hands and wrists. this not only improves your joints stability and integrity, but also helps prevent joint injuries or bone damages.
2. bone strengthening
as you engage in any physical activity including workouts, changes like bone modeling and remodeling occur which helps them to adapt to weights by changing in shapes and sizes while at the same time helping in the removal of dead, weak, or damaged bone tissues. bones become stronger as muscles contract against them causing stress. this means that as your muscles become stronger, the exercise strengthen your bones and also improves in order to handle the contractions. bone strengthening is a shield against fractures and arthritis.” #consumerhealthdigest
