Strength Training

Anything that makes your muscles work counts as strength training, and you should aim for 2 days per week. While you can go to the gym to strength train, you don’t have to! There plenty of other ways to keep your muscles active.

Some muscle strengthening activities include:

  • Yard work/gardening
  • Carrying heavy loads
  • Exercises with resistance bands
  • Body weight exercises
  • Weight lifting
