Resistance Training Health Benefits

Studies show ten weeks of resistance training may increase lean weight by 1.4 kg, increase resting metabolic rate by 7%, and reduce fat weight by 1.8 kg. Resistance training can prevent and manage type 2 diabetes by decreasing visceral fat, and balancing glucose and insulin sensitivity. It also enhances cardiovascular health, by reducing resting blood pressure, decreasing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides, and increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.

Low Back Rounding

Low Back Rounding

If your low back rounds during a squat it can lead to many back and posture problems, such as back pain. Fix this muscle imbalance by doing these corrective exercises:

Myofascial release (e.g. foam roll) and static stretches for hamstrings, and adductors, and do an abdominal stretch on a ball or on the floor (pictures shown below).
Also, strengthening the Erector Spinae, Gluteus Maximus, and Hip Flexors will help.

Back Arching

Similar to how you don’t want your back to round during squat type motions, you don’t want it to arch too much either. Fix this muscle imbalance by doing these Corrective Exercises:

Myofascial release + stretches for the quads, lats, hip flexors, and erector spinae (pictures shown below). Keep in mind it will also help to do extra abs, such as crunches and planks.
