Resistance for rebalance!
Today let’s focus on the importance of RESISTANCE TRAINING for your hormone balance.
There isn’t a mode of exercise that is superior to others but you can’t deny the benefits of resistance training. Resistance training can be…
🏋🏻♂️ Body weight exercises such as push ups, lunges, squats, pull ups etc.
🏋🏻♂️ The use “resistance” bands
🏋🏻♂️ Weight training is also known as resistance training
🏋🏻♂️ Strength style yoga poses
Essentially resistance training is any mode of exercise where you are resisting force such as gravity, from a band, a weight, or your own body.
So how does this balance your hormones?
It helps to promote healthy blood sugar and insulin regulation. When blood sugar or insulin is out of balance it triggers cortisol hormone imbalances which negatively impacts your thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and other hormones. Resistance training also encourages mitochondrial function and growth. These mitochondria live within our body’s cells and are in charge of respiration and energy production.
As part of the challenge schedule at least 3 days of resistance training of your choice per week. Practice this habit for the next 14 days to improve health and feel your best!
