The compound benefits of strength training

There is a long list of positive benefits that result from proper strength training. One of the benefits is that it enables you to engage in other activities longer and more often than had you not strength trained. This benefit enables you to enjoy life more. One client reported that she was able to play with her grandchildren for three hours crawling around on the floor. Before she strength training she could not last that long.

Engaging in activities longer and more often can compound the benefits derived from strength training - kind of like compound interest. Examples:

Before strength training Marcus played golfed nine holes of golf every other day. He could not play on successive days as he was too drained of energy. He began strength training once a week. A year later he was play 18 holes of golf and then 18 holes the next day.
