Why You NEED More Muscle- Fitness Performance Tips

Muscle is an amazing tissue of the body. It is the very part of our body that gives us the control that we want and need in life. The mind is often useless if it doesn’t have muscle to put thought into action. It is also a major part of our body’s defense mechanism. You muscle protects things structurally (joints, bones, etc.), metabolically and physically whether by means of escape or defense from the dangers both human and non that we encounter.

BUILDING MORE MUSCLE DOES NOT MEAN BULKY

Protection is the first area to mention when discussing why you need more muscle. Muscles are major protectors of the joints and bones in our body. Strong muscles that span joints serve as braces for the forces that would otherwise separate and render these joints useless. The same goes for muscles that support long bones. If we didn’t have muscles that were able to absorb the impact of forces that we experience every day than we would always be dealing with fractures and immobility. In fact the activities that promote muscle building are the very same activities that increase bone mineral density, which is especially important for women later in life after menopause. Muscles also help us to maintain our balance protecting us from falls. Muscle tissue is also huge regulator when it comes to blood pressure and thus has indirect protection of many different major organs including the heart, brain, kidneys, and eyes.
