4 Things That Happen When You Add Conditioning to Your Strength Program

A complete fitness program includes strength and conditioning. Too many gym goers skip the cardio to focus more on strength. However, by skipping the cardio you are missing results and added benefits to all your lifting sessions.

Everyone admires a Lamborghini and how it looks, just like a well-developed physique.

It'll turn heads.

Unfortunately, when you take that Lamborghini out for a weekend drive and by the time you make it to the corner, it's smoking, squealing, and sputtering out to a dead stop.

No one is impressed when it's being towed back to the garage.

The engine is just as important as the frame.

So to get the total package in your fitness, add conditioning to your strength sessions.

Here are four benefits when you do...

1️⃣ Conditioning will improve your ability to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to your muscles via the development of more capillaries.

2️⃣ Do you want more energy? Conditioning improves aerobic fitness which increases mitochondria, leading to more energy production. It's like your body builds energy factories. The more you build, the more energy you produce. Who couldn't use more energy?

3️⃣ Improves the ability for waste products (such as lactate) to leave muscle and not impair the recovery process (better delivery and better clearance).

4️⃣ Improve recovery during your session (between sets) and recovery between your strength sessions which improves overall work capacity. Shorten your rest periods and get more work done in the same amount of time.
