What is interesting and what I like most about strength training is that it requires you to put you to work out with discipline and patience. Strength training forces you to practice perseverance, because transforming your body, and improving body composition takes time. But there is also the incredible element of instant gratification because each workout makes you burn calories, increases metabolism, and releases a cascade of hormones that make you feel super happy, and cheerful. This dichotomy of having to wait and persist day after day to see results is fed by a daily instant gratification. As a result, not only will you look better but feel better! It gives you a sense of strength, improve your self-esteem and better vision on life.
