Resistance Exercise’s Impact On Immunity

To enhance your immunity, focusing on building muscle strength could be your most effective strategy. This is based on research indicating that weightlifting not only enhances physical strength but also enhances the body’s capacity to combat illnesses. Scientists conducted a thorough analysis of data from various studies involving healthy adults to investigate the impact of weightlifting on the body’s immune response. Their findings revealed that intense resistance training brought about notable changes in biomarkers connected to immune system function and regulation. Adults who committed to vigorous gym workouts exhibited heightened levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which signify a robust immune response capable of aiding in illness resistance and a quicker recovery.
