Workout Wednesday: Strength Training

Gone are the days when the biggest fitness buffs out there stuck to cardio as their number one workout.

Today, they know they can't miss strength training's science-backed benefits, such as boosting longevity, building muscle mass, and protecting against diabetes, back pain, and more.

- Leg Press

- Squats
- Bent-over Row
