As far as strength exercises with dumbbells or dumbbells are concerned, research shows that women can achieve as much health benefits as men.
According to several studies, strength training can help increase stamina, balance, flexibility, and bone density. It also prevents injuries and increases sleep and happiness. Here, it is effective in preventing diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis, which are increased related to aging.
According to a research team from the Department of Exercise Science at the University of New South Wales, Australia, when comparing the results of men and women between the ages of 50 and 90 who started resistance training programs, men are more likely to have absolute muscle size, but when it comes to body size, women do. It has also been found that it can achieve almost the same effect.
“It is possible to compare the effects of strength training differently depending on whether it is’absolute’ or’relative’,” said Dr. Amanda Hagstrom of the research team. “On the absolute side through strength training, men achieve greater improvement in muscle mass or strength. In terms of relative body size, women also have the same effect as men.”
Through 30 studies on resistance training, the research team compared muscle mass and strength gains in about 650 men and 750 women over the age of 50.
Dr. Hagstrom said, “We found no sexual differences in the subjects’ relative muscle size or changes in upper body strength.”
In terms of absolute terms, men gained more muscle and improved upper and lower body strength. In the relative lower body strength, women increased a lot.
Dr. Hagsttom said, “This study suggests the possibility that older men and women will have to organize training programs differently to maximize the effectiveness of their training.” You have to do it, and women have more ways to exercise to increase lower body strength.”
The results of this study (Sex Differences in Adaptations in Muscle Strength and Size Following Resistance Training in Older Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis) were published in’Sports Medicine’.
