Bodybuilding can be an advantageous workout with many physical benefits. According to Marie Spano, a registered dietitian, 700,000 Americans die every year from heart disease. By engaging in a physical activity, such as bodybuilding, you may reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. In addition to keeping your heart healthy, bodybuilding also keeps your bones and joints flexible and strong. This helps reduce your risk of developing osteoporosis and arthritis as you age.

Additionally, bodybuilding can allow you to improve your overall mental health. Weight training may help ease depression, anxiety, and stress. By improving your mood through bodybuilding, you can potentially deal with negative emotions in a more productive way. Feeling and looking your best through weight training can help improve your self-confidence, leading to being a more positive person in general.
