Why “Lift for Men’s Health Month”?

This is a tracking and consistency challenge that is designed to help create healthy patterns around strength training to improve mission readiness and overall health. This challenge is for everyone but also designed to help create awareness about the importance of positive health attitudes and preventative health practices, like regular strength training. By using machines, free weights, kettlebells or any sort of external load consistently, you are helping your body and mind!

Resistant Training Benefits:

  • Helps body maintain a healthy balance of muscle and fat
  • Improves balance, coordination and flexibility
  • Protects bone density and joint health
  • Benefits other areas of fitness such as cardiovascular fitness
  • Increases body confidence and improves mood
  • Preserves muscle mass and improved bone health
  • Reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes

Completing the Challenge:

Track using the calendar below, each day you strength train. We encourage you to split up your workouts evenly throughout each muscle group and train for functional fitness. You decide how you train but we have a well-balanced program you can follow to get you started or change up your current training. The goal is to strength train at least 3 days of the week. Track and indicated days you trained utilizing the simple key on the calendar (you do not need to show all the exercises completed). You are encouraged to add in cardio on most days of the week to complement your training program, but you are only required to track days you strength train. All workouts must be completed at MCRD Fitness Center, exceptions for specific Active Duty only.
