Weight Training Tips
A large number of people including recreational athletes, lack muscular fitness. The muscle’s ability to make repeated efforts is what constitutes Endurance.
Doing muscle-strengthening exercises improve your stamina and your energy. People with strong muscles are less likely to suffer everyday muscle aches and pains.
Resistance training. To have muscular fitness, it involves resistance training; you gradually overload your muscles so that they get stronger and stronger with each overload. The best exercises suited for it are those exercises that use your body to exert force, like push-ups, chin-ups, and sit-ups. Normally most people use weight training, popularly known as weight lifting which provides the required resistance.
Strength is achieved from resistance depending on how much weight you lift. The more you lift, the stronger you become. Endurance is achieved through repetition, the number of times you lift a weight in succession is directly proportional to your endurance.
It’s advisable to start weight-training program with light weights and easy repetition. Then gradually increase. Start with a weight that you can lift comfortably at least 8 to 12 times.
Do one exercise for each muscle group, moving from the larger muscles e.g. the legs down to smaller ones like arms and biceps.
Strength gains come when you work with close to the heaviest weight that you can lift comfortably. You’ll see the quickest benefits if you lift the maximum amount during fewer repetitions of each exercise.
It’s important that all this is done the right way or else you could injure a muscle. Breathe while lifting the weights. Train on days when you’re not doing hard aerobic workouts. Allow at least one day between weight-training sessions to let your muscles recover. Proper recovery helps you build strength faster.
