Weight training is beneficial to the body’s overall wellness. This form of training is exercise that the body is subjected to in hopes of escalating the amount of resistance with the use of weights. The human body is designed to work against gravity, and in that process the body adapts itself to the heightened level of resistance and becomes powerful.
One of the many benefits of weight training is that it will increase the size of the muscles because our bodies will adapt to the increased the magnitude of the load the body can carry. This will lead to more strength, which in turn adds to what the body is capable of performing.
An individual has to work consistently and diligently to develop all the various muscle groups. If the goal is body building, it will take complete and inclusive knowledge of the different techniques of weight training, and power exercises.
The human bodies’ muscles are composed of fibers. As individuals lift weights, the fibers will tire out, and as a result new muscle fibers are built up. However, this will only occur if the training is sufficient, and the muscle fibers tire out appropriately. To accomplish this, the trainee needs to lift weights in sets of repetitions of 8-15 (varies on the exercise) ensuring that they do each set to exhaustion.
Here are a few points to keep in mind:
- Weights must be lifted at 8-12 repetitions per set for the upper body, and 12-15 per set for the lower body.
- With each set, they must be carried to exhaustion.
- Muscle groups that are exercised on a specific day should be rested the next day because muscles need time to evolve and grow.
- The goal is to slowly, but progressively, increase the intensity of each exercise. Try doing sets faster and cut back on rest time.
