Resistance training or weight training can help you develop self-confidence and body satisfaction by building and toning your muscles, and increasing your strength and muscular endurance. It’s the most efficient way to improve muscle definition. Many people who work out only two or three sessions per week can expect to see improved muscle tone after only 8 to 10 weeks. It can also help maintain lean body mass which can mean weight loss, decreased risk of osteoporosis and improved coordination and balance.Those who train with weights can be put into four general categories:
1. weight trainers
Those typically referred to as “weight trainers” train with weights for general fitness purposes, or to improve their performance in another sport. Those who train specifically to increase their muscle size are referred to as “bodybuilders.” Those who train purely for strength often participate in a sport called “powerlifting.” Weightlifting is the only weight sport that is included as an event in the Olympics. The only athletes who are referred to by those familiar with the weight sports as true “weightlifters” are those who train on the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.
Weight training strengthens not only muscles, but other structures as well, like tendons (which attach muscle to bone), ligaments (which connect bones at joint areas) and joint capsules. Stronger muscles and joints are less prone to injury. Weight training may also increase bone strength by helping maximize bone mineral deposition in young adults and minimize its loss later in life.
Weight training raises your basal metabolism … which causes you to burn more calories 24 hours-a-day. It has positive effects on virtually all of your more-than 600 muscles and it decreases your resting blood pressure. Studies also show that weight training lowers the resting heart rate, increases the blood level of good (HDL) cholesterol and strengthens the immune system.
