Resistance training is a great way to manage your weight and make you stronger and healthier. Strength training is the most popular form of resistance training but other methods are also very effective. 

When you participate in resistance training you increase the strength in your muscles because you are making them work against a force. You can actually perform this kind of training using your body weight to build strength and target a specific muscle group. This type of workout also has many other health benefits.

Resistance training makes you Mentally Stronger

Resistance training is mentally challenging. You will need to summon forces within you to overcome the resistance that the exercise demands. This requires mental strength and the more resistance training you perform the more mentally stronger you become.

You will need power to perform resistance training. It is an intense form of training and is not just about lifting weights or strength training. When you have to exert yourself repetitively to overcome a force then you are battling resistance. Most sports have an element of resistance in them.

Increasing Muscle Mass

If you want to increase your muscle mass or target muscle groups then resistance training is the best form of exercise. Muscle size (hypertrophy) changes will introduce different effects on the composition of your body. This can range from the production of force through weight training to increasing muscle fibre with all forms of training.

You want your body to have a higher amount of muscle relative to the fat in your body. When you achieve this your physique will be leaner and you will be more athletic looking. When you use the resistance training products from Fitness and Training you will intensify muscle contractions and end up with a very toned appearance.

As we get older we can suffer from a decline in muscle mass due to sarcopenia. The best way to prevent this is to undergo regular sessions of resistance training. It is the most effective form of exercise to stop muscle decline.

Rather than using free weights for building muscle, there are now many alternatives. A popular alternative is using resistance bands or tubes as they are comparatively inexpensive and can easily be transported to fitness classes or used for home fitness routines. 

Making your Bones Healthier

It is very important that you protect your bones and perform regular exercise for good bone health. Resistance training will improve your bone mineral density and prevent the onset of bone diseases.

Coordination Improvements

When you perform different resistance training exercises you will be using a wider range of muscles. Exercises that involve a number of muscles will distribute the resistance force more evenly. Exercising more of your muscles will help to prevent injuries through further resistance training.

Resistance training prepares your body more for activities in life that you will encounter. Lifting heavy loads will become easier with less risk of injury. You will become stronger and able to tackle a multitude of tasks.
