Weight training at the gym or at home, can be adapted to the characteristics and physical condition of your body. If you are looking forward to burn fat, tone up your muscles or achieve a better and lean muscle definition, weight training can be formidable to radically improve your physique and prolong your life healthy.
A well defined and developed muscular body has always attracted the attention and is a reflection of strength and health.
Strength training is becoming more usual and popular as part of the training regimen in the practice of certain sports.
Weigh training is one of my favorite fitness activities and one I have always given priority.
If you are a woman or man, a teenager, an average adult or an older person there is a workout for you.
¿Did you know that as earlier as our thirties the muscle tissue gradually begin to disappear as a natural part of the aging process? This explains the propensity in the accumulation of fat and loss of muscle tone after that age.
You can choose to train with free weights (barbells and dumbbells), weight machines, a combination of both or Bodyweight Training.
Weight training builds lean and strong muscle (that you won't get with a cardiovascular workout), strengthens bones, ligaments, tendons and increase your basal metabolism (which allows you a greater fat-burning). In the particular case of women contributes to the delay in osteoporosis and what few women know is that doing weights can also increase fat loss in a spectacular way. For men the weight training let you maintain high levels of tetosterone if you train at least three times a week in sessions from 30 to 60 minutes.
When you start or intensify weight training you must know your muscles first and how to work them properly.
A good weight training program must include all the muscle groups without exception.
You can optimize muscle activation with focused mental attention on the muscles your exercising and how each muscle works, that higher activation is linked to better muscle growth.
Breathing is also important and the advice for weight trainees is to consciously "exhale on effort" (when you are lifting weight, the concentric part of the repetition) and to inhale when lowering the weight (the eccentric part of the repetition).
