Why You Should Incorporate Weight Training Into Your Fitness Routine

WHY YOU SHOULD INCORPORATE WEIGHT TRAINING| Into Your FITNESS ROUTINE Resistance training builds better muscle endurance, in addition to strength. Lifting smaller amounts of weight with more reps builds more muscle strength than lifting larger amounts of weight with fewer reps. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF RESISTANCE TRAINING: isometric AND isotonic STRENGTH TRAINING. Most gym exercises are isotonic: isotonic exercises involve contracting a muscle to overcome resistance, while isometric exercises involve pushing against a fixed resistance. STRENGTH TRAINING IMPROVES FLEXIBILITY, BALANCE, COORDINATION AND POSTURE. Lean muscle mass increases resting metabolism, which helps burn more fat in the long run. In addition to building muscle, weight training strengthens muscle connective tissues that can increase joint stability and lower the risk of injury. IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO START!
