Bringing Weightlifting to All. On a daily basis, we need to squat, stand, pick something off the ground, move something overhead. As much as these are the requirements of daily living, they are to some degree also the requirements of weightlifting movements. On a deeper level, biomechanics, motor control, skill acquisition, physiology are all elements of weightlifting movements and can be translated to many other fundamental movements we perform on a daily basis. Whether you are an athlete who is trying to get stronger or faster, or you are an average joe looking to be able to move about freely and be strong enough for your job, the sport of weightlifting not only builds up physical strength but mental abilities.

Current health news articles Bones, joints and muscles are greatly altered during pregnancy. Relaxing helps to soften the cartilage as well as the ligaments and thus makes the joints a little unstable. It also makes the joints prone to injury. These all result due to the changes in weight during pregnancy.

Resistance training Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles. When properly performed, strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, improved cardiac function, and elevated HDL ("good") cholesterol. Training commonly uses the technique of progressively increasing the force output of the muscle through incremental weight increases and uses a variety of exercises and types of equipment to target specific muscle groups. Strength training is primarily an anaerobic activity, although some proponents have adapted it to provide the benefits of aerobic exercise through circuit training.
