Strength training

Strength training is for doing physical exercises and has many health benefits. It involves use of heavy weights to oppose gravity or using elastic forces. This has several health benefits apart from increasing the size and strength of muscles.

Strength training is done initially by lifting as much weight as possible by a person. Then the muscles respond to grow larger and stronger. As the person repeats the process the muscles grow larger and he/she need to steadily increase the weights also. This is how the process expands muscles gain size and strength.

Strength training reduces the potential for injuries to the body. It improves cardiac functioning and thus reduces the chances of a heart attack. Bone, muscles and ligament get strength and grow over time. Cholesterol level also increases.
