Or they can simply lower weights more slowly than they lift them: for example, by taking two seconds to lift each weight and four seconds to lower it.

Partial reps Partial reps, as the name implies, involves movement through only part of the normal path of an exercise. Partial reps can be performed with heavier weights. Usually, only the easiest part of the repetition is attempted. Burns Burns involve mixing partial reps into a set of full range reps in order to increase intensity. The partials can be performed at any part of the exercise movement, depending on what works best for the particular exercise.

Also, the partials can either be added after the end of a set or in some alternating fashion with the full range reps. Other techniques[ edit ] Progressive movement training Progressive movement training attempts to gradually increase the range of motion throughout a training cycle.

The lifter will start with a much heavier weight than they could handle in the full range of motion, only moving through the last 3—5" of the movement. Throughout the training cycle, the lifter will gradually increase the range of motion until the joint moves through the full range of the exercise. This is a style that was made popular by Paul Anderson. Time under tension refers to the amount of time your muscle under stress during a set. This consists of the time spent in the concentric or the shortening phase, peak contraction phase, as well as the eccentric or the lengthening phase.

For example, if you go perform a set of 10 reps and each rep takes 3 seconds to complete, your muscle is under tension for a total of 30 seconds. If you were to perform the same exercise but if you spent 2 seconds in the concentric phase, 1 second to stop during peak contraction, and 3 seconds to lower the weight during the eccentric phase of the rep, the same 10 reps would end up putting your muscles under tension for about 60 seconds.

Using a wrist strap. Wrist straps Wrist straps lifting straps are sometimes used to assist in gripping very heavy weights. Wrist straps can be used to isolate muscle groups like in "lat pull-downs", where the trainee would primarily use the latissimus dorsi muscles of the back rather than the biceps. They are particularly useful for the deadlift. Some lifters avoid using wrist straps to develop their grip strength , just as some go further by using thick bars.

Wrist straps can allow a lifter initially to use more weight than they might be able to handle safely for an entire set, as unlike simply holding a weight, if it is dropped then the lifter must descend with it or be pulled down. Straps place stress on the bones of the wrist which can be potentially harmful if excessive. Combined techniques[ edit ] Strength training may involve the combining of different training methods such as weight training, plyometrics, bodyweight exercises, and ballistic exercises.

This is often done in order to improve a person's ability to apply their strength quickly.

Or in other words, to improve their ability to apply explosive power. Loaded plyometrics[ edit ] Loaded plyometrics involve the addition of weights to jumping exercises. The weights may be held or worn. For instance, vertical jumps whilst holding a trap bar or jumping split squats whilst holding dumbbells.

This helps to enhance the explosive power of the athlete. Ideally, both sets of exercises should move through similar ranges of movement; such a pairing is called a complex, or contrast, pair. The intention is to utilise the intense nervous system activation and increased muscle fibre recruitment from the heavy lift in the plyometric exercise; thereby increasing the power with which it can be performed.

Over a period of training, this may result in the athlete being able to perform the plyometric exercise more powerfully, without the requirement of the preceding heavy lift. Ballistic training[ edit ] Ballistic training, sometimes referred to as power training, is based upon the principle of maximising the acceleration phase of the exercise and minimising the deceleration phase; this helps to improve the athlete's explosive power.

On this basis, ballistic training may include exercises which involve the throwing of a weight, such as a medicine ball, or jumping whilst holding or wearing a weight. The heavy set should be performed fast with the light set being performed as fast as possible.

The joints should not be locked as this inhibits muscle fibre recruitment and reduces the speed at which the exercise can be performed. A loaded plyometric exercise, or ballistic exercise, may take the place of the light lift. Similarly to complex training, contrast loading relies on the intense nervous system activation and enhanced muscle fibre recruitment from the heavy lift to help improve the power with which the subsequent exercise can be performed.

By way of explanation, if a light weight is lifted, and then a heavy weight is lifted, and then the same light weight is lifted again, then the light weight will feel lighter the second time it is lifted.

This is due to the increased PAP effect from the heavy lift allowing for greater power to be applied and thus making the subsequent lighter lift feel even lighter than before.

Explosive power training programmes are frequently designed to specifically utilise the PAP effect. Risks and concerns[ edit ] This section contains instructions, advice, or how-to content.

July Strength training is a safe form of exercise when the movements are controlled, and carefully defined. Or some safety measures can also be taken before the training. However, as with any form of exercise, improper execution and the failure to take appropriate precautions can result in injury. A helmet, boots, gloves, and back belt can aide in injury prevention. Principles of weight training safety apply to strength training.

Main article: Bodybuilding Bodybuilding is a sport in which the goal is to increase muscle size and definition.

Bodybuilding increases the endurance of muscles, as well as strength, though not as much as if they were the primary goals. Bodybuilders compete in bodybuilding competitions, and use specific principles and methods of strength training to maximize muscular size and develop extremely low levels of body fat. In contrast, most strength trainers train to improve their strength and endurance while not giving special attention to reducing body fat below normal.

Strength trainers tend to focus on compound exercises to build basic strength, whereas bodybuilders often use isolation exercises to visually separate their muscles, and to improve muscular symmetry. Pre-contest training for bodybuilders is different again, in that they attempt to retain as much muscular tissue as possible while undergoing severe dieting.

However, the bodybuilding community has been the source of many strength training principles, techniques, vocabulary, and customs. Nutrition[ edit ] It is widely accepted that strength training must be matched by changes in diet in order to be effective. Although aerobic exercise has been proven to have an effect on the dietary intake of macronutrients, strength training has not [47] and an increase in dietary protein is generally believed to be required for building skeletal muscle.

A review of 49 research studies found that supplementation of protein in the diet of healthy adults increased the size and strength of muscles during prolonged resistance exercise training; protein intakes of greater than 1.

It was once thought that a high-protein diet entails risk of kidney damage, but studies have shown that kidney problems only occur in people with previous kidney disease. However failure to properly hydrate can put an increased strain on the kidney's ability to function. The type of nutrients consumed affects the response of the body, and nutrient timing whereby protein and carbohydrates are consumed prior to and after workout has a beneficial impact on muscle growth.

A protein shake is often consumed immediately [53] following the workout, because both protein uptake and protein usage are increased at this time. To maximise muscle protein anabolism, recovery drink should contain glucose dextrose , protein usually whey hydrolysate containing mainly dipeptides and tripeptides, and leucine.

However, the effectiveness of some products is disputed and others are potentially harmful. Sex differences in mass gains[ edit ] Due to the androgenic hormonal differences between males and females, the latter are generally unable to develop large muscles regardless of the training program used. Muscle is denser than fat, so someone who builds muscle while keeping the same body weight will occupy less volume; if two people weigh the same and are the same height but have different lean body mass percentages, the one with more muscle will appear thinner.

Various combinations of specific exercises , machines, dumbbells, and barbells allow trainees to exercise body parts in numerous ways. A lifting strap.

A lifting belt. Other types of equipment include: Lifting straps, which allow more weight to be lifted by transferring the load to the wrists and avoiding limitations in forearm muscles and grip strength Weightlifting belts, which are meant to brace the core through intra-abdominal pressure.

Controversy exists regarding the safety of these devices [24] and their proper use is often misunderstood.

Weighted clothing , bags of sand, lead shot , or other materials that are strapped to wrists, ankles, torso or other body parts to increase the amount of work required by muscles Gloves can improve grip, prevent the formation of calluses on the hands, relieve pressure on the wrists, and provide support.

June Learn how and when to remove this template message The leg extension is an isolation exercise. An isolation exercise is one where the movement is restricted to one joint only. For example, the leg extension is an isolation exercise for the quadriceps. Specialized types of equipment are used to ensure that other muscle groups are only minimally involved—they just help the individual maintain a stable posture—and movement occurs only around the knee joint.

Isolation exercises involve machines, dumbbells, barbells free weights , and pulley machines. Compound exercises work several muscle groups at once, and include movement around two or more joints. For example, in the leg press, movement occurs around the hip, knee and ankle joints. This exercise is primarily used to develop the quadriceps, but it also involves the hamstrings, glutes and calves. Compound exercises are generally similar to the ways that people naturally push, pull and lift objects, whereas isolation exercises often feel a little unnatural.

Each type of exercise has its uses.

Strength Training Books

Compound exercises build the basic strength that is needed to perform everyday pushing, pulling and lifting activities.

Isolation exercises are useful for "rounding out" a routine, by directly exercising muscle groups that cannot be fully exercised in the compound exercises. The type of exercise performed also depends on the individual's goals.

Those who seek to increase their performance in sports would focus mostly on compound exercises, with isolation exercises being used to strengthen just those muscles that are holding the athlete back. Similarly, a powerlifter would focus on the specific compound exercises that are performed at powerlifting competitions. However, those who seek to improve the look of their body without necessarily maximizing their strength gains including bodybuilders would put more of an emphasis on isolation exercises.

Both types of athletes, however, generally make use of both compound and isolation exercises [26].

Free weights versus weight machines[ edit ] Exercise balls allow a wider range of free weight exercises to be performed. They are also known as Swiss balls, stability balls, fitness balls, gym balls, sports balls, therapy balls or body balls.

They are sometimes confused with medicine balls. Free weights include dumbbells , barbells , medicine balls , sandbells , and kettlebells. Unlike weight machines , they do not constrain users to specific, fixed movements, and therefore require more effort from the individual's stabilizer muscles.

It is often argued that free weight exercises are superior for precisely this reason. For example, they are recommended for golf players, since golf is a unilateral exercise that can break body balances, requiring exercises to keep the balance in muscles.

Some free weight exercises can be performed while sitting or lying on an exercise ball. There are a number of weight machines that are commonly found in neighborhood gyms. The Smith machine is a barbell that is constrained to vertical movement. The cable machine consists of two weight stacks separated by 2.

There are also exercise-specific weight machines such as the leg press. A multigym includes a variety of exercise-specific mechanisms in one apparatus.

One limitation of many free weight exercises and exercise machines is that the muscle is working maximally against gravity during only a small portion of the lift. Some exercise-specific machines feature an oval cam first introduced by Nautilus which varies the resistance, so that the resistance, and the muscle force required, remains constant throughout the full range of motion of the exercise.

Push-pull workout[ edit ] A push—pull workout is a method of arranging a weight training routine so that exercises alternate between push motions and pull motions. Another push—pull technique is to arrange workout routines so that one day involves only push usually chest, shoulders and triceps exercises, and an alternate day only pull usually back and biceps exercises so the body can get adequate rest. In "isotonic" exercises the force applied to the muscle does not change while the length of the muscle decreases or increases while in "plyometric" exercises the length of the muscle stretches and contracts rapidly to increase the power output of a muscle.

Weight training is primarily an isotonic form of exercise, as the force produced by the muscle to push or pull weighted objects should not change though in practice the force produced does decrease as muscles fatigue. Any object can be used for weight training, but dumbbells, barbells, and other specialised equipment are normally used because they can be adjusted to specific weights and are easily gripped.

Many exercises are not strictly isotonic because the force on the muscle varies as the joint moves through its range of motion. Movements can become easier or harder depending on the angle of muscular force relative to gravity; for example, a standard biceps curl becomes easier as the hand approaches the shoulder as more of the load is taken by the structure of the elbow.

Originating from Nautilus, Inc. Plyometrics exploit the stretch-shortening cycle of muscles to enhance the myotatic stretch reflex. This involves rapid alternation of lengthening and shortening of muscle fibers against resistance.

Strength training

The resistance involved is often a weighted object such as a medicine ball or sandbag, but can also be the body itself as in jumping exercises or the body with a weight vest that allows movement with resistance. Plyometrics is used to develop explosive speed, and focuses on maximal power instead of maximal strength by compressing the force of muscular contraction into as short a period as possible, and may be used to improve the effectiveness of a boxer's punch, or to increase the vertical jumping ability of a basketball player.

Care must be taken when performing plyometric exercises because they inflict greater stress upon the involved joints and tendons than other forms of exercise.

Health benefits[ edit ] Benefits of weight training include increased strength, muscle mass, endurance, bone and bone mineral density, insulin sensitivity, GLUT 4 density, HDL cholesterol, improved cardiovascular health and appearance, and decreased body fat, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

Stronger muscles improve posture, provide better support for joints , and reduce the risk of injury from everyday activities. Older people who take up weight training can prevent some of the loss of muscle tissue that normally accompanies aging —and even regain some functional strength—and by doing so, become less frail. Weight-bearing exercise also helps to prevent osteoporosis.

For many people in rehabilitation or with an acquired disability , such as following stroke or orthopaedic surgery, strength training for weak muscles is a key factor to optimise recovery.NOOody expects to become stronger aflef , sel of drills or a si!
