What should you know about resistance training? (I)

Resistance training develops tone and strength.

Resistance exercise does not mean resistance to exercise, instead it is a type of exercise that has gained popularity – although there is much detractor – during the last decade as researchers and not fitness gurus discover the many benefits that this type of exercise has. training that, for example, the governing body of exercise in the United States (American College of Sports Medicine) has included it in its recommendations for all Americans since 1998.

Resistance training is any exercise that causes muscles to contract with external resistance with the expectation of increasing strength, tone, mass, and / or endurance.

External resistance can be through machines, dumbbells, discs and bars, rubber tubes as well as your own body weight or any other object that causes the muscles to contract.

There are several styles of resistance exercises: Olympic lifting where athletes lift the weight overhead, powerlifting where users perform, squats, deadlifts, bench press … and the weightlifting itself where heavy weight is lifted. and usually with few repetitions.

It is technically incorrect to refer to resistance exercise as strength training. In contrast, strength training is more precisely described as an endurance exercise that develops strength.

Resistance exercise works by causing microscopic damage or tears to muscle cells, which in turn are quickly repaired by the body to help muscles regenerate and strengthen.

The breakdown of muscle fiber is called “catabolism” and the repair and regrowth of muscle tissue is called “anabolism.”

Anabolics mean to grow, and that is exactly what happens after muscle fibers are broken with resistance exercises. In fact, many biological growth processes in the body require some collapse or catabolism before growing again. It is important to note that muscles heal and grow when you are exercising, and that is why it is necessary to allow time between workouts for recovery.
