Weight lifting is an exercise used to strengthen the muscles in the body with resistance. Weight lifting can be done with machines, free weights (barbells and dumbbells), or body weight.
Free weights are beneficial because they require balance, coordination, and stability to maintain proper form throughout the exercise. Free weights are often used in cross-training routines to improve strength, stamina, and muscular definition.
Weight lifting can increase muscle mass, boost metabolism, make everyday tasks easier, and reduce body fat. Regularly working out with weights will also increase bone strength, which will reduce the risk of injury.
Weight lifting can be performed 2-4 days per week for maximum results.
