What is Weight Lifting?
The sport of weight-lifting involves boosting muscle strength purely to enable the weight-lifter to lift the heaviest possible weights. By comparison, the aim of bodybuilders is to build the biggest muscles (note: muscle size and strength are not highly correlated), while people who do strength exercises or resistance-training or weight-training, are interested in improving overall muscle strength in order to raise their overall level of physical fitness. Weight-lifting involves following a very specific type of fitness and training regime.
Types of Weight Lifted
(1) Freeweights, such as dumbells, barbells and body-bars. Free weights allow you to work a particular muscle group and also to work other muscles (eg. triceps, pecs, abs, quads) that assist in the lift-action.
(2) Weights lifted by exercising on weight-training machines, such as leg-press and lat-pulldowns. Weight machines, which are ideal for circuit training, are designed to exercise only certain muscle groups, and resistance levels can be progressively increased for optimal load.
