Why Weight Training? • If you want to lose fat or change your body, one of the most important things you can do is lift weights. • Diet and cardio are equally important, but when it comes to changing how your body looks, weight training wins hands down. • It’s not about being a body builder, professional wrestler, or professional athlete…..
It’s about YOU and a healthy lifestyle
Benefits of Weight Training Increases muscle strength and mass Helps prevent injuries Helps control weight Improves sport performance Increased metabolism
Improves appearance – self image Strengthens bones, connective tissue - aging Helps manage stress Boosts the immune system Helps protect against certain diseases
Safety Rules Never fool around in the weight room results injury Always use proper form/technique while lifting injury prevention Make sure there are no obstructions/bystanders in your lifting area Wear proper footwear Make sure pins are secure in the machine before you lift Follow proper progression of weight advancement for each exercise Avoid the temptation to lift as much as you can Concentrate on the exercise that you are performing. Do not carry out conversations at the same time. • Stay in control of the lift at all times. Movements should be smooth. • Always work with a spotter for bench press, squats, leg press and any other exercise that you need assistance with. • • • • • • • •
Weight Room Etiquette • Put all weights back after use (even if you found them in the wrong place) • Wipe down all benches and machines after use. • Be aware that others are waiting to use the machine or bench that you are on. Do the exercise and move on. • Do not drop the weights or let the weight plates bang together. • Grunting or screaming out during the lift is not necessary. • The weight room is cleaned up after all classes. All need to help.
Types Of Weights Free Weights – Dumbbells • Designed to be held in one hand • Can be used in conjunction w/weight benches – Barbells • Can be used in conjunction w/weight benches • Weight Plates are usually placed on barbells to adjust weight (use safety clips) Weight Machines – Used to guide you through an exercise – Some are multi-use, some isolate certain muscles
Reps: Repetition, one complete movement of a particular exercise Set: A group of consecutive reps performed in succession – 8 bicep curls with each arm Overload: To build muscle, use more resistance than your muscles are used to – increase your workload to avoid plateaus - enough weight to complete the number of reps Progression: increase your intensity regularly(weekly/monthly) – Increase the amount of weight, changing your sets/reps, changing the exercises Specificity: train for your goal – strength - train with heavier weights closer to your 1 RM (1 rep max)). – weight loss, lighter weights, variety of reps to target different muscles fibers Rest & Recovery: Rest days are just as important as workout days – rest periods that your muscles grow and change, – make sure you're not working the same muscle groups 2 days in a row
