Weight Training Equipment

There seems to be a universe of possibility when exploring weight training equipment. The different benches, weights, and machines can even be a little overwhelming to somebody who is not familiar with all the options. Even if you do have experience with weight training, you might still have unanswered questions. This informational page is designed to answer your questions and help clarify what each piece of weight training equipment does and who it is best suited for.

When you think of weight training equipment, the first thing that comes to mind is Arnold Schwarzenegger, right? Well, maybe not that vivid of an image, but certainly the term instills visions of chalk, straps and very large men grunting with each other. Well, weight training is no longer simply relegated to men seeking to look Herculean. People of all shapes, sizes, gender and ages are realizing the benefits of resistance training. Not only do you gain muscular strength that helps you in all aspects of your lifestyle, but you will also get the added benefits of increasing your meta bolism and thereby burn more calories everyday. Making it much easier to shed those extra pounds and keep them off!

It's a common misconception that performing only cardiovascular training will result in a leaner body. People spend hour after hour on their cardio equipment, completely neglecting the value of resistance training. While they spend hour after hour exercising on their cardio equipment, their body is not increasing it's lean body mass and so they don't get the added benefit of burning more calories when they are done with their cardio training. On the other hand, if they were to dedicate approximately half of their exercise routine to resistance training, they could burn more calories all day long, even in their sleep! So it's crucial that individuals seeking to lose weight spend enough time using the weight training equipment.
