strength training

Just imagine a rigid, weak, and uncoordinated person trying to maintain their position on a surfboard on dry land, let alone a massive wave.
But you shouldn’t feel hopeless because there is a way to prevent muscle weakness from happening, and that is through exercise.
It's still bodybuilding and most of the same tenets hold, plant-based or not. It's just about adapting what we know to work already.
Here's a great lesson to learn: you need to respect your body in order to grow it.
Strong is never wrong, in every sport and in life.
So you want big muscles. Where do we start? We'll start with some of the ways that muscles grow through strength training and progressive resistance exercise.
While strength is definitely important and should be part of any runner’s off-season programming, so is the ability to develop power.
An athlete is going to look like whatever she is.
A muscle that is a flexor at one joint may also be a flexor or extensor at another. These are known as two-jointed muscles, and here are the most effective ways to train the ones in your lower body.
A two-jointed muscle involves multiple joints and certain considerations should be taken in training. Let's look at two-jointed arm muscles.
How to achieve peak conditioning and peak strength levels simultaneously? The correct interplay of both conditioning and strength can maximize your performance in either.
Men and women deserve the same opportunities in strength training but there are also differences that need to be addressed.
The vast majority of exercises integrated into our modern resistance training workouts focus on the concentric phase (muscle shortening/contracting) of the movement.
Tired of chalking up the same weights? We've all been there. Follow these strategies to get back on track in training.
I'm going to give you four workouts that each consist of only two exercises. The important thing is when you hit the gym, you do only these two exercise and you do them hard.
It is not unusual to find a divide when it comes to what style of training is best. A classic battle exists between High Intensity Training and Olympic weightlifting. Why not have both?
If your progress is stalled on your big lifts, this auxiliary work will help you break through.
