There are many different types of trainings to get your body fit. Depending on what you want from your body is how you base your work out plan. I am going to be talking about weightlifting, weight training, body building, and resistance training. Anyone can do any of these activities, you just have to set your mind to it and stick with it.
Weightlifting is the basic activity of lifting the weights. If you just want a basic exercise program this is the one for you. Lifting weights can help you loose weight and change the shape of your body. Lifting weights will change the look and tone of your body if done correctly. By doing this activity you raise your metabolism, strengthen your muscle tone, strengthen your bones, and raise your confidence and self esteem.
Weight lifting is basically you setting goals to make yourself look and feel better. You are doing this at a steady pace, usually on your own or with a friend.
Weight training is the activity that involves the use of the actual weight. This is not for competing purposes, most people use weight training to help their performance in a different sport. People who do this type of training aren’t only lifting the weights. They can use to put around their ankles and run, to increase their speed. Also putting a weight on your chest and doing sit ups, this increases muscle mass in the abdominal area. Boxers put weights around their wrist and jog and punch the air to improve speed and agility. There are many other ways you can use the weights other than lifting.
Resistance training is even broader type of training than weight training because resistance can be supplied by weights, punching bags, machines, jump ropes, rubber strands and anything else that has to do with exercising. The number one result in the type of training is just getting physically stronger. A type of resistance training is called strength training. It basically focuses body strength and has nothing to do with appearance of the muscle size.
Bodybuilding is a more of a sport. The main goal of this sport is to get your muscles as large as they possibly can. Bodybuilders don’t only want their upper body bigger like most other people that work out. They want their entire body to be bigger and bulkier. They want every muscle proportionate, as well as minimize body fat and become even stronger than they already are. Contrary to what most people believe it is not the strength that a body builder is trying to prove, it is the size. To become a body builder you would need to weight train, increase your caloric intake by at least double daily, and get lots of rest between workouts. This sport takes a lot of dedication and hard work. Some benefits of bodybuilding include: reduced body fat, increased muscle mass, relieves stress, much more daily energy, builds confidence, builds strength for sports, more appeal to the opposite sex.
Power lifting is also a sport; this sport is about pure strength. This sport that consists of three events: The squat, bench press, and dead lift. Power lifters are very strong because they focus on developing that capacity exclusively. Power lifting is also no where near as popular as weightlifting. Reason being, there is not a very high level of competition as in weight lifting. These athletes main goal is to become the strongest man/woman in the world. When power lifting it is not important on what the technique is or how it looks, as long as the weight is lifted. Power lifters do not only lift weight they can lift anything from tree trunks to pulling semi-trucks.
