Strength training: what you need and how long

Filed under: Health — admin @ 12:43 am

Strength training encompasses any of the following:
1) Free weights, such as barbells and dumbbells.
2) Ankle cuffs and vests containing different increments of weight.
3) Resistance (elastic) bands of varying length and tension that you flex using your arms and legs.
4) Exercises that use your body weight to create resistance against gravity.

A beginner’s strength-building workout takes as little as 20 minutes, and you won’t need to grunt, strain, or sweat like a cartoon bodybuilder. The key is developing a well-rounded program, performing the exercises with good form, and being consistent. You will experience noticeable gains in strength within four to eight weeks.

Good luck!
