Free Weight Training by Live Fit for Women

Using free weights as part of an exercise program can be a safe and effective means of improving strength and fitness for all ages and fitness levels, for men and women.

They provide a stimulus for muscle-fitness development, which can increase the amount of calories you burn (body fat reduction), increase muscle size, enhance muscle strength, power, and endurance, and increase strength of bones. Increased muscle strength can also have a positive impact on quality of life for older adults.

It is important to realize that some instruction is necessary if you have never used free weights before, or are not that familiar with the use of free weights. Technique, safety precautions, and the exercises that can be performed with free weights are the most important considerations.

Free weights come in two basic types: · Barbell: Long bars (4-6 ft.) with weights attached or slots to add weight plates. · Dumbbell: Smaller, single hand-held weights.

Free weights, and more specifically dumbbells, come in more varieties and are easier to use. Dumbbells come in chrome, unfinished metal, plastic, thin foam covering, and concrete. They can be purchased in weight increments of five pounds ranging in weight from five to 150 pounds each.

The handles on free weights are important because they provide friction for a better grip. The size of the handle in relation to your own weight is also an important consideration. The handle should feel comfortable in your hand and should not cause undue muscle fatigue when lifting the weights. It is important to practice some exercises with the weights before purchasing a set.

An important first step in the process is to decide on the correct amount of weight for your strength and strength development.
