What are the health benefits
of using weights?
You will actually enjoy a number of benefits when incorporating weight lifting equipment as a part of your workout regime, including:
Weight training equipment doesn’t just work multiple muscles at once – it makes them work together, which is essential for balance and coordination. Studies have shown that those who perform free-weight exercises can improve their balance almost twice as much as those who perform similar exercises on resistance-training weight machines.
Assists With Weight Loss
The more muscle you work during a particular exercise, the more calories you’ll burn with every repetition. Gym weight equipment also allow you to perform compound movements that work your whole body at once – the exercise might seem simple but your calorie burn will be through the roof!
Reduced Risk of Injury
One of the best ways to prevent injury is to fix up your muscle imbalances – lifting bodyweight exercise equipment is a good way to achieve this. As they load each side of your body separately, they reduce the strength differences between muscles on each side – your strong side won’t be able to compensate.
