WEIGHT TRAINING

 

WEIGHT TRAINING DOES IT ALL: LEAN MUSCLE, BODYBUILDING, STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING AND FAT LOSS

We don’t measure the quality of a workout by pain, but by progress!

BUILD MUSCLE MASS OR JUST LOOK LEAN AND TONED

Whilst ‘weight training’ is often associated with huge, steroid-fuelled bodybuilders, it is, in fact, far more versatile than most people think. To stimulate totally different metabolic effects, it’s simply a matter of changing such things as how much weight is used, sets and reps performed, rest time between sets, etc., etc. This means the same programme can either build muscle mass or just create a lean and toned look.

INCREASE YOUR METABOLIC RATE AND BURN FAT

A properly designed, tough weights-workout can stimulate your metabolic rate for up to 48 hours, during which time your body increases the amount of fat that it burns.

If you’d like to learn how we can both build muscle (or tone-up) and burn fat at the same time, check out our blog post on the subject.

IMPROVE POSTURE, BONE DENSITY AND DEVELOP A POWERFUL CORE

It’s well proven that weights and resistance-based workouts, involving the major muscle groups leads to improvements in posture and bone density. Also, exercises such as squatting, and deadlifting are highly effective for developing your core muscles.

REDUCE STRESS AND SLEEP BETTER

The challenge of a weights workout makes the body release powerful hormones called endorphins. These help your body to relax and increase your feeling of well-being. And many of our clients tell us they even sleep better after a weights’ session.

I have been training on and off with weights for a number of years, and like many others, I have had some varying degrees of success.

In 2005 I attended a Natural Bodybuilding contest and the physiques that were presented on stage were the inspiration that I was seeking and I wanted to compete against them. Having set this goal I now needed to plan how I was going to achieve it?  Fortunately, I met Paul Lonsdale and Ann Hirst who own and run Get Physical at Hunters Bar in Sheffield.

Through Paul’s knowledge of supplements and foods, he constructed a diet plan to enable me to shed pounds and maintain muscle mass. On June the 4th at Holmfirth Civic Hall I competed in the Yorkshire NPA Natural Bodybuilding contest, placed first in the novice category against ten other competitors and was awarded a trophy for the best first timer on stage. During the preparation for the contest,

Paul’s advice was invaluable to me and I am sure that my condition would not have been what it was without Paul’s advice. I will now compete again in October in the NPA British Finals. Once again I will be relying on Paul’s advice and support to improve on the condition that enabled me to achieve my personal weight loss goals and win the Yorkshire NPA title.

If you, like me and many others need advice and support that you can rely on I call in to see Paul or Ann at Get Physical. You will find friendly, honest and reliable advice that will enable you to achieve your goals as I did mine.
