A common type of strength training for developing the strength and muscle mass, weightlifting uses a variety of specialized equipment (weighted bars, dumbbells, kettlebells or weight stacks) to target specific muscle groups.

Done properly, workouts improve muscle size, mass, strength and power, while also helping to prevent injury. Find advice about the best ways to increase strength from today's top coaches and elite athletes.
