Weight Lifting Workouts | STACK

Weightlifting

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. Athletes generally target the muscles of the lower body, upper body and core that are used in competition. 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.
