Strength training routines

Exercising requires a good plan, which just might be the most important thing to prepare before even entering a gym or starting a home workout. So, what would be some basic strength training routines? Are there any differences?

Actually, many people have a different opinion on what strength actually is. This is because they do not have enough valid information, which is a wrong approach. Each type of the workout develops the strength in its own way. For example, running and weight lifting will both increase the strength, but in a slightly different way.

Muscle mass building

Muscle mass building, resistance training, weight lifting, these are all phrases used to describe workout type that has increased muscle strength as a result. Lean muscles and bulked up muscles are the result of strength training; the only difference between those two is in the weight used. Bulked up effect will require as much additional weight as the organism can lift (usually 6 to 12 reps in a set). Lean muscles can usually be made with the help of the light dumbbells or body's weight only. 


If we are talking about the muscle mass building, then some regular training schedule must include at least 5 training days with one day for resting and one day for cardio workout. Why is cardio implemented in muscle mass building? Because it will actually rest the muscles, making them work in a different way, and cardio is always great for fat tissue elimination. Each day should be focusing at least two muscle groups - for example, a day for performing all sorts of bench presses with using both barbell and dumbbells. This can be even splashed with push-ups for additional effect.

For muscle mass building, some experts claim that during a training session, there should not be any pause between the sets and different exercises. This is because keeping the muscles in a constant tension should be more effective when it comes to increasing the muscle mass. Each strength training routine must be combined with a healthy, controlled eating. It would be pointless to waste all that effort in a gym with some junk food or with alcohol. This is actually why creating a perfect body is difficult, there are not only weights to think of, but there are bad habits that should be eliminated and not only for a while but for the entire life. That is the only way to keep the organism healthy.
