So we’re going to go ahead and state the obvious that weight training makes you buff but there are different types of buff. You can gain strength but no endurance, endurance but no strength and lastly no endurance, no strength but enough muscles to woo the womenfolk. Here are five weight training exercises that’ll cater to whatever you want whether it’s strength, endurance or the cuts that you desire.
Bodybuilders’ main goal is to train to gain muscles which is their main goal. They tend to lift in the eight- to 12-rep range and only train one muscle group per day, per week. This type of training is the best for making your muscles larger but not necessarily stronger. That's not to say bodybuilders aren't strong, wouldn’t want to get on their wrong side.
This is used to gain maximal strength or what some would consider brute strength. It involves lifting extremely heavy weights for a few reps to gain strength and is not about appearences.
This is about doing a number of exercises in succession with minimal rest in between. This type of training is ideal for burning fat, increasing endurance and making some gains in strength. Circuit training is popular among fighters because it simulates what your body goes through in a wrestling or boxing match.
Isometric training is where you hold a weight at a certain position for a specific time period. It mainly increases stamina and is helpful to athletes such as rock climbers and gymnasts who have to hold their position for a while.
5.High Volume Training
It’s like bodybuilding and places a strong emphasis on increasing muscular endurance one exercise at a time. It makes your muscles larger and helps keeping up a certain amount of resistance for a long time. It’s done by performing one exercise at a time and each week you increase the weight to gain strength.
