Everything you need to know about weight training

Everything you need to know about weight training

Team Fiit

22nd April 2019

We know that weight training helps you tone up and build muscle. It’s also widely recognised as one of the most efficient training methods for burning fat.

But lifting does so much more for your body and mind than it does for your appearance.

From reversing the ageing process and reducing the risk of heart disease to increasing resting metabolic rate (RMR) and bone density, lifting has a greater effect on your athletic performance than any other dynamic exercise — including running, walking or cycling.   

According to research by the University of Limerick, weight training also produces a “significant reduction in depressive symptoms.” The more you lift. The more powerful you feel.

Ladies and gents, it’s time to level up

Bodyweight classes are a great starting point for anyone new to exercise. We would always recommend you start with these to build strength, endurance and aerobic capacity, without the risk of injury.

But if you’re already a seasoned gym-goer, it’s time to shake things up.

Equipment classes are now available on Fiit. That means dumbbells and kettlebells, in both the Cardio and Strength studios.

Trust us when we say, they’re no joke. With longer work periods and shorter rests, tougher finishers and the additional load, you’ll be burning (and sweating) more than ever before.

Word to the wise, never skip the warm up or cool down. Not only will you increase the risk of injury but you’ll also miss out on our trainer’s tips. The ones that help you optimise the way you train and ensure your form stays on point from start to finish.

Form over intensity. Form over everything.

Most classes are aimed at ‘all levels’ so it’s down to you to choose how hard you work. The intensity will be determined by your choice of weight and by how hard you push yourself.

We suggest you start low and build up. Light weight classes may sound easy but don’t be fooled — a couple of kilos get heavy very quickly. We’ve also thrown new moves into the mix so master those before you lift big. Think kettlebell swings, kossack squats, dumbbell power cleans, thrusters and renegade rows.

“Strong isn’t a look. It’s a feeling. You want to be strong. So you can run for the bus. Wake up full of energy. Play with your kids. Don’t be afraid to be strong.” Charlotte Holmes

If you’ve never lifted before, pop into your local gym and test some out. We’ve partnered up with Origin Fitness so once you know how heavy you’re willing to go, check out our equipment packages and choose the one that’s right for you. Get 30% off with discount code 30FIITDISC.
