    I've used resistance training to gain the muscle that I have on me now. I think's a great and effective way to gain mass and increase muscle endurance, but not everyone agrees. I guess I'm used to using what's affordable and available to train. So what's your view of resistance training? Is it worth the time or not?

    Hello Friends......

    The basic definition of resistance training is that it’s any kind of training that has your muscles working against, of course, something that gives them resistance. In recent years, this has basically broken down into two different types of training. The first is the more traditional meaning: resistance that uses as weight, like a barbell. But when you see many of today’s popular workouts talking about “resistance training,” they’re usually talking about the second kind. This kind, which uses either elastic or hydraulic (ie you’re either using an elastic band or a workout machine), has become the standard in resistance training because it doesn’t create bulky muscles the way that some types of weight training do.

    Thanks

    Resistance is futile. ;-)

    I dig resistance training. I get all pumped up and even straight guys reach out and give my biceps a squeeze.

    Resistance training can be as simple as exercising in the water, or lifting your own weight, but, to really get some results, you need weights, time, food, recovery, and patience.

    I'm a believer in free weights. And they are economical.
