Light Weights, High Reps

The current guidelines for minimum physical activity are at least 2 strength training sessions per week. Strength training involves some type of resistance or weight-bearing movements, whether using body-weight alone (calisthenics) or using home or gym equipment such as machines, bands, or free weights. Resistance training promotes bone mineral mass, muscle tone, and a host of other healthful benefits. However, it is not necessary to “lift” Olympic grade poundage to reap the benefits, as shown in this report.
