Aerobic exercise involves continuous and rhythmic physical motion, such as walking and bicycling. It improves your stamina by training your body to become more efficient and use less energy for the same amount of work. As your conditioning level improves, your heart rate and breathing rate return to resting levels much sooner from strenuous activity.</span><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;"><o:p></o:p></span></p> <h3 style="margin: 12pt 0in 6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size: 14.5pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Strengthens and Tones<o:p></o:p></span></h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 9.5pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;">Exercising with weights and other forms of resistance training develops your muscles, bones and ligaments for increased strength and endurance.

They keep your body limber so that you can bend, reach and twist. Improving your flexibility through exercise reduces the chance of injury and improves balance and coordination. If you have stiff, tense areas, such as the upper back or neck, performing specific stretches can help "loosen" those muscles, helping you feel more relaxed.</span><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;"><o:p></o:p></span></p> <h3 style="margin: 12pt 0in 6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size: 14.5pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Controls Weight<o:p></o:p></span></h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 9.5pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;">Exercise is also a key to weight control because it burns calories.

Regular gym & fitness gear!25 June 2016

<p style="line-height: 15.6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size:9.5pt; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#222222">Using right weight lifting gloves for improved grip strength can be both beneficial and detrimental to your training. On one hand, they make it easier to grip the bar when your hands get sweaty. This will allow you to continue to train your muscles, without worrying about whether or not your hands will slip.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p style="line-height: 15.6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size:9.5pt; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#222222">On the other hand, weight lifting gloves can provide a false sense of grip strength. When performing functional tasks such as carrying boxes, doing yard work, etc., you may realize that without the lifting gloves, your grip is actually not as strong as you believed it to be.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p style="line-height: 15.6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size:9.5pt; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#222222">Another point worth mentioning is that wearing weight lifting gloves will increase the diameter of the bar, therefore technically making it more difficult to grip. Whether or not this increases or decreases your grip strength is dependent on personal perception.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p style="line-height: 15.6pt; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"><span style="font-size:9.5pt; font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#222222">The gloves will make it easier to grip when the bar becomes sweaty, but more difficult to grip overall because of the increased thickness of the bar. If you do not want to wear gloves but are having trouble with the barbell slipping out of your hands, try using chalk or an eco ball to decrease the likelihood of slippage.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
