Weight training


Weight training makes you better at handling weight. In performance and life it is not sheer weight lifting strength but a succession of small skills, angles, varied positions, balance, and leverages that are the real determinants of strength, but that type of strength is not measurable, weightlifting strength is measurable. Resistance training through a spectrum teaches how to use and apply strength in motion, to use momentum, to use position. It provides the background for the solution of the ongoing problem of human movement.
