Why Strength training?
As one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently, strength training is an important part of any fitness programme. Studies have shown the strength training can also help to increase the endurance of muscles, while also helping to increase bone density, reduce resting blood pressure and improve balance and co-ordination.
Fitbells are a popular part of many workout routines because they provide an easy way to add muscle-toning resistance, and are ideal for toning the upper body or light rehab work.
To get the most out of your workout it is essential that you are using the correct weight. As a guide, the last rep should be a struggle. You should still have control over the weight and your form should still be correct - don't arch your back, strain your neck, or rock your body to generate momentum as this can cause injury - but you should feel like you can't lift another rep.
Perfecting your breathing techniques when you're working out is also crucial, helping your body to deliver oxygen to your muscles more efficiently. For strength training, exhale on the exertion phase (the lifting, curling or pushing) of the exercise and inhale on the easier phase when you return to the starting position. Proper breathing can also help you to build endurance and ensure good form.
Fitbells can be used to target all areas of the body. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
Stand upright with feet together, holding two fitbells at your sides.
Lunge forward with your left leg, curling the fitbells to your shoulders and keeping your elbows close to the body. Your back knee should come close but never touch the ground. The front knee should be directly over the ankle.
Push off with your right foot and bring it forward to starting position, lowering the fitbells to your side. That's one rep.
Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps on each leg, making sure to alternate legs.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding two fitbells in front of your hips, palms facing up.
Bend your left arm 90 degrees so your left arm is parallel to the floor. Curl your right hand toward your shoulder. Then lower it back down to the start position while keeping your left arm in place.
This is one rep. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps on each side.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold two fitbells in front of your hips, palms facing in.
Slowly lift arms up to shoulder height, keeping elbows slightly bent. Hold for one count and lower.
This is one rep. Switch arms and repeat. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps.
