Weight training is a type of strength training designed to increase muscle size and power. If you are looking to bulk up or take part in certain sports, weight training can be a helpful addition to your workout regime. Sporting activities such as rugby, athletics, mixed martial arts, basketball and rowing, benefit from strengthening muscles.
