Cardio exercise is anything that raises your heart rate.

Our bodies were made to move. To keep our muscles in shape, we need to regularly move them. By doing this, we’re making the muscles stronger and creating a more efficient and healthy body.

But did you know that your heart is actually just a muscle?

So if you undertake some regular cardio exercise, you’re also improving your heart. And a strong heart means that more oxygen will be delivered to your other muscles. This means you’ll burn more fat – both during exercise and when at rest.

A free-weight is any type of weight training equipment that doesn’t limit the range of motion with which you can use it. This is in contrast to strength machines.

So why is that good?

In using free-weights you will naturally use stabiliser muscles to keep the weight steady. This means that not only are you working on the target muscle, you’re also working other muscles that are used to keep yourself stable.

The benefits of using free-weights in well-rounded workout programme are plentiful and include:

  • You train functional movements.
  • You can use a full range of motion.
  • Works those stabilizing muscles.
  • More time efficient.
  • Lots of choices.

Strength training is a type of exercise that uses resistance to induce muscular contraction. This helps build strength, anaerobic endurance and muscle size.

In the world of fitness, the use of strength machines is commonplace due to the many benefits of using such equipment.

  • Easy to learn and use
  • Isolate muscle groups more efficiently
  • Allow you to train with heavier weights without assistance
  • May be useful for elderly populations and/or rehabilitation
