Have you ever walked by a resistance machine in the gym and wondered, “How do I use that?”
Jeff Monaco, the national education manager for the McFitness Gym Academy, has the answer to that and another question:
What is resistance training?
When you’re working out, resistance can come in many forms: the water when you swim, your body weight when holding a yoga pose or the weight or incline set on a machine.
In short, resistance training is exercising against any force that makes it challenging for you to move.
“Resistance training is a vital component to any fitness program, whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle,” Monaco says.
When doing this type of training using resistance machines, there are three kinds to know about. Most gyms will have at least one of each kind of machine, which will let you target one of the major muscle groups: chest, back, arms, shoulders, legs and calves.
