I do not want to be compared to other authors writing on this topic, and therefore I will not tell the story of this sport. I just think it’s odd – nikakoi use it you do not bring. Let me just say that athleticism – one of the oldest methods of physical development, kotoryi constantly evolving and continues to cultivate sei day.
The benefits of classes are enormous: in addition to becoming slimmer and stronger, you will also significantly improve your heart and lungs, strengthen the nervous system, increase immunity and vitality . These are not empty words! I checked it on myself!
Even if you are already burning with the desire to grab the dumbbells, do not rush – starting with a jerk, you only hurt yourself. You need to start gradually.
But first, let’s draw a line between athleticism and heavy athletic and find out what we want to do. Athletism (bodybuilding) aims to build muscle mass, the acquisition of bold muscles. Weightlifting makes the main bet on the development of strength.
No, no, I do not mean to say that athleticism will not make you stronger, and weightlifting will not help to increase muscle volume. Just the priorities for these similar sports are different. From this, differences in training methods follow.
Weightlifters work with limit or near-limit weights, lifting a certain weight 1-2, sometimes 3 times. This allows the muscles to be able to withstand heavy loads, but for a short period. But not only. A general decrease in endurance during prolonged exertion was noticed: whether it was running or any other similar occupation. Therefore, heavy athletic people involved in (or wanting to take part) in various competitions in biathlon, eventing and the like
An interesting fact: athletes who make more efforts to develop any one or the same muscle group (for example, leg muscles) still show some of the best results, say, with the bench press (chest muscles).
Athleticism, by contrast, develops endurance and resistance to prolonged stress. Hence the complexes of exercises: 10-12 (sometimes 15 or more) exercises (push-ups, pull-ups, etc.) for 10-15 approaches.
