It’s been engrained in us to believe that the more we exercise, the more weight we will lose. New research suggests that may not be the case after all. If you are exercising regularly and not losing weight, it may not be because you aren’t exercising enough, but rather because you aren’t doing the right kind of exercise.
Resistance training is any kind of training that aims to increase muscle strength by working against a weight or force. There are different types of resistance training, including the use of free weights, weight machines, weighted medicine balls, kettlebells, resistance bands or body weight.
