Strength training not only improves your muscular strength and endurance, it also increases your range of motion, improves your posture and helps prevent injuries. Hand weights, thera-bands, and fitness balls are some of the tools you can use to tighten and tone your muscles.
Any kind of strength training should be performed no more than 2 to 3 times per week. You must have a 24 to 48 hours break between training sessions, as this allows the muscles time to strengthen, and helps avoid injuries.
You can increase the size of the weights, the resistance of the thera-band, and the difficulty of the exercises, as your muscles become stronger and you become familiar with the equipment. The number of sets and repetitions of each exercise should be changed as your body adapts to the new stress. Progressive increases in weight or resistance stimulate muscle growth.
