Exercises for Weight Control

Weight Training (weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing)

Weight training builds strong muscles and bones. You can weight train at home or at a fitness center.

You donít need benches or bars to begin weight training at home. You can use a pair of hand weights or even two soup cans.

Make sure you know the correct posture and that your movements are slow and controlled.

Before you buy a home gym, check its weight rating (the number of pounds it can support) to make sure it is safe for your size. If you want to join a fitness center where you can use weights, shop around for one where you feel at ease.

Weight training rule of thumb.

If you canít do an exercise 8 times in a row, your weights are too heavy. If it is easy to do it 12 times in a row, your weights are too light.
