WeightLifting Breda

Weightlifting – this is the style of lifting you see at the Olympics and involves doing lifts known as the snatch and the clean and jerk.
Powerlifting is more about overall strength. Competitions focus on three main lifts: the squat, deadlift and bench press.

About weightLifting and powerlifting

Because of the tight competition rules in weightlifting competitions, you’ll see a much more defined technique during these sorts of competitions with very specific movements. The bars and weight plates are also very specific. Bumper plates are more commonly used to ensure the bar starts off at the same height each time regardless of the weight load, and also to allow competitors to drop the weight following the lift.
Powerlifting – powerlifting is more about overall strength. Competitions focus on three main lifts: the squat, deadlift and bench press. And because powerlifting is all about lifting the most weight, it’s judged on getting in a complete lift so it’s less technically demanding than weightlifting.
Powerlifters tend to train whole muscle groups rather than target individual muscles. So rather than “leg day” it’s more likely to be “lower body day”.
And when it comes to your training regime, adopting techniques and training styles from each type, and weaving them into your routine, can really help you improve.

Keep your ticker

Keep your ticker in top form by pumping iron, says a study conducted by researchers at the College of Health Sciences’ Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science at Appalachian State University. The study looked at what happens to arteries and blood flow after 45 minutes of moderate-intensity strength training and found that there was up to a 20 percent decrease in blood pressure — a benefit equal to or surpassing that of taking anti-hypertensive drugs.

Use it or loose it

Lean muscle mass naturally diminishes with age.

Your body fat percentage will increase over time if you don’t do anything to replace the lean muscle you lose over time. Strength training can help you preserve and enhance your muscle mass at any age.

Grow

As you incorporate strength training exercises into your fitness routine, you may notice improvement in your strength over time. As your muscle mass increases, you’ll likely be able to lift weight more easily and for longer periods of time. If you keep it up, you can continue to increase your strength, even if you’re not in shape when you begin.
