Whether you are a basketball player, tennis player or even a chess player; you can benefit from strength training. The idea of lifting weight is to develop large strong muscles, which improve coordination; with better coordination you can be faster and more flexible as well as stronger. This is not going to be a problem for the coordination that you need for such fine muscle movements as playing the piano or smashing the tennis ball.
The muscle tissue can be classified into two groups of fiber. The red, slow-twitch fibers control your endurance and the white, fast-twitch fibers are for strength and speed. When you strengthen a muscle, you train the same fibers over and over until you build speed, so strength training helps you to move faster. The brain tells the 500 muscles in the body how they should work together and that process is called coordination. When you strengthen the muscle, it will mean that you stop the brain from controlling muscles. With strong muscles, you only use fewer fibers for the same task, which makes it for the brain to do its job.
Full length, range-of-motion strength training can also enhance your flexibility. Stretching is a great way to become mobile. Now, if you go to a gym and lift weight, you might notice you’re your muscles get contract. The muscle tissue stretch to help the body lift the weight. Another reason for strength training is that it can help you perform better in your daily activities, like household chores or even the simplest things you do at home like opening stuck doors, jars and faucets.
