Before starting resistance training

The government guidelines recommend that you undertake strength training at least two days a week which should work all the major muscle groups of your body (legs, hips, back, chest, core, shoulders, and arms).

Always consult your GP / exercise professional prior to starting any new training regimes.

Form while doing the exercise is key. For any help or advice on exercise technique or variations always speak to a qualified professional.

Examples of resistance training

There are many ways you can strengthen your muscles at home or in the gym.

Different types of resistance training include:

* Free weights – classic strength training with dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells

* Medicine balls or sand bags – weighted balls or bags

* Resistance machines –which will have adjustable seats with handles attached either to weights or hydraulics

* Resistance bands – like giant rubber bands – these provide resistance when stretched. They are portable and can be adapted to most workouts. The bands provide continuous resistance throughout a movement

* Suspension equipment –these use gravity and the user's body weight to complete various exercises

* Body weight – can be used for squats, push-ups and chin-ups. Using your own body weight is convenient, especially when travelling or at work
