Weightlifting is a form of exercise that allows you to selectively develop muscular strength, size, tone and endurance by exerting forces against weight based loads. Lifting weights is the best way to build muscle because of the variety of exercises available and the ability to add load to chosen muscle groups. The effect of weightlifting is dependent on the load, repetitions, and total sets chosen. An example is if you use high reps and low weight it is better for endurance, where if you use low reps and high weight it is better for strength.

Knowledge of basic weightlifting terminology is crucial to your success. A repetition (often called a "rep") is a single completion through the full range of motion of a particular exercise. At the end of one repetition the weight that you are lifting should be at the same location that it was at when you started the repetition. A set is a grouping of a certain number of repetitions performed in a row without rest. Rest means a break or temporary stop in action.

This article has been a brief introduction in to the world of building muscle. There are many things to consider when choosing a weightlifting routine that is right for you. One must consider what their goals are before making a decision. Don’t be afraid to do some research before making your choice.
