Let's start with some history.
Hippolyte Trait. Does this name ring a bell? He is the founding father of the weight training we know and love today, which involves lifting weights. He opened the first gym in Paris in 1854. And even better, he invented training equipment with pulleys and weights as well as short exercises that can be done with dumbbells and barbells.
Between 1960 and 1990 in the United States, bodybuilding took off and weight training took a devastating blow. The reason? Doping products and bodies pushed to their absolute limit, bordering on deformity, came into the public eye. Thanks Schwarzenegger...
But just in the last few years, weight training has earned a reputation as being healthy and safe.
While gaining muscle mass remains the main most popular goal among weight lifters, today the sport is accessible to everyone.
Whether you want to correct bad posture, get back into shape (after recovering from an injury for example) or improve your overall health or muscle tone, weight training has plenty of benefits.
