When properly performed, strength training provides significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being. Benefits include increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness. Similarly, people will also improve joint function, reduce potential for injury, increase bone density, have a temporary increase in metabolism, improve cardiac function, and elevate HDL (good) cholesterol thus regulating diabetes. Strength training commonly uses the technique of progressively increasing the force output of the muscle through incremental increases of weight, elastic tension, or other resistance. It also implements a variety of exercises and multiple types of equipment to target specific muscle groups. Strength training is primarily an anaerobic activity, although some proponents have adapted it to provide the benefits of aerobic exercise through circuit training.
