With your muscles usually hands and arms. It also means leg training as well. You would want to use dumbells, barbells and weight machines to train your entire body. Arms, legs, chest, shoulders, back, abs. Each time you weight train, or as the question says "lift weights". You need to decide wha…t are the goals you are trying to accomplish. (MORE)
You need protein to build muscle but you don't need to be the guy benching 500 lbs in the weight room. Take a comfortable weight and work it in as many reps as you can. Work the whole body not just what you think needs to work. The bottom line comes down to your diet. You have to watch what you eat …and eat 3 to 4 meals a day (small portions) instead of two big meals. That is the downfall in today's society. (MORE)
Answer It's possible to go from 110 to 220 in 4 years without roids. Just because some people only gain 30 in 13 years doesn't mean they should speak badly of other people just because they are a different body type. I personally have went from 160 to 245 in almost 6 years without taking anythi…ng stronger than creatine. I have picked up a little higher BF% but that goes with taking in several calories a day in order to bulk and get stronger. I'm not looking to compete in body building, maybe powerlifting though. The point of what I'm saying is that everyones body is different so you should just do your best, push yourself and you'll achieve your potential. (MORE)
Lifting weights will not help you lose weight, they would actually make you heavier because you will be putting on muscle mass. If you want to lose weight (hopefully body fat, not muscle), then you shoudl do cardiovascular exercises such as jogging, biking, swimming, etc.
It depends on the Helicopter. Small ones like the homebuilt mosquito can only lift a few hundred pounds, but large commercial ships like the Russian Mi26 can lift 80,000 pounds (wich is the same as a fully loaded semi-truck)
Most birds of prey can only lift and carry about half their ownweight. For example, eagles weigh around 8 to 12 pounds and cancarry about 3 or 4 pounds.
depending on how fit you are but they usually start at 30min but a 10-15 min streach session is first but not in cluded in the 30min.
The heaviest weight lifted as a dead lift is by Andy Bolton (Great Britain) with 1,003 lb (455 kg) - approaching 1/2 a ton.
The maximum weight that a Bald eagle can lift is about 3 pounds.Most Bald eagles will not lift more than 2 pounds though.
I'm not sure but i was looking for the answer as well and wikipedia said "Clean and Jerk" I don't think it is right though. Can someone back me up on thisw or correct me.
You've probably heard the term "pumping iron." Well, the weight plates themselves really are usually iron. The bars are usually steel, and the best ones are tempered steel. It's possible to increase strength lifting other objects such as stones or plastic weight plates filled with water or concrete.… However, iron weight plates are the most convenient. (MORE)
As a very petite woman 5'-1 124 lbs if I start weight training what is the maximum load I could expect to lift based on this?
When it comes to weight lifting, height and weight have very little influence of how much you can lift. Its going to be down to your muscle strength. If you are a beginner at weight lifting any Fitness Instructor/Trainer will tell you to start on a low weight and to gradually build it up to the leve…l that best suits your needs.. It is not recommended that you try and lift as much as possible as you can easily damage the muscles in your arms, not to mention the strain you will be puttin on your back.. When choosing the amount of weight to use, the main goal is to lift a weight that is heavy enough so that you reach "failure" (or very close to it) at the end of each set. Failure simply means that you should be struggling by the last one or two repetitions, and should not be able to perform more than the alloted number of repetitions for that set. for example: If you are aiming for 8-10 repetitions, the weight should become very difficult to lift once you reach between 8 and 10. You can then do as many sets as you require, I find an ideal number is about 3 sets.. You should get a weight that can only be lifted between 8-10 repetitions, which is considered the ideal range for building muscle. Also you need to make sure you are getting enough protein, prefferably before and after any weight training you do.. There is a good article(link below) on when to take protein during the day and before/after your workout.. http://www.streetdirectory.com/travel_guide/22989/bodybuilding/how_protein_build_muscles__when_to_take_protein.html. I hope you find this information helpful and remember, dont try and lift as much as much as you find pyschically possible. You can end up with permanent damage to your muscles.. Regards. Aaron.

Yes, you can lose weight by cardio walking and lifting weights. In fact, that is the recommended combination for losing weight. It is the way that nearly all fitness models and bodybuilders reduce their percentage of body fat to improve their body composition. Assuming that you are eating well (hea…lthy foods), you should do both mild cardio training and strength training regularly to lose fat. You will not only look and feel better, but you will be healthier as well. The strength training will increase your muscle mass and that will enable you to burn more calories 24 hours a day . Brisk, cardio walking will enable you to burn additional calories during and immediately after your walks. Furthermore, the combination of the two is sustainable (whereas, for example, combining running and weight training is not sustainable for most people). For more information about how to build muscle and burn fat, or how to do cardio walking for weight loss, see the page links, further down this page. listed under Related Questions. (MORE)
If you use strength exercise to increase your muscle tissue, you will be heavier (all things being equal) because a given volume of muscle is heavier than that same volume of fat. However, if you are using strength exercise correctly and eating correctly (healthy foods) as you train, you will sim…ultaneously lose body fat . In other words, your body composition will significantly improve. By that, if you were to lose 10 or 20 pounds of fat while gaining 10 or 20 pounds of muscle, you would look far better, feel better, and be healthier even though your weight did not change You will not gain more weight fat out weight muscle and muscle does not weight as much so keep strength exercise going.

Many benefits can be attained if you do this activity provided you have the waiver or permission from your dietician or physician (MORE)
Weight lifting helps to burn fat stored in your body while simultaneously building muscle. The best way to lose weight though is a combination of weightlifing, exercise, and proper diet. It really depends on where you're starting from, and, how you do it. If you haven't done much exercise at all be…fore starting to try to lose weight, then you won't have much muscles, and with only a little muscle it becomes harder to exercise effectively. A lot of the calorie use happens in the muscles, so with little muscle comes low/slow calorie use. Moderate weight lifting(light weights, plenty of repetitions) will help you lose weight. The exercise burns calories and increases your metabolism, and a bit of added muscle will let you put more effort into your exercises and burn more calories. If you're starting from a couch potato, some muscles strength is good protection against injuries. The fat can actually be replaced with muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat, so your loss of inches will actually be more dramatic than your loss of weight at first. Heavy weight lifting(heavy weights, few repetitions) doesn't help you lose weight. Weight lifting will build muscle mass, which will actually increase your body weight. Weightlifters eat a high protein diet (which helps repair muscle so they can train harder) and a low fat/low carb diet. . (MORE)
There may be an obscure medical term of Latin/Greek origin, but everybody just uses "weight loss." The concept of weight loss is very general, nondescript, and can be caused by a number of unrelated etiologies such as negative metabolic energy balance (e.g., anorexia, cachexia, diet change, hyper…thyroidism, adrenal cortical disease, gastrointestinal malabsorptive diseases such as lymphangiectasia), dehydration, surgical excision of tissue, etc. Weight loss associated with negative energy balance is not a disease in itself and is only a symptom/clinical sign that is representative of a normal or abnormal physiologic response to a stressor put on the body.

it is a way to lose weight, American Fitness Scott Sports experts think that women select the best way sports lose weight are, "Weightlifting." Weightlifting exercises (such as dumbbell-ju) can be subjected to time and space constraints, insist easy to do every day, so every day can burn more calori…es. More importantly, weight lifting exercises will enable the chest, waist and limbs, muscle strength was strong, can be too fat accumulation into solid muscle. That is a good question (one I would not know the answer to for myself). I believe that when you lift weights, you are replacing the fat with muscle. Even though the fat is gone, the muscle will cause you to gain weight. So, yes it burns the fat, but the next time you go to weigh yourself, do not be surprised if you have not lost the amount you originally wanted. Lifting weights is a good way to help your cardio health as well. Walking is a good to try. And from another commentor: If you want to loose weight then you should be doing cardiovascular exercises that get the heart going and get you a little out of breath, ideally using all of your body. Swimming, running and taking part in sports are all excellent ways to get active and loose weight. Weight lifting is a targetted exercise and will either tone your existing muscles (if you lift light weights many times) or build muscles (if you use heavier weights for fewer repetitions - eg 20). If you aren't careful you will just end up fat and strong. - Weight lifting won't really make you loose weight but when you lift weights it replaces fat with muscle, if you want quick results you must do it everyday. You must also need cardio, well this is considered under cardio but I'm talking bout heart needs as in, walking, running, biking, etc. (MORE)

Lifting Weights will actually make your weight go up. Do not be alarmed by this though. Your weight will increase but your fat will decrease.

The maximum load that the crane can lift is 18 metric tons (39,690 pounds), but the crane cannot lift that much weight if the load is positioned at the end of the jib. The closer the load is positioned to the mast (center of rotation), the more weight the crane can lift safely. .

Lift four days a week and group workouts together like this: back and biceps, chest and triceps, legs, and shoulders. Each day, pick about 4 lifts to do for each muscle group. Do 3-4 sets of each exercise you pick and keep the rep range at about 16-20 reps per set. Use dumbells or kettlebells as opp…osed to barbells. Perform cardio after lifting, as this de-emphasizes bulk. Cardio should be at least 30 minutes, but no more than an hour, as you will start to burn your muscle off. Example workout: Monday: chest and triceps Dumbell Bench Press- 4 sets, 16-20 reps Dumbell Flies- 3 sets, 16-20 reps Cable Crossover- 3 sets, 16-20 reps Tricep Rope Pushdown- 4 sets, 20 reps Stair climber: 30 minutes on fat burn program.

it just means lifting weights that is not on a machine like using a curl bar
Im rlly not sure but i think it is because of th lastisity in them
Lifting weight uses more calories and energy, so you can say that fat is burned
If you don't challenge your muscles they won't adapt and grow. You might as well lift up the TV remote as many times and be entertained in the process. Overload your muscles using maximum effort or don't bother going to the gym.
This is kind of complicated. In the earlier years of adolescence, your body is still changing, A LOT. It is possible that extreme athletic activity like lifting heavy weights can interrupt that natural muscle development, even to the point of possibly preventing you from hitting that two-inch growth… spurt you genetically may have coming. Staying fit and active is important, but consult your doctor before starting an intense weight training program to make sure your body is developed enough to take on such consistent, strenuous activity. Also, it is incredibly important that you learn how to lift weights properly. Many people, regardless of their age, go into a weight room and lift with poor form in order to push more weight. Lifting with bad form will prevent you from gaining all the strength and physique goals you want, and may very well result in injury. Get someone to show you how to use all the machines or free weights the right way, and allow yourself to naturally progress in strength. (MORE)
I would say it is harmful since you are basically doing the same thing as smoking, which harms your breathing rate. I would definitly not recommend it for someone serius about lifting and improving their physique and strength levels.
Rest in between sets is so your muscles distinguish multiple sets from one big set. Rest between workouts is so your muscles can recover and become stronger, because when you workout you tear up your muscles. When they grow back they come stronger because your body wants you to be able to do it agai…n, it is kind of an adaptive feature. Same thing happens when you break bones. Even when you hit them and they don't break small mini structures break which come back stronger so you can hit them hard again. Like the people that break concrete with their elbows and stuff.

It really depends on the exercise. if you're using your arms, like pull-ups or push ups, then its your upper body, if you're using your legs, like jumping and running, then its your lower body, and if you're curling in your body or lifting up your legs or twisting, its probably your core.
Contrary to popular belief, lifting weights while you are still growing does not stunt growth. It was believed that breaking a bone could damage the ends of the bones that are still growing, but this is not the case. Strength training has only benefits, if done correctly, whether you are young or ol…d. (MORE)
Weight lifting is not illegal, but the most weight ever lifted was by Louis Cyr. He lifted 4,175lbs onto his back.
It depends, you gain muscle which has mass, but at the same time you are also burning calories, if you eat less calories than your maintenance level of calories you can actually lose weight(fat) while lifting weights. However, if you are looking to gain weight, lifting weights is very useful in gain…ing mass (good muscle mass). This is possible if you eat more calories than your body uses. Muscle weighs more than fat. more muscle weighs more than less.It can happen. As you spend time lifting, you build muscle and this adds weight. (MORE)
Exactly as you said: by lifting weights. Regardless of what type of weight-lifting program you are following, lifting weights will (and should; if not, increase the weight/reps) will increase muscle size and ultimately lead to a heavier weight.
Well, muscle ways more than fat. So if you gain enough muscle, you will gain weight.
Weight training is the science of using weights (or another form of external resistance) in order to train your body to perform a certain task with better ease, efficiency, or technique. This broad category includes simple ankle weights worn while jogging, all the way up to half-ton leg presses. We…ight lifting (i.e. bodybuilding) is a subset of weight training. It specifically identifies the discipline of weight training for the purpose of building larger, stronger, or more well-defined muscles. This is in contrast to weight training, which includes those things, plus weight loss, balance, flexibility, and certain athletic skills. (MORE)
Yes. And this is the fun part with lifting weights. You usually gain low amounts or fat (or even lose some with a proper diet) and the weight that you put on comes from your muscles growing!
Weight lifting contests are usually of two kinds: either Olympic lifting (snatch and clean-and-jerk) or power lifting (squat, deadlift, and bench press). .
yes, it can actually make you weaker if you do to much a day. If you do it not to much but quite a bit so you dont lose muscle you can carry heavier weights over a time period. But if your under 18 and haven't had your full growth spurt it can stunt growth. It can much make your bones weaker but yo…u these things might not happen you may be lucky or just wait until 18. Also it can make you have undeveloped bones! (MORE)
No. Weight lifting will burn your fat but you cannot loose weight but gain weight because you will have muscles. Muscles are heavy...
That would depend on how it's centre of gravity is balanced, the material it's made from (a 3 tonne crane made from polystyrene isn't going to be able to lift much) and it's load bearing structure.
Weight loss is achieved by burning more calories than you take in. Generally, your body will make up for the deficiency by converting adipose tissue (body fat) into energy that it needs. The most common way to do this is by going on a diet, a controlled intake of food and drink for the purpose of ma…naging the calories or nutrients (including fat, protein, and carbohydrates) entering your body. Conversely, you can increase your calorie consumption by increasing your activity by going to the gym, playing sports, or simply getting out and jogging more. Realistically, the most success will be realized with a balanced combination of these approaches. . Weight lifting is a form of exercise that will help you lose fat, and could help you gain muscle mass, muscle definition, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength. There are a wide variety of techniques you can try, depending on your goals. Here are a few examples: . Lose weight: Try adding 5-pound ankle weights when you go jogging or cycling. . Build strength: Lift fairly heavy amounts of weight to push your muscles close to their limit, being careful not to injure yourself. . Muscle definition: Lift medium weights (heavy enough that it requires effort, but not so much that you strain to do a couple of reps) for a high number of reps, such as 20 or 30 per set (this should tire you out). . Flexibility: When doing one of the other techniques, use the weight, resistance, or gravity to move your body through the full range of motion, stretching a little bit at each end of the movement. . Muscle mass: Lift very heavy weights (heavier than strength workouts) to do just a couple of reps. You want to shred your muscle so that it has to build itself larger each time, but so much that it puts you out of commission. You should consult a physician before starting any diet or exercise program, especially if you are unsure if you are healthy enough to do certain exercises or are unsure of how to manage a diet plan. Your physician may recommend a dietitian or personal trainer to help you, especially when getting started. Steroids are not the answer. Trust us on this one.. (MORE)
your making a 6 year old child lift? They cant even develope muscles until they hit puberty
What is the maximum weight a 6 year old child should lift as in pick up like a gallon of milk not weights since they always want to help?
It depends on the strength of their muscles. I would advise not to let them carry more than 4 litres of milk. You can always tell when they can't carry somthing as they will either complain or have a pained look on their face. Thank you!
Leonid Taranenko of the USSR lifted 266.0Kg in the Clean & Jerk in 1988. This remains the heaviest ever Clean and Jerk recorded in competition.
