Our expert mobile trainers share why a lighter load can equal greater gains!
- Effort, not load, increases muscle growth
New studies show that lifting lighter weights until reaching muscular failure can increase muscle size and strength as much as lifting heavy weights can.
- Lighter weights allow for greater range of motion
Lifting too heavy takes the weight through a shorter range of motion, resulting in poorer performance.
- The risk of injury decreases
“Light weights means less chance of injury, which equals greater performance,” says Chad, BodyBack’s head personal trainer.
