Lifting benefits so many things in a student’s life. It creates better body image, makes students healthier, and gets them “huge”.

It improves athletic endurance and makes students look really good. With lifting, students get faster, stronger, and better in sports. Muscles get bigger, allowing students to outperform opponents and help their teams.

Another advantage is creating positive self image. When you think you look good, you feel good, when you feel good everything around you seems good.

Lifting weights doesn’t always mean that students can get big. Nutrition is a major component in lifting weights. If students want to be big then eating right and having proper recovery is the key to lifting. You can lift a thousands times but won’t gain anything because you are eating the wrong foods.

With that said eating right is a key ingredient in lifting, it also helps you create a healthy diet for yourself. Also lifting eliminates stress which can cause many things to go downhill. Taking stress out in lifting can improve your self confidence and increase your workload during your workout. With lifting for sports, games and practices will become easier and fun since you’ll be faster and stronger than teammates or opponents.

Working out different muscle groups is another important tool to get better in the gym. Working out only one muscle group will cause fatigue and may cause serious injury.

Usually working out two to three days a week is the best way to improve muscle strength but having different workout plans for different days is the best way to maximize your workout. Being able to workout a couple days a week will pay off in a couple of months but don’t stop grinding to get that great body image. These workouts may suck at first, and students may want to quit, but keeping up with the workouts and continuing through it will pay off in the future.
