Weight Training Exercise


Let Hennie help you perfect your weight training exercise programme


Weight training is one of the most common types of strength training and it is used by people wanting to lose weight, gain weight or to build muscle mass. Weight training exercise increases the strength and size of the body’s skeletal muscles.

Weight training exercise works by using the force of gravity to oppose the force generated by the body’s muscle. The most common tools used for weight training are bars, dumbbells or weight stacks as well as specialised equipment to focus on specific muscle groups and types of movement.  

The force generated by the muscles are either concentric, which is when the muscle shortens to generate force and eccentric which is when the muscle elongates while under pressure.


Weight training and bodybuilding

Weight training exercise is similar to bodybuilding, but the objectives of the two differ. A bodybuilder use weight training to develop their muscle for size, shape and symmetry – regardless of strength increase – for competing in bodybuilding contents. A weight trainer will do weight training exercise to improve strength and anaerobic endurance.

Training Schedule

Throughout my bodybuilding career I would say a big challenge for me was to prove that conditioning rules and not size.

I train 5 to 6 days per week. I prefer to train 1 muscle group per day and I totally exhaust that group with 4 - 5 exercises.
