Lighter Weights Build Muscle

You don’t have to lift mega pounds to get toned muscles.  When 15 volunteers did leg extension till they were exhausted, those who worked with lighter weights actually stimulated their muscles 25 percent more than the heavy lifters.

Your build muscle by pushing to the point of fatigue, not by straining with heavier weights, the researchers believe.  Their advice: Choose a weight that you can lift for about a minute before you become too tired to continue.

If it takes you much longer then that to reach fatigue, the weight is probably too light and you should go up a bit.

You don’t need a fancy gym membership or a lot of expensive equipment. Just get yourself a pair of dumbbells and you can benefit from weights to lose pounds and get fit.
