3 Reasons Why You Should Be Lifting Lighter Weights

, 3 Reasons Why You Should Be Lifting Lighter Weights

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.
