Resistance Based Fitness Exercises

There are several resistance based exercise types that are designed to promote increases in muscle tissue density, strength, and definition. However, it should be noted that each exercise type is designed to target a slightly different result in terms of the muscular development.

For instance, lifting free weights with fairly heavy resistance will promote increases in muscular strength and lean muscle mass while performing exercises that utilize resistance bands tend to promote improvements in muscular tone and definition.

We have accumulated virtually every exercise under each exercise type that you would ever perform within a fitness routine. To this end, our overall intent is to provide you with a comprehensive list of the various exercise types, and the associated exercises under each of the exercise types so that you have all of the information required to choose the type of exercises that will allow you to achieve your personal fitness goals.

This being said, we have structured the layout of the various exercise types so that you can quickly and easily find the exercises that are of interest to you. Once you have identified the exercise type that is of interest to you, you can then view all of the exercises, separated by primary muscle group. In addition, each specific exercise includes a brief description of the exercise, the benefits derived from performing the exercise, the equipment required to perform the exercise, and a step-by-step set of instructions on how to correctly perform the exercise.
