Strength and conditioning training has gained popularity in recent years as Americans look to fight the growing problem of obesity. Weight training is deemed by many in the medical field as one the best ways, combined with a healthy diet, to lose body fat and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Weight training has also gained relevance in the sports field as trainers in most professional and amateur sports emphasize weight training to build muscle and speed while improving performance out on the field. With all the benefits of weight training there are also negatives. Weight training, if done incorrectly, can lead to serious injury such as lower back and joint problems.
When engaging in core exercises like squats, dead lifts, and power cleans, your working a variety of muscles that if done correctly can lead to muscle growth. If done with poor posture and form the exercises can be counter productive leaving you with a sore back rather than bigger muscles. Proper form combined with the right equipment can lead to great results.
The MitiGator Cushioning System developed by Seas Group can be applied to weight lifting equipment such as the handles of barbells and dumbbells. The MitiGator provides improved grip allowing the weight lifter to lift more weight thus stimulating the muscle in the process.
