All sports require agility and quick response to certain factors. The difference between .2 and .3 of a second in reaction speed is what may decide the champion. A football player will need to quickly estimate his opponent’s next move and dribble accordingly; a baseball player will anticipate the ball’s course and move his or her posture accordingly; a martial arts fighter will defend and counter attack instantly after being hit. Independently of the sport, concentration, focus and quick momentum are a must for anyone that wants to win, or rise to the first place.
It’s a new era for female participation in sports and strength training, with the number of female athletes having increased tremendously over the past couple of decades. Female athletes and their coaches seem very enthusiastic about the opportunity to perform quality training, as historically female athletes hadn’t been that engaged in structured strength and conditioning program. Nowadays, more and more women are excited about following a strength training program, considering it’s designed specifically for them.
Strength training, involves the use of weights, kettlebells or other forms that produce resistance and challenge an athlete’s body to work harder. That extra resistance and challenge that the body receives will definitely increase its metabolic rate. Even though, endurance exercise, such as running, does the same, the difference is in how long and how much these activities boost your metabolism. In other words, this will have an impact on your overall ability to lose body fat and at the same time decrease your weight.
