What's the Best Way to Strength Train?

What's Your Favorite Way to Strength Train?

Any comprehensive workout routine includes a few days of strength training, for good reasons. Having more muscles helps you burn more calories, not to mention the fact that a good set of muscles help your body look its defined best. When it comes to choosing how you tend to your muscles, the possibilities are endless.

For me, having a trainer was a good way to learn how to use machines and other equipment at the gym. When I'm not using those on the gym floor, I take a class at my gym that mixes cardio and strength training, and I occasionally take yoga on the weekends to build muscle while increasing my flexibility.

What about you? Whether you pump iron or are a Pilates master, what's your favorite way to strength train?

I love Body Pump!!!! Plus I do hot power yoga which makes me more sore than the pump classes.

BodyPump classes!! I find cardio much more enjoyable than strength training, so the group environment and upbeat music of BodyPump really make weight lifting feel more fun.

Free weights with the boys! Also, do not underestimate the power of your own body weight. Push ups just never get easy for me..
