The 5 Benefits of Strength Training for everyone!

Strength training is great for everyone! Strength training is based on the principle that muscles need to work to overcome resistance. When you do it repeatedly, your muscles will work hard and grow. After a period of time, it becomes stronger. Putting it in a simple term, it is the activities we do every day. From walking, carrying our books, lifting boxes from the ground, pulling out our drawer and pushing it back in and from standing up and sitting down from a chair. The only thing we need to do is more repetition and add loads while doing the activity.

10 Commandments of Powerlifting by #MarvinInspire

I started Powerlifting at the age of 21 and I was a late bloomer in the fitness arena. That period of time, I do not have a proper coach to guide this journey. A close friend of my, David Liaw was the person who introduces me to powerlifting. My source of learning was from Coach David, Uncle Google, and Sir. Youtube. I literally do not know anything about Powerlifting that I even Squat on the Smith Machine most of the time. It was indeed a bad option to stick to Smith Machine almost every workout. I had the assumption that it was just the same as free weight squat. I learn from my mistake and move forward.
