Weightlifting can support weight loss by building muscle mass. However, you need to use the right technique to lift weights. Improper technique can be responsible for everything from unintentionally exercising the wrong set of muscles to an injury that might require surgery and possibly years of recovery. There might be tears in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Joints can be damaged with possible serious and chronic implications. Don’t depend only on videos to learn the right techniques. A few initial trips to a certified personal trainer is a must to start on the right exercise techniques with respect to your goals.
