It is hard not to crave for the toned figures of athletes, models or sportspersons. Their taut muscles show strength and fitness. It is hard not to want the same fitness for your body. You may achieve this fitness along with a toned musculature with a variety of strength training equipment. The strength training exercises are also known as the resistance exercises. These physical activities compel your body to overcome a measured amount of resistance to improve your strength and to shape your muscles.

Isometric exercises use non-movable objects whereas isotonic exercises use various animated objects.
To fall in love with your fit and toned physique, you may use different types of strength training equipment. The dumbbells are excellent for beginners who want to build their strength using free weights. These handheld weight-training gears are shorter versions of barbells and may weigh up to 100 pounds. You may even find some dumbbells that are exclusively designed to satisfy the needs of either men or women. The body-bar is another excellent gear for beginners participating in weight training exercises. These iron bars usually stay covered with rubber sheets or foam.
