14 Ways to Weightlift

It's more than picking things up and putting them down. Here's how to beat workout boredom.

Weightlifting isn't as cut and dry as just picking things up and putting them down, or lifting as heavy as possible. Weightlifting is a science, and it involves smart programming to get optimal results, safely. Although a bench press is a bench press, and a squat is a squat, there are plenty of variations and styles of lifting to improve efficiency and results. We've asked Jason Martuscello, C.S.C.S., C.I.S.S.N., and contributor to HUMANFITPROJECT for some of his recommended techniques for beginners that push the limits, break plateaus, and stimulate new muscle growth.
