“Three weeks now, I’ve been practicing resistance training. I’m avoiding anything to do with sports”

"Resistance training” doesn’t mean resisting going to the exercise, but that’s the popular joke. “Three weeks now I’ve been practising resistance training. I’m avoiding anything to do with sports” was posted on Sickipedia on August 19, 2021.

“I do resistance training every day. It’s called refusing to go to the gym” is a similar joke.

Resistance exercise doesn’t mean resistance to exercise! Instead, it’s a type of exercise that has gained popularity over the last decade or so as researchers discover the many benefits it has to offer.

What Is Resistance Training?
Resistance training is any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increases in strength, tone, mass, and/or endurance. The external resistance can be dumbbells, rubber exercise tubing, your own body weight, bricks, bottles of water, or any other object that causes the muscles to contract.
