Introduction

Using strength training as a fitness regime you’re able to use resistance in order to not only make the skeletal muscles within your body stronger, but it also helps to increase their size and anaerobic endurance.

When it comes to strength training there are many different types you can undertake. In this book Strength Training For Beginners I will explain in more detail about not only the benefits of strength training, but also how to get your training started.

However before we look at these areas of I’m going to explain a little bit about where it originates.

Up until the 20th Century, you’ll find the history of strength training is very similar to that of weight training. However with the arrival of certain technologies, materials and knowledge that’s come to light since the 20th Century the methods we now use as part of our strength-training regime have grown somewhat.  

In fact, if you were to look back at what has been written over the century’s regarding strength training, it was something the Ancient Greeks were already doing. Certainly when you look at some of the pictures that appear on ancient Greek cups and plates you’ll see images of men carrying things such as large animals on their back or lifting what seems to be a set of weights.

Of course this isn’t the only evidence to suggest such training was around at this time. One very important Greek at the time, Hippocrates wrote something that helps to explain the principles behind strength training.

He wrote:

That which is used develops, and that which is not used wastes away

In this one very simple quote what he’s referring to is muscular hypertrophy and atrophy.

However it isn’t only Hippocrates that provides us with evidence that the Greeks knew the importance of strength training. The Greek Physician, Galen gives a more detailed account of certain exercises that requires the use of an early form of dumbbell we use today which was then known as a Halteres.

It wasn’t only the Ancient Greeks who understood the importance of strength training to keep fit; the same also goes for the Ancient Persians. Again, like the Greeks, these people used equipment to help them increase muscular strength. However the tool they used was known as Meels and is what the Indian club, which came popular in the 19th Century, is based upon. You will still find equipment like this today but is now known as the club bell.

In the latter part of the 19th Century, the dumbbell was joined by the barbell as an important piece of equipment used in strength training.

The original barbells were just hollow globes that you either filled with sand or lead shot. However these weren’t readily available, so by the end of the 19th Century the hollow globes were replaces with the plate loading barbells we use today.

Even though strength training has been around for hundreds of years, it wasn’t until the 1930’s that it became popular. This was partly due to Charles Atlas who brought strength training to the attention of the public masses. Of course when the introduction of exercise machines began to appear in the 1960’s strength
