Hi, my name is Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin, health and wellness expert with NinaCheriePHD.com and I'm here at the H-F Racket and Fitness Club in Homewood, Illinois. In this clip I'm going to show you how to perform resistance training exercises using low weight and high repetitions. Resistance training using low weight and high repetitions is a great way to improve your overall muscular endurance. In order to train this way you should perform 1 or multiple sets of 12 to 20 repetitions of each exercise. When choosing your resistance go for a weight that fatigues your muscles within your desired number of repetitions. For example, if you wish to perform 20 repetitions of an exercise your muscles should start to fatigue anywhere between 18 and 20 repetitions. In other words, 18 should feel as you cannot make it to 20 but still light enough for you to get there. Use this as a guideline when choosing any resistance or any type of exercise. There are many types of resistance that you can use to train with low weight and a high number repetitions including dumbbells, machines, rubber tubing, and even your own body weight. Using any of these types of resistance you can perform exercises for your chest, back, shoulders, triceps, biceps, legs as well as your core, and that's how to perform resistance training exercises using low weight and a high number of repetitions. This is Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin, thank you for watching.
