Definition and types of training Pyramid training was born as a strength development technique used in the discipline of weight lifting ; can be considered a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), or a training method that alternates high efforts (with overloads) to complete or partial recoveries. Based on the structure of the specific table, pyramidal training may be more or less effective on the development of strength and hypertrophy depending on whether the component of lactate muscular acidosis prevails or not
Bodybuilding or Body Building (from English: physical culture) is a motor activity that exploits: training with overloads (traditionally free-body exercises and / or with dumbbells, barbells and isokinetic machines) and a particular diet (not always in line with the requirements for a correct and healthy diet) in order to achieve an "ideal" (subjective) aesthetic result, characterized on average by: low percentage of fat mass (Low% Body Fat Mass) high percentage of lean mass (High% Body Fat Free Mass)

Both of these correlations unfortunately die hard myths. With this article we will focus on the positive correlation between aerobic and anaerobic activity
Edited by: Francesco Currò After about three months of progressively heavier training, Tom Platz - in his book " Professional BodyBuilding " - recommends using a split workout in the "upper part" and "lower part" for a total of four weekly training sessions. This training routine , which is the one I will report in a few lines, is recommended by the champion for anyone (in good health), who has one to four years of constant training behind him.
By Dr. Dario Mirra Introduction In gyms it is very common to see the external muscles of the thighs "multi" or abductor machine "train", because the "instructors" are convinced that if the adductor muscles are located on the inside of the thigh, then the abductors must necessarily be on the thigh
By Dr. Filippo Casini Dear readers, with this article I would like to try to help all those people who have been training for several years, let's say at least 3 or 4, and, for one reason or another, are not completely satisfied with the results obtained or maybe, simply, they no longer get them as easily as when they were at the beginning of their weight training
