When we lift weights, there are essentially two main objectives that we have in mind. The first one is to improve our physiques by building muscle and losing fat, whilst the second objective is to improve our strength. When we lift weights we do both, but there are ways of actually helping to ensure that we get the best of both worlds rather than a little bit of one, and a lot of the other. For example, bodybuilders train in order to build muscle, as that is their primary objective.
