User: if you had a 30-pound barbell at home and you wanted to compare your muscular endurance to your younger brother's, which method would be best to use?

Weegy: Resistance training should be an integral part of a fitness program and of a sufficient intensity to enhance strength, muscular endurance and maintain fat-free mass, recommends the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). [ [ Muscular strength and endurance training can benefit a number of groups including healthy adults, older adults, children, adolescents and diseased populations. This type of training not only results in improved muscular strength and endurance but also contributes to several other benefits. Improved Body Composition Regular strength training will result in improved body composition. As you train, your levels of lean body mass will increase, which in turn will reduce your body fat percentage. Additional muscle will not only improve the look of your body now, but it will continue to assist you in the battle of the bulge. Muscle is a metabolically active tissue, which means it constantly uses calories even at rest. Strength training can provide up to a 15 percent increase in metabolic rate, which is enormously helpful for weight loss and long-term weight control, according to the Centers for Disease Control. advertisement Improved Bone Density Training to improve your muscular fitness simultaneously improves your bone health. When you contract your muscle to move a weight, the muscle exerts a force on the bone, which causes the bone to reinforce its structure to withstand the force. By stressing your bones, strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis, per the Mayo Clinic. Injury Prevention Training to improve your muscular strength and endurance will also improve your ability to resist injury. Strength training makes muscles, tendons and ligaments stronger and less susceptible to injury, says Thomas D. Fahey in his book "Basic Weight Training for Men and Women." This is an obvious benefit in sports and athletic events, but it also will protect you when performing every day activities, such as lugging a heavy bag of groceries. ] ]
