Singles who wish to meet
other singles as well as ac-
complish exercise goals can
do both by participating in
aerobic circuit weight train-
ing.
Working in pairs, this form
of exercise involves warming
up together areobically for 20
minutes, lifting weights at
various stations with one
minute of running between
each station. One partner
exercises in place while
watching the other partner
who is performing the
weight-lifting movements.
After the weight-lifting part-
ner finishes his/her regimen,
the partners switch and the
process begins again.
The procedure continues at
each station until all stations
are completed. There
everyone joins in for an
aerobic cooldown. There are
many benefits to this type of
exercise. They are:
Feeling of sharing and not
competing; keeping up
aerobic capacity while em-
phasis is placed on cardiovas-
cular efficiency; working with
intervals of short bursts of
energy then with active rest;
while walking, running, rope
jumping between set stations
of weights, one can socialize;
one can practice at home
with self-made bean bags,
sand bags or frozen juice cans
filled with nails and bolts.
Tennis star Billie Jean
King, after a number of knee
operations, has often said
that if she were to start her
career again, the one thing
she would do differently
would be to lift weights at
the beginning and continue
on a weight training program
throughout her life.
When using weights there
are some important rules to
remember. First, it is impor-
tant to use mirrors when
exercising with weights.
Watch to make sure that the
arm is brought into the body,
with the forearm parallel to
. the floor (elbow is bent). It is
also necessary to have the
same amount of 'energy on
each side of the spine in
order to prevent injury.
The use of weights in exer-
cise is based on resistance.
Don't fling weights. The ob-
ject is to have perfect control.
Breathe into lifting and
exhale as the weight is low-
ered away from the body.

Resistance training is
based on a methodical strain-
ing of the body's major mus-
cle groups. The most common
form of resistance training is
weight lifting, an activity in
which an isolated muscle
group raises and lowers a
weight until that muscle
group is too fatigued to lift
the weight one more time,
thus stimulating the de-
velopment of that muscle
group.
What is the purpose of
stimulating muscle growth?
First, skeletal muscles, like
the rest of the body, athrophy
when not used. When muscle
tissue is stimulated, it gains
in endurance and allows you
to do more with less fatigue.
Strengthening the skeletal
muscles also strengthens the
bones themselves, as well as
the ligaments, the tendons,
the joints and connective tis-
sue. Serious or even minor in-
juries from dance or sports,
unexpected falls or any acci-
dents, are far less prevalent
in individuals who perform
resistance exercises.
Resistance exercise will
also help to lower body-fat
percentage. Aerobic work
does this by burning calories;
resistance work does it in an-
other way. Muscular growth
is a complex phenomenon. In
simplified terms, this is what
happens: An intense muscle
contraction (against resis-
tance) causes the formation of
a chemical called creatine.
Creatine is the substance
that induces RNA (ribonuc-
leic acid) to stimulate muscle
growth. Myosin, a protein, is
formed enabling the muscles
to undergo additional con-
tractions. Additional contrac-
tions produce creatine, which
induces more growth, and so
on. Remember that it is not
technically the amount of fat
that is important, but rather
the percent of fat. In this
case, the amount of fat re-
mains constant with proper
food intake and aerobic work,
while the amount of muscle
increases with stimulation
from resistance work. When
this happens, the body-fat
percentage becomes lower.
An added resistance that
weights supply to exercises
causes muscles to work har-
der than if one were simply
pushing and pulling or bend-
ing or lifting without
weights. Muscles grow be-
cause they are forced to put
forth more energy. As there
is more demand from mus-
cles, they adapt to the stress
by ,becoming -stronger. In
