re·sis·tance train·ing

(rĕ-zis'tăns trān'ing)
Using weights (e.g., dumbbell, barbell, machine), technique chronically loads a muscle group in an attempt to increase strength over time (some techniques include progressive resistance, isometric, and isokinetic weight training).

strength training

training achieved by working dynamically against high loads or statically against fixed resistances. In both cases the forces involved must be such that relatively few repetitions are possible without a substantial rest period. A sustained strength-training programme will progressively increase the loads and number of lifts over a period of months, the exercises being performed in several sets, each embodying a specified number of repetitions. In the first 2-3 months the main improvement in strength is attributable to increased recruitment of motor units within the pre-existing muscle mass (the 'neural phase' of strength training); thereafter, increase of muscle fibre diameters is the major factor ('hypertrophic phase'). aka resistance training. See also weight training.
