What are free weights?

Answer:
Free weights are those weights that you grab

in the sporting goods store, and then run out without paying for them.  Okay, not really.  Free weights are the dumbbells (the weights, not the weight lifters) and barbells that we see over in the smelly, chalky part of the gym.  Free weights basically allow the user more freedom of movement than the typical workout machine allows.
When you sit down at, stand in, or lay down on the standard workout machine, you are locked into a fixed position and range of motion.   Now, a lot of times this can be a good thing.  It forces the trainee into a more correct form for that given exercise. 

However, it can also be a limiting factor.  Free weights let us do certain exercises outside of a fixed range of motion .  They are also very versatile in that you can create many different exercises with a simple pair of dumbbells or a barbell.

What are Squats?

Answer:
Squats are an exercise in weight training that

works primarily the upper legs and lower back.  Squats are considered a power lift and are one of the competitive lifts.

Without a doubt, squats are the granddaddy of all leg exercises.  The stress that a well performed set of squats puts on the body not only puts a great inroad into your muscles, but will also increase testosterone .  Squats tend to increase overall body strength.

Squats start with a barbell loaded and on a rack at chest level.  While grasping the bar, drop your head and shoulders under and in front of the bar.  With the bar resting on the upper traps and a solid, shoulder width stance, lift the bar free of the rack and step back one pace, and take a stance with your feet anywhere from shoulder width to double shoulder width apart. 

While keeping the chin up, and keeping your back straight , squat your butt toward the floor as if sitting in a chair.  Continue downward until your quads are parallel with the floor .  Take a slight pause and then press the weight up to the standing position.  Continue these reps until you have reached a point of failure. 

It helps to have a training partner handy to spot you if you get stuck.  It is also a good idea to set two pins in the rack at just bellow the point of parallel.  This way, if you get stuck, you can set the weight down on the pins.

What are the benefits of Lifting Weights?

Answer:
Is it really worth it to get into the weight room and

bust your butt sweating?  It's a good question.  Especially when it's something that is (let's be honest) not that much fun.

Well, yeah.  I wouldn't do it if it didn't benefit me.  Aside from looking good in and out of your clothes, there are other personal benefits from lifting weights.

An increase in overall functional strength making it easier to attack the physical challenges of life.

Increased metabolism from growing muscles will increase fat loss.

Increased self esteem from feeling stronger and in shape.

Increase in energy from increased metabolism.

Stronger skeletal muscles, decreasing skeletal pain.  This is especially true for the back and knees.

A sense of purpose and accomplishment as your strength increases.

These are just a few of the many benefits from lifting weights.  Get into the gym and start working out and you'll start seeing the benefits for yourself.
