Grow Without Weights


Here’s a bandwagon to jump on: If you’re just starting to work out, plyometrics (explosive jumping exercises) may be as effective as lifting weights.

But don’t completely ditch deadlifts: Plyometric exercises didn’t work the hamstrings as well as weights do, the researchers found.
