Resistance training is simply any form of training in which you're working against some type of force that "resists" your movement (https://www.bodybuilding.com/content/beginners-guide-to-resistance-training.html). The best part about resistance training is that you can do it with or without equipment and with or without the gym. Because of this resistance training has become essential to many people’s fitness regimes, including my own!
So how do you do a resistance training workout? Any exercise where you push, pull or try to work against some type of resistance can be resistance training (https://www.verywellfit.com/what-is-resistance-training-3496094). Whether this is resistance against gravity, such as a push up or pull up or resistance against the lifting and moving of weights such as a chest press, dead lift or leg press... resistance training is a simple as that! Most weight-lifting exercises are considered resistance training but there are other kinds of activities that fall under the heading of resistance training, including body weight exercises, dragging sleds, running with parachutes and movement in water (https://www.bodybuilding.com/content/beginners-guide-to-resistance-training.html). You can up the intensity to your current exercise routine by adding resistance through the use of cable machines and incorporating weighted bars, kettle bells and resistance bands.
