Resistance exercise includes 'pushing', 'pulling' or 'lifting' activities, in which the muscles work against some form of resistance to overcome an opposing force. The resistance can be provided by body weight (e.g. push-ups), hand-held weights - free weights (e.g. dumbbells), or pushing or pulling using machines as resistance - fixed weights.
Resistance exercises include:
- Weight training e.g. bicep curl with dumbbell

- Gymnastics or plyometric exercises (hopping bounding e.g. jump squats
- Some styles of Yoga / pilates
