In space, the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) is the astronauts' weight lifting machine. Resistance exercises are important for astronauts to aid in the maintenance of muscle strength & endurance and bone mineral density.

The on-orbit exercises are designed to target the lower extremities, areas in the body that experience accelerated losses in muscle and bone during spaceflight. The exercises done in space to help reduce muscle and bone loss include: squats, deadlifts and presses.
