Do you want to get stronger and start a strength training routine but don’t know where to start? I recommend that you start with basic body weight exercises. The body is designed to do seven basic movement patterns: Squat, lunge, push, pull, hinge, twist, and walk. A good strength training routine starts with improving these movements patterns, great exercises are squats, lunges, bridge, push-ups or the plank. Before you add weights it’s important that you learn the proper form and technique, luckily there are many variations to make body weight exercises more interesting and fun. Once you are ready for those weights start light and slowly. Listen to your body and aim for 2-3 strength workouts a week. What’s really important is that you stay consistent. It takes at least 4-6 weeks for the body to see physiological changes, so don’t give up if you don’t see muscles popping out after 2 or 3 sessions. Equally important are rest days. The body needs at least 48 hours to recover and rebuilt after lifting weights, so give yourself that time to get stronger.
The best way to figure out what works for you is to start TODAY. Either you do it on your own or hire a coach. Having a coach keeps you injury free, accountable and challenged. I know it’s an expense but it’s an investment in your health and what is more important than that?
