First of all, take a deep breath. Although weight training may seem like an easy task, we know that it requires a lot of knowledge about your body’s makeup and training techniques. As a beginner, it is important to focus on technique rather than killing yourself with the heaviest set of weights in order to work the right body parts and protect yourself from injury. Let’s start you off on the right foot with this beginner basics program.
To begin, focus on each muscle group twice a week starting with upper body on day 1 and lower body on day 2. Keep in mind that it is important to have rest days so that your muscles have time to recover. Click the links below to start the beginner basics program!
