7) How To Start Strength Training!Getting up and beginning a gym workout can be brutal. You feel out of shape, and it's just easier to put off going to the gym till tomorrow, or maybe the next day...
But you need just need to start going. And here's how to start - these tips will make it way easier to go, and FUN to start exercising.
The main thing to remember is that for the first week or two going to the gym isn't really about building great strength. It's about building the enjoyable habit of going to the gym, which leads to great strength.
Before You Go to the Gym
• Buy athletic or lifting shoes and shorts. Nothing overly fancy, but enough to protect you and make you look like you belong in a gym. And looking like you belong in the gym will make you feel like you belong there, too.
• Have a workout plan before you go. I cannot stress this enough, you need to know what you'll be doing when you get there. Here's a basic one to get you going.
Otherwise you'll probably feel a bit lost. With your plan, also have...
• A log book, log sheet, workout journal, or a talking parrot with a really good memory. Recording the weight you lift is vital for seeing steady improvement.
• Allow extra time that first day. Going to a new gym, or to the gym for the first time, will take a little longer than you think.
At The Gym
• Enjoy it! Chat and make friends with the staff. You'll be going there regularly, so make it a place where people know your name and you feel welcome right from the get-go.
• Stick to the workout plan you made earlier.
• Go at times when there aren't a lot of people there. This will make the gym experience less intimidating if you don't have to watch people in way better shape than you lift scarily huge weights.
Going at noon times, later in the evenings, and/or doing a Tue./Thu./Sat. lifting schedule will give you a less crowded gym to workout in.
• Keep your workout to about 45 minutes, an hour tops. This maximized testosterone production, and I know I work out more efficiently when I have a time limit.
• Do a 5 minute jog or run on a treadmill to warm up, and some stretches to cool down at the end. This'll lessen the chance of injury.
• Remember, don't lift too enthusiastically the first time. You don't want to hurt yourself on the first day and you'll be going to the gym regularly, so no need to be epic.
A regular schedule is far stronger than overabundant enthusiasm for one day.
After The Gym
• Drink lots of water and have some lean protean to help rebuild your muscles.
• Smile on the way out. You are victorious!
