Weight Training Tips for Beginners
Always start with machines as
Hi, my name is Lisa Feldermann and I'm here at Blink Fitness in New York. I'm here today about some weight training tips for beginners.I always recommend to exercise two to three times a week to start, and to always start with machines. They're the easiest way to get some strength training in with the littlest risk for injury.In order of choosing the proper weight for you, which is always the next question that I get, for that, you just want to pick a weight that you can get about ten reps in, and the last two reps should be a little hard but not so much that you're struggling. You want to do two to three sets of ten reps for each exercise.The exercises that you should choose to start off with, I recommend doing two to three times per week and doing total body workouts every time. That way you hit the same muscle groups a couple of times every week.Some good examples of exercises would be a chest press, a row, a lat pulldown, an overhead press, and do those four exercises for your upper body. And for the lower bosy I recommend a leg press, a leg extension, and a leg curl. And with those seven exercises, you really hit all muscle groups and doing that a couple of times a week will really get you some results pretty quickly.That's a really safe, effective way to start your strength training for beginners.
