Starting a workout routine can be a bit daunting to a beginner. Where are you supposed to go? What exercises should you do? How long should you exercise for, and how often? These are all questions you might be asking yourself when you first start a workout routine. To find out the answers to these questions and get into a workout routine with ease and confidence, read on.
Start By Learning The Basics
Finding A Local Gym Or Fitness Center
Getting Over Intimidation
The first thing you can do is educate yourself, which is something you're already doing by reading this guide. Learn more about various exercise machines and how to use them properly. The next thing you can do is go with a friend who also works out. This can be a huge help because you can have someone you are already comfortable with show you the ropes. Another thing you can do is to meet up with a personal trainer the first time you go to the gym. A personal trainer will show you how to properly use various exercise equipment.
Planning Out A Workout Routine
For the first couple of weeks, your body will likely be very soar after each workout. If not, you are either not working out enough or are already in very good shape. After the firs couple of weeks, your body will begin to quickly adjust to your workout and you will have to gradually change your workout routine so you don't get into a rut. This is where keeping a workout log comes into play
Keeping A Workout Log
Keeping a workout log will show you how much progress you make and, more importantly, it will show you if you are plateauing. When you start plateauing, you can immediately see it by examining your workout log. Hitting a plateau is not always a bad thing, but can start to minimize the effects of your workout.
