Every day, more and more people are hitting the gym to achieve their fitness goals.
In your case, you may be doing it to improve your health, to stay in shape, to rehabilitate an injured knee, or just to look better, but what is clear is that in beginning weight training, your body must go through a period of adaptation.
The anatomical adaptation you will be implementing in the first few weeks of working out consists of getting your body moving and working your muscles, ligaments and tendons in a way they have not been worked before. With our recommendations, you’ll learn how to lay a solid foundation for the adaptation process.
If you\’ve never trained in a gym or have been inactive for a long time, pay close attention to these recommendations:
1- Warm up for 5 or 10 minutes by doing some type of aerobic exercise. Sportize.me will always tell you in your workout sessions to warm up first.
2- Master the proper technique for the exercises that are assigned to you. You have access to photographs, videos, and detailed, step-by-step explanations for all the exercises we\’ll recommend in your personalized plan.
3- You should start out with a weight that allows you to do 12 or 15 reps in a non-forced manner.
4- We\’ll have you start out with a set for each exercise the first few weeks, then increase it to 2 or 3 sets later on, normally.
5- Rest in between sets if you need to. We\’ll specify the rest period between sets that goes best with your goal.
6- Avoid rapid, jerky movements. Follow the exact instructions for each exercise. If you still have questions, ask the experts on the Blog or in the Sportize.me Forum.
7- Normally we\’ll have you train 2 or 3 times a week, resting for at least one day in between sessions.
As you can see, exercising with sound guidance will help you accomplish your goals more effectively.
That’s why we specialize at Sportize.me in helping you achieve your goals in a personalized way.
