Getting Started In The Gym

If you are just beginning exercise you want to take it slow and gradually build up through progressive overload. You should judge your fitness levels before jumping into regular workouts and also check with your doctor to be sure you are able to begin exercise.

When you get to the gym always start with a 5-10 minute warm-up. This is extremely important ( will be described in further detail on further posts). After your warm-up you can decide if you want to do some strength training or some cardiorespritory fitness, which is some aerobic activity lasting anywhere from 20-60 minutes (the different types-fat burn, cardiovascular, anaerobic, aerobic- will all be discussed in later posts) . Or strength training, which if you are just starting should be light weight with more repetitions, you can choose to split your workouts in many ways but you should give each muscle a chance to recover between strength training.

When finishing up that training you can do come abdominal workouts or just jump right into the cool down, but remember don't do abs until the end of a workout because you need your core to be strong when training. Also don't do abs every day. When finished you should always end with a light cool down, either a light jog or bike, then finish off with stretching (static stretching is recommended). For best results stretch 30-60 seconds per stretch with 1-3 sets.
