The Beginners Guide To Weight Training

My advice to those who are embarking on a new journey to better themselves and to improve their body composition. Whether it be resistance training, weight lifting, weight training, these pointers should help clear a few things up and make it clear what you need to prioritise when you step into the gym and follow the appropriate programming.

To summarise:

– Follow an appreciate programme
– Learn how to engage the muscles and place tension on the working muscles
– Hire a coach or a professional if necessary
– Once you have mastered the art of moving the weight, begin to overload the muscles
– Look to increase training frequency, overall volume and follow a programme incorporating a more advanced approach
– Follow a body part training split which looks to train a muscle group 2 x per week to maximise muscle growth
– Prioritise your weaknesses and change programming when they no longer are a weakness
– Make sure everything you do outside of the gym compliments your training programme.

    I thought gay guys had stopped going for the pumped up look, I thought it had gone out of fashion because it makes your privates shrink?

    Hi Mike my mate who is a personal trainer and as fit as you put me onto your videos and he knows his stuff. Your videos are really informative and well scripted and informed. You come across as really humble not ego ridden or narcasistic which I find a lot of video trainers and gym practitioners to be which is very off putting. My dad was a fitness dude well ripped and fit, gym every other day, swimming and an amateur cyclist before it became as popular in the UK as it is now due to Wiggins and Frume, so it put me off training coz he was a douch but your info and my mates info and encouragement is really positive and motivating. Thanks

    Superb video, thanks. Just something, muscle fibres don't multiple (hyperplasia), they just grow, it is called hypertrophy. Muscle fibres are cells like neurons, they don't multiple.

    This was great, thanks, been searching for "strength training exercises men" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Fonmich Strength Smasher – (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my friend got cool success with it.

    This was great, thanks, been searching for "women's weights exercises" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Seyliana Strength Salgado – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.

    3 sets of 8 to 12 reps on Bench , Pull Down , Leg Press,  Shoulder Press and one super intense set on one arm concentration curls and one arm tricep kickbacks. Workout Mon Wed Fridays. After 6 months move to 5 sets except arms ( keep one set) but only workout Monday and Thursdays, Keep form but try and increase weight on each exercise so keep a log.  Each month change major exercises to incline bench, seated row, deadlift and upright row then back again the following month to the original exercises.  Stay away from sugar related products including alcohol. Take high quality multi vit and mineral and 50 mg DHEA each day and eat loads of protein. Play tennis or squash a couple of times a week and do 15 mins stretching everyday. Take a week out every 3 months and let me know.


    I am 14 and curling 8 kg sets at the gym (just so you know how to advise me weight wise) im a beginner and go to the gym 3 times a week any tips????

    Never lift without a spotter, nor lift more than your limit. If it's a static weight though, and there's no possible way of anything falling on you, then just don't lift anything more than your limit.
