Beginning Strength Training

Getting Started

If you're not familiar with the basic principles of strength training, Weight Training 101 is your starting point for learning about the rules and
guidelines. Now, you don't have to know these principles to start lifting. I
have tons of programs and workouts you can try, but it does help to have a
general idea of how it all works.


Strength Philosophy for Beginners

1. Start light and practice quality form with full range of motion if appropriate.   2. View all sets as practice and stay away from failure.                                           3. Limit exercises to six at most in a workout.                                                           4. Stick to the basic compound lifts.                                                                            5. Utilize linear periodization for as long as possible.                                               6. Stick to reps between 4-6.

Then we celebrate your results!
