Do you need a simple exercise routine for beginners? Here is a warm up and a simple weightlifting program for you.
Don’t be afraid to start lifting weights.
One of my biggest fears when I started resistance training was that I would look foolish in the gym. I’m 5’1″ so many of the machines are hard to adjust to my height, and I didn’t know very many dumb-bell exercises, so it was hard to get good results.
That’s where a Certified Personal Trainer can help. I learned from Craig Ballantyne, John Barban, Jennifer Nicole Lee, and more by searching for programs on-line. I was able to start lifting at home with their programs, and when I switched to the gym, I knew what to do in order to get a safe, effective workout.
Today, I invite you to learn from me, and get started with these exercises. I designed this program for a small group class that I just started teaching, and they asked me to to post it on-line so that they know what to do at home, so thanks students!
Start with a warm up of 8 Stick ups, 8 Prisoner Squats, and 8 Cross Crawls. Repeat.
Super sets: do 8 reps of each pair of exercises. Do each pair three times.
Super Set #1: Chest Press and Glute Raise.
Super Set #2: Bird Dog and Double Tricep extension.
Follow along with the video to learn how. Learn proper form and technique before you increase the weight. By using good form, and contracting your muscles, you can get excellent results with light weights. That’s one of the wonderful things about being a beginner. With patience and persistence, you will get stronger, more confident, and you will train safely.
2/1/2018: Here is the latest “Homework” video.
10 Squats, 10 Romanian Deadlifts, 10 Overhead Press, 10 Rows per side, 10 Curls. Do all exercises as a circuit, and repeat 2 times for a total of 3 circuits.
