Weight Training

Want to weight train but not sure how to do it? If you’re looking to lose weight, build your strength and burn fat but don’t want to diet or do aerobics then weight training might be what you’re are looking for. If you have failed at losing weight with dieting and doing cardio exercising then try weight training.

Weight Training three times a week will help you burn fat, lose weight and define those hidden muscles. You will have a firmer stronger body in as little as 12 weeks whether you are a man or woman. Be careful when first starting out with your weight lifting activity. Start with small weights and work your way up. If you do too much and tear your muscle, you will not be doing any exercise for weeks until your muscle heals.

weight liftingThe best way for first time weight training is to start out by using machine based total gyms. There are hundreds of total gyms on the market today that will give you a great weight lifting work out without putting pressure on your joints. Using machines will give your weaker muscles support and prevent injuries.

Take off one day between your weight training sessions to give your muscles time to rest. What you are essentially doing when weight lifting is breaking down the tissues in your muscles and when you take a day off in between your weightweight lifting lifting, your muscles are healing and new tissue is forming building your muscles. Drink lots of water and eat lots of protein while your muscles are trying to repair themselves.

 

Beginning Workout

Workout with your weight training machine 3 times a week using the following guide:

Do two sets of 8-12 repetitions with a weight heavy enough that the muscle is tired and unable to continue without a 30-90 second rest period.It should take four to five seconds to complete one repetition through a complete range of motion.Rest at least 30 seconds and no more than 90 seconds between sets of each exercise; and 1 to 2 minutes between each exercise.
