How to Get the Best Results From The Gym

get the most out of your workout

When you step into a gym with lots of equipment it’s easy to become overwhelmed. If you want to know how to get the best results you need a plan to know what body parts to be train if you want to achieve your fitness goals much faster.

Don’t be one of those people that goes to the gym with no clue what exercises they’ll be doing until they walk out onto the gym floor.

I remember when I first started working out in the gym I would jump from one machine to the next without knowing what I was really doing.

Okay so maybe that’s not an appropriate picture to demonstrate what I’m talking about but you should get the idea :)

Guy’s still make the mistake jumping for one piece of equipment to the next without having a detailed program to refer to each time they do a different exercise.

I remember one guy I trained at the gym, I’d explain to him at the very beginning that today we would be training chest and triceps.

For the first couple of chest exercises all would be going great then when I’d turn around I’d find him running on the treadmill.

I have friends who are the same way; I’d ask them, “So what are you training today”? They wouldn’t have a clue, they’d just say things like, “I’ll know when I get there”, or “I’ll do whatever you’re doing”.

You need a plan to succeed right?

You cannot stay motivated if you have no real idea which muscles you’ll be training.

A lot of people still make the same mistake of not knowing how to train properly and lack an effective program that will give them the best results every time.

Get the most out of your gym sessions

In this post I will list a beginner’s guide to getting the body you want if you stick with it consistently week in and week out. If you want get the body you always wanted, you won’t until you put in the effort and get your money’s worth from your gym membership.

Before any exercise you do I suggest you warm up for at least 5 minutes.

Many people skip warming up. It’s important and will prevent injury. You can warm up by stretching or even walking or jogging on the treadmill before doing your main exercises.

Weight Training Tips

Train large muscle groups with smaller muscle groups in one session. So what I mean is train chest and triceps on Monday, then back and biceps on Tuesday, etc.

I Avoid training 2 large muscle groups in one exercise because if I do I will only feel more exhausted. It’s much better to put all your energy in larger muscle groups and still have enough energy left over to train smaller muscle groups.

Get a gym Buddy – You will get even more out of your workout if you have a mate there to assist you when you are lifting heavy weights. I bring my brother along with me and always helps during times when I struggle on the last rep.

Work through the pain – If you are a beginner you will most likely experience soreness in your muscles after a vigorous workout. It normal happens within 24 hour. That’s normal. It’s actually called (DOMS) delayed onset muscle soreness.

This is good pain and it shouldn’t stop you from continuing your workout throughout the week. That’s why I suggest lifting light weights for the first week so the soreness won’t be severe.
