This is a beginner workout for those who are excited about the challenge of looking better, feeling great and being stronger. What I start some new clients off with is a rep range that will facilitate the entire movement of the particular muscle group we are targeting. As one comes to see there are techniques and tricks that come up to keep things interesting and to confuse the muscle and avoid adaptation.
I have included a quick tip along with the basic exercises one would utilize to get started and build a great foundation. The tips are regarding proper exercise usage, and what to keep in mind when hitting different muscle groups.
Some groupings are larger than others and will require more volume or longer contractions to see the results we are looking for. So, to properly isolate or mindfully connect with muscle you need to have a greater understanding of where muscles attach and their origins.
For now, this workout is an absolute great start to be excited about and to get enough exercises in per muscle group without over doing it for the first few weeks. The short descriptions will help you to know what to expect for a satisfying workout, as opposed to just throwing weight around and not getting the reward of challenging yourself both mentally and physically.
