Advice for Beginning Lifters

Hello everyone. Just a thought or two after today's session at the Y. If you've started weight training, congratulations. Remember, 3 times a week at the gym is generally ideal. 

More importantly, you're going to have to figure out what works best for you. It doesn't matter that a specific training strategy is said to be optimal by some study or influencer. 

It if gets you injured, or if you're not progressing, forget it. The most important thing is that you're consistent and that you keep track of your progress. I do this through pictures. 

This way you can more objectively tell what works and what doesn't. 

Consistency and form are key -- listen to your body and you'll make progress steadily! 

Have a wonderful day!
