If you are a beginner at lifting weights, you are at the right place. Here we have some useful tips on how to make your new training program more effective.
First things first. Make sure you drink the SDA recommended 8-10 glasses of water each day. Not only can dehydration make you weak, sick and less effective when it comes to lifting weight, it can lead to some serious medical problems.
Also, always have a bottle of fresh water during your workout by your side.
Placing Your Meals
Your first meal should be 30-60 minutes before each workout, and again within 60 minutes after you’ve finished training with weights.
Avoid huge meals. A little protein and carbohydrate is just enough to refuel for next endeavors.
It can be fun and pretty useful to keep a record of what you do, and when you do it. Write down sets, reps and weight used in order to keep track of your progress.
Don’t worry, you won’t look like a nerd. In fact, your gym buddies might start doing it as well.
