Weight Training For Women – How To Get Started


This is the perfect time to organize your life for a brand new body. Whether you are looking to expand on a new adventure or whether you are looking to improve your fitness level, weight training for women is a very exciting path to travel on. There are so many health and confident benefits for every participant. This article will address some of the basic steps you need to take to get started as soon as possible. First of all you are going to need a training program. Specifically you will need a program that is very detailed in the type of workouts, body safety and workout goals required. This is very important. Without this type of help you will not be able to move forward.


There is a right way to do things then there is the wrong! Which is completely the opposite of what I want you to achieve. Your trainer should provide you with a varied and interesting workout to keep you motivated. It would be to your advantage to have your program detailed enough so that you are working different body parts each time you workout. You should also have adequate time for rest and recovery between your sets. This is just as important as the workout itself.


Believe it or not, your muscles do need to rest. Cardio is helpful but not as much when you are weight training. Therefore finding a trainer who is aware of this aspect is vital to your success. Fortunately for me the trainer I have keep in touch with are of high workout standards. One in particular knows how to get the best out of each workout in the shortest amount of time. That means I am getting terrific results when I just need to know anything new in terms of muscle behavior and new workout tips. She is very detailed and sympathetic to my needs. Best of all she is an online trainer and reachable at anytime of the day for me if I should have any question at about anything I don’t specialize in! I hope you can find a trainer just as good as the ones I deal with from time to time.


Women’s Weight Training Exercises


There are several women’s weight training exercises I like to include in this training program. Some of these are the Push Press, One Arm Rowing with Back Step, and Walking Lunges. One of the reasons I like to prescribe these exercises for Women’s Weight Training is because they are energy costly. Or in other words they are very demanding and expend calories during and afterwords, the calories does not stop burning when your workout ends, but many hours later; that is the beauty of exercise it keeps on giving long after the workout ends. Another this is each exercise targets more than one muscle; so it is time-efficient more than other exercises that target only isolated muscles. Compound exercises or exercises that works many muscles are considered super exercises or the power house of exercises, exercises such as deadlift, squats, clean and jerk, among a few others; these exercises are at the top of the hierarchy of exercises.


Regardless, I will provide you with the instructions of the three exercises, and you can perform one of the three and supplement it with other less demanding exercises if you are just starting to exercise with weight training. These are exercises that work primarily a muscle or two. The Three Women’s Weight Training Exercises are The Push Press (dumbbells or Barbell) – Hold the dumbbells next to your collar bone, and stand with your feet parallel to each other and a little wider than the hip-width stance – Begin the exercise squatting partially (a quarter of a squat), and then forcefully stand straight while you press up with the dumbbells. One arm rowing with back step (using cable machine or tube resistance) – Stand at 12 o’clock facing the anchor of the resistance tube – With the right hand hold the tube (the tube should not be too loose nor too tight to pull) stand with the feet parallel to each other. – Squat about knee-level or higher – With the right hand perform the rowing motion, and at the same time take a step back and turn to 3 o’clock with the right leg – Repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions then switch to the left hand. Walking lunges (hands free or prisoner pose which is more demanding for balance) – Stand with both feet parallel to each other and with a hip-width stance – Take a fairly long step with the left leg and squat slowly until the right knee is behind you and almost touches the ground – Repeat the same for the left leg And make sure you perform the same number of repetitions equally for each
