The 4 Most Important Body Building Workouts For Beginners

Aug 17, 2007
There are an incredible amounts of different weight lifting workout routines available for you to choose from, and it can often seem like an arduous and rather frustrating task when you're trying to decide which ones are right for you. The most important factor is to remember to first consult your physician, not only to see if you are able to participate in physical activity, but also so that he can offer you ideas relating to what sort of weight lifting workout routines you should be participating in.

Different Types of Weight Lifting Workout Routines

One of the most important components that you need to consider when trying to construct a proper weight lifting workout routine for yourself is that you need to lay the foundation onto which your body can grow. You must be sure to start off without a weight lifting workout that your body can handle, rather than starting off at a difficult level and possibly injuring yourself. Remember that you can always work your way up, but if you begin by starting at an too difficult level... you can seriously damage your body.

If you are a beginner, you should remember to stick to big, major movements. AND if you're a beginner, you must know that basically any type of weight lifting exercise will show results. As you progress, you can slowly add on more resistance and more weight, as you will need to keep the level of the workout up to your ability. But if you are using less weight than you should be, you won't notice any improvements.

Doing multi-joint exercises, this means using several muscle groups at once, is the quickest and most effective way to increase your strength and gain muscle mass. Some of the basic exercises when it comes to that, are:

1.) Squats: This will work on your quads and is the basic foundation of any weight training program
2.) Bench press: This will work on your chest, shoulders, and triceps muscles
3.) Lat pull-downs: This will primarily work on your largest upper back muscles
4.) Overhead press: This will work on your shoulders and you can complete this exercise seated with dumbbells.

Cardio can either be done before or after your workout routine. Some of the most important things to remember concidering cardio work outs, are:

1.) Change your daily routines and habits in order to give top priority to your fitness goals

2.) Invest in a membership at a fitness facility,

And last but most certainly not least...

3.) Keep a journal of your goals and achievements in order to keep yourself motivated. This simply shows you how far you have progressed since you began.

If you're just beginning, these are the very basics to start out with. Now, get it pumping and growing...
