How To Find The RIGHT Strength Training Program?
First and most importantly, no matter your fitness objective, resistance training will 💯 help you achieve your BEST goals.
The benefits of strength training extend beyond simply increasing strength and building muscle (i.e., increase muscle size). You’ll gain confidence, sleep better, improve muscular endurance, increase your energy, the winner, lose fat, have fewer injuries (once you perform workouts, slow , controlled and with proper techniques) etc.
How many times should you work out per week to build muscle?
Aim to train at least 3 days per week, alternating different muscle groups. You can perform strength training as much as 5 days.
Regardless of your goal, any smart program should feature each of the following.
Compound exercises: multi-joint moves like squats and pull-ups that hit multiple muscle groups. Muscles don’t work in isolation in the real world, so if you want to build functional, real-strength, the bulk of your program should encompass exercises that train your muscles to be strong together.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do isolation exercises like bicep curls and triceps kickbacks, which target a single muscle and move a single joint. It just means that they shouldn’t be the focus of your workouts.
Increase Weight: By regularly increasing the amount of weight you lift, how you lift it, and/or the exercises you do, your muscles will continue to adapt by growing stronger. Equaling faster results and avoiding hitting or staying in a plateau.
Self Care & Recovery: Even when you find the perfect program for your goals, remember to incorporate recovery and self care techniques into your weekly routine. This means prioritizing quality sleep, nutrition, hydration, foam rolling, massages 💆 as well as scheduling rest/recovery days.
