A Great Weight Workout for Newbies
If you’re new to strength training, chances are you may have muscles that haven’t been challenged since…well…ever.
A great approach to take for newbies is to incorporate exercises into your program that use multiple muscles, which are also known as multi-joint or compound exercises.
The following workout is something that new weight lifters can do three or four times per week. The key is to be sure to lift a weight that allows you to be safe and use proper form, while still being heavy enough to give you a really good workout.
What’s great is that if you’re intimidated with all the machines you find in the gym or have just purchased a basic weight set for home, you can do the entire workout with just a mixture of a barbell and/or dumbbells and a bench.
