Beginning weightlifters can follow these tips to muscle building success

Lots of teenagers try to get into lifting at some point. We all have our reasons for it, but most people end up quitting because they aren’t seeing results or they find it too hard. Most of the time they have false expectations for how quickly they should be seeing results or they don’t understand how to go about lifting correctly. Some people quit because they find it too difficult to start lifting on a regular basis or they always end up straining something. Well, the purpose of this article is to help with all of those issues and give some pointers on how to go about lifting for beginners. 

Like I said, one of the biggest reasons that people quit lifting is because they don’t see results as quickly as they’d like because they have false expectations for how fast they should be seeing results. The truth is, it isn’t going to be a super fast journey, especially when you’re starting out. Some people will achieve quicker results than others, but this is because the time between when you start lifting and when you first see results will vary between people depending on your routine and how often you lift. Get a workout plan that fits your schedule and level of experience. It’s also very important to remember that you need to push yourself past your limit but not to the point of injury, which brings me to my next point. 

Lots of people end up quitting weight lifting because they find that after every time they work out, they’re sore or they strained something. Naturally you’re going to be sore after lifting, that’s not a bad thing, but you need to stretch. Stretching is not only good for relieving soreness, it’s good for keeping your muscles strong and healthy. People will also begin lifting with no experience, and they don’t know how to lift, so chances are they’re going to hurt themselves. It’s important to go lifting with someone who has a lot of experience during your first few sessions. Ask them to teach you how to work out properly. This way you’ll be able to work out on your own and you’ll know how to workout without hurting yourself. 

Another good way to get used to working out is doing bodyweight workouts. Bodyweight workouts are workouts that use only your body weight. You aren’t lifting any weights or anything. You’re using just your body. These workouts include pushups, sit ups, crunches, pull ups, chin ups, etc. I recommend doing these every day for about two to three weeks before hitting the gym on a consistent basis. This will help you get used to working out. 

Another thing that I feel is very important for beginner lifters to understand is that you need to eat healthy while working out. It’s important to eat healthy all of the time, and working out is for building muscle, but to reveal that muscle you need to shred the fat and you can achieve that by eating better. Find an app (MadMuscles, MyFitnessPal, etc.), and set some goals for yourself. This will help you more than you know when you’re beginning to lift. 

I hope that these tips will help you if you’re looking to get into weight lifting. I recommend downloading an app(s) to help you form a workout routine and form meal plans and goals. Remember to work your body past your limit but not to the point of injury and go lifting with someone who can help you learn the basics so you don’t hurt yourself. That’s all I have for this article, now go get those gains!
