Beginning Weight Training Tips

Good morning!! 🌞
This information may be confusing to those who are beginning weight lifting. I had these questions too, and now that I know the answers, I find my workouts to be much more enjoyable and structured. Let’s me clarify what these terms mean. 

Muscular Endurance & Stabilization
This level is for those who are just starting out with weight lifting. Stabilization is basically getting the right muscles to fire, with the right amount of force, in the proper plane of motion, and at the right time. This level sets the foundation for the next two levels. I recommend starting at this level for at least 3 week’s, so your muscles can get used to picking up weights.
Muscular Hypertrophy
Hypertrophy basically means gaining muscle.

And if you’re a woman, no you won’t bulk up at this stage. You’re most likely to get toned during this stage.  

Maximal Strength
This level is designed for athletes or anyone who has completed the first two levels and are looking to build even more strength. The goal of this phase is to develop the highest amount of force possible. 

*****Nutrition plays a big part when starting a weight training program. To get lean and toned you need to eat right in order for your body to experience change. 

I hope this article helps you and answers some questions for you as you begin your fitness journey. Let me know if I could be any help! 

I do have a 7-day challenge group starting next Wednesday called, “A week of hard labor.” It is for those who are just starting out on their fitness journey and who wants to lift weights. I recommend adding weight lifting to your workout plan to increase weight loss and to get toned. 

Comment down with an emoji if you would like to join my 7-day challenge group!

Always,
Be healthy. Be kind. Be a game changer. 👊🏽

What is interval training?

What is interval training?
Interval training is when you vary your speeds during a workout, this is mainly done during a cardio workout. 
How to do interval training? 
Set your timer to zero. Begin with an easy walk for 5 minutes. Jog for a minute and a half. Run for 30 seconds. Walk for four minutes. So on and so fourth. Interval training typically lasts for 20-30 minutes. 
Why should I add interval training to my workout plan?
Interval training burns a lot of calories in a short amount of time. This type of training is much better for you than going for a walk at a steady pace. It also boosts your metabolism and your athletic performance. If you repeat this workout every other day the you’ll learn how to run faster and longer than you could ever thought possible.

Also, combining this weight a strength training workout can get you lean and toned in no time. 
Where can I do this?
Interval training can be done on any cardio activity. Whether it would be running outside, on the treadmill, the elliptical, stationary bike.. 
Add this to your workout this week and I can promise you you will see your goals soon with this addition.
Always, 
Be healthy. Be kind. Be a game changer. 💪🏽
