Are you tired of your current strength program, or are you lost and do not know where to start and need help. Finding the best strength training program can be hard and frustrating, there are so many training programs out there that claim to be the best for everyone like High intensity interval training, or programs that just focus on aerobic exercise, while these might be great programs but it may not be the right one for you.
Let’s be honest we are all guilty of being that guy/gal who goes in the gym and do some resistance training that focuses on one particular muscle group. (I.E. Upper body, lower body, back day, arm day etc..) Or we use so many resistance bands that we look ridiculous, or we just go in and lift without learning how our bodies move.
This is where I come in to help! I want to be the first to tell you that there is no one program fits all. You have to test and find the right one that fits your training style, body type and fitness goals. You should be cycling through a program and avoid doing the same thing over and over. A program that has a lot of bicep curls multiple times a week might not be the best program.
ANSWER THESE 3 QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT STRENGTH PROGRAM.
What are your goals?
What are your limitations?
These are some basic questions you should ask yourself to prevent you from overthinking and over analyzing.
Having the right goals, knowing your limitations and taking necessary steps before starting a program will help you narrow down the best strength training program for you.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?
There are no right or wrong answers here. Your goals are totally up to you. If you don’t have a goal before starting a strength program, you will be lost and your training will be meaningless and messy.
But how do you find out your goals? Do you just sit down and say “Okay I want to lose 10 pounds by next week, just go to the gym everyday and work”? This may or may not work but is this realistic? Do you have a proper game plan to get you from point A to point B?
This is where you should use the SMART goals technique to set your goals and prepare you for success.
