Beginning or Restarting a Strength Training Program
So it’s time to for you to begin a newly structured program to get in shape before the holidays arrive. If you are unsure of what to do for your program, I’m going to give you some advice on what to focus on over the next few months.
With the Katy Summer Slimdown Challenge coming to an end, it’s time for everyone to begin to refocus again. You basically have 12 weeks until Thanksgiving. So it’s time to begin a newly structured program to get in shape before the holidays arrive. If you are unsure of what to do for your program, I’m going to give you some advice on what to focus on over the next few months.
Doing a strength training workout is something that many people feel is a no-brainer. “You just pick some machines and do them,” they may say. But I want to tell you that there is much more to it than that. There are multiple things that should be altered besides just the machine you pick or the amount of weight you use. You should change:
Type of training (stability, strength, power)
For today, let’s talk about the last one. When you begin a strength training program you should focus on stability, strength, and power. Focusing on these in the wrong order or omitting one of them not only makes for a poorly structured program, but can possibly lead to injuries.
Take a look at this video so you can understand a little bit more of what I’m talking about.
To start off the 12 week period, I’m going to share more information on each of these phases every 4 weeks. In a couple of days, look for a video from me where I will talk about the first basic component, Stability.
In the meantime, ask me anything about working out. I’ll be glad to answer your questions.
