If you are new to strength training and are thinking of doing your first strength workout, you may want to consider starting off with some introductory workouts to ease your way into it. A lot of people jump into heavy strength training head first because they are excited to get stronger and improve their performance. This usually results in injury or fatigue and can negatively impact their training. So it is important to start out at a level where you can build from and establish proper form and biomechanics. Here is a strength workout for beginners that can get you on the right track!

1. 20 Body Weight Squats (add weight as you get stronger)image

2. 10-15 Push Ups (on knees or regular)

Do this workout 2-3 times per week, but not on consecutive days. You can’t build strength and muscle if you don’t rest in between workouts! As you build strength and confidence you can add weight and the number of reps to your routine, or make it a circuit and do the workout 2 or 3 times. Eventually your workouts will get more diverse and become more difficult. Before you know it you will be a strength training pro and it will be a part of your normal training schedule! #youbetter
