Before the actual strength training you should ask yourself some basic questions
. What exactly do you want to achieve with strength training? Do you want to boost fat burning
, improve your general fitness or visibly build up muscles
? Would you like to train at home, in the gym or in the fresh air? How many days a week would you like to exercise - and what is realistic? If your training fits your lifestyle, you will find it much easier to achieve your goals.
A training diary
can help you to understand the signals your body sends you and to optimize your training over time. Make a regular note of the type of exercises you do, the number of repetitions and the duration of your training. After all, everyone needs different exercises, different training stimuli and a different number of repetitions to achieve their goals.
