Starting a Diet and Fitness Plan

Starting a Workout Plan

When starting a workout plan, how many days should you hit the gym? What areas of the body should be done on what days? Aaron Marino of alpha m. reviews the aspects of starting a workout routine.

The most important piece of advice is to take it easy. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will your Adonis body. Don't get sore or hurt by going overboard. To get the body of your dreams, take it slow and easy. Focus on yourself and your program. The Beginner Program by Aaron allows you pick out what you want to use and switching it out. The program should be done 4 days a week for a few weeks.

Four Day Workout Plan for Beginners

Workout on day 1 and day 2. Take a day off for rest then workout day 3 and day 4. Then take two days off and start again.  This will be a great starting point and will allow your body sufficient time to rest and recover.

  • Day One: Chest and Shoulders
  • Day Two: Back and Biceps
  • Day Three: Triceps and abs
  • Day Four: Legs

 

Exercise Selection

I would pick 4 exercises for the big body part (chest and back) and 3 for the smaller ones (shoulders, biceps, triceps, abs)- then pick 5 total exercises for legs. This should give you a good starting point.  It is a good idea to pick a few new and different exercises the following week.  Or you could switch up the order in which you perform the routine (week one when doing chest you may start with a bench press and so the next week you could still do the bench press but maybe make it your third chest exercise)

Repetitions

On each exercise shoot for between 12 and 15 reps. If you can’t get at least 12, the weight is too heavy.
