Things we should do as a beginner in Gym
Now that you have made your mind to start working out and transform your busty bulky Fat-bag into a perfectly sculpted body, There still a long road to walk because getting into a gym is a bizarre experience at first let me take you through an imaginary tour of how most people’s first day of most people goes.
You walk into the gym, change into Gym attire, and tie up your shows with full motivation. And now you walk into the equipment area and the arena is right in front of you. That’s where you think did you signed up for the right thing or not.
For a moment when you see all physically fit persons training themselves with all sorts of complicated machines, cables. Someone on a bench is doing the deadliest weights that you have ever seen or on your right, someone just completed his 280th push-up. You feel numb you how can I ever do that or what are these people going to feel about me when they will come to know that I am a noob.
All these questions and insecurities of being weaker than all other people in the room make you take a step back. Now is the real situation, the first step to change and the hardest step is right in front of you.
Don’t worry about feeling stuck on your first day even EMINEM choked on his first attempt.
Remember and recall IT’S YOUR FIRST DAY AND YOU ARE HERE TO CHANGE YOURSELF NOT TO BE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.
Before beginning your journey of sweating and swearing it's very important to get it in head that people around you have been doing and working on their body for a very long time and if not long still before you.
Now that you are not going to get carried away by seeing someone lifting 80kgs on the chest you are all set to accomplish that in the nearby future.
Why am I thrusting upon not feeling over-charged after seeing other people doing the workout with extreme techniques is because most of the time new people try to copy these things they have a hard-hitting experience and as a result they are unable to continue the gym and get back same unhealthy lifestyle?
Follow these instructions while you walk into the gym on that very first day.
- Look out for a trainer or someone who can take you on a little tour of the entire gym.
- See every equipment carefully and how are other people using it for which part of their body.
- If the interaction is happening with other people then care to ask why are they working out on that certain equipment.
Once you are done with a quick tour of the gym and equipment, Take yourself to the cardio section and start with a little warm-up, Follow the routine as it will help you in getting heat and charged up.
- Stretching: Side lunges, calf lunges, Shoulder and back stretching, Hip flexor and cobra, a combination of these for 15 minutes will open up your muscles.
- Running: As a lot of studies suggests that running is undoubtedly one of the best fitness activity and its one of the oldest exercise as well. If you have a chance to run and reach your gym that’s a huge bonus and if not try to give an initial 10-20 min on the treadmill you can keep speed according to you but increasing it at regular intervals of time is highly recommended.
Once you have exhausted your 30 minutes into charging yourself go back into the weight section.
Remember it's your first day and the best you can do to today is to enjoy the sweat and heat of your body. So rather than starting with some rigorous lift or exercise try the simplest cables with as lowest as possible weights.
TRY OUT EVERYTHING
Do not follow someone’s table and do the right chest, back, biceps or legs specifically on your first day instead sit on every machine and try to work out on them without any weights or as lowest as possible. As your first day, you have the liberty to be open to which exercise you can be doing in the upcoming session. Hence try most of the things during your first day and see how does it made you feel and which part of the body felt different from which exercise.
Do not go hard on yourself as you are just giving it a try. Soon you will have a lot to choose from so do not make the same exercise a routine for the first few sessions.
