Tips For Beginning Or Getting Back Into Weightlifting
Just getting into weight lifting? Maybe it’s been a while since you have worked out? Either way, the key here is to take it easy. You don’t want to go into the gym, lift your max, and head home. I guarantee that if you do at this stage of your workout, you’ll have a hard time getting out of bed the next day.
I recommend a gym membership. I understand it’s another expense in life, and I don’t want to come off as sounding snotty, but even at my poorest times in life, I’ve always kept a gym membership. In San Diego, we have a large number of 24 Hour Fitness centers, as well as LA Fitness. Most areas have these types of gyms. They have everything you need for beginning weightlifting and beyond and they are reasonably priced (I pay $25 a month). Since I’m spending money on a monthly basis, it gives me incentive to actually use the gym. Plus, the price of weightlifting equipment is ridiculously expensive.
