Tips For a Safe and Successful Strength Program

Tips For a Safe and Successful Strength Program
October 22nd, 2019 0 Comments

Strength training whether it involves weighted or body weight exercises can present a range if difficult movements that can place the body in unsafe situations if not performed correctly and with guidance.

Tips for a safe and successful strength program include:

  • Warm up and cool down at each session
  •  Focus on form not weight (how much you are lifting)
  •  Work at the right tempo to avoid getting movement from momentum
  • Keep challenging your muscles by slowly increasing weight/resistance, but ensuring your technique is good
  • Pay attention to your breathing during workouts, this helps with control and load
  • Work each major muscle group at least 2-3 times per week
  • Give your muscles time off, as strength training causes minor tears in the muscle (this is the soreness we feel a day after the session), at least 48 hours between your next strength training session on the same muscle group
