Have a Detailed Exercise Plan Before Training


You would never build a house without a site plan, would you? You would never just pick up a hammer, some nails and start pounding away hoping your dream home will be built perfectly. Just like building a house, when you build your body up, you need a plan to adhere to and follow.

Don't just wander in and pick out the first five exercises you see. Have a detailed plan of action and know which body part you will be training, which exercises you will be using and a specific repetition and set range you will be using. When you have a good exercise plan, you will know exactly what you need to do and your training session will have a smooth flow with no wasted time looking for exercises to perform.

You should know every aspect of your training session before walking into the gym. Will you warm up for 10 minutes before starting your weight training exercises? Will you cool down after your session and spend time stretching your muscles for flexibility? Focus on how your training routine will go from start to finish and this will lead to maximum use of your gym time. The best way is to find specific exercises you want to perform and either write them down or print them out for you to follow as a roadmap during your training session.

You can choose specific exercises from our extensive exercise database here:
