Starting a new program in the gym can be daunting, especially for a newcomer. It takes time to adjust to the new environment and convey confidence in what you do. Here are a few tips that might help you to get started. ðªHave a plan. Planning your workouts in advance is incredibly important for both confidence and consistency. If you donât have a plan then it is likely that youâll walk into the gym and meander from machine to free weights with no real certainty to your actions. If youâre uncertain about your actions then, chances are, youâre probably not overly confident in them either. ðªKnow your exercises. This one pretty much goes hand-in-hand with planning your workouts. After all, whatâs the point in planning your workout and writing all your exercises down, but having absolutely no idea how to perform any of them? Knowledge breeds confidence.Â
If you know what exercises youâre doing and how to do them then youâre going to be more confident performing them. ðª Start simple. Overwhelming yourself is the last thing you want to be doing if youâre not confident in the weights room. Donât try and pack absolutely everything into your workout.Try to avoid planning routines that are loaded with supersets and drop sets.Instead, choose about 4-6 exercises, depending on what youâre training and learn the heck out of them (if Iâm being completely honest, 4-6 exercises should be enough to completely torch every muscle group anyway. I brutalised my legs the other day with a routine that consisted of only squats, leg press, and seated leg curl). ðªMake fit connections. Fit people bring motivation, inspiration, and knowledge. They inspire you to be consistent. They motivate you to turn up the gym every day. They teach you correct technique and new training methods.
