Weight Training For Beginners
Beginners of weight training should build slowly. Untrained individuals may have some muscles that are comparatively stronger than others. An injury can result if, in a particular exercise, the primary muscle is stronger than its stabilizing muscles. Building up slowly allows muscles time to develop appropriate strengths relative to each other. This can also help to minimize delayed onset muscle soreness. A sudden start to an intense program can cause significant muscular soreness. Muscles contain cross-linkages that are torn during intense exercise. If you experience a lot of muscle soreness make sure to rest at least 48 hours until you train those muscles again. Drink plenty of water and make sure you get enough protein and good carbohydrates in your diet.
