The Complete Beginners Guide To How to Start The Gym For The First Time!

this video is going to be a complete beginners guide to starting the gym

for the first time. I'm going to try cover all the things you need to know to

get yourself into the gym, to get yourself active. The main topics covered

is probably the gym essentials that you need to bring with you, your training routine

you should follow, nutrition and a little bit about supplementation as well.

The basic essential thing needed to bring to the gym which you really is music so you can

bring your phone or iPod to listen to music, while there, I bring some headphones I can

listen to the music, i'll bring a water bottle and potentially a towel as well. Next up on

the list I would say it's clothing the clothes doesn't have to be the most expensive gym

brand but it really just needs to be something appropriate that you can wear

in the gym and something that your personally find comfortable and don't

mind going to gym and training in. next up is the workout routine you're going

to be following once you're in the gym these are also known as training splits

or bodybuilding splits, so if you hear that phrase that's what it is a bodybuilding

split is basically a set of days you allocate to working out certain body parts and muscle

groups; one example of a training split would be one called push pull legs split and

that's basically on push day you do loads of pushing motions so you be

working like mainly chest and you shoulders and your triceps because most

of those movements are presses then you've got pull day which would be like

exercises that involve your back and your biceps and rear deltoids

things like that so more like putting so things like deadlift's. it's a good training

split that will allow you to train the desired muscle group you would like to be training the

point you are training intensely but not to the point where you're over exerting

yourself and you won't be able to train for another few days

Muscle soreness is often referred to as DOMS in the gym kind of community

training breaks down your muscle fibers and as they repair they

get stronger and denser which allows them to grow bigger.

For your first two weeks in the gym you're most likely going to feel a lot of

muscle soreness, after most your workouts this is because your

body's and training muscle fibers you probably don't train often on a

daily basis, so just as a heads up that it is common and it will

probably fade after the first two weeks if you continually go to the gym the

same frequency I suggest going to gym four times a week, three times at a

minimum. In regards to what you should be training during your session, if

you watching this video you are most likely a beginner or someone that needs

to go back to the basics, so what you need to do is make sure you're building

your muscle foundation for your body.

A great way to do that is adding compound exercises to your training routine so

fir example whereas bicep curls will just be training your biceps, exercises such

as the deadlift and squat they recruit more than one muscle group

so when you deadlift you're training your back your legs you're working you're working

multiple body parts in a deadlift, same as a with the bench press; you're training your chest

and triceps so that is what a compound movement is and most of your big

lifts are compound exercises and they are really great and a very good to

start with as well is pull-ups about bodyweight exercises like push-ups and

pull-ups are great compound moves to also start and you can do that as a

warm-up as well if you find a routine online most likely it's going to talk

about sets and reps if you don't know what sets on reps are reps just me and

repetitions how many of the exercise are you doing so if you do four sets of

eight you're all let's do introduce four separate instances of eight repetitions

deciding what sets and reps you're going to do more or less depends on the goal

you're looking to do if you're looking to be like a strength douche kind of

strength training increases strength more than anything there are a lot of

those guys do lower rep ranges so the lifts like a heavier weight but live

like say three to five whereas a lot of people don't like my pet retreat type

training and more let's kind of grow your muscles bigger and go for your

stakes they will do something like an eight to twelve me personally I do a mix

for the stronger lifts I try and do six to eight reps I'll do like kind of eight

to twelve which still works in hypertrophy and the big definition if

you want to do solely toning up then you can do like say fifteen minutes onwards

hopefully this video is helping you guys so far if so please hit the thumbs up

button and subscribe anyway let's carry on with the tip one of the

final but most important things we're going to speak about in getting your

routine or exercising is correct form like this is important purely down for

two reasons one good form allows you to more or less avoid the chance of being

injured in the gym cause be doing something incorrectly chances are you're

probably like end up injuries our second reason is because if you don't do the

form correctly you're most likely not going to be talking the most groups you

think you are what's up on a bench press if your

elbows are way too wide out you put in more emphasis on your shoulders than you

are in your chest if you keep your elbows there and start doing

that as you can see my chest is getting more activated than my shoulders so form

is also a good thing to learn in the gym if you're unsure what the correct form

is for an exercise final estimate in the gym or if you don't wanna do that is you

choose with loads of videos in it I may have even have some that give you easy

tips on the quick form next up is nutrition as I said the next thing we're

going to speak about nutrition and nutrition is important purely because

that you can be training as hard as you want in the gym if you really want to

see actual progress you need to make sure you're eating the right fuel food

source is basically to fuel your body to actually show the games the obvious

thing you can go to the gym and work out as hard as you want and you get a little

absolutely lenient relative touchy goal getting the day if you want to get that

kind of physique you need to actually eat good as what's the basis of all the

stories you can't eat junk food and expect to look wonderfully a steak so

you eat nutrient-dense foods that doesn't mean that all you can eat

broccoli and chicken and on green beans you can have a balanced diet so you get

to fit in some of the foods you like best way to locate is the cleaner your

diet is and is the more efficient your trainings going to be and the results

are going to be obviously you can mess up on your diets can be slower progress

so if you will never reveal the physique they've been training so hard for in the

gym you'd have to make sure that your food

is fairly good the best thing I can say is learn how to cook because once you

learn to cook you able to you'll be able to come up with a lot of dishes yourself

that you find tasty that probably still healthy for you and once you know how to

do that it makes Fitness a lot more fun because when you feel like I've got some

guys that you're more likely to fall off whereas if you learn how to make meals

that you like and it tastes good and also healthy you're on to a winner and

that means you'll also be able to be various different types of food rather

than the same basic meal every day and if you need more ideas feel free to

check out my for davian's as lausanne there as well so if you need any food

ideas or you want to kind of get the gist of how to track your macros or

things like that he's go check out my playlist I have for Devi in full search

my channel in his notes phrases that you might get quite a lot if you have

friends I go to the gym supply that a bulking cut in macros and basically

quick gist of all three of them is bulking basically when you eat more than

your daily calorie allowance cutting is when you read lesson it will be bulking

more less you will be getting stronger and trying

to build muscle whereas cutting you've not technically building muscle you're

trying to retain the muscle you have while cutting down to make cell look a

lot more lean alright last but not least well actually last Annalise is

supplements if you're a beginner right now really supplement to be the least of

your focus like eating whole foods and training spectively should be your main

priority right now supplements should be a distance door

and supplements in general you don't really need them they're not essential

some are helpful but they're not essential

my main focus maybe should be following a structured routine eating a bunch of

whole foods or more less basically foods that you have to actually not just drink

and putting a shake real food is how you make real gains so don't be convinced

with these people trying to sell you their mass gainers on Instagram or their

flat tummy team she's all these girls are doing you don't need to do that you

don't need to take any of those stuff if you really really want to look into

getting them some supplements tell that to help you along the ones I'd suggest

would be the basics we choose a multivitamin or what I mean I'm ENGLISH

a multivitamin and official tablet because I was too really good really

really good it got your proteins by foods and whey protein may be a way to

go keep all it really does is help with recovery and as I said earlier the cup

as your muscles recover they grow back stronger and denser and looks bigger if

you do vote on a soft memory a good Ram to try is my protein because they're

reasonably affordable like that one of the most cheapest and and high-quality

protein companies out there there's also muscle food comm they're both very

affordable and young for anything from my program before lower should have like

a 25% discount code so feel free to use that if you want to but as I said

earlier these supplements and I sensual I personally would focus on the training

and eating the food the correct foods hopefully this video was given you all

time those you that may have a little bit of anxiety or a bit worried about

going to the gym don't be trust me the gym is filled with some of the most
