Personal Exercise Program
Introduction to Strength Training

This is a twelve week program designed for individuals who have less than 6 months of weight training experience. In the beginning program you will perform a full body workout at each session. Beginners will train three times each week with a minimum of 48 hours between each session to allow your muscles to recover. A typical schedule is Monday, Wednesday and Friday but whatever is most convenient is best. You decide, but make sure you have a day off in between workouts. You will perform the same exercises for the initial 6 weeks of the program and then several new exercises will be introduced.

Be sure to read the introductory material prior to beginning this program. Please read the instructions for each exercise carefully and study the examples provided to ensure you understand how to perform each exercise correctly. Once you have the form mastered, you can start concentrating on increasing the amount of weight that you can lift.
