Beginner Tip 1 Week 1 : Start Slow

Don’t just jump right in and start exercising five days a week — that’s a recipe for disaster, says John Higgins, MD, Director of Exercise Physiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. It’s better that you gradually work up to exercising several days per week while you see how your body responds.

“Start low and go slow,” Dr. Higgins said. “The current recommendation is 2-3 days per week” , for at least 30 minutes per day. But for someone who is just starting out, we recommend that they start at 1-2 days per week and ramp it up from there.”

 

Week 1 , start slow don’t rush right into a routine , don’t workout on every machine.  Take your time and create your own pace to fitness greatness.
