If you’re a newbie to training, your body will be getting a shock when you begin to workout consistently; it’s a new stress on the body and therefore, needs time to adapt to the training. This also places your body in a little bit more of a vulnerable position, your muscles, joints and central nervous system hasn’t experienced this stress before (or certainly not for a while). It’s for this reason that we strongly advise that beginners spend time working on the basics and building a solid foundation of strength, before progressing on to more complex movements or styles of training.
We advise that if you’re a beginner with minimal to zero experience in the gym, to spend time performing bodyweight and weight based compound movements primarily. Building the confidence and strength throughout the entire body to perform compound exercises and movement patterns correctly with great form. Once this foundation of strength has been built in these movement patterns then it’s time to progress.
