Men and Women always want to have a toned body. One of fastest growing forms of exercise is strength training. There are many benefits to strength training; lose fat, increases metabolic rate, increase bone density, increase lean muscles, helps prevent sports injuries, improves balance, helps prevent coronary disease, delays the aging process and improves self image.

Before beginning a strength training program, you need to consult a doctor. Your strength training programs need to be created according to your specific objectives; loss of fat or bulking up your muscles. Choosing your workout routine might be the hardest part of starting your fitness program. But if you follow the guidelines provided by a personal trainer, then you can increase your chances of becoming successful with your fitness goals.

Here are some things to think about before you start:

1. Do not strength train every day of the week, allow 24 to 36 hours between each workout. Consecutive days of doing the exercises can lead to muscle fatigue, possible injury, and overtraining. Your muscle need to rest between workouts.

2. Be realistic, you are not going to lose your weight overnight. Remember you didn’t gain weight overnight so don’t expect it to come to off overnight. First you will need plenty of rest, eat well balanced meals and exercise on a regular basis.

3. It will take time to tone your body. You need to concentrate on one muscle group at a time. Once you are through, you can proceed to your next targeted area. Use machines along with free weights to get an optimum workout. (Just remember you will not get a flat stomach just by doing crunches.)

4. Your strength training programs should be consistent and regular to ensure successful results. Your strength training requires a change in your lifestyle. Bad habits must be replaced with good ones.

5. Strength training requires that you change your routine every 4 to 6 weeks. It will prevent your body from getting bored and makes your workouts more interesting.

The best way to get started is to set your fitness goals. Be certain that your goals are realizable, attainable and realistic. Don’t go for unrealistic ones because you won’t get anywhere and it’s far too out of reach. Identify your health, fitness, and diet needs, and after doing so, set your goals right away. Try to make goals only for yourself, especially if you’re just starting out with this kind of activity.

It seems that health, fitness, and diet are all intertwined. If one of the three is absent, you can’t achieve your goal. A good strength training progarm and a healthy diet are two important things that you should consider.
