Before commencing strength workouts some important factors need consideration to give you the best chance of success. There is possibly more than you think that needs taking into account when considering various strength workouts.

So it’ll probably be helpful to know a bit more before trying to find the best workout for you.

The first consideration is that a strength workout should be part of a comprehensive health and fitness program. When this is not done people generally end up just giving up due to poor results.

So if you want to achieve your strength gaining goals you will first need to be really clear about what you are trying to achieve. Better strength, obviously, but is it just strength or are you looking to build huge muscles? Or are you looking for the lean and ripped,modern look while still becoming stronger.

What about endurance and stamina? It might not always be about getting a bodybuilders physique, you may want better strength but need not to “burn out” too quickly. Getting large muscles without working working on muscle endurance or stamina can have a negative outcome.

Stamina and endurance, as well as strength are important for many sports.

So now you see that there is much to consider when starting muscle building workouts.

With any workout it is best to start slowly and build up but you should still get expert advice. This is important with strength workouts to avoid injury, you will need to push your muscle hard to go beyond what they are normally used to. Diet, nutrition and rest periods are all important too. When your body does not have good diet and nutrition or time to repair muscle,results will suffer.

A variety of different exercises in strength workouts will make sure that all muscle groups are worked on. For example, chest workouts and bicep workout amongst others.

You should always start with a warm up, which may be some light cardio or small weights, then move on to the real strength exercises for the larger muscle groups first. Before finishing with a warm down you could target some specific smaller muscles groups.

Unless you are quite experienced in correct exercise techniques and how many reps, sets and how to choose the amount of weight, you will need expert guidance to get decent results.

The exercises will normally include lat pull downs, par bar dips, seated rows, bench presses, dumbbell presses and also dead lifts, these all require the use of some form of fitness equipment and could involve joining a gym or buying equipment for use in the home.

Push ups, squats and pull ups do not need special exercise equipment. Good strength training will require expert guidance but these exercises are generally suitable for getting started.
