'I need to start my strength program again.'
As a strength coach, I hear this when I call friends I haven't talked to in a while, see family members, walk into former clients at the Farmer's Market, and talk to random strangers on airplanes (yes, I'm that person who actually talks to strangers on airplanes).
The first step is acknowledging you could be stronger and that you 'need a program.'
From there comes anxiety in planning what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.
Followed by feelings of failure, self-pity, usually negative self-talk....
It does NOT have to be like this.
My tip for you:
- Start with the basics: squat, push-up, a core exercise that makes you feel good and a posture exercise for your back muscles
- Do just one set of five reps of each
- Do it every day when you wake up
Do that for one month.
The next month increase it to one set of 10 repetitions.
Then two sets of 10 repetitions.
As much as I like to make it seem like it's rocket science: it's not.
Physiology happens. Your body learns to move how you practice moving. The muscles you challenge get stronger.
