11 Beginner Strength Training Tips for Women

Learn Proper Exercise Form

This is very important; you should take the time to learn the right way to exercise right from the start. It's much better to learn the right way to do something from the start than to get into bad habits and try to change them later.


Stick to the Basics

If you are new to strength training or just starting to take it seriously, you should stick to a few routines for the first few months.


Use Acceptable Alternatives

You might not be able to move around well enough to do some exercises safely and correctly, or you might not have the equipment to do the exercises that are suggested.


Focus on Getting Stronger

Almost everyone, no matter what their main goal is, should work on getting stronger. It's especially important for people who are just starting out because they need to build up some power.


Know That You Will Not Get “Big ‘n Bulky”

I'm sick and tired of telling women that lifting weights won't make them "big and bulky," but I have to because that myth is still alive and well.


Be Consistent and Don’t Give Up

We want results, and we want them as soon as possible. In our society, it's all about getting things right away, and I'm no different. 


Set Motivating Goals

The goal of spending an hour on the exercise machine three to four times a week is not motivating, which is one of the reasons why strength training is better for building a stronger.


Don’t be Intimidated

I get a lot of emails from women who want to know how I got the courage to lift weights in a gym full of guys for the first time. I've never had this trouble myself, but I've helped people who did.


Follow a Beginner Strength Training Program

If you’re a beginner, you need to train like a beginner – this will be the simplest and quickest way to get results


Be Excited!

You hear this from strength teachers and people who have been lifting weights for a long time: everyone would like to go back to the beginning because that's when you make the most progress and the fastest. 


Start Today

You might want to find a neighborhood strength coach who can show you how to work out right. You might need a good exercise program. Or maybe all you need to do is go to the gym.
