Exercise selection

If you are overweight and looking to take up weight training, good decision!

Our advice to you would be don’t spend an hour jogging on the treadmill then meander over to the weights area to do a few bicep curls.

In doing so you will be targeting a small muscle with a low calorie expenditure.

Start off in the weights area and go for the most physically demanding exercises i.e. squats, deadlifts etc.

Should you only be doing 2/3 sessions per week go for full body routines. If you are going for 4 sessions a week try an upper/lower split.

Should you have any energy left get on the treadmill for some low intensity cardio.
