How to Continue Working out If You Don’t Know what you are doing?

What do you do when you decide to start a new workout routine?


You may have practiced your entire life, and only want a new workout to keep things exciting. And maybe for the first time you get started with exercise and do not know how to continue working out. Either way, beginning a new training regimen is something that we’re all dealing with from time to time.

How to Start Working Out

1. Decide what you want to do well.

The more specific you are on what you want to do well, the easier it is for you to prepare for success. If you’re unsure as to how to start, then make a decision. It doesn’t even have to be the “correct” decision. Just choose something you want to do well, and start moving in that direction. There will be plenty of time for future changes and optimization.

2. Ask somebody who has been there.

Do not be afraid to ask questions and reach out. At some point, everybody was a beginner. Your greatest asset is the people around you.

3. Get the idea and skip the details.

It is where most people give up on their new routine, and never get moving. If you are looking for straightforward guidance, fitness is one of the worst industries. Everyone seems to have a different way of doing things and they’re all convinced their way is the only way.

As a result, stressing out on the details of a new workout routine is normal. Will I need to do 5 sets or 6 sets? The page says work out on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but on Tuesday and Thursday, my friend did it. What one will be right?

Let’s take a breath deep.

Here’s a little information bomb for you: At the beginning, the details don’t matter.

You will have plenty of time to work out the timetables for practice, rest times, amount, and preparation. Once you start a new workout routine, all that matters is to get going. Get the key concept, stick to the plan, and the information will start to flow in.

And that’s the real objective in the beginning: make starting as easy as possible.

4. Go slow.

If we decide to initiate a new exercise routine most of the time it is because we were inspired to do it. Getting motivation is awesome but, as I said earlier, it can be a double-edged sword.

Why? Firstly because there are variations in motivation, which means that, you cannot rely on it. This is why instead of being inspired; you want to develop good habits.

You want to begin slowly at the beginning. Note, the goal is not to do extreme workouts but to get in the habit of doing the workouts.

You want the workouts to be easy at first. In the first 3 or 4 weeks, Your only task is to stick to the schedule and build the capacity to do the workout. No matter what the result is.


5. Don’t miss workouts.

If I could summarize everything, the outcome will be three words: don’t skip workouts.

If we are frank with ourselves, then this is usually what our workout calendar looks like:

  • A month or two of daily workouts.
  • Become ill. Miss several workouts. Spend the next month getting back in shape.
  • A month or two of daily workouts.
  • Changes to timetable. Life is going crazy. Miss several workouts. Spend the next month getting back in shape.
  • A month or two of daily workouts.
  • traveling. Break. off time. Miss several workouts. Spend the next month getting back in shape.

And right on and on.

Even with your schedule shifting or taking a break, there’s nothing wrong but you need a program to make it as quick as possible to get back on track. It is especially true when you are just beginning a new workout routine.

Each workout’s impact is very low but the cumulative impact of sticking to the schedule is huge.

6. Pick an exercise, and get started

There are more exercises in the world than you can count, but I hope you can offer two hands to list the relevant ones.

Pick one you want to be good at, and get started.
