Just NowLets start with the four basic principles of weight training: Overload: This just means you expose your muscles to more weight, resistance or stimulus than they are used to performing during your normal every day activities . To do this, you need to lift an amount of weight that only allows you to complete the intended amount of repetitions.

1. Train like a bodybuilder to be one. It seems to be that these days very few athletes train like a bodybuilder. There are hundreds of guys who believe that lifting heavy weights with very low reps, especially on – bench presses, squats, and deadlifts, will help them build muscles.
2. Stop copying the big guys. Lately but eventually, average bodybuilders have understood about the factor that separates them from a hardcore bodybuilder is nothing but – Superior Genes.
3. Get yourself a training partner. Training solo? Well, it’s time to get a training partner, buddy. No, not that we suggest getting someone who yells to motivate you, rather look for a partner who is a bit stronger than you, so that you share a friendly rivalry between each other.
4. Don’t do exercises that are dangerous for you. Time and again, we have advised you that certain exercises like deadlifts, squats, barbell rows and military presses are ‘must to-do’ for attaining super-size gains.
5. More volume for lagging body parts. Blame it on the human nature to work hard on the things that show quick visible results and put a little effort into things that look worthless.
6. You can cheat with the form. Going with a perfect form in each set will limit the amount of weight you can lift. Certain exercises which require safety, like deadlifts and squats, should, without any doubt, be performed with strict form.
7. Change the workout routine. Doing the similar exercises week in week out will only allow your muscles to adapt the workload and hence hit a plateau. You should certainly change your exercises periodically, vary your training routine, and include HIIT sessions and many more things that will ensure that your muscles always grow.
8. Don’t forget the legs and back, buddy. If you find it difficult to break past a certain bodyweight, then it’s the high time for you to focus more on your leg and back training.
9. Don’t neglect odd pains. You know it’s a matter of shame when you have to do away with workout and gym because of an injury. Most of the time, your body shows symptoms of pain especially in areas like shoulder or lower back that look like getting hurt.
10. Take a vacation. It’s rightly said – Too much of anything is dangerous. Too much of pushing beyond-the-limits in the gym for a long time is certainly dangerous.
11. Warm up. Some aerobic activity, such as a 5-minute jog or brisk walk, will increase blood flow to your muscles and prime them for a good workout. ...
12. Start with lighter weights. You want to start with a weight that you can lift 10 to 15 times with proper form. ...
13. Gradually increase the weight. When you can easily do the recommended number of sets and reps, increase the weight by 5 to 10 percent. ...
14. Rest for at least 60 seconds in between sets. This helps prevent muscle fatigue, especially as you start out.
15. Limit your workout to no longer than 45 minutes. You can get the workout you need in this time frame. ...
16. Gently stretch your muscles after your workout. Stretching can help boost your flexibility, ease muscle tension, and reduce your risk of injury.
17. Rest a day or two in between workouts. Resting gives your muscles time to recover and replenish energy stores before your next workout.

1. Progressive Overload. The basis for increasing any parameter of fitness – strength, size, endurance, etc. – is making your muscles work harder than they’re accustomed to.
2. Isolation. Muscles can work together or separately. If you want to maximally shape or build a muscle independently, you must isolate it from the other muscles as best you can through anatomical position changes.
3. Adaptation. Part of constant growth is never allowing your body to adapt to one specific training protocol. If you constantly vary your exercises, sets, reps, weights, rest times and angles of pull upon your muscles, they can never adapt to the stress.
4. Muscle Priority. Train your weakest body part first when your energy is highest. Great intensity builds muscle, and your intensity can only be great when your energy is high.
5. Flushing. You must get blood into a muscle and keep it there to produce growth. When you train your chest by doing three or four exercises for this body part alone, without exercising another body part until you complete all your chest exercises, you’re using the flushing principle.
6. Consistent Tension. Momentum can be your muscles’ worst enemy. If you train so fast that you swing the weights through most of their full range of motion, you decrease the work of the muscle.

1. Overload. For any adaptation to take place, the human body is required to exert itself beyond the normal stress levels of training.
2. Progression. I like to think of progression as a very close relation of overload. Overload refers to the stress of a single session, progression relates to the short, medium and long-term development of an athlete.
3. Recovery. The adaptation to overload occurs during rest periods. When you are pushing your limits you are in the process of breaking down your body.
4. Specificity. This put simply means that you’ll get better at what you do. If you want to improve your swimming, then swim more. If you want to improve your riding, then ride more.
5. Reversibility. This one is easy… Use it or lose it. Failure to regularly adhere to your training program will result in you going backward.
6. Individual Response to Training Stimulus. This is probably where I see the biggest mistakes made by coaches and athletes. Unfortunately, one size does not fit all, so when one athlete has a great response to a training program the temptation is there to try and get everyone to follow the same program.

1. Progression. To improve your level of fitness, you need to gradually increase both the intensity and duration of your physical training routine. According to author Robert Sterling Rush in his book "Enlisted Soldier's Guide," a safe level of progression can be achieved by increasing your cardiorespiratory and muscular ability by about 10 percent every 10 days.
2. Regularity. It's also important to maintain an exercise regimen that is consistent, with exercise taking place at regular intervals. Physical training ideally should take place between three and five times each week.
3. Overload. Overloading, according to the "U.S. Army Fitness Training Handbook," occurs when the work load of your exercise session exceeds the normal demands you place on your body.
4. Variety. It's easy to become bored with physical training if you perform the same routine every time, so it's important to mix things up by breaking up your training routine and include different activities.
5. Recovery. The rest periods between physical training are just as important as the training itself, as muscle damage is repaired and waste is metabolized during these times.
6. Balance. When coordinating a physical training program, it's important to ensure you're exercising all areas of the body equally to achieve a balanced level of fitness.
7. Specificity. The final principal is specificity, which seemingly contradicts the previous principle of balance by advising you focus on a specific ability during training.

1. The basics are principles, not exercises. When many trainers talk about "sticking to the basics," they've usually got a list of certain exercises they're referring to.
2. It's about becoming a stronger athlete, NOT becoming a weightlifter. A great deal of strength training info comes from the powerlifting and Olympic lifting world, meaning it's more geared toward competitive lifters.
3. Maximize functional capacity. Strength training is about building a more coordinated body that's more capable of producing, reducing, and controlling force in order to better perform a variety of movements, and be more resistant to injury when doing so.
4. Take a mixed-training approach. A program needs to incorporate compound exercises, cross-body exercises and isolation exercises. Why? Because each offer different benefits.
5. Think of how exercises put force across joints and tissues. We get stronger by creating mechanical tension across tissues and joints by overloading them through movements, which we call resistance exercises.
6. Use isolation exercises to train in ranges missed by multi-joint exercises. When it comes to the goal of increasing your overall strength and functional capacity, the smarter way to use isolation exercises is to train in ranges of motion and movements missed by the multi-joint (compound and cross-body) exercises.
7. Minimize redundancy, maximize efficiency. Doing a different exercise variation for a given movement pattern or muscle group doesn't necessarily put force across tissues and joints (strengthen you) in a different manner.
8. Train movements AND muscles! Strength and conditioning has gone from viewing muscles purely in isolation to recognizing more integrated movement patterns that show how these muscles create coordinated movement.
9. Build full range strength. We now know that some strength exercises only train the mid to shortened ranges of motion, while others mainly train the mid to lengthened range.
10. Fit exercises to individuals, not individuals to exercises. No single exercise variation is a perfect fit for every body. This should be obvious given the natural variation in the ways people move.

1. Balance. Critics of popular diets frequently claim that such diets encourage unbalanced eating by declaring certain foods and even whole food groups off-limits.
2. Nutrient Timing. A spate of recent research has shown that when we eat is almost as important as what we eat with respect to optimizing our body composition.
3. Self-Monitoring. Research has shown that simply paying attention to what you eat is one of the more effective ways to reduce your caloric intake. Self-monitoring strategies are a key habit among members of the National Weight Control Registry, a research pool comprising several thousand men and women who have lost an average of 66 pounds apiece and kept the weight off an average of 6 years.
4. Selective Restrictions. Just about every popular diet has a “forbidden foods” list. The specific foods and food types that make the list and how strictly they are forbidden differ from one program to the next.
5. Low Caloric Density. The concept of caloric density, or energy density, refers to the number of calories per unit volume in a given food. A food that packs a lot of calories in a small area is said to have high caloric density.
6. Consistency. Healthy eating is not like a vaccine: one shot and you’re covered for life. Instead it requires a daily, lifelong commitment. There is growing evidence that the more consistent you are in your wholesome eating habits, the greater your chances of maintaining a healthy body weight.
7. Motivation. Why are some dieters able to maintain their healthy new lifestyle indefinitely while most others peter out after a few weeks or months? This is currently one of the hottest questions in weight loss research.

1. Specificity. The stresses that are applied to the body in training must be the same as those experienced in your chosen sport or adventure. For example, if you’re planning to really get into walking or cycling and only have a limited amount of time to train, then you must spend time on those disciplines and not on other sports like squash or tennis.
2. Individualisation. This is a crucial principle, the fundamental fact that everyone is different! Everyone responds to training in a different way. If you are walking or cycling with a friend, and doing exactly the same amount of training, don’t be concerned if one of you gets fitter faster than the other – this is what individualisation is all about.
3. Progression. This is all about the need to gradually increase the workload that you put your body through. It is essential to combine training and rest whilst at the same time increasing the stress that the body is put through.
4. Overload. Overtraining is a very common problem and comes about when you don’t get enough rest during your training schedule. This should not be confused with overload which is the planned exposure to an increased workload and the right amount of rest between each session.

1. Master your body. It’s not about how much you can lift, but whether you can move and control your own bodyweight in the first place.
2. Progressive overload does not discriminate. It does not matter if you lift iron or your own bodyweight ; for the same weight lifted (or equivalent mechanical disadvantage) your strength gains will be the same!
3. Stay out of the comfort zone. Work on your weaknesses: chances are, you’ve been avoiding certain movements and patterns all your life simply because you weren’t very good at them.
4. Beware of dogma. There are no firm rules when it comes to training, just general parameters from which –as individuals- we are free to stray. Beware of dogmatic approaches, and don’t be scared to experiment and see what works for you.
5. Enjoy it. The best routine is the one you’re going to stick to. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, your will power will only take you so far before you give up.
6. Train movement before muscles. Concern yourself less with aesthetics, and more with the quality of your movement.
7. Take your time. You will max out on your progressions much sooner than you think! Use micro-increments. Stop aiming for instant results, and enjoy the journey.
8. Explore your ROM. A pull up which does not start from a deadhang, and does not finish above the bar is only a half pull up.
9. Move. A pull up is only half a muscle up. When you start linking exercises together, you start to move.
10. Think strong and light. Bear in mind your power-to-weight ratio: it will serve you well in most other sports and activities.
