Plus Size Fitness: How to Get Confident at the Gym and Workout
If you’re new to strength training, you might get overwhelmed with all of the machines at the gym. You may even walk right back out after realizing everyone around you pretty much looks like a pro. That’s exactly what I did (LOL, seriously). That was because I didn’t know what I was doing, lacked confidence, and didn’t want to be the big girl looking like an idiot at the gym.
If you feel this way, trust me when I say this, you are not alone. The good news is there are a few things you can do that can help you get over any fear and anxiety at the gym.
Strength training is very important to any workout routine, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. My friend Sarah is very passionate and knowledgeable about this subject, so I’ve decided to pick her brain a bit. She’s sharing four strength training exercises you can start adding into your workout routine TODAY.
The goal of this video is to slowly add strength training into your workout routine, have a game plan when going to the gym, and perfect your form before adding intensity or other strength training exercises. By doing this, you’ll be more confident and have no fear with working out at the gym.
In this video Sarah shows you how to do Dumbbell Squats, Dumbbell Strict Press, Hollow Holds, and Dumbbell Dead Lifts. I’m going to show you an easier option of each workout for anyone who’s more of a beginner.
I hope this video was helpful and hope you gained at least one thing from it!
