Get Strong With These Easy Yet Very Effective Exercises

Performing exercises can be a daunting task. Feeling overwhelmed by all of the options can lead to doing nothing. However, some basic exercises that you can implement may have great benefits. Once you choose the exercise follow these tips:

Your speed of movement should be slow and controlled. I recommend a tempo count to "6" as you lift the weight and trying to slow down the return to about an "8" count.

Pause in between each phase, proving you can control the resistance.

Moving at this pace will require you to choose a lower load, and perhaps even no resistance. This holds especially true for unaccustomed motions that are new.

Choosing resistance that is appropriate for you to tolerate is key. Over time as you grow more comfortable with the motion & associated sensations you can increase the resistance.
