Beginner Weight Training Program with Alternating Workouts and Videos

Workout Day A

  1. Squat (quads dominant)
  2. Bench press (horizontal push)
  3. Bent over barbell rows (horizontal pull)

Start with 5 sets of 5 reps. This is to help you build strength and a solid foundation for progressive overloading in the future. After 4-8 weeks, depending on how fast your body adapts/if you meet a plateau, switch it up and do 3 sets of 8 – 10 reps for a focus on muscle size.

**Simply alternate these two workouts with at least one day of rest in between.

An example:

Week 1: A, B, A

Week 2: B, A, B

Workout Day B

  1. Deadlift (hip/ham dominant)
  2. Military press (vertical push)
  3. Pull ups (vertical pull)

Start with 5 sets of 5 reps. This is to help you build strength and a solid foundation for progressive overloading in the future. After 4-8 weeks, depending on how fast your body adapts/if you meet a plateau, switch it up and do 3 sets of 8 – 10 reps for a focus on muscle size.

**Simply alternate these two workouts with at least one day of rest in between.

  1. Workout works only if you do it in regular basics. If you do it regular basics than you will be in good shape, or your body active.
