My advice to those who are embarking on a new journey to better themselves and to improve their body composition. Whether it be resistance training, weight lifting, weight training, these pointers should help clear a few things up and make it clear what you need to prioritise when you step into the gym and follow the appropriate programming.

To summarise:

- Follow an appreciate programme
- Learn how to engage the muscles and place tension on the working muscles
- Hire a coach or a professional if necessary
- Once you have mastered the art of moving the weight, begin to overload the muscles
- Look to increase training frequency, overall volume and follow a programme incorporating a more advanced approach
- Follow a body part training split which looks to train a muscle group 2 x per week to maximise muscle growth
- Prioritise your weaknesses and change programming when they no longer are a weakness
- Make sure everything you do outside of the gym compliments your training programme.
