Personal Training Tips For Women

Personal Training Tips For Women.

 

At 121personaltraining.com, we have over fifteen years experience in helping women to get in great shape.

We help female clients with weight loss and physique transformation, and to get in shape for events such as weddings.

Here are our top personal training tips for women:

 

Start weight training.

Nothing will build muscle, burn fat, boost metabolism and transform your physique as well as a progressive weight training routine.  We’re not talking about turning you into the Incredible Hulk, we’re talking about turning you into a lean, strong fat burning machine!

 

Focus on the big lifts and movements.

Exercises such as squats, deadlifts, cleans, lunges, rows, press ups, overhead presses and dips will get you the best results in the least amount of time, so make sure you are doing them in your personal training sessions.  Your body won’t change unless you give it a reason to change!

 

Keep your PT sessions high tempo.

Women have a greater human growth hormone (HGH) response than men, so take advantage of this and amplify the fat burning and muscle building properties of HGH by keeping the tempo high during personal training.  Use moderately heavy weight, medium to high rep ranges and shortish rest periods, and include complexes and circuit training .

 

Forget about body part splits.

Don’t try to train like a male bodybuilder (legs one day, back the next day, chest another day etc) but rather hit multiple muscle groups in the same workout.  Women tend to recover from lower body work much faster than men, so take advantage of this and either train legs as part of every workout, or alternate your PT session between upper body and lower body.

 

Train abs every workout – but not to excess!

The abdominals are endurance muscles and generally work well when trained quite frequently with fairly high reps.  There’s no need to be the girl doing twenty rounds of fifty crunches though – 3-4 sets of 15-25 reps of stomach work per session is fine for good results in almost all beginners and intermediate trainees.

 

So now you know our top personal training tips for women!

We provide 7 days a week personal training for women (and also for men and couples) in SW London.
