4. Now move onto next goal on your card and repeat steps two and three above. Do this until you've decided on your specific routine.
Again, write exercises down.
5. How many repetitions do you need to do? How many sets should you perform?
This depends on your goals. If it's to lose weight, then keep weights light, but heavy enough to provide adequate resistance. If you choose to build muscle, then decide how much muscle you want to build. Then you would choose heavier weights and fewer reps.
If you're not sure how much weight to use, reps to do or sets to perform... then seek advice of a professional.
6. Time to choose how often you need to train. If you building bigger muscle, you may need to break your training regime into two to three parts. In other words...
You may decide to work chest, back and legs on day 1. Then shoulders, biceps and triceps on day 2. Then rest on day 3.
Or are you looking to lose weight?
Then you may choose to perform a total body workout on day 1 and rest on day 2. You may wish to add in some aerobical workout routine as this will help burn off excessive calories much more quickly.
Just make sure that it's appropriate for your goal.
7. What about your diet?
Decide what foods are right for you and your goals. Are you looking to lose weight?
Then eat less, but consume more healthy food with low fat and calories. Decide how often to eat.
Looking to gain weight?
Then eat more. Also choose better foods that can help with weight gain, while they are healthy at same time. Look for decent whole foods. Decide if supplements are necessary.
8. Make sure that you've written everything down. Review it and see if you've left anything out.
Now you have DO key done. You are at point where you have structured your training program to help you get your goals. In other words...
You now have two of three keys:
