How To Start Gym?
 | 
Faroe Islands FeelsBadMan_ 
Heyo guys, I'd like to start going to gym, already asked all of my friends, nobody is really intrested in this. My question is, how to start this shit alone, like all those gym exercises etc. I'm shy, and I'm scared to talk with random ppl irl (yeah, i'm retarded, i know) btw. Hope anyone would like to help me. Have a nice weekend. Thanks.

headphone + music you dont need to talk to anyone in the gym

Ask for Advice, do not be afraid. People doing gym are generally disciplined. First month try all the machines and do full body workout then search for muscular groups training.
2019-01-25 23:53
Important to ask the gym staff and not random people who exercise.

You can make yourself an idea based on other's advice and try. There are some experienced people that can help. Staff is the best to ask but also you should get an idea from others.
2019-01-25 23:58
Then again even gym staff can give shit advice so don't believe everything they say 100%, always doubt.
2019-01-27 19:04
Absolutely this. 98% of guys will be more than happy to help.. and its better than doing something wrong and either hurting yourself or wasting your time. Just choose the right moment. Like not when they're in the middle of a set or something.
2019-01-26 19:42
Yup people will even tell you themselves if they see you doing something wrong and will help you out

isnt that overkill?
2019-01-27 16:54
No? Why would it be overkill? If you're only working out biceps one day, triceps the next, chest another, back another. Then it's a waste of time and you're giving your muscles so much time to recover (like 6 days to recover if you split everyday into an individual muscle area). This way you get 2 days of recovery for each different workout day + an extra rest day.

This is actually retarded because you're simply not giving your muscles enough time to recover, and 1st time I hear of leg+shoulders day.
2019-01-27 17:38
Gives muscles plenty of time to recover, A bit of shoulders on Leg day is so that you're working out a different part of your arms each day. I don't do quite as much with shoulders on leg day as they are also used in chest day and back day. It's suggested to give 48 hours of recovery, that's what they get. Also the rest day gives an extra day of rest.
2019-01-28 03:52
Waste of time is if you dont give ur muscles enought time to recover as @stuner said. You can read that in many places. Also 6 training days for begginer ?
2019-01-27 18:32
he does give muscles enough time to recover...
2019-01-27 19:02
Like Yoronomo said, I do give my muscles enough time to recover... I don't know what you're talking about. Yes 6 training days for a beginner.
2019-01-28 03:50
Where you have read that begginner who have never stepped in fitness, should train 6 days a week ? If you can show some posts of fitness instructors who have said that ? For a guy who is going for a first time, he should do 1-2 exercises for every body part and 3-4 days for a week. Than after couple weeks he has to change his program.
2019-01-28 08:27
Didn't read it anywhere, however I have read that Back & Biceps Chest & Triceps Leg & Shoulders is a great routine If you need more breaks then that's fine, take more breaks, but when I started going to the gym I went straight in for 6 days a week and I'm perfectly fine. If anything my legs were destroyed for a couple of days, but it's nothing that willpower cannot overcome. With this routine you notice big changes pretty quick, I've only been going for around 2 months + eating more and I've gained 6 kilo's and my arms are a lot bigger than they previously were. Edit: Also 2 days of rest is plenty for your muscles, maybe the first week you will struggle but then just don't go as hard if you're dead first week. Your body will get used to it very fast. However, I understand it might also be a genetic thing, from my experience my body got used to it after the first week and I did hardly any exercise before hand.

i trained 2 months with longer rests and gained 10kg and my whole body got significantly bigger
2019-01-28 10:03
Well hit me up with that routine, I'm not here saying I'm an expert, just defending the routine I'm currently on as people think it's harder than it is. I wanna know your routine cuz fuck I'd change to that and become swoleeeeee. Edit: I'd also like to say, I started Gym on the 11th of December last year, stopped at 23rd (went somewhere, no possible way to gym) started again on the 1st (after losing 5 kg because I starved myself after getting gains from the first 2 weeks :/ ) Then from the 1st to today I have gained 6kg with this routine, so roughly a month.. with bad dieting in the middle (had a rough time and was too sad to eat).

Its just 1 month then my friend so my advice is to try different routines and really observe how your body reacts to it but gaining 6kg in first month isnt really surprising and awesome
2019-01-28 11:04
Yeah, I will soon look at different routines, mainly because my arms have improved a ton but I want bigger forearms (mine are quite skinny even though I've gained so much weight). Yes it is such an awesome feeling, I love not being a spider ahaha.

2019-01-28 15:13
rookie mistake. he never went to the gym, starting with a split is dumb af. every other day a full body workout for at least 1-2 months to get the body accustomed to this shit. everything else is wrong. sorry :)
2019-01-28 10:52
Who never went to the gym ? I jumped right into this routine from the get go and my body became accustomed to it instantly. Everything else is wrong? What routine would you recommend?
2019-01-28 10:55
the OP said he wants to start with gym. which implies he never went to the gym- anyways, it worked for you, fine. but in general you should do at least a couple of months a full body work out every other day or maybe 3 times a week. thats what all personal trainers I have ever worked with told me. I also know guys who studied sport at the university, and they all said the same.
2019-01-28 10:59
Okay fair enough, can you explain to me why the full body workout?? Is this supposed to be a full body workout in order to focus less on specific muscles and therefore not put strain on them as much (so you don't die) Or are you saying that he should be going fucking hard as hell full body and literally have a break down? I literally don't know if you mean to go slower or pop some roids and go all out tank.

Ive started working out with a friend who never went to the gym before and he started doing split and couldnt do properly exercises cause he didnt have enough overall strength and stabilization, grip muscles developped so he had to go low weights to perform exercises correctly which also went to discouragement and so on

2019-01-28 15:19
Oh yeah that's normal. I first went with my two friends too and yeah some workouts I just simply couldn't do. My first couple of times at the gym they just told me not to do them (because I literally couldn't) until the other workouts built up the muscle required to do them. I didn't find it discouraging or anything, but everyone is different so I understand. Secretly I want to pass my friends in terms of strength etc (it keeps me motivated, although I'm also just motivated to improve myself) So if he is competitive like me then I'm sure he'll keep at it!

2019-01-28 15:30
ofc the first option. doing full body on max intensity at the very start of your gym career is suicide :) slow start, increase weight every 2 weeks tops the "hardcore 110% destroy yourself full body workout" is something I do between 2 different workout plans. I change plan every 6 months and in between I do 1 month full body in beast mode. this shocks the system and is really important imo. but again, for a beginner, I recommend a slow start. the muscles need to get in the groove :) going to the gym is a marathon, not a 100m dash

Just start watching vids on youtube, I often pull out my phone and check the correct form of an exercise I'm doing, not as hard as it seems.
2019-01-27 17:40
I guess literally just set a time and go, you don't have to do anything. Just go and stay there for a while and then do that every week. Eventually you'll get in the habit of going and then it won't be a struggle so you can work out without worrying about procrastinating or skipping a few days. It also helps if you have a personal trainer.
2019-01-26 07:52

Just do it. And you don't have to talk to other people in gym because everybody is (usually) focused on their own workout routine.

look up a fullbody routine online, show it to a trainer at your gym and let him teach you how to properly do the exercises. do that for a month or two and then start doing a split routine that's it

you dont need to talk to anybody at the gym and definitely dont follow shit advice about asking people to film you and other shit in previous comments how to start? if you want to put on muscle, you want to do big compound lifts (overhead press, bench press, squat, deadlift etc). form is important so you dont hurt urself so go on youtube and learn the techniques. and then start doing this program and believe me, you will be very thankful to yourself in the future startingstrength.com/get-started/program.. and please dont use machines cuz its stupid

Why not film? I've been asked to a couple of times and I didn't mind. Some beginners lift heavy with so dangerous form that it's painful to watch.

thats good if you dont mind, but you cant speak for everyone mate. you never know. i agree though, filming is a very good thing to do so you can rate your from and compare it to youtube videos for example asking someone to film you is completely unnecessary though, especially considering that OP clearly stated "I'm shy, and I'm scared to talk with random ppl irl". you can just film yourself, start recording video on your phone, put it on the floor so you can see yourself, go do the lift, stop recording. i do it all the time
2019-01-27 18:47
actually there are much better exercises to put on muscle than those u mentioned. bench press, deadlift and other compound lifts are strength exercises in the first place.

Estonia MC_Ride 
when people go to the gym, generally they either want to get bigger and stronger or lose weight. i meant "put on muscle" as opposed to wanting to lose weight. i disagree though, yes they build strenght like nothing else and allow you to move the most weight but it all comes down to volume. whether you bench 3 sets of 5 or 3 sets of 20 determines if you are training for strenght or training for bigger muscles.

whatever you can do with machines, you can do better and more functionally without machines and with dumbbells or bodyweight. i dont think one should ever use machines, maybe only the cable machine is justifiable

certain other machines are a must like the leg press and the leg extension, the reason I think they are a great option for beginners is because it's guaranteed that you will do the right form, until you eventually get used to it and switch over to free weights.

leg press is a stupid exercise because its like squatting and doing quarter reps - simply an ego lift (wow look how many plates i can move even though im actually weak as fuck!) leg extension have 0 benefits over for example bulgarian split squats. its like you either train only your quads unfunctionally or you train your quads, ass, grip strenght, back, balance and so on functionally yes, with machines you are guarenteed to have right form, but how is that going to help you with free weights? the feeling is completely different, so why not just start with free weights and go lighter, get used to the feeling?

start with swimming or running to get your body ready
2019-01-27 17:00
Start with improving your core strength about 3-4 months. The time will depend on your body type. Then you will move on to the compound movements like squat, barbell bench press etc. And keep in mind that working out is %60 about food, %20 sleep and only %20 about actual training.
2019-01-27 17:02
Well for first week do some cardio and some core body exercises like plank push ups leg rises,then do an all around work out for first 2 weeks with machines like latpull down chest press to get your body and muscles start working better then set your goal u wanna lose weight?or u wanna bulk? u're skinny fat? also set a program I advice u workout 5-6 a week its better for health overall,if u want more advices feel free to msg me I'm also an introvert and im going alone and stuff like that and an Extra tip don't start by going heavy on lift machines try to do the exercises correct and when u do chest press on machine for example Squiz your chest

Get to discover your body first, do some basic exercises like pushups, pullups, planks, get to know your abilities. When I 1st started I asked one of the gym staff for help, he gave me a whole program and teached me a lot about the form of the exercises I was doing, you can do the same. I was scared myself and it won't take you much until you rely on yourself.

If you are scared of Gym there are Apps with a "coach" for exercise at home. Push-ups etc with short tutorials. I start it after quitting gym (needed to drive over 1 hour to it). And it works well. I believe for "newbs" it is better as to start in the gym. because you can learn to focus without pressure and you learn better what helps some muscle more.

*Speaking from experience(1 year of gym,very muscular and i was a little fat and had bad genetics when i started so u can trust me)* 1-being shy won't affect u going to a gym whatsoever, i dont know if Iceland has small gym's, but at least in Portugal there are a lot of big gyms and a lot of small gyms, so for you it will be much better to enter a small one because there won't be that many big dudes, u won't find many people from school and nobody will judge you so u can be chilled while exercising. 2-when u start in the gym you will feel like a quitter a lot, because if u have never entered a gym like myself, there will be many exhausting exercises and you won't like to put small weights while seeing everyone put much more than you so sometimes u will think about going home and quitting but you just need to overcome those feelings and be very strong in your mind. 3-always ask your gym worker/s about the plan and exercises and most importantly if u are doing them correctly because once u start growing muscle u will need a good posture or else u will get a bad shape like those big dudes that have their backs fucked up. 4-don't be afraid of anyone,especially in small gym's because everyone goes there to train and relax, so either u get headphones or just listen to ur gym's music like me ,just respect your gym rules and nobody will bother you and event though sometimes people are arrogant and like to comment your exercise postures(very rare but exists) just say thanks and don't mind it,just ignore it and go back to your world, your best friend in the gym is the gym worker/s, they are very supportive and never be afraid to ask them anything, they work for you because u pay their salary, they are almost always compreensive and respect you all the time. 5-start eating well, i don't know about you but i only started caring about nutrition in the 3th month and that's when i saw the biggest improvement's in my body, the nutrition is the most important thing about muscle growth. U are starting so u don't need to start fixing everyhting, just try to control it, for example try to eat more protein intakes,like meat,peanut butter,beans and carbs intakes,like rice,potatoes,bread, and avoid fat but not at 100% because if u don't want to be those super lean boy's u won't need such a restrictive diet, just try to reduce ,as an example, your daily candy's from 5 to 2 and then u will see ur fat being reduced and ur muscles growing fast,i won a lot of weight when i entered the gym because i got hungry much more often and im not fat, actually the opposite. 6-Never give up, 1 year is enough to get muscular, u just need to go to the gym at least 3 times a week and if u can't go one day,go the next one to compensate. Sorry for the big testimony, nice weekend to you too tho

i just started 2 weeks ago. I'm starting out with Stronglifts 5x5 that's 3 times a week and after 1.5/2 month will change to another program that is 5 times a week. The first step of getting to the gym is definitely the hardest one. Don't give a fuck about others if you're skinny or whatever, everyone there will most likely be listening to music and they're just worried about themselves, not about others. Maybe look for "starting strength programs" and go from there, but don't do them for more than 2 months. I think someone already linked you the Stronglifts 5x5 here already, it's very easy to follow and the workouts are pretty fast, just to get you in the routine. I downloaded a Stronglifts app for my phone so it keeps track of the lifts and weights, super simple. I hope you can get yourself to the gym. Like I said, the first step is the hardest, I put it off for sooo loong.

ask the staff, they will help you with what exercises you have to do and how to properly do them. and even if u dont listen music u dont need to talk to other people, maybe just to ask them how many sets they have left in a machine u want to use

I would recommend you one simple thing, create the habit first. Dont set goals, just go to feel yourself, work a lil bit and get used to going to the place where you train. After a while set some realistic goals and up your level one step at a time. No brain no gain, fuck pain. Enjoy.

I remember my first time, scared as fuck! i was looking like a stick and had no fucking idea what to do, i had 0 confidence but knew i had to do smth with my body. 190cm 70 kg perhaps! Everything is always harder in the beginning, there is soo much info out there on yt these days soo just look around, some machines is idiotproof soo its fine, just go there check the machines out try to learn a excersise from yt everyday and do it in the gym, just see what works for you! But remember once you keep going a couple times a week it will become a routine for you and you will pretty much auto do it, you will feel alot better!

First time, I legit spent 2 hours on the treadmill caus I was too scared to do anything else. Everytime I went, I tried something new and got further to the back of the gym as time went on. People are your friends btw, just don't interrupt when they are in the middle of something.

Headphones and yeah that's it. Watch YouTube, ask some blokes in the gym and train hard. We'd rather see skinny guys in the gym trying than not going
2019-01-28 09:20
Just go
2019-01-28 10:55
Pay for a personal trainer for atleast one month if youre shy. After youre more confident it will be easy to go alone.

If you're not fakeflagging, I think you should be able to find someone to work out with. A lot of people in Iceland work out. I totally get your social anxiety. I have it myself, even though I've been working out for many years. But there are SO many personal fitness instructors on instagram and facebot. Just look it up and they'll provide you with nutrition planning and some exercises and they'll be there with you, working out so you'll not only learn which exercises to do (as i.e. you just look at youtube videos), but also how they're supposed to feel, and when too much is too much. Youtube can't teach you everything.

just do it, the faster u get over it the better it is. i was like 1 year telling myself damn i will go gym good diet get shredded and then 1 year later i still not doing it. but finally did it last winter and went to the gym.

Listen to nike and just do it. Set a date and go for it!

I would do glutes, abs, hamstrings if I could start over as a beginner. If you’re a gamer who sits all day these exercises will help postural problems which you’ve developed as a gAmEr and will be a good foundation before you try the “harder” workouts.

-Just wear earphones and start working out. -Ask the instructors on what to lift and lifting techniques. Or just watch it online. -Start with lightweights. You don't wanna feature in the next episode of Gym Fails trying to take on those heavy weights early on. Know your limit. -Always stretch. Dont go right into it. Stretch, do some HIIT to get your muscles going. I personally do two sets of: 15x pushups, 10x pullups, 20x squats 20x crunches befoer I hit the weights. -Do atleast 1 hour of Lifting + HIIT atleast 3 times a week. -Target one muscle group per day- Chest, Back, Shoulder, Arms and Legs. Go into compound body workout once you get the hang of it and you can push yourself. Don't give up :)
