So I started at a Gym a few days ago, signed up and had an induction/personal training session the day before yesterday. I was intending to go back today but I'm still feeling it a lot and I don't know how to tell if my body is ready to get back into it, or if I should wait longer. I've never lifted properly before, and I have little to no understanding of how to make the most of my time, the personal trainer guy I spoke to and who showed me some stuff was helpful, but I could tell he was mostly interested in getting me on as a regular client which I don't have the money for. If possible I want to self teach with the help of people from here and online stuff. To start with I want to work on core stregnth and learn how to squat with decent weight without injuring myself, also how to bench press properly would be good. I remember people talking about a specific way you hold your shoulders to avoid injury? Assuming I feel well rested tomorrow I will go back and do another workout, my intention is to build a lighter full body exercise plan I can complete every other day by then, give it a shot and iterate on it as I go on. I'm also open to ideas on how I can best turn this into a goal, also how/when I should work cardio into my plan.
