If you are someone who is just starting out pumping iron, you do need to be made aware of some facts, and these facts are about all about learning how to pump iron in the right way. First of all, there are some lifts out there, which you should make sure to avoid in the beginning of muscle fitness. There are some lifts that aren’t good for beginners and they are as follows:
1. The cookie-cutter approach to training – Those who have spent lots of time in the gym already know what lifts are good and those that aren’t so good. Therefore, with this being said, one of the most obvious of all lifts which beginners should stay away from until they develop more skill is no other than the cookie-cutter approach to training. These lifts are indeed great and effective. However, for beginners, I would say it’s more important to stay on the right path. Beginners need the right moves to get big and strong. The cookie-cutter is reserved for those who have built some skill.
2. The olympic lift variations – Olympic lift variations demand the most power, muscular coordination, mobility, and much more. It is not a type of lift that newbies should even think about trying. Beginners need more time under the bar to develop these lifts with the aid of more controlled movements. If these lifts are used prematurely, they could lead to one’s firing being thrown off, as well as recruitment patterns.
3. Plyometrics – Plyometrics are very much like Olympic weightlifting. They aren’t something that is recommended for beginners to even attempt to do for themselves. If your body isn’t trained or conditioned to do these lifts, it won’t permit you to have the correct geometry or technique. These lift are reserved for athletes, bodybuilders, and strength trainees only.
4. Unstable surface training – Unstable surface training isn’t good for beginners for a number of reasons. One of these reasons is that it doesn’t allow for training strength sufficiently. If you use an unstable surface for training, you won’t be able to produce the right amount of maximal force against it, and this spells not good training for your muscles.
5. The Kipping Pullup – The Kipping Pullup is a lift that demands it be used by someone who is experienced with weight lifting as opposed to someone who is a novice at it. It is because the Kipping Pullup requires moves that one is skilled at doing. Beginners shouldn’t try this lift for amny reasons. One is to prevent them from going on the wrong track and getting some sort of physical injury.
