Why Should Beginners Do Full-Body Training?

The main goal of training for beginners is to learn how to control their muscles to perform movement patterns. Beginners need to learn how to control their muscles to perform better movement patterns. This is called motor control and can be seen as the main goal for beginning fitness lovers. Full-body training is the best way to develop motor control as it allows beginners to train the same movement patterns multiple times a week.

DEFINITION full-body

A full-body workout already reveals what it means: a workout that aims to hit all the major muscle groups in one single session. Popular programs would include exercises for back, legs, chest, shoulders, arms and core.

EXAMPLE: full-body

Perform each exercise 3 times with 8 – 10 reps and 30 – 60 seconds rest:

Keep in mind that equipment is needed for these exercises. The equipment does not have to be expensive but to see progress it is almost necessary to use workout material.

1 | saves you time

If you would do a couple of full-body workouts per week, your training frequency will naturally descend. This will save time as it reduces your daily time planned out for a workout. To keep the time down further, you can also reduce the time between sets and keep your sets to three per exercise.

3 | focuses your training

Full-body workouts remind you to think about what is essential to your fitness goals. Picking just a few exercises for your whole body means you will have to cut a lot of extraneous movements, such as many isolation exercises, in favour of bigger, compound movements that hit multiple muscle groups at once.

2 | stimulates more muscle

With targeting more muscle groups at once, your body is getting greater worth when it comes to muscle stimulation. Performing big compound movements multiple times a week means you’ll be stimulating more muscle fibres. Keep in mind that as taking enough post-workout nutrition and getting enough rest is important.

4 | provides more recovery time

Hitting more body parts at once means your training frequency will descend, which gives your body more time for rest/recovery before continuing with a new session. Depending on how you structure your workouts, you might do 2/3 full body sessions per week. The additional time is recovery time to help your body grow.
