How to get back into the groove of working out

Fitness guru explains how to get back into the groove of working out


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Sometimes the hardest part of working out is simply getting started.

On Friday, Blake Denny, owner of Unlimited Training Systems, spoke on Good Morning Tennessee about some ways people can get back into the groove of working out.

But before getting started, you should always contact your physician and take note of any prior injuries.

Denny says the easiest way to transition from doing nothing to getting involved in a workout program is by simply getting started, no matter how basic the moves.

"I talk to people about learning the basic movements and learning to master them and just start with one or two times per week. Coming in, feeling out how your body moves, and finding out one, where your mobile or immobile, and if you can get through a program safely.  And then build from that, workout to workout, week to week, and hopefully get stronger every single workout," said Denny about his program at Unlimited Training Systems.

Also, Denny says to remember quality trumps quantity every time.

He has some additional tips for when you actually hit the gym:

  • Start with four non-competing exercises and do two to three sets of each, focusing on form and getting stronger with two workouts per week.
  • Keep workouts between 30 and 50 minutes.
  • Add five to 15 intervals on off days one time per week, working up to two days if recovering well.
  • Once your strength levels increase, add in a day of metabolic circuit training.
