Motivation strikes.

You’ve got a high school reunion and your old high school sweetheart will be there so you want to get a more jacked look. Vacation is on the horizon and you don’t want to feel sloppy on the beach this time around. You just got engaged and weren’t happy with what you saw the first time you decided to go dress shopping. The clock has struck midnight and it’s a New Year – so it’s time for change. Any of these scenarios starting to resonate? You head to google to find a workout routine – there’s tons of them out there. You settle on one you decide you like the most for whatever reason and you plan to begin it tomorrow. But… how do you know it’s going to give you the results you want?

A lot of the programs are going to be fairly easy to understand since they’re text based. Not many coaches are going to go too in-depth for programs they write for the web since they’ll be for a more general beginner audience.

Online workouts also give you the ability to start something without too big of a barrier so you can begin experimenting and gathering information on what other resources can be used to help you accomplish your goal.

And, since you’re likely new to exercise, you’ll be able to see what is known as “newbie gains” simply by starting a workout routine even if it’s not exactly an optimal training split for your specific needs.

So, to sum up the benefits of the workout routines you’ll find online:

  • Most are going to be free. (All of ours are.)
  • Most are going to be written by some of the industry’s best coaches.
  • Most are going to come with instructional videos for the exercises.
  • They give you something that can be started immediately provided you’re healthy.
  • Nearly any workout routine is going to provide benefit to healthy beginners.
