-Beginner, THREE, Four week plans.
You are a beginner if:
You have been weight training for less than 6 months.
You are somewhat new to consistent training- the word consistency is key.
Not sporadic random traning, but a well thought out or designed training plan.
Have to focus on form first.
You are not a beginner if:
If you have been training consistently for 6 months or more, that is intelligently and well thought out. AND you have accrued some kind of results.
