Good Workout Routine for Beginners
Starting to exercise and workout on a daily basis is a big life decision, and a great one at that. You are making the commitment to living a healthier life. Diet and exercise are the two key components of changing your body composition and level of physical and mental health. You need these two things in your life if you want to live a full, meaningful life where you are able to accomplish everything you want to accomplish.
Starting out can be difficult, but just know that taking the first steps is the hardest part! Once you get in a good rhthym, and start seeing changes to your body and how you feel everyday, you will become addicted, wanting more and more. And in the case of diet and exercise, addiction is actually a good thing.
But where do you start? Do you go by workout routines posted on social media by amatuers? Or do you scower the internet searching for the perfect workout for beginners like yourself?
I suggest the latter.
BassFit.com was created for EDM lovers (and future EDM lovers) from all different levels of fitness. We want to include everybody in the EDM culture, whether you are a ripped, bodybuilding, kettlebell swinging freak, or just a regular guy or girl trying to lose some stubborn belly fat.
Our best advice for beginners, start simple. Don’t try to jump all in and overdo it. You need to take one baby step at a time, and trust me, it will take time. But that is why we are here! To make your journey FUN, and to supply you with the knowledge and the tunes to reach your fitness goals.
This workout, targeted directly at beginners like you, keeps it simple, touches the bases, and will give you the momentum you need to jump into more advanced techniques later in your fitness journey.
1. The Warmup
-Static stretches for 5 minutes

As you can see, this is a very simple full body workout for beginners. When you are first starting out, you do not want to use very many machines. FREE WEIGHTS BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT FASTER. This is a fact. Your muscles have to work more when using free weights, which causes more stress, which in turn, causes more growth.
If you stick to this workout for a month or two, you should be seeing results and learning the correct form for the basic movements. Once you have gotten good enough at these basic exercises, you can move on to more advanced movements, such as exercises found here.
