One of the most common mistakes I see people make when they first start working out (or when they return to exercise after a break) is that they want to perform all of the 2.0 level stuff they see on Instagram or at the gym.
They believe that if it doesn't appear to kill you, how can it possibly make you stronger?
However, you must learn to plank before you can burpee; otherwise, you risk injuring yourself or causing bodily imbalances.
Instead, begin by laying a strong foundation, which for my female clients is concentrating on their hips and core, which encompasses your abs and back.
These muscle groups work together to generate the female body's powerhouse, thus any strength-building workout for women should target them both.
