3. Have someone guide you.
If you have limited knowledge about gaining muscle strength, it would be wonderful if there is someone who can help you with your workout, someone who is more familiar with physical fitness. You can probably discuss your training with a physical fitness instructor. This person can provide you the necessary program for your workout. He can determine the proper exercise for your training, teach you how to avoid certain injuries and can motivate you properly. A professional expert is always the best person to consult.
