FEEL CONFIDENT THAT you know what you do in the gym is often easier said than done.

Whether you’re a newbie fighting the jitters and feelings of intimidation that come with stepping on the weight room floor for the first time or an experienced lifter struggling with one particular sticking point in your training, it’s important to feel that you can ask questions. When you’re confused, worried, or just don’t know exactly what to do next, you should feel empowered to talk to an authoritative source of knowledge to find an answer. Sometimes Google can only get you so far.

Unfortunately, many gym goers have no one reliable to turn to in their moments of need. Sure, you can find the most muscle-bound guy at your gym to chat with or send blind DMs to your favorite fitness influencer hoping for an answer, but you probably won’t get the best, most relevant answers to your questions. You need someone who has more experience than just working for themselves – and hopefully someone who is willing to ask around to make sure you get the best information possible to answer your questions.

This is where we come in. This is #Gains, Explained, the new Men’s Health fitness advice column. The MH fitness team (mainly, Fitness Director Ebenezer Samuel, CSCS and Senior Editor Brett Williams, NASM-CPT) will answer all your questions about the ins and outs of strength training, gym etiquette, how to plan the ideal workout split, and more. We’ll answer everything to the best of our ability—and we’ll make sure to tap into our extensive network of experts, too, so we’re sure to cover all the bases. Check out a quick discussion about the series below.
