Hi all,

 

So I've just started working out... I'm in pretty terrible shape, I'm thin but haven't exercised in god only knows how long. While I can run a decent distance, my muscle mass in my upper body is somewhat non-existent. I've noticed that when I'm working out, specifically doing sit-ups or planks, my body becomes really shaky. I tried holding a sit-up position using my ab muscles earlier and it started up pretty quickly.

 

Is this just a sign of weak muscles? Will this go away the more I work out?

 

Thanks everyone.

Short answer is yes it will likely go away the more you work. This sounds like a muscle fatigue response which means you are doing the work. Hold a little passed the shake point then release. The next set  try to hold even longer into the shakes. 

 

I'm talking a count of 1 1000 then 2 1000 then 3 1000 etc.

 

Also would advise not using weights without a spotter.

 

Remmeber progress is progress.

Static holds like planks especially can cause shakiness. It's definitely normal and will improve over time!
