  • Just Beginning

    I used to be in good shape. I was 235 and because of getting lazy over the last 2 years, I have gone up to 290 lbs. I just started working out again and the only thing I am sure of is starting out on the recumbant bike and the tread mill. I only know a few excercises to do for each body part and would like to set up daily routines. Does anybody know of any charts or work out segments that I can break down so as not to overwork muscle groups??? I need a solid work out plan to keep my body on track.

    If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.

    I would suggest doing a circuit training regimen, 3 to 4 times a week, for at least two weeks before starting to split your training into different body parts. Just to get your body a lil more toned and ready for more concentrated training.
    As for me? I shall play the game.

        Circuit training is for women and men who tend not to be muscle-minded. If I am you, consult a doctor to see where your levels are blood heart, etc and make sure that you are not following in the others footsteps of pain and discomfort. Secondly, find a plan that YOU CAN STICK TO. Doing circuits or a plan that will kill you the first week is a no no. After that, find a diet that you can manage like #2. Eating is 90% of obtaining a goal. Got it?? Now do it!!!

          Keep in mind you are not locked into these reps and sets, they are just a recommendation/example. For Bodybuilding 6-12 reps are best, for power lifting and Olympic lifting 3-6 reps is best, with some single work also

            I'm not trying to make it super intense, just some general toning up Getting the muscles ready to really kick ass. But for the real deal(whenever your ready) the hoss method looks pretty kickass. I myself, do a three day split about 4 exercises Per muscle group with 5 sets (1 warm up 4 working) each. Reps per set 20,15,12,10,8, sometimes I warmup with 15 and end on 6. Easing into its not a bad idea, jump right in if you wish. I couldnt wait, that's what I ended up doing. Good luck with your training.
