So I started going to the gym last week.
I start with 2 miles on the elliptical machine and then do about an hour on the weight machines. I used to hate going to the gym it was such an awful thing when I was younger but now, it is a lot of fun. I meet up with one of my friends from my last job, we chat a little but then get back to work. lol.
What is your routine at the gym?
I mostly just lift, which is itself a great cardio workout. I'm on a 5-day split:
Day 1: Legs
Day 2: Chest
Day 3: Back
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Arms
I do abs at the end of most workouts. Sometimes I do a little cardio at the end.
Sometimes I switch to a 4-day split:
Day 1: Legs
Day 2: Chest/Triceps
Day 3: Back/Biceps
Day 4: Arms
I vary my workouts quite a bit, but generally speaking I start out with compound movements (e.g. bench press, squats, deadlifts, barbell rows) and move into isolation work with dumbbells and sometimes cables.
When I'm cutting, I add in some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), usually tabata intervals with various bodyweight exercises like jump rope, burpees. I will also do low intensity cardio when I have time and add in extra supersets into my lifting routine.
Sorry for the late response! Better late than never I guess haha
