After spending almost a year as a couch potato, finally I'm back to training. Unfortunately I found out that a year of laziness takes alot from a person. So I've been trying to design a workout routine with my limited knowledge... while trying to pay attention to stuff like push/pull exercises, muscle imbalance, compound exercises etc. Anyway, here's what I got so far. This is a short term workout... to get me in a reasonable shape and strenght. Workout A : Push Ups Horizontal Pull Up Deadlift with DB Lunges V-Up Oblique Crunch Workout B : Hindu Push Ups Chin Up / Pull Up Squats Calf Raise Hanging Leg Raise Side Bend with DB And week would look like : Day 01 - Workout A Day 02 - GPP + Shadow Boxing Day 03 - Rest Day 04 - Workout B Day 05 - GPP + Shadow Boxing Day 06 - Rest Day 07 - Running or swimming when available. My goal at the moment is getting some of my strength and endurance back and hopefully losing some fat along the way. I'm planning to start using DB's for exercises like squats, lunges etc once it starts to feel easy. Now to the questions... - Is this a balanced workout routine? Should I go 3 days of workout X and 1 day of GPP instead? - Should I do it as circuit, or supersets ? - Are hindus or divebombers considered as horizontal push? Or should I go with Dips or some other exercise? - Any suggestions? ps: Training log section looked like the proper place to post this. Sorry if I was mistaken. This will eventually turn into a training log though.
