Yes, I consulted the stickies. I just finished college for the year and have 4+ months off. I want to gain overall strength/mass and am looking for help with developing a weekly routine. I just joined a community-center gym that opened (running-distance from me is a plus!) and am looking to take full-advantage of it. After looking over some of the link-outs in the stickies, I'm overwhelmed. Example: catalogue of core exercises. There's ~40 there and if there's something I know not to do, it's a whole bunch of everything (which unfortunately I have been doing). I'd much rather stick to a select few, efficient work-outs and develop good form (ie: squats, deadlifts, bench press). The gym is usually pretty empty (which is good, I know) but this could be problematic with exercises that require assistance. Please keep that in mind. My buddy joined with me as well but he's lazy and makes excuses not to go.. so relying on him to regularely spot me is out of the question. I can hit the gym 3-4 times a week, but no more than that as I don't wanna burn myself out (I have Karate 3x a week as well). Any help would be much appreciated. Please don't use abbreviations as I'm not familiar with much S&P terminology. Thanks.
