Well I'm a newcomer to lifting, I'm 6'1, 145 lbs right now, I'm planning to get to 160 by spring.
I'm getting a membership at a gym tomorrow and planning on doing:
Monday: Cardio (20 minutes on the treadmill, 7 mph)
Tuesday: lift (arms)
Wednesday: Cardio (treadmill)
Thursday: lift (shoulders and back)
Friday: Cardio (treadmill)
Saturday: lift (arms)
First off, is that too much or too light for someone like me?
2nd, I don't really know specifically what type of workout I should be doing
ex; I don't know what machines to use, like I have no idea what a "Barbell row" is, etc from workouts logs posted on this site.
The thing is, I'm a Freshman at college, don't have the money or time to get that serious into it.
A gym membership typically will include a couple of sessions with a trainer. If you don't even know what a barbell row is ...
you really need someone with you showing you how to do this. IMO
i am just about into my final year of high school (final year feb 08-nov 08) and time and money are often not on my side, but this year i have worked hard and even in the times when i lacked time and money i still made some pretty good gains, so just keep at it no matter how hard the times get... i noticed you dont do any leg workouts (other than cardio) and chest... you need to work every single part... but yes go and see a personal trainer...
