first off I am 5'11 and weigh 175.36 yrs old.I have lost about 10 lbs over the past couple of months and I wanted to start weight lifting just to get into better shape and to look better of course.I got a Impex home gym and started training 3 days a week M/W/F.After things I have read my workout that I put together is as follows.
Lat pull downs
Flat bench press
Incline bench press
All above are preformed with heavy weights in 2 sets of 8 reps
Standing leg curl 2 sets of 10 reps per leg
ab crunch 2 sets of 25
I know it seems like allot but I can complete a workout in about an hour.
As far as diet.I cut out soda and drink allot of water.cut out chips and candy.I eat animal crackers in the morning have a good lunch and and snack on more animal crackers in the afternoon.And then have a good dinner.I know that I could eat smarter but I cant eat every 2 or 3 hours with my job and all.I have noticed that I am not wanting snacks as much due to the amount of water I am drinking.(I think).I think that maybe a coupe of protein bars throughout the day would do me some good but I don't know?I read allot about doing squats and dead lifts.I don't have any free weights but I'm looking into getting some dumbbells.I guess what I am looking for is just some info so that I can make better choices early on..Like I said I am new to all of this and would like any advise that you can give me...
And please take it easy on the noob...
Thanks in advance.....Cly
