What is my rountine lacking?
I am hoping to start into a weight routine tomorrow, however I am still not sure if my routine is a good one. I had posted this in the beginners forum, but thought it might be more appropriate to post it in this one.
I am hoping to get some suggestions of the general routine I am looking to set up. As I am starting out I imagine it would be best if I only worked each muscle group once a week. I was thinking of something like this,
Monday: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Thursday: Back, Biceps, Forearms
I have a simple bench with elevating back and dumbbells to work with. I do not have the money or space for more equipment, and am unable to attend a gym. I was looking at the possibility of the following exercises for the corresponding regions.
Chest: Dumbbell Bench Press
Shoulders: Military Press
Triceps: French Press
Back: Lying Dumbbell Rows
Biceps: Dumbbell Curls
Forearms: Wrist Curls
These would be with sets of 3 and reps of 10.
I tend to do curls most every day for my abs. It was suggested to me that I not exclude leg exercises, but I’m not sure what I can do for that with the equipment I have. My main concern is not bulking my legs up any larger than they are.
Any suggestions for my routine would be great.
