I always struggle with what to do in the gym, so I often just end up doing a few things half heartedly on the machines - chest press, shoulder press etc.
I'm looking for exercises to include in the weights bit of my workout - which is about 20 - 30 minutes - things that are easy to keep track of.
What do you guys do in the gym for strength training? I'm looking to put on muscle or at least not lose it while I'm losing weight.
I've read a few things but am wondering what others on here do.
Here's my routine - I've been doing it for a week:
- 30 mins running Intervals - 5min warm up - (30s sprint - 90s recover) x 10 - 5min cool down.
- 20 - 30 minutes weights
- 10 mins steady state cardio (rowing / stair master / walking etc.)
I'm thinking of something like this:
2x8 dumbell rows
2x8 dumbell curls
some sort of tricep
60s - crunches
2x8 dumbell shoulder press
2x8 dumbell bench press
some sort of pull exercise
