n00b question

ok guys, sorry for the stupid question, but I"m just starting to get back into some very basic stuff (some push-ups, squats, sit-ups, free wights.

anyways, the question is, what kind of interval between sessions should I use? every 2nd day? if I'm still somewhat sore should I go anyways? or will I do more harm than good?

Work another body part........ other than the one that you worked the day bafore. Rest is always important. However I lift 5-6 time a week. After you get your routine down and your body starts to get used to the workout you will not be sore anymore.

I typically recommend that people either just starting out, or starting after a long break do three full body workouts per week. Typically, it's a 45 minute session of weights, and you can add in cardio beforehand for warming up and afterwards for burning the fat and then cool down.


Usually, it's something along these lines:

5 minute cardio warm-up

1) Cruches superset with Reverse Crunch
2) Flat Bench Press triset with Seated Cable Rows and Dumbbell pullovers
3) Squats superset with Stiff leg Deadlifts
4) Calf raises
5) EZ-Bar Bicep curls superset with Laying French Press (Skullcrushers)

20 minutes of semi-difficult cardio to help burn fat and then 5 minutes to cool down.


Usually, a new person to working out can show good success on this routine for about 8 weeks. Again, this is a 3 time per week workout, such as M-W-F that you do the full thing.

If you're sore as in you can barely walk because of muscle soreness from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), then still workout but lightly. You want that blood to flow to help yourself recover.

Reverse crunch is just like a regular crunch, only instead of using your abs to raise your torso, you're using your abs to curl you legs/hips up.
