Have you ever noticed that wherever you look on the internet for workout routines everyone is trying to sell you something, but no one seems to want to give their workout routines for free? Well that's until now in this article I am going to give a great good examples of a training routine I have done in the past that I have found really affective. (Ideal for someone just starting out):
Train Monday, Wednesday and Friday taking Tuesday, Thursday and the weekend as rest days, your workout will be the same each day, bear in mind this workout routine is for someone starting out at the gym, you might want to do this for 3-4 weeks just till you get into the swing of things, but it's excellent for getting going and also a good workout routine for losing a bit of excess fat.
Start with a 10 min warm up on any piece of cardio equipment at 60% of your max heart rate, you can work this out by subtracting your age from 220, so for example my age is 25, so 220-25=195 so 195 is my maximum heart rate, so 60% of this is just below 120 this is the heart rate I will try and maintain through the ten minutes of cardio.
Follow this with one set of each of the following.
15 reps seated chest press.
15 reps seated shoulder press.
15 reps seated curls.
15 reps seated triceps press.
15 reps lat pull downs.
15 reps leg curls.
15 reps leg extensions.
Only rest 30 seconds between each set and then immediately follow with another 10 minutes cardio on a machine of your choice, I usually opt for either the treadmill or the cross-trainer.
This training routine should take about 30 minutes and although only short if done right only having short rests between exercises your heart rate should remain raised throughout, this will mean you constantly burn calories throughout the training routine.
