Okay, so i was wondering. I’ve been going to the gym for about 2 weeks now. I’ve never really lifted before besides this. I can bench about 10 pounds less than my body weight. Im 17 - 135 pounds - im guessing about 5’7(not too sure about that…maybe a little less?). Im not skinny or anything, i have a medium build. I used to be in boxing so i got most of my muscle from that.
My first question has to do about muscle groups/sets. What are the best ones to work out in the same day at the gym? When i go with my friend its back/bi, chest/tri, legs/abs, a break, then we repeat it. Something close to that. What do you guys suggest working out? I go every day besides once a week( a resting day).
Secondly i was wondering about the potential myth of becoming bulky and the bulkyness restricting the movements of your body. I work out for my own health and protection. I dont want to get big because i want to stay flexible at the most part, but would it still be possible if my muscles continued to get bigger? I stretch alot and during my workouts. I run alot and i jump rope too. Would the cardio workouts basically prevent the restriction of movement from occuring? Can someone set this straight for me? Id like to get into martial arts sooner or later so i dont want this preventing me from performing at a good level.
