Hey all, rigged up my work bench today, just done my first workout ever, shit I feel good, my legs and arms were twitching abit after the workout, but what a good feeling. Im not to sure if i started off to heavy but I did workout A below, with the weight of 20kgs (44 pounds) for each exercise.
Is this to heavy to start with, should I maybe drop the weights a bit for the first 2 weeks or so. And the (workout A) below only took like a few minutes to do. Is it normal for workouts to be so short. After that I did a bit of cardio. Please advise.
Would it be wise to add Barbell curls for biceps 3x5 and Barbell reverse curls for the forearms to (workout B) or would that be too much for an absolute beginner.
Please be sure to judge my workout below, this is the rippetoes workout programme for beginner, but please feel free to add your knowledge and information.
