I am 5 10, 210 lbs.; work out at 5 in the morning every other day. I have been doing total body workouts.
Decline dumdbell press(10 reps), Machine row (same) x3
Hack squat, rest x3
Incline Dumbbell press, pulldowns or assisted pullup x3
Leg extension, leg curl x3
reverse tricep pulldowns, preacher curl x3
I try to eat healthy, but often can not get meals pre-made (work in rural, so franchises screw me(or maybe I screw my self)). I have been reading articles and discussions for the last year. I have read that muscle; stimulates fat loss, and hormones that help with building more muscle.
Also, I’ve read that complex lifts are better for beginners than Isolates. However, I am not versed with many of the complex lifts that are recommend, and hold to the belief that proper form gives results, and the adverse only hurts you. I am limited by the experience that most “Personal Trainers” do not really know what they are doing.
So What works best: full body or units; strength or fatloss; is there a program that works for those of us who are “big boned”(cartman); and how do you find someone to teach you proper technique (and is not a quack).
I would like to finish this by thanking First: Those who are willing to share their knowledge; and secondly, those who take the time subsidize the articles.
