Hey everyone, I’ve been looking to start lifting again and I’m not trying to go back to the routine I did before. I’m n looking for a beginners routine since I’m beginning again only there is so much information out there I don’t know which to choose from. My biggest issue is I only have access to a home gym with free weights, no machines, and a lot of these workouts I’m looking at have machine based exercises in them so that limits me, and it seems like mostly on leg days especially if I want to change up exercises every so often. I’ve seen one member on here posting saying to look at Dan John’s articles.
I was hoping to get some feedback on what you thought of that. Dan John also recommends the Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 program, but again that is asking for leg press. I have a bench, barbell, dumbbells, and an EZ curl bar to work with. Working on getting a pull up bar. I was also thinking if I keep the weight lighting days to a minimum like Dan John’s minimalist training routine to incorporate barbell complexes on off days.
My goal is to lose weight, too much partying bleeding over from the summer into the winter has caused me to pack on some weight. I’m at a loss for what routine would be best for me. Any help is much appreciated.
