I’ve been training for the first time in about 6 years for the last 3 weeks. I’ve lost 9lbs so far down to 191lbs now total, at 5’8. Starting to get a faint outline of abs for the first time in years.
Training I’m having to train from home, I work from home, so I don’t really get a chance to get out much with my other responsibilities. It’s a big part of the reason I’m getting back in to this, I just hate most other forms of exercise and I’ve been sat on my ass for far to long.
I’ve invested in a number of dumbbells ranging from 30lbs > 75lbs. I had to buy singular ones otherwise it’d of got pretty expensive. So I’m training unilaterally at the moment, if I can actually stick to this I’ve made a promise to myself that I’ll buy a power rack + olympic weight set for my garage.
So all in all pretty good, the only thing is I’ve never trained unilaterally before and I have no idea if my lifts at the moment are poor or not.
Pretty much doing straight sets at the moment, linearly progressing session on session with 6 reps, then 8 reps, then 10 reps before increasing the weight.
I’m currently doing 45lbs for my unilateral dumbbell overhead press, 60lbs for rows, 38lbs for curls, 60lbs for floor presses. Any of these areas stick out as a weak point for a beginner to you guys? I’d like to know which I should be focusing on more than the others so I can train that muscle / lift first.
