But I do want some level of strength. Can a person get away with just 4 exercises and not develop some awful imbalances or something.
Here is what I have started to do.
Push press or bench press (alternating workouts)
Squats or deadlifts (alternating workouts)
pulldowns or rows (alternating workouts)
Plus I do abs and lower back. That does not take me too long so I get out of the gym relatively quick. Do I need to make some changes to optimize what I am doing.
As for results, I have gone from 218 to 201 doing this. Am I screwing myself up? (in terms of injury risk and such)
