I am new to the forum and I am 23 years old. I had an on and off relationship with lifting during my teen years and haven’t lifted for about 5 or 6 years. Back when I used to lift, my routine was pretty bland and looked something like this:
Every other day
3x5 bench press
3x5 military press
And on the days I didn’t lift, I would do 30 minutes of intense cardio.
Well after losing a lot of mass over the years, my arms and legs don’t match the rest of my body anymore. Parts of my body are still big, but my arms and legs look like tooth picks. And under my doctor’s orders, I have to start lifting again. Not that I mind! So my question is – would it be a bad idea to throw in an arm and leg day on cardio days, or would that be overtraining? And what is your opinion about my old exercise routine?
