New to the forum and have some basic questions. I’m 41, 6 ft, 180-185 lbs, in fairly good shape (except for those love handles).
Have been working out for quite some time (nothing hard core), but not happy with the results. Varying it every month or so, I have been doing a split then a full-body routine, but now I am doing the following, because I’ve read that recovery time is more important as you get older. However, it just does not feel like enough.
incline db press
close grip bench
db shoulder press
db lateral raise
HIIT - sprint/walk
All are 4x5 with a fairly heavy weight(I workout alone, so can’t push it that much). Is working a muscle group once a week enough? Should I up the reps or sets? I’m not a hard core lifter, just want to add some lean muscle, so please go easy on me. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!!
