Hi (I'm new to this forum and pretty new to gym work too),
I was just wondering what you thought of my workout and whether it is good or bad and what I should keep the same and what I need to change. My target is to lose a lot of the fat around the stomach and my thighs, whilst also gaining muscle especially around my arms and toning my chest more.
Some information about me:
- 15 (16 in about 2 months)
- Been going to the gym about 4-5 times a week for the past month
- 5ft 10
My current workout:
- 10km bike
- 2.5km treadmill
- 2km rowing machine
- 3 x 10 reps on the machine weights such as:
and then a couple of other upper body machine weights and then about 5 machines for my legs
The other thing that I was wondering was whether it was worth buying any supplements to help gain muscle and also lose fat? I've never taken anything like this before, so i'm not sure whether it is a good or bad idea to start using them at my age?
Also, i've noticed quite a big difference from doing that workout roughly 5 times a week for about the past 4 weeks as I have lost quite a bit of fat from my thighs and stomach, although I intend to lose more. I've also increased my strength and gained more muscular arms since I started too and as a rough indicator so you know how strong I am at the moment - I am currently doing 3 x 10 reps on 49kg on the machine chest press.
Hopefully somebody can tell me whether I am going in the right direction or not (and I hope i've posted this in the correct section!).
