so i workout on my own 3 days a week. decided to do starting strength two weeks ago since my program was just too much. anyway im liking the program a lot. for my diet i eat 4000 calories a day. i just eat anything really. i just want to get stronger
my problem is. i am taking a required fitness class at my college. i have class 2 days a week. we are required to do a form of cardio for 20 minutes, and a form of weight lifting. professor makes us use 10 machines(yes machines weights) the weight lifting routine is 2x of 10 on every machine and thats it. i never even lift heavy in class. for most of the machines like the overhead press or leg extension i just keep the weight at 80lbs of leg extension and 50 for overhead. i try not to even break a sweat. for the cardio aspect of the class i just go on the stationary bike and ride it. i don’t workout to hard not really trying to break a sweat.
will this class affect my strength gains from starting strength. i usually workout on mondays wednesdays and fridays. i have the class on tuesdays and thursdays.
also new prs for my lifts
Bench:135(hopefully can do 140 by the end of this week)
squat:175(might be able to do more but don’t want bad squat form)
overhead:85lbs(goal is to do 135 one day)
deadlift:above 165. not sure because i was able to do 5 reps of 165. probably 180 is my max.
