I just started a week ago and my body feels like it was hit by a truck.Ive just started so im only doing light weights right now and some basic chest and stomach excercies.I hope to carry it on for another 6-7 months to get into shape n all.
So any other people here who go to gym regularly
or have a 24 inch bicep?
i was a regular gym goer but the last few months i have let myself go a wee bit, however i am getting back into the groove again. due to my work pattern (4 days on, 4 days off) i struggle to get continuity. what i have started doing is cycling to work (about 20 miles a day) and trying to go to the gym on my days off(except a friday when i play football).
it really depends on what you are aiming for really, but a good gym instructor will help you out. for toning try a body-pump class as well, its absolute murder to begin with and wont bulk you up but will really strengthen all your muscles. i have also recently tried yoga(anyone laughs they go on holiday)and it really helps, i have found a big difference when i play football from yoga, i can turn faster and have better balance.
lastly try mens health, http://www.menshealth.co.uk/

gonna make this sticky as lots of folk could share their advice here
