Looking for workout buddies and folks to compare notes with. I started on Monday and have 2 official workouts under my belt! In workout A, I screwed up the step-ups and I forgot to do a set of crunches in workout B, but I'm still sore and feeling good.
I'm excited to see what happens and I'm committing to 3X/week.
Anyone else start recently? How are you feeling? What questions/concerns do you have? My biggest question is about cardio. How much is enough to lose weight, etc. I recently started using myfitness plan (2 months ago) and lost 15 lbs (35 to go); so my goal is to maintain muscle and shed fat. I have yo yo'd over the years and mostly focused on lots and lots of cardio. I've dabbled with weights over the years, but never seriously focused on it. I figured it was time to try something new. So here I am.
Also curious as to what weights folks started with. I didn't want to go too light (I'm used to doing 8-10 lb weights only), but then I didn't want to get too crazy out of the gate and injure myself. I chose 25 lbs for the deadlift, 45 for the barbell squat, and 12.5 for my shoulder presses.
