Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
ok so basically, i just wanna know what are some exact free weight routines that would be good to get into lifting? yes, I know about the fitness thread, but I don't have the option right now for a gym. Yes, it sucks to have to lower oneself to the lowly nature of free weights, but it's all I got. I'm not looking for phenominal results, I'm just looking to start my lifting routines. And yes, I also know that lifting wrong will develop bad habbits, that using free weights are a good way to develop bad habits...etc.
I know that you wanna work 1 muscle group or 2 groups per day, but, for example: what does "work the arms one day" really mean? Does this mean to only do bicep curls? or does it mean to do curls, plus triceps, etc.? as in, do you work all of the arm muscles in one day? and if so, do you work another group in the same day?
-how many reps per set should be done per day, per set?
-how many sets per day?
-should I add in running? if so, before, or after weights? or on different days?
-what are generally accepted workouts for the abdominals and back?
-how can I determine how much weight is too much weight to be lifting, with say for example, a bicep curl?
I have some basic knowledge, but not nearly enough on anything really an I'm just looking for a good place to start. If I can get answers to all of those questions that would be pretty damn awesome.
