Hi wonderful 3FC'ers :) I'm wondering if I could pick your wonderful minds for feedback on my strength training regimen. I've tried to put together something that targets all of the major muscle groups, but I know I'm a couple of exercises short. Other than that, I'm wondering if there is anything else that would be important to take into consideration? Thank you.

- I strength train 3 x per week (at most every other day)
- Each exercise consists of 2 sets of 12 repetitions

The order I exercise in:

- Seated back row, 60lbs
- Leg Press - 235lbs
- Hamstring curl - 75lbs
- Chest Press - 20lb dumbell/arm
- Seated Shoulder Press - 15lbs dumbell/arm
- Standing Biceps curl - 12.5 lbs dumbell/arm
- Lying down triceps extension - 12.5lbs dumbell/arm for 1 set, 10lbs dumbell/arm for the second set

I also do daily cardio, and I stretch after each workout as well. Thank you. :)

Stop using the machines and start using freeweights.

You're MUCH better off doing squats, deadlifts, and lunges than the hamstring curl or the leg press. Really.

If you read around this forum you'll find lots of helpful links and advice for putting a free weight regimen together.

Yep, agreed with everything there.
