Hi everyone! I have a question about improving my workouts. I've been doing only cardio on an elliptical so far for the last 6 weeks about 35 minutes 4-5 days a week. I push myself a lot in my workouts so I would definately consider it high intensity. I do have past experience with lifting weights but I never kept it long enough to turn it into a routine. Now that I've gotten into the habit of getting to the gym I'd like to add in weights again.
I guess my main question is, is 3 days a week of weight training enough to start with for a few months? I was thinking of doing it body for life style. Upper body 1 day, then lower body the next, etc., pushing myself harder in each workout. I want to use free weights and also do some core strengthening as well. What do you all think? I have the body for life book also a gold's gym encyclopedia to weight lifting and of course the good ol' internet to look up exercises. Thanks everyone!
