So I recently have decided to use the free weights at the gym instead of depending on machines because of the overall benefits but I'm wondering how long should that take?
Yesterday I did lunges, barbell curls, shrugs, dumbell kickbacks, planks and knee-hip raises.
I started out with 20lbs and could only do between 8-16 where I felt like my arms could not take it anymore. I even started shaking! It felt great and now I am SORE everywhere.
It took me about an hour to get all of that done and I tried taking my time and pushing myself with each movement till I could no longer take it, which was less than 15 reps.
Is this right? A friend posted that they spend 3-4 hours lifting and that seems excessive and I'm just wondering if I put in enough time?
