manwissW dont worry, i like to do FULL body workout and not split it. So i start with warming up my self then some leg training, then upper body and then core. Well sometimes im too tired to do nice core training but after leg training and upper body training its just normal for my core to be fatigued and not to be at his 100%. There are people who are working out all day and they are still alive and even working out again the next day etc etc almost all year Very Happy and ofc they have a nice progress.

So dont care just do what u like to do and listen to ur body. If u are too tired do less or rest one more day or hit other muscle group.

Hope it helps.

You're definitely not overtraining. If you do get sore, don't worry about it. Just realize that there is a big difference in your muscles being sore from not working them too much in the past and having sharp pain in movements (especially around the joints). I would continue with this exact routine for a few weeks (except I would add some easy leg work such as squats for reps) until this routine is just too easy for you. As a beginner, a lot of the gains you're going to see in repetitions are coming from your body getting more efficient at these moves. Don't mistake that for incredibly quick gains in strength right off the bat. Giving time for your tendons to adapt and get stronger is important, and I personally have seen the best gains just by allowing a period of 2-3 weeks of just easy workouts that weeks before I thought was very difficult. If you're worried about overtraining, remember to progress slowly but surely. That can spare you a lot of pain.

if u have pains , sored etc its good to do a GOOD warm up, and of course after a good cool down with stretches etc. Same goes for ur knee if u want to try to workout legs do a good warm up, start with light work and see how it feels the next day, if u feel much pain or weird pain during the workout , its better to stop , and cool it down,stretch it , ice it etc.

thats fine. when your endurance and strength get higher and you get more used to this, make sure you add more reps or sets, so you dont get your body used to this.
becasuse your beginning dont go too hard

I probably going to stop at 5 sets, and increase only reps after that.

And how should i do warm up for my legs?

Do some jogging, or jogging in place, jumping rope, high knees and some dynamic stretches(legs swinging,circles with knees,or hips or foot (for ankle). Or maybe some burpees, jumping squats , calf raises.


Hope it helps Smile

5 sets should be plenty. I would advise against only increasing reps though. You need to build strength, not just endurance. Once you feel that the exercises you are doing are too easy, make it progressively harder. Change the leverage, add weight with a vest, work on different moves that require strength. You will see an increase in your endurance when you gain strength.

this dude is completely right. also some things to add, half reps ( go to the lower postion, lift half way up and go back down, this are usaully done fast), super setting, pyramids, and many more. you will find plenty of information in the forums Smile

Hello again guys, i wanted to ask it sooner, but i kinda forgot, as u noticed my pushup count is quite low because i'm doing them using something like this http://www.google.lt/imgres?q=pushups&um=1&hl=lt&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:lt:official&tbm=isch&tbnid=qok019XZNyh9rM:&imgrefurl=http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/9613067/Push_Up_Pro_Strengthens_Tones.html&docid=q1eKlwOjsruR2M&w=795&h=722&ei=3xlFTtCeJ5HEsgbBypilBw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=166&vpy=268&dur=235&hovh=214&hovw=236&tx=155&ty=124&page=4&tbnh=134&tbnw=127&start=57&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:57&biw=1366&bih=596

without this i can do way more pushups, but i heard this thing saves wrists, so should i do less pushups with this thing or start to make normal pushups without equipment?

Thanks
