    Finally got back in the gym this week.....I have a LOT of work to do. My upper body isn't worth a damn at this point. Legs are good so far. The last time I was in a gym, I maxed out a seated leg press of 800lbs, which was the highest that the gym went to at the time. Now I'm in a different smaller gym and the seated leg press only goes up to 390. I can still do that without a problem. Found out today I can still squat a minimum of 320lbs on the rack....didn't feel like dragging more 45s over.

    So - here's where I need some advice.

    I'm focusing on cardio to help burn some fat, but I need to work in upper body as well. What do you guys do for upper body? Mind you, I'm not looking to get ripped....just need to get more toned. Should I just stick to weights that are about 20% less than max for now?

    Sorry I should clarify. People saying they don't want to get huge they just want to get "toned" makes me want to poke my thumbs through their eyes like they were two tiny tomatoes.

    Read the stickies there is a good upper body program up there if you cut out the legs.
