    I'm 6' 4'', 190 lb. I used to do 60 pushups/day, 200 situps/day, and 20lb @ 200 reps/day. (did this @ home)

    I stopped working out due to laziness. I recently bought a gym membership and want to startup again. Do you guys have any routines for beginners? :x:

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Archives, or get a sub, get familliar with the movements for a few weeks, and then start a routine, look into christophers routine, max-ot, or some other basic routine.

    Yeah, I wouldn't suggest a program of working up to a 5RM on squats and deadlifts to someone who doesn't even know what deadlifts are
