    Took the weekend off and didn't workout, and noticed today i was really tired. Plus I pulled a muscle in my neck during the weekend, so i felt uncomfertable. I hope to weight myself this Friday and I expect to lose 2-3 lbs more. Plus I bought an MP3 player to keep myself company at the gym.

    2x10 on 3 chest machines i will write them down tomorrow, 45 lbs on each arm
    3x10 lat pull, 100 lbs
    3x10 leg machine where you sit down and push up with your legs, 180 lbs
    2x10 leg machine that works the top of thighs, haha i need to know the name of these machine, 70 lbs
    20 minutes on the seated bicycle on level 10.

    what kind of routine are you working with here? what kind of diet?

    2 sets of 10 on 3 different chest machines, 3 sets on lats, then leg machines seems all over the place. do you have any previous experience lifting? from the sounds of it (and i'm not knocking you at all) you don't have a lot. you might want to grab a few sessions with a personal trainer, they can outline a good 3 or 4 day split (depending on how often you feel like hitting the gym) and can explain proper form. Injuries are easily preventable.

    read thru the archives, ask questions any questions you might have that arent discussed in whatever is left of the stickies and STICK WITH IT! the gym is a serious addiction for me, pretty soon you will feel shitty if you dont go. my personal advice is to stay away from diet supps right now. clean the hell out of your diet... there are plenty out there (i followed this for a bit, then modified it for my own preferences: http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=473067) that is a reduced carb diet, its not an atkins no carb diet. it is much easier to start and end. the biggest problem ive heard is when people just carb up like a bastard after losing mucho weight on atkins and they just gain it back, plus its not very healthy.

    stick with it and good luck

    I try not to rest that much between machines, I am more trying to do an all around body workout, I don't overwork myself, and I can seem to do the same workout everyday, some more days than others. I really don't want to get big, i don't rest between machines to keep my heart rate up.

    interesting. you are doing the same workout everyday and you want to work your whole body... yet you are neglecting shoulders, abs, obliques, lower back, middle back, and calves. I dont know who told you following a split is going to "get you big" you just need to build muscle. and working the same muslces every day is going to do NOTHING for you

    if you are interested in doing more of a full body workout, do some research and find a good circuit workout you can do 3x a week. cardio all week

    this sounds like its right down your alley

    this is a good resource, too

    feel free to ask any questions and good luck

    Thank you very much. I am going to write down all the machine I do today. That looks like a good plan in the link you posted except the jump rope part.

    I woke up late so I didn't get to eat breakfast. I am hungry right now I think but I am not going to eat. I have not been seeing the progress I want besides getting stronger, but my lower legs and arms are getting a little bit more defined.
