Sounds like a calorie burning workout? Are you trying to loose weight or get stronger?

I'm still aliveeeee!!!!

It wasn't too bad. Just a little burning on the biceps and triceps, but nothing much everywhere else. I will have to increase the weight for the bench press and the squat next time. I've been doing plenty of push-ups and pull ups before today after all, so my body is used to working out.

My breathing was another matter though. I was gasping hard halfway through it. But I still completed the whole thing in 30 min. Most are 8 reps x 3, except the biceps and triceps. Those are 12 reps x 2 with only 30 sec rest in between.

Excellent idea. I agree completely.

S_Couple: might be helpful for you to grab a small notebook or even download an app to help track your reps and sets. It will help you see your improvements over time and let's you log how you feel during your workouts. If you have access to Excel you could even generate your own. It's helpful looking back and seeing actual improvement.

I figured you were, but a lot of people might not know that. The whole "no pain no gain" mantra has some truth when it comes to those in established routines, but too many people breaking in go for that right away. For them, pain means injury, discouragement and failure, and I don't recommend it. When the time is right for "pain", your body will tell you. Minimum 2 months of consistent workouts.

S_Couple: VABeach is 100% right. I was being facetious and definitely believe in the "listen to your body" method of training. Muscular soreness is one thing. But joint or severe pain is not a good thing.

As someone who has been through this many times, here's my advice. Some may disagree....

Overdoing it your first few workouts is the worst thing you can do. It will discourage you from coming back and doing it again. There is a big difference between "feeling it" the next day vs "in pain" the next day. Being in pain the next day will make getting through your next workout very difficult and discouraging.

Go easy your first workout. If you're not "feeling it" the next day, go a little harder the next time. Keep escalating until you're "feeling it" the day after. You'll go up very fast at the beginning.

S_Couple: keep in mind the old USMC nugget - "Pain is Weakness Leaving the Body" or like I tell my son, "That which doesn't kill you will hurt like hell!".

All kidding aside, your body will surprise you with it's ability to adapt. Once you start seeing benefits it all will be worth it. Best of luck and enjoy.

SVC: Excellent! Slow and steady. No rushing and it'll all come back. The waiting is probably the hardest part.
