Went to the gym this morning for the first time since last year. Before I was going once a week and lifting 90kg on the bench press and 20kg free weights.

Heres what I did today:

10 minutes treadmill (Level 10)
15kg free weights 3 sets of 10
50kg bench press 3 sets of 10
25kg shoulders 2 sets of 10 20kg 1 set
65kg peculator 2 sets of 10 61kg 1 set
2 leg machines 3 sets at 55kg
Rowing machine 750m level 8
10 minutes treadmill (Level 8.5)

See how long it will take me to get back to what I was lifting before, I'll be going 3 times a week now.

Always sooo much harder after you haven't been for a while! Even if you only miss a few visits

Feel ok actually. I'll stick with these weights until they become easy then I'll increase.

I've still being doing some weights and press ups at home but you can't beat the gym for the equipment.

Dumbbells are the way forward though, alot more muscles involved to stabalize them.

we mix it up from week to week

say do normal bench with dumbells and do incline with a bar, and vice versa the next sesion

flys are good as well, their challenging
