Are you guys working out multiple muscle groups at one time when you work out or do you just stick with one muscle group per day? I'm asking because I've just started working out with weights and I'm sorta limited to the machines I have. Our gym has 3 machines for shoulders, 2 for the back, 3 for chest, 3 for arms, and 3 for legs along with a cable cross system, dumb bells, squat rack, and some benches.
Keep in mind I'm using these for light weight high reps (20-30 reps for each set)
I only have 4 days to use our gym at work so I figured I'd break each day up into a muscle group doing cardio every day with each muscle group. I was looking at a schedule such as this:
Monday - Cardio (stairs/bike) & chest
Tuesday - Cardio (elipticle/treadmill) & arms
Wednesday - Cardio (bike/elipticle) & shoulders & back
thursday - Cardio (stairs/treadmill) & legs
Friday - cardio (running at home)
Is it more benefitial to combine muscle groups when working out or would a schedule like this work out just fine?
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
