Hey guys I am 20 Years old, I just began traiining, I eat well and always have, I have always had a good balance of protein, carbs, and fats in my diet.
Anyways Im 5' 10" and about 175 pounds. I just started training and my upper body is extremely week. When I bench press free weights with 2 barbells, I dont know if there is a proper name for this, 20 pounds in each hand will give me a challenge for about 10-12 reps, I could do more but that is lots of work, and for curls 20 pounds in each hand is enough to kill me doing 12 8 and 8 reps. This is very small amount is it not? Oh well maybe it will be easier for me to grow? I know exercises are harder when using 2 barbells but still?
What could you guys lift when you started? I am in decent shap as far as cardio goes, I can run at 6 miles for 45 minutes no problem my joints get sore before i get tired
anyways what could you lift? is that a real small amount?
I dotn even lift weights at the gym I joined I just do cardio there cause im embarresed I just lift weights at home. I only have a couple barbells and a small amount of weight but it challenges me.
