Okay, so I really want to start weightlifting again. It's not necessary to gain a six pack or anything. Just get in shape and become very fit and toned. I mean, I want a flat belly, nice legs and butt and and chest. I also want to get lean and toned.
I don't want to get buff but just like that. Lean and toned up.
Anyway, I had done weightlifting for 2 years before but then I stopped - I actually wanted to get fatter then I lost my mind and I started eating and eating to get fatter so I did. Okay, I wasn't fat and rotund, I was just chubby. Now I lost the weight again and I am 142lbs and 5'5 so I am okay. My muscles are okay too. They just got a bit weaker than they used to be when I was weightlifting. So, I want to strengthen them and become lean again. I am doing interval cardio everyday. It's a combination of fast walking then jogging then sprinting then fast walking again and goes on.
About weightlifting now.
My workout :
3 sets / 10 reps - Hammer curls ~ with 15lbs dumbbell
3 sets / 15 reps - Shoulder fly ~ with 5lbs dumbbell on each hand
3 sets / 10 reps - Triceps extension(one dumbbell for both hands) ~ with 15lbs dumbbell
3 sets / 10 reps - Bicep dumbbell curls ~ 15lbs dumbbell
3 sets / 10 reps - Shoulder press ~ 5lbs dumbbell on each hand
3 sets / 10 reps - Triceps extension(lying down) ~ 5lbs dumbbell on each hand
3 sets / 25 reps - Chest fly ~ 5lbs dumbbell on each hand
3 sets / 10 reps - Push ups
3 sets / 15 reps - Sit ups or Crunches
3 sets / 15 reps - Bench dips
3 sets / 10 reps - Bent-over rows ~ 15lbs dumbbell
I do this workout in the morning and my interval cardio in the night. That's the main workout. Every Wednesday and Saturday I do pull ups too.
So here are the questions:
1. Is my workout good? Is it enough or is it too short?
2. Should I have a rest day between the training days? Like only workout 3-4 times a week? Or should I go everyday except if I still feel my muscles sore the next day so I will postpone it for the following day? Short story, should I have rest days between or not?
3. Will I see any results in 2 months? Remember I just want to get leaner. Not extreme muscle gain.
4. Will it help me burn fat?
