Gym exercises

  • Hi,

    I'm about to start the Body For Life program. I've one question about the weight training exercises. Do I just choose one specific exercise for each muscle group and stick to it?

    For example, should I just stick with barbell bench presses as my main exercise for the 12 weeks? I was planning on using cable crossovers as the second exercise.

    Or do I move between all exercises in the group? For example, I do barbell bench presses for week 1, followed by incline bench presses for week 2.

    Appreciate any advice. Thanks.

  • Nope.  You'll want to change your exercises for the same muscle group every 3-4 weeks.  Here's a site I personally used to help plan my exercises.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    Thanks. What about the 12 reps for the 2nd exercise? Do you do it at the maximum weight possible?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, but do what you can without losing form.

    This may help with how the reps work
