Hi all, 1st post here.
I've stopped training (and exercising in general) for about 3 years and want to get back up into shape. Different work environment and a new gym opening nearby kinda opened up both my time and wallet for this.
Historically, I got all my exercise before my classes start by going early and doing it then and there. I didn't really exercise at home or anywhere else. I went to 3 classes a week, 2+hrs each class. So basically I'm a gym-noob and need help in understanding not just what I should do at a gym, but whats what on a basic level.
The said new gym opens in 4 months, and I'm starting to do some basic exercises and stretches at home in lieu of this. Interestingly, they emailed me and said I can go to any of their other Gyms while waiting for the one I signed up for to open. The nearest one isnt overly far, but inconvenient in terms of driving to it due to jams.
What kind of routine should I be doing at home, and if I was to go to said 'nearest' gym once a week, what machines/exercises should I do?
Note: I'm looking for overall weight loss and general fitness at the start, nothing specific yet. Leg strength and flexibility would be the next thing after that.
Note2: Right now I'm at 3x25 push-ups, 3x25 sit-ups, 2x2 chin-ups, 3km jog with slight incline.
