There are millions of different exercise and workout theories out there and the key is to find the one that works for you and your body. I’m not going to tell you what to do or how to do it; I’m just going to give you some advice for when you’re organizing your workout.
When you begin your workout you should focus on the larger muscles (chest, back, thighs) first because they require more energy, and then move to the smaller muscles last (biceps, triceps, forearms). By organizing your workouts in this order, you will be able to exercise longer, harder, and correctly develop that great physique.
Another big topic is whether to do cardio before or after weights, but I will cover this topic next time. For now I have put together a few exercises in the correct order that may help you organize your workout a little better. Here is a total body workout beginning with the larger muscles and ending with the smaller ones:
I recommend doing three sets of 10 to 20 repetitions!!
