Looking for some feedback: I'm in decent shape, 5'11, 160 lbs. My primary motivation for going to the gym is for general fitness and to build/maintain strength for cycling and skiing. My current routine is only 1-2 days a week at the gym, because frankly, when I'm not chained to my desk, I'd rather be outside. I wouldn't mind putting on 5-10 lbs of muscle, but I'm not going to spend sunny summer days in the gym when I could be on my bike instead.
Because I go to the gym relatively infrequently, my thoughts have been that focussing on squats, pull ups, and bench press will offer the most effective work out given my goals. I'll throw in a few other exercises for arms and core work, but I spend most of my time on the big movements for legs/chest/back. I'm also thinking of getting dead lifts back into my routine.
What does NSMB think? Am I wasting my time working out so infrequently? Should I be getting more variety? (I do squats/bench/pull ups every time I work out).
Way back from the old school days of NSMB…
