    A few starting Q's

    Hello Boardmembers,

    I want to improve my general condition of fitness and I am interested in toning my arms a bit. Being on a limited budget, I prefer to work out at home, what items should I buy? I was thinking of dumbbells.
    Can anybody give me an advice on how much training or working out I should do generally speaking to yield some results? (I do not intend to train for being like a huge bodybuilder, but just get rid of a little fat and tone up my arms) I am 6 ft 2 and weighing 180 lbs and my level of fitness is apart from fairly good muscle strength almost none. I was also thinking of pushups and situps, how many you recommend for achieving my goal?.

    A friend told me that you should not exercise every day, because it will make your muscles actually smaller. is this true?

    Thank you in advance for any replies

    Patrick.

    Just use the search thing and search for a training program. One thing though, don't do a 1000 crunches everyday ; )

    Btw, great name, loved the movie.

    Thanks for the reply ! I will search for a training program.

    American Psycho is indeed a fine movie, the book is somewhat better though.

    Thanks again!
