Hey guys, I'm new and need some help. I got a weight machine that my dad bought a few years ago and I have just finished my second week lifting. I take Cell-Tech and try not to eat anything sweet. I skip a day in between workouts. Here's what I do. Arm curls, leg curls, squats, vertical bench presses and two other things that I will have to explain what they are. I pull the bar behind my back which works my back, whatever that's called and I lean forward and push the arms of the machine above my head which works my shoulders. Sorry, I don't know what those are called. I start off with 50% of my max weight for all the exercises and do 17 reps of everything. Then I do 15 more with the same weight of everything. Then I add some weight and do 10 reps of everything. I then add more weight and do 5 reps of everything and then do 2 reps of everything with max weight. Then I go back to 50% weight and do 17 reps of everything. It takes me about 30 minutes to do it all. Unfortunately I don't have a bench so I can't bench press although when I get stronger I am going to start lifting with these two guys I know that are monsters. But anyway, is what I am doing now okay? I'm 18 and don't know that much about bodybuilding. I just got tired of being weak and honestly I like lifting most of the time. Hehe. I'm 6' and weigh 215 pounds and I want to get in good physical shape. Is this routine helpful at all? After two weeks it doesn't seem to have helped even slightly. I know it takes a lot of time, but when will I be able to tell even the tiniest difference?
