    Limited Resources - Need a good routine.

    Well I've just started working out again however until Jan. 7 I have to work out in the 'gym' at my apartment complex. They have a treadmill, an inclined bench press machine, a siting military press machine, a lateral pull down machine, a leg extension machine, and a pair of fourty lbs. dumbells. All of these are in a fixed position so I can't adjust them. I also have a curling bar with 50 lbs. at my house.

    The goals I have are a long athletic muscle building. Not bulky but not like soccer player big. Like a swimmers build.
    I'm 18, 6'2, 210lbs so I think I got great potential to get there.

    Heres my routine in order:

    20 mins on the treadmill at a moderate speed (set at six if anyone knows what I'm talking about)
    15 pushups to warm up
    15 reps on the lateral pull down : 110 lbs
    10-13 reps on the inclined bench press : 170 lbs
    15 reps on the leg extension machine : 70 lbs
    10-13 reps on the siting military press : 90 lbs
    10-13 reps on the lateral pull down : 90 lbs
    10 reps on the inclined bench press : 150 lbs
    10-13 reps on the leg extension machine : 70 lbs
    10 reps on the siting military press : 70 lbs

    Then sometimes I'll curl the dumbells like 5 times just for the hell of it.

    Is this routine any good? Any suggestions on something to add in? I just don't wanna end up looking lop sided, you know...

    hmmm...........what is your "sitting military press machine" like. What I use is just a standard bench press rack. If that's what it is, do bench. If not, incline will work, just not as well as a regular bp w/ a incline afterwards. Also, if you have just a regular barbell, do deadlifts w/ it.
