I recently bought a home gym and started working out. Did a little research, and every other day since I started on Wednesday, I've been targetting one specific area per workout. For instance Wed.-Arms Fri- Chest Today- Abs etc, and I was wondering if this isn't doing more harm than good. I thought it would be better this way, because I don't have to spend as much time messing around with the ropes and pulleys on my home gym to switch between a thousand different excercises and could spend more time working out.
Anyway, my main question is, do any of you guys train like this? Has it worked well or does it do more harm than good? As I said, I'm just starting out and I don't want to keep doing this routine just to realize six months in the future that no gains are being made.
What equipment do you have? If you don't have a squat rack, you need to buy one. And take a look at this routine ~> WBB Routine #1
If you can't afford the equipment, you should join a gym that has the equipment.

I have a Bandflex LT 2000. Yea, I thought about going to the gym but I just don't have time. I have a full time job and school starts on the 6th.Originally Posted by sCaRz*Of*PaiN
Using a machine to lift is inefficient at best, dangerous at worst.
Trying to isolate muscles is inefficient at best, dangerous at worst.
Can you still make progress with your plan? Sure, but it will pale in comparison to someone who uses a routine based on movements using free weights.
