Hello everybody, I'm so glad to have come across this awesome website and community! I'm new to working out and I would gratly appreciate any advice and recommendations you could give me. I have done a lot of research and combined my own workout routine that I think would help me achieve my goals. I wrote a bit more about myself further down. I was thinking of doing a whole body workout routine 3x a week, preferably on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The program would be as follows: Alternate every two weeks: 3 sets of 10 reps / 6 sets of 5 reps 1) Alternate: Squats or Lunges2) Barbell Bench Press3) Deadlifts4) Alternate: Pull ups or Chin Ups5) Butt Lift/Hip Raises6) Dips 7) Dumbbell Shrug8) Alternate: Exercise Ball Pull-In or Sit-Ups What do you think? DO I have everything covered or should I add or change something? (PS: Thank you for taking the time to answer me and help me out! <3) Fitness Goals To lose weight and to gain strengthExercise Preference Body weight, barbells, bar you use for budypump, bar you use for squatsCurrent Physical Stats Gender: FemaleAge: 18Height: 158cmWeight: 58kgTraining History I've done this beginner's workout program with less reps per set for two weeks: http://www.muscleandstrength.com/workouts/conditioning-workout-for-women.html. => I've mostly used 4kg-6kg weights In addition I have started the so called blogilates beginner's workout challenge (I will continue with Day 8 tomorrow): http://www.blogilates.com/calendar/beginners-calendar-for-popsters-just-starting-out , Current Diet Normal; I'm trying to aim for approximately 1500 kcal of healthy food daily, but I've been slipping up on the weekends.Current Resources/Limitations I have access to a gym and I have a fair amount of time available.
