I havenít ever really worked out. Use to play a lot of sports and was always in shape but that was a long time ago. I have had some back problems a few years ago and donít do near as much Manual labor as I used to so I am out of shape to say the least. I am really going to get back into bow hunting this year and would like to get in shape and start working out. But I donít have a clue as to what exercises to do or where to start. Iím not big on going to the gym just to work out but I do have acces to the gym at my apartment and it is pretty nice.

All that to say where should I start and with what kind of workouts should I focus on. I am 6í3Ē and around 190 ish pounds and flat out of shape.

For starters, just do 50 pushups, 50, sit ups, 50 sure squats every day until your muscles are used to it, then add some things. 50 burpees would also take the place of those other things.

If you do that every day, you'll have a decent cardio base in 2-3 weeks, you just gotta keep ramping it up. You'll know you're getting stronger when you start stringing more push ups together.

Thanks. Have no clue what a sure squat is, but I will look at up. Ainít no way I could do 50 push ups at once right now. How would you recommend doing it? In sets of a certain amount?

Go to exhaustion on each exercise. Rest a day. Day 3, do the exercises in a circuit, completing 80% of the # you completed when you went to exhaustion. Complete three circuits, going to exhaustion on the second and third round. You're not overweight, and not working with heavy weights, so IMO you could do this daily. Give yourself a couple of weeks and max out again on rep's. Increase based on your new max.

Air squats, I thought I corrected it.

And yes, do as many as you can, move to the next exercise and do as many as you can, until all 50 are done.

If you want to lift at your apartment gym take some pics or list the equipment they have there and how many days a week you want to workout and I'll write a program for you.
