Am I doing the write thing/how do I get faster/stronger?


Question:As of Thursday I will have been lifting weights for seven days.

About a month ago I was 6'1'' and 240lbs, and am 20 years old. I improved my diet and lessened my calorie intake and I'm now 225lbs, but I want to start adding some muscle.

I began lifting with a friend last week on a fixed weight machine called Paramount Fitness or something, he has me doing the following: Curls(With free weights), lats, skullcrushers one day, then benching, military benching, shrugs the next, alternating.

We do what he calls Super sets, which is 3 sets of 20, reducing the weight by 20 lbs at rep 11.

Also, we started playing Tennis and swimming...

Am I doing the right thing to get stronger and faster? I know the Aerobic things like Tennis and Swimming just can't hurt, but I am not so sure on the workout or reps or anything of that nature.

All helpful information will be appreciated.

Should I buy a blank deck?

As a beginner you should pyramid your sets. For example:
20x100
15x125
10x150
6x175
10x160
10x150
Always strive for more weight on the middle sets. Super sets are for more advanced lifters, certainly use them later on.

Cool trivia!!?

You lost 15 pounds in one month with nothing but reducing calories and exercise?!? That's pretty... intense. I wouldn't go too all out hard-core. If you don't let your body get enough rest, you'll end up getting sick or injuring yourself.

What sports should i play next year in middle school?

You're on the right track. Keep it up but don't overdo it or you'll get sore. You should also start running on a track or by using a treadmill to get faster.

Protein shakes are a good way to bulk up too.
