Gym Advice for a (sort of) beginnerWatch
Since then I've been doing at home workouts on and off, and at the start of summer I started going back to the gym. I've mainly just been going to gym classes (HIIT, Tone and Les Mills Body Pump and Body Attack classes) and short dumbbell workouts. I hadn't seen major changes in my body (though some friends were commenting that I did look different) and I began to lost motivation around August time, especially with uni starting back.
I'm wanting to get into more of a routine and I've planned to go to some classes again over the next 2 weeks just to build a little bit of my fitness up again.
After this though I'd like to start going to the gym to do planned workouts however I'm not sure whether starting around 3x a week with a full body split (and cardio on the days off) would be best or whether to do like an Upper/Lower split (incorporating cardio at the end of some weight sessions). - Initially I'd thought about the 3x a week maybe for 4-8 weeks just to get back into the swing of things again.
My main long term goals are to lose a bit of weight and then build some muscle (especially in my glutes as they are looking a little sad and I am very quad dominant) and strength (especially in my upper body).
For context I'm 22, around 5'4-5'5 and weight around 11st - 11st4 depending on the day (last year I managed to get down to 10st5).
any advice would be greatly appreciated
