How to combine bench press and cardio for beginners?
I have a cheap bench press that goes up to like 150 pounds, it has a leg thing to attached to it. I used to go to the YMCA a couple years ago, but that got too expensive, and now I have a treadmill, an exercise bike, and a basic bench press. I never used to be consistent at working out. What should I do on my bench press starting out. I need to build muscle strenght and want to get a 6 pack. I’m chubby at 175 pounds and 5 ft 7 inches tall, but I’m not fat. I used to be scrauny my whole life. I want to lose a little weight, but enough to get a 6 pack and not be too skinny? I was born with low muscle tone, and now at age 26, I think my muscle tone is a lot better than it was when I was born with it. Never had big muscles. Other than that, I’m healthy, except for smoking, which I’m going to quit. I need to encorporate a work out routine with a basic bench press along with the cardio with the treadmill and exercise bike I have, so any information on what to lift and how many reps for starting out. I’m decently strong now, but no muscles. I don’t have free weights or dumb bells just bench press. How do I work all parts of my body to build muscle strenght for a beginner with just a bench press? Like curling the bar, or squats. Working biceps and triceps. Anything on the basic bench press to work chest, abs, legs, and arm muscles? Should I work out every other day doing the cardio and the bench press or should I alternate each day, bench press and than cardio? Any info will be helpful. I don’t want to lose too much weight, but I want strong abs, chest, and to be able to at least show some muscles. I know to eat carbs and proteins before working out, but waiting for them to digest to begin, just proper beginner techniques for the equipment I have is what I am looking for and routines?
