2 day a week total body routine for beginning lifters with little time to go to the gym.

Day 1
Bench Press 4-5 working sets
1 Arm Dumbbell rows 4 working sets
Incline Db Press 3-4working sets
Bicep Curls 3 working sets
Db Lunges 6 working sets
Db Skull Crushers 2 sets

Day 2
Squats 4-5 working sets
Deadlifts 4-5 working sets
1 arm Db Overhead Press 4 working sets
Pulls ups 2 sets till failure (*hit at least 3 reps or work up to a total of 10)
Dips 2 sets till failure (*hit at least 3 reps or work up to a total of 10)
Hammer curls 4 sets

For the first month work in between 15 to 7 reps.
Keep adding 5-20lbs until you can not do 7 reps.(this will teach you about weight progression)

*Always do at least 2 warm up sets with just the empty bar, or light Dumbbells.*

For the second month taper down your reps between 12 to 5 reps
Alternate out some of your assistance movements for different yet similar ones.

For the third month taper down your reps to 10 to 3 reps.
Alternate out some of your assistance movements for different yet similar ones.

For the fourth month you should be ready for a different program.

A
Squat
GHR
Military Press
Barbell Row
Skull Crushers

B
Deadlift
Leg Press
Bench Press
Pull-ups
BB Curls

***Start with 3 Sets of 10. Add another set each week until you hit 5 sets.

Then, drop to 8's, then 6's, then 5's, then 3's then 1's

Add weight as you decrease reps by 2.5-5 %

Welcome to the forum. My best advice is to stick with the basics...and work on your overall body strength.

Bench Press
Pushups
Dips
Pullups

And if you have access to the equipment, squats, deadlifts, curls, closegrip bench presses, overhead presses.

Learn good form on exercises from a trusted source, and then slowly practice your form with light weight.

What equipment do you have access to?
