There are two main reasons why you might need ideas for gym routine workouts. 1. You’re new to lifting and are trying to figure out where to start. 2. You’ve been lifting awhile and are stuck in the same routine. We’ve been in both positions, so our hope with this post is to give you one of our gym routine workouts to help guide you or give you ideas for exercises. If you’re new to weightlifting, be sure to check out our other posts for beginners: Joining a Gym for Beginners and How to Start Working Out.

Disclaimer: We are not personal trainers and are not advising you on how you should work out or what exercises to do. Just writing out one of our gym routine workouts for you to see.

We separate our gym routine workouts by muscle group. Some people do the same. Others may combine different muscle groups. Some do push, pull, legs. There isn’t one correct routine to follow. If you’re lost or need guidance, there are usually personal trainers who work at gyms or you can find them on social media or word of mouth. If you’re super into fitness, you could also become a personal trainer yourself through different certification programs.

This is one of our earlier gym routine workouts from this year. We’ve switched sense then, but don’t have as much of a set list of exercises each time. We have these workouts logged on an app called Jefit, which helps us stay consistent and increase weights/reps.
