So I've always been quite lanky (I'm 183cm and 68kg) and lacking in confidence a bit, I used to run a lot but my main weakness is lack of strength (I can't even do a pushup). I've joined by university gym with mixed experiences so far, I'm getting a good workout from crunches, the leg press and especially the rowing machine (sore shoulders and triceps). I'm doing dumbbell chest presses too though only at 8kg each hand (any heavier and it's not even the weight but my form) and dumbbell side laterals at 5kg each. I was also able do to 15 pushups using a knee-height stool today. With the other machines and especially the freeweights, I don't have a clue what I'm doing and the gym charges for tutorials, I'm figuring I'll work it out over time. Does anyone have any advice on where I should go from here?
