Most individuals who are nervous or are not experienced in strength training can feel overwhelmed when they get into the gym. But, you don't need to spend much time with the weights to reap the benefits. Keep it simple. Do just three exercises a session, which will take you about 10 minutes each day. Do a chest exercise (push-ups, chest press), shoulder exercise (shoulder press, lateral raise) and a tricep exercise (tricep extension) on one day. On the following day, do a leg exercise (squats, leg press), back exercise (lat pull-down, seated rows), and a bicep exercise (curls). If you're just interested in maintaining your strength, doing these sets of workouts twice a week will be adequate. It doesn?t have to be scary!
