Currently I lift weights 4 days a week, alternating back/shoulder and chest/arms. Before the tear in my right knee I had a fifth day in there for legs/torso. Should I look at changing up the exercises I do when I go to the gym? I currently do 3 to 4 different exercises for each body part with 3 sets of 16 reps (if possible). I just recently increased the number of reps from 10-12 to 16 reps.
Also, should cardio be incorporated every day I go to the gym? If I don't lift weights on a day, should cardio still be done? Thanks for any assistance. Life in a gym is a completely new experience for me.
