Stick to the basics:

Deadlifts- work your entire lower body and core
Lunges- Entire lower body
Squats- Entire lower body
**there are quite a few variations of each of these you can switch up between.

Push ups- entire upper body
Bench Press- chest, arms, shoulders
Overhead Press- shoulders, upper back, arms

Side bends- Obliques, lower back
Planks- entire core
back extensions- lower back, glutes, hamstrings

I also like chest flies and one arm rows. Pull ups are suppose to be the ultimate upper body workout if you can get a pull up bar ***but you may need someone to spot you at first and help you to do assisted pull ups. As well as bridges for lower body and core.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Hey guys, I have been using weight machines for the past few months but am thinking of starting free weights as I want a total body workout, not just certain muscles that the machines work out. I am wondering if anyone had any advice of exercises to do or even any youtube videos to look at. They have so many different choices on youtube and I feel very overwhelmed when looking for them. Thanks everyone
