yes it will. If youre goal is to get swole, then it wont. If you want to stay fit and not diet then it will.

You should really consider to pay some personal trainer to make plan for you, it's really worth it. Once in week isnt enough tho.

+1 and go at least 3 or 2 times a week so you can train your muscle endurance torwards the exercises and after you get used to the exercises and such, you should start going 4 or 5 times week using two different plans.
2015-10-09 14:32
Waste of money, honestly. You can find a perfectly fine work out plan on the internet for beginners. I don't know how much they usually cost, but my gym is very expensive.
2015-10-13 13:38
Are you fat and want to get skinny? Or do u want them MUUUUSCLES?
2015-10-09 14:32
Start with deadlifts with alot more weight than you can handle. When you do deadlift, you will have to curve your back like a camel so it hurts. Then you do it right
2015-10-09 14:34
What? Once in week? I started gym with a 5 days in week and after 2months (now) im doing it 3 times in week. In the beginning better to pay for a personal trainer because u dont know what to do and etc.
2015-10-09 14:38
1st advice, go alone, otherwise you will waste twice as much time as the training requires. 3 times a week is absolute minimum, if you want to go once a week, just drop out already

no thats bullshit. It is dependent on the goal you have. I know guys that only train benchpress because they are in our local benchpress team. They have 2 trainings a week. One heavy benchpress and assistance exercises day and one light benchpress and assistance exercises day. And one of him holds the record in germany. So just saying "you have to atleast go 3 times a week" is just not true.
2015-10-09 14:55
totally agreed about going alone. also turn your smartphone on airplane mode so you can still listen to music but won't be distracted by people trying to text/call/etc
2015-10-09 15:13
as others said one day in week is not enough.. if you don't have much time to go 3 days/week maybe you find this time in home.? Buy some stuff and start train in home 1day/weak it's better than 0 days/week tho
2015-10-09 14:43
Start with 100 kg bench-press. inb4 he is dead.
2015-10-09 14:44
60kg? just eat train sleep repeat over and over again. once a week is a nothing though. push yourself to go at least twice a week. and dont forget to eat..
2015-10-09 14:46
All depends on your bodytype tbh, i've had friends who for the first time on gym benchpresses 90kg. Don't put to much pressure on yourself if it's your first time though, try out some weights and decide what feels the best for you.
2015-10-09 14:47
arms, legs and cardio.
2015-10-09 14:49
Stupid excuse u dont have time to workout more often. Cant find one hour in your schedule? then dont play cs that much :). Also if you are going with your 2 friends the rest between sets will be too long
2015-10-09 14:49
i would reccomend you to go at least 3 times a week, or 2 if you really cant go often. Since its your first time ask advice from someone who knows exercizes for starters or just check on the internet. Good luck
2015-10-09 14:53
If you are starting just go 3 times per week and then if you fall love with this shit you can go up to 5 times per week. Also switch up your training routine every now and then. Dont overtrain thats the issue.
2015-10-09 14:55 You need to praise Brodin to get swole, he is like the gaben of lifting. also see this: Quick workout, you will manage this 3x week

2015-10-09 15:09
find the biggest weights. Then lock your legs and lift with your back. You'll do fine
2015-10-09 15:09
Don't listen to HLTV. They are all people that have read about getting big and are obsessed by it because of low self-esteem. If you go once a week you will become fit and feel the effect of the endorphines. You probably won't get big af, but reading your comments i don't think you have the time or desire for it. A gym is perfectly fine for exercising without getting swole etc. Don't overestimate yourself. Ask gymteachers. Ask friends/people in the gym. Push yourself. Make variation in exercises. Hydrate regularly. Have fun.
2015-10-09 15:11
Once a week is waste of time if you want results. Would recommend going three times a week.

2015-10-09 15:29
compound exercises e.g. deadlifts, squats, shoulder press, bench press, bent over rows etc... you should try body weight exercises to start... they're great!! pullups, chin-ups, dips, pushups, squats whilst holdaing a plate to your chest. just don't stand there curling a tiny weight or a too heavy weight for hours on end.

2015-10-09 16:07
You should go atleast 2-3 times a week. Going once a week will do nothing
2015-10-09 16:08
If you're going to do it, do it 3 times a week or you won't see results. Start with a warm up run. Wait until you've fully caught your breath, drink water. Start by working larger muscle groups -- Your routine should be one or two large muscle groups a day since it doesn't sound like you want to work out 4-5 days a week :) After working a larger muscle group, you can get more specific to the exercise. Here's the plan I've been following for the past 2 months Workout Warmup: 50 minute cardio Monday - Chest Dumbbell Bench Press • 4 sets of 10-12 Reps Flat bench Cable Flye • 3 sets to failure Inclined Dumbbell Press • 4 sets of 10-12 reps Low Cable Crossover • 4 sets of 10-12 reps Barbell Inclined Bench Press • 3 sets of 10-12 reps Tuesday – Legs Leg Press • 4 sets of 25 reps Barbell Walking Lunge (or with weighted vest/dumbbells) • 4 sets of 25 reps Legg Extension • 3 sets of 20 reps Seated Leg Curl • 3 sets of 20 reps Smith Machine Calf Raise • 3 sets to failure Thigh Abductor • 3 sets of 15 reps Barbell Lunge (on the smith machine) • 3 sets of 20 reps Wednesday – Abs and Arms Barbell Curl • 4 sets of 10-12 reps Hammer Curls Hammer • 4 sets of 10-12 reps Spider Curl Spider • 4 sets to failure Triceps Pushdown Triceps • 3 sets of 10 reps Dips - Triceps Version Dips • 3 sets to failure Hanging Leg Raise Hanging Leg • 4 sets of 20 reps Rope Crunch Rope • 4 sets of 20 reps Russian Twist Russian • 4 sets of 20 reps Thursday – Back Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown • 4 sets of 10-15 reps Barbell Deadlift Barbell • 4 sets of 10-15 reps Barbell Shrug Barbell • 4 sets of 15 reps Pull-Up (wide grip) • 4 sets of 15 reps Hyperextension (Back Extension) • 4 sets of 15 reps One-Arm Dumbbell Row • 4 sets of 15 reps Inverted Row • 3 sets to failure Friday – Shoulders Dumbbell Shoulder Press • 4 sets of 12 reps Front Dumbbell Raise • 4 sets of 12 reps Side Lateral Raise • 4 sets of 12 reps Standing Military Press • 4 sets of 12 reps Reverse Flyes • 3 sets of 10-15 reps Saturday – Legs Leg Press • 4 sets of 25 reps Walking Lunge (or with a weighted vest/dumbbells) • 4 sets of 25 reps Leg Extensions • 3 sets of 20 reps Seated Leg Curls • 3 sets of 20 reps Smith Machine Calf Raise • 3 sets to failure Thigh Abductor • 3 sets of 15 reps Barbell Lunge (on the smith machine) • 3 sets of 20 reps ** Important last piece to add. Since it doesn't sound like you've done anything else in terms of working out before. Posture while working out is super important. I sort of see you as a 16 year old going to a gym with a lot of younger kids. You'll see people doing bicep curls and using their entire body to basically thrust the bar up. This can be a few things; the weight is too heavy, or the lifter is inexperienced. If the weight is too heavy for you to lift it using the muscle group you're supposed to be doing, and you find yourself thrusting your entire body to lift it you need to use less weight. You won't see results, and you'll hurt your body by thrusting dumbbells up and throw out your back.

Not really concerned with that... The exercises above burn enough calories to not get fat. The cardio is more for better health.

2015-10-09 19:53
Well the 1st thing is stop asking for advice on a gaming site. The internet is full of credited nutritionists and trainers, take a second to do some research and critical thinking on what you want to achieve with the amount of time and work you are willing to sacrifice.
2015-10-09 16:58
Before doing some heavy lifting, train your abs and your back for a couple of months, its to prevent having injuries! sorry for bad english :D
2015-10-09 17:01
go more than once, twice or 3 times preferably.
2015-10-09 18:10
3 times a week is the minimum.

You should just stick to bodyweight exercises if you're that busy and can't handle more than once a week. a) waste of money b) probably no results c) time d) you said you only wanted a fit chest and back

LOL, once a week- no results. 4-5 days in a week
2015-10-09 21:59
Do compound movements and go more often, like 4-5 times a week.
2015-10-09 22:51
dont expect ANY noticable results if you will go once a week
2015-10-09 22:51
1 day does nothing you have to atleast have 2

if u go with ur friends ask them hltv are all wannabes im 100% sure 50 % only pretend to go to gym and look shredded
2015-10-10 18:34
Once a week does actually nothing. Nothing. Nada. No effects. You have to work out at least 3 to 4 times per week to see any results. The muscles in the body react as following. During the workout the muscle fibres are "torn" from the stress you induce upon them. These "tears" are happening naturally in order to make "room" for the muscle to grow (whatever muscle, even your neck ones). So, the optimum time for resting if you are a gym newcomer is 48 hrs if you perform circular programs (meaning you do all muscle group exercises which is the customary for newcomers). Having said that if you perform circular programs you should work out on Monday (f.e. noon or afternnoon), Wednesday (the same time), Friday (the same time) and it is up to you if you want to join the gym on Saturday or Sunday. I would recommend that you get into things early on meaning that you should press your self and commit, you should tread in a fast pace for 20 mins before and after workout on a 10% angle treadmill so you will get your aerobic and anaerobic state in a better shape. I personally fully disagree with the "circular" programs, as the thing they only do is to stress the whole organism at once. You could ask your gym specialist to create a muscle group program from the start meaning that you would exercise two muscle groups each time and i explain. For example Monday, chest triceps , Wednesday (to let the torso region recover as you are a rookie) you can play feet, calves, and arms (not HANDS, ARMS), on Friday you can go ahead and do your back and biceps. For the starting 4 weeks you should ask low weight high intensity sets f.e. 4x20s or 4x30s in a fast pace, as i believe "high" weight for your standards and low intensity will overrun you. Everyday it is safe to say you can and should do 20 minutes more treadmill fast paced 10% incline and perform 50 abs / 50 back lower . Do not be lazy and you shall receive the looses (of fats) but more important, the gain(Z) (of life , jk) and in the words of Dom Mazetti, Work And Thou Shalt GainZ. Welcome to the gym community, dont steal reps go to the gym, work your ass off, and you ll definitely get what you need - want - or even imagine. Gl Hf. P.S. Cheaters are reported around in the community beware you can get VACed in some gyms, seriously.
