I used to spend a fair amount of time in the gym (mostly due to my hours on a treadmill, but with some weight lifting as well). Since starting to follow PB I haven't really been to my gym - I've mostly been doing the body weight exercises at home. I've decided I'd like to get back to the gym (probably twice a week) to do some lifting. I was wondering if anyone could give me some basics about some good places to start. Do you typically do a couple of body parts one day and then the other body parts the other day? Or just a full body workout each day?
There are a million different exercises online so I'm wondering if someone could recommend some good ones to start out with. As I said, I have a bit of experience, but not a lot. I'm looking to gain some muscle and lose about 7% body fat. I'd like to improve my overall fitness.
As I mentioned in another post, I think I have a pull in my pec minor at the moment so I'll probably take it easy on that to start out, but it would be great to get a plan in place anyway! Thanks for any help!

You can try Strong Lifts 5x5. They used to have a good manual on line of an essentially the same program.
