Hey, so like the thread says... I am rather new at lifting but I do have some equipment.
I have been reading a lot about compound lifts, and how they should be the root of your routine.
But... I don't have a barbell... but I will post what I have so maybe you all can help me ?

EZ Bar
Tricep Bar
2x 10lb Dumbbells
1 35lb Dumbbell ( Sadly, I am to weak to curl the 35lb DB, I mostly can only do Bent Over Rows with it )
About 80lb free weights
Resistance Band

Right now I am making due with what I have, I would post my entire routine but I am sure you are all sick of that.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Should I just go and get a Barbell and salvage my old bench that sits in my
nasty basement ?

Scratch this entire thread.... I found a lot more free weights downstairs, the bench is salvageable AND I found a barbell..... I am ecstatic lol.
But now... is there any good workout routine I should follow ??

Is it a proper barbell? Eg an oly bar weighing 20kg/45lb?

Also firstly you need to know your goal...then build routine around this! All the best
