I am just starting in the gym and am curious. Where do I start and is one rest day a week enough rest?

If you are just stating out 3 days a week will be sufficient, especially since you will naturally be sore from the new exercises.  But if you feel up to more days in the week you can do that as well provided you don't train the same muscle groups back to back.

I always liked to break it up this way

Monday: lower body

Tuesday: upper body

Wednesday:  cardio and core

Thursday: lower body

Friday: upper body

Saturday: cardio and core

Sunday: rest

Thanks. I'll give that a try. Trying to go to the gym at least 5 times a week

Monday: Chest

Tuesday: legs

Wednesday: shoulders

Thursday: biceps and triceps

Friday: back (consisting of Lats, traps and lower back)

Just an example
