Buy "The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding" by Arnold Schwarzenegger if you're serious about making exercise a part of your lifestyle. That book has everything you'll ever need to know about working out.

Read that cover to cover last summer. Very informative. I actually used a workout from the book all last summer and had good results.
It was
Monday Thursday Chest/back
Tuesday Friday Arms/Shoulders
Wednesday Saturday Legs

about 3-4 exercies per muscle, sets of 4

I lost about 10 pounds over the course of the summer and got my bench up to around 250 while weighing 170. Not too bad for about an hour a day. I didn't really do any cardio per se, but I played alot of sports and worked outside most of the day.

I'm using that same workout now, but I think I am going to switch to a one muscle group once a week schedule sometime in the next month.

If you want to lose weight cardio(running, walking,etc..) it's a must, 30-45 minutes 3-5 per week. This is my Weightlifting Workout Routine.

Monday - Chest/Triceps
Tuesday - Legs
Wednesday - off
Thursday - Shoulders
Friday - Back/Biceps
Saturday - off
Sunday - off

Real quickly....
( I don't have much time to post)

Weight training, and cardio.

Weight training ......resistance training gives you the muscle which burns calories just by having it. Result=Increased metabolism.

Cardio.....Not so fast that you get out of breathe. Too intense, and you'll be burning the wrong calories.

Food......Eat 4-6 meals per day. Divide your target number of calories up into those meals. Slightly more calories in the meal just before your most active time of the day.Try to stay with low glycemic index foods. High glycemic index foods cause an insulin response which flushes the sugars out of your blood stream, and quickly stores it as fat. www.mendosa.com has a good list of foods, and their glycemic indexes. Oh, and fiber is your friend.


Patience, and consistency are probably the 2 best things you can have. Also, don't go in there and expect super fast results....Rome wasn't built in a day.


I could right you a book on this stuff....if I had time. Maybe later. See ya.

Yeah the book is awesome. I follow it all the time and it's listing of all kinds of different exercises really comes in handy when I start to get bored with my workout. It's really like a weightlifting bible, no other sources are really neccessary if you have it.

My favorite chapter is "Groping or fondling: The art of the 10 minute co-ed workout".

I dont understand the whole wrong calories thing. I always figured running was a great excersize for the legs, and wouldnt slow down any other muscles from getting bigger

At the wrong intensity, your body will be forced to use some proteins.

Good for the legs, bad for other muscle groups. If you want to burn fat and not muscle you should stay in a target heart rate range off about 70% of full intensity.

I always do my cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Incline treadmill at about 3 mph for 30-45 minutes.

MAX-OT is GREAT, definitely one of my favorite routines. I mix that in with the Ironman HIT program and any of Chad Waterbury's programs regularly.

Thanks. I love working out. I just wish I had a training partner right about now. There aren't any spotters at home. I'll admit, I've been kind of slack lately. The only thing I've been doing for the past 2 months is benching, and a few sets of curls here and there. Oh, and riding my bike a little.

Yeah I hear ya. A good lifting partner does wonders. I do most of my lifting at home because of that fact, so hard to find someone thats as serious as I am about it.

I have an olympic bench, a curl bar, and 330 pounds of weight. (including the 45 pound bar)

I have two people who come and go as workout partners. Neither one lasts long before having a good excuse.

What is your work out plan look like?

meaning do you do weights and Cardio? Weights one day, cardio next?

also, if you like, I can write you up a meal plan, because the weight traing portion has been covered. I also indorse Max-OT!

if you want me to write up a meal plan, I'll need to know your height and weight.

I'm 6'4" and about 185lbs depending on my outfit that day. I like walks in the park and full body massages. I eat whatever and enjoy drugs and alcohol. Will you write me something? Meal plan, short story or poem would be super.

I'd like to know if it's okay to do cardio, weights and a vigirous self gratification regiment all in the same day, or should one alternate days??

:hi5:thanks in advance, Mr. Swole!
