    With my cardio, I am doing treadmill, elliptical, and bike each day. Example, last night I did 3 miles in 28 minutes on treadmill, 3 miles on elliptical in 29 minutes and 7 miles on bike in 30 minutes. If I continue to do that, would that be considered mixing it up?

    I have been looking all over bodybuilding.com for a good weight training routine to do and holy s**t. There are like 500 posters with 600 different opinions. I am considering the Starting Strength program but I don't know for sure yet.

    if you really like the cardio work thats great,just remember every machine will not be calibrated the same so your results will vary at the end of every session,i am a huge fan of interval training especially tabata interval training

    This does look interesting. I like a really intense workout. That is what I liked about Insanity so much.

    I don't really like cardio training. I just know that is the best and fastest way to get rid of the rest of this gut.

    honestly at this point i wouldnt be so regimented,just go and do 5-7(try different things every time and see not just what you like but how your body feels and reacts to them) different exercises,4 sets including one warm up on each until you start to see your strength coming back


    also,do not be afraid to ask questions to people in the gym who look like they know what there doing........trust me they like giving advice
    another thing,dont worry about how much weight you can lift,it will vary at times for different reasons and it really isnt important,its not how much weight you can lift,its how much weight you can lift correctly
    and most importantly,technique and form.......make sure it is correct so you do not get injured

    So when I went to the gym Thursday, I got them to check my body fat and it is 19.8%

    I thought for sure it was higher than that. So I figure at that, if I can lose about 20 more pounds, that should get me right around 10% and at that it's possible I may be able to see a little abs. Of course if I workout right and eat right then I may not lose 20 pounds to get to 10%.
