    I have been doing this routine for about a month and a week. It was explained to me that if I keep up with this routine for 3 months then I will see results? I'm new to fitness so I want to start off right.

    that is way too many groups on T,TH,S. I'd take it out to a 3 day back, legs, chest routine if you're a newb to lifting.

    What kind of results do you want though? If you want fat loss then you should keep the cardio up, if you want muscle gain, try walking instead of running. If its strength training, try less reps, if you want bigger muscles, try 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps.

    I'm looking for more of a muscle or in other words "Cut","Toned". I watch my calories so I know that enough cardio and a good set routine will help me with my goal. I will try the 4 sets of 12 like I have been doing.

    If anyone else has anything to say please, "SAY SOMETHING!" I want all the advice I can get.:x:
