    I have read a lot of what's in the stickies, but it's a lot of information to take in. It's a little overwhelming.

    I kind of have a skinny fat body right now. I don't want to bulk up a whole lot but I want to drop a lot of body fat. Right now I start off my workouts with a 10 min warm-up run, workout for about an hour and then do a 25 min jog at the end keeping my heart rate at around 166-168. Is this a good strategy to keep doing to achieve the results I want?

    cardio will certainly help the fat burning process. eating correctly needs to go hand in hand with your workout though.

    history of athleticism? a 25 min job for a fat ass keeping at 166-168 could be a ride around a parking lot in a golf cart .. explain yo'self foo

    forget heart rate and time

    How much do you weigh, how many calories do you consume, how many calories are you burning during your workout, etc. This determines your results.

    noobs need to stop thinking so much about their goals.. work out consistant for 6 months and start to build a base... IF you actually stick with it for 6 months your body will have changed quite a bit hopefully and you might just have different goals.... and you will know more from experience on how to achieve those
