    Alright, well i started back up in doing weights/cardio. I wanna loose like 50lbs of fat and gain some muscle. Now, im fat, and my goal is to be bulky with no beer belly or anything.

    Anyways, the personal trainer guy told me to do this routine for a month:

    every other day do

    3x10 chest press
    3x10 upper back
    3x10 leg extensions
    3x10 leg curls

    and 30 min cardio before or after workout.

    He told me after a month we'll get into specific workouts, so I'm assuming that he wants me to get my core into shape a bit?

    My main question is, how the fuck do I know when to go up in weight, and what weight I should start lifting. It seems like everyday I can do a different ammount of weight, it's weird. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks

    This is what the trainer guy told me to do, and he seemed pretty broly himself, so what the fuck is with the difference in opinons?

    First off, leg ext/curls are retarded for someone at your level. You need to focus on compound movements like squats, deadlifts, RDL's, bench press, rows, pull-ups, military press, etc.

    Secoondly, archives/stickies for a real routine.

    You do not have what is known as a "base" and those exercises are "isolation" exercises. To build a decent base you must focus on compound lifts and they will also do a ton more for strengthening "you core" then any isolation movement will at this point.



    yea its fucked up aint it

    Alright.. so i should probably stick with the chest press and upper back, but then do squats and something else instead of the leg machines?

    chest press = bench press?

    don't use machines, free weights are better

    Personal Trainers are terrible.. at least most of the ones that I've dealt with.

    I'd recommend that routine... good, simple, helps build "your core" fairly quickly. Thats what I started on as well as a bunch of others on this board. Doesn't seem like much but if you do it right you will feel it

    yeah, same shit, and i'll use freeweights then.

    Okay, so can you give me a quick routine that will put muscle on most major areas? I dont want a routine where i'll have to spend 2 hours working out per day, every day. I heard that muscles burn calories 24/7 and are much more effective in helping me loose fat then cardio is, so I want to put muscle on most of the areas where i have the most fat (gut, thighs, arms). So shouldnt I do ab crunches also, if what I heard is true?

    Do the routine that I just posted and do cardio 3-4 times a week... Also, make sure your diet is in check. By far the most important thing with losing fat is diet. I don't care how much more you work out and how much more cardio you start doing, if you aren't strict on your diet its not going to work out.

    awww nigga, awww. My diet could be better. I've tried improving it but its so mother fucking hard :mad: It's not that I eat fatty foods often, because I don't, but its the cookies and shit here and there that I think is killing me. I fucking LOVE meat and potatoes, so I eat that the most.. so I'm not sure if thats good or bad. I know that meat = protien = good but potatoes are carbs.. :dunno:

    oh, fuck you. im not about to give up and i never have. Ive been doing cardio 4-5 times a week for months, dick head, and ive lost a lot of weight, but now im trying to gain some muscle. I admitt, i did give up on lifting weights before, but thats only because I was even more swamped with shit back then. my house was broken into, had no insurance, car broke, school, tryin to find a job, etc.
