    I don't even have one.. I just do whatever whenever I feel like it. I do cardio everyday that I can (5/7 days a week) but I hardly workout my muscles.

    My goal is to loose a ton of fat (and build some muscle) and get into shape. I can't go back and visit family in Europe like this, again, last time was a nightmare. Everybody over there is in such good shape :eek3:

    I can't search so don't tell me to search for any workouts either, and I think that it'd be best if it was customized for yours truly :love:

    Thanks guys, I'll post before and after pics once I reach my goal (no pics before that :o)

    You dont have to search, just read the stickes and scroll through the archives/peoples training logs to see what other people have/are doing. Put some effort into it and you will probably stick to it longer since you tailored it to your own specific goals.

    Also, google is free as is the google toolbar which will allow you to search any site.

    or Lyles routine


    Mon: Lower
    Squat: 3-4X6-8/3' (3-4 sets of 6-8 with a 3' rest)
    SLDL or leg curl: 3-4X6-8/3'
    Leg press: 2-3X10-12/2'
    Another leg curl: 2-3X10-12/2'
    Calf raise: 3-4X6-8/3'
    Seated calf: 2-3X10-12/2'

    Tue: Upper
    Flat bench: 3-4X6-8/3'
    Row: 3-4X6-8/3'
    Incline bench or shoulder press: 2-3X10-12/2'
    Pulldown/chin: 2-3X10-12/2'
    Triceps: 1-2X12-15/1.5'
    Biceps: 1-2X12-15/1.5'

    For the thu/Fri workouts either rpeat the first two or make some slight exercise substitutions. Can do deadlift/leg press combo on Thu, switch incline/pulldown to first exercises on upper body day. A lot depends on volume tolerance, if the above is too much, go to 2-3X6-8 and 1-2X10-12

    Any one of them is better than nothing. And you'll never know unless you FUCKING TRY!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you don't know which one is right for you, how the hell are we suppose to know?

    Stop being a pussy and try them out.

    Oh and a few more points:

    I have no idea what the workout are, all I know are like the big basic ones (military press, bicep curls, bench press, situps and pushups) (I'll search google once I get a workout)

    and it seems that the workouts posted are for like hardcore body builders that want to workout every muscle in their body.. I'd rather just get in shape and look normal and be kinda strong then to be walking around like I have something suck up my ass.

    Are you retarded?

    How the hell are we suppose to know what you're looking for beyond wanting to look good?

    Do a workout for awhile, if you like the results, stick with it. Otherwise change.

    No workouts are soley for "hardcore body builders." Every exercise is helpful. Sounds to me like you want a chest/bicep workout.

    And don't worry, with your motivation, you won't look like you have something "stuck up your ass."

    either way, it doesnt matter.. no sense in arguing.. just leave it be and let him rant if he wants, you dont have to participate in it.

    Damn theres lots of love in here, I never knew working out turned you into such an asshole (don't get me wrong, there are some nice people in here)

    Okay, for the people that actually wanna answer my questions:

    Would it be fine if I worked out 2-3 days a week and did cardio 5 days a week instead of working out 4-5 days a week?

    If fat loss is your goal, cardio 5 days a week is fine. Lifting 3-4 days a week is optimal.

    And I'm not trying to be an asshole, but your just coming in here asking us to put together a workout that's suppose to tend to your goals. And all you've told us is that you want to lose fat and gain muscle...the stickies and archives cover that. You're exposed to all the information you need, but it's up to you to put all that information together to make it work for you.

    I guess its just cause I'm too much of a noob to know what muscles I need to workout for what, and what excersizes workout what muscles, and how many sets and reps I need to do. But if you say its in the stickies I'll believe you :noes:
