and mix up your cardio. run, bike, stairs, rowing, just constantly rotating so that your entire body gets a workout.

I haven't read through all of this, but if anyone has any insight...

I'm pretty thin, about 6'1, 170. I play basketball and soccer weekly, but I'd like to work out a bit more and add some muscle (tone mostly, not builder shit). I've sporadically done simple pushup/situp workouts, and I'm thin enough I see results fairly quickly. Do i have to join a gym to see real results? Any routine recs? I should probably eat better too.

Can anyone give advice for dropping 10-15 lbs relatively quickly yet in a healthy manner?

I'm 5'8 and weigh about 165...so I'm not THAT overweight but I'd like to slim down a bit. I just started going to the gym two weeks ago and I've been going 5 times a week during those two weeks. I do 15-20 mins of cardio then lift some weights.

I'm looking for a more efficient use of my gym time so I can achieve some results. I also know eating better is equally important.

Thanks

a slightly more regimented system would help as in...day 1 - chest day 2 - back/biceps day 3 - triceps day 4 - circuit training or just cardio day 5 - abs. If you have the time, it's said that 45 minutes of cardio is the minimum needed to see effects for weight loss. It depends on how you do your cardio though.You want to split your workouts 50-50 though so that would entail another 45 minutes of weight training.

care to provide some rationale for your supplements? I'm not criticizing, I just never fully understand why people take the supplements they do and if I should incorporate.

i've been a heavy lifter for quite some time (3-4 years). I've always had great results (i'm about 6'3, 215, bench max around 275). Pretty happy with my build but need to do more cardio.

anyway, that was a ramble, my main question is does anyone think taking anything other than a multivitamin and whey protein is important? i've taken creatine before and really felt no results from it. Just wondering people's thoughts on pre-workout mixes, etc.

So I'm about 185 right now. I don't have a lot of fat except for some around my lower stomach. My plan is to do about a month of cardio to get down to about 170-175 and then start a serious muscle building regimen. I have been told recently that as I build muscle it will burn away the excess fat...not sure the validity of that statement but I have heard/read it in several places. My question is...should I skip the cardio portion and start my muscle building regimen now and rely on that to burn the excess fat away?

I say unless you're a competitive athlete following a very specific training program, doing both cardio and muscle building at the same time is the best option. Most people just do their weight lifting and then just do as much cardio as they feel like/ as they're capable of, at the end. Of course, it's best to do abs even after that, if you're going to do abs.

only experience with protein is ON gold standard whey. very good flavor/mixability. don't use protein shakes that much anymore though.

apparently trutein is absolutely delicious as well if you're looking for something that has good flavors.

Know anything about Hardcore Pro series? So far I've only got my friends' input on it and he says its pretty good, a little on the expensive side but still good.
