    Now I am not trying to be on the cover of Mens health or anything. I am just looking at increasing my strength, getting rid of my belly fat, and putting on some lean muscle. To date I have dropped 25 lbs., 44 waist to 40 and put 1.5 inches on my arms.

    Monday:
    15 min. cardio,arms, and back

    Tuesday:
    15 min. cardio, chest and legs

    Wednesday:
    Off

    Thursday:
    same as Monday

    Friday same as Tuesday

    Saturday: (Sometimes)
    15 min. cardio, arms

    Sunday: OFF

    Seems like a reasonable beginner's workout. I assume that you're doing something for deltoids and counting that as one of the other categories, right? You shouldn't skip delts. Recommend getting abs (and obliques - think sidebends) on one of the serious days that gets done every week, not on the "sometimes" Saturday workout. Doing any stretching?

    I have metioned this book before. I recommend the program outlined in Bill Phillip's "Body for Life".

    Basically you'll be doing M-Upper Body Tue--Cardio Weds--Lower Body Thurs--Cardio Fri--Upper Body Sat-- Cardio Sun--OFF Mon--Lower Body Tue--Cardio WedsUpper Body Thur--cardio Fri--Lower Body Sat--cardio Sun--off

    Cardio is what Phillips calls high point training, it is really a 20 minute version of HIIT. Weight training is fst paced enough to keep your heart rate going.

    the book also outline an easy to follow eating plan that gives you a free DAY weekly.

    Thanks for the advice. Yes I am getting Delts in, wouldn't forget them. Will look for the book. Yes I do stretch and cool down.
