depends, if you want to lose weight then Before
if you want to bulk up, do cardio on a diffrent day.

heres a link with more info:
weighttraining.about.com/od/techniquesandstrategies/a/cardio_weights.htm

I just do a 10-15 minute cardio before work outs to warm up and get my heart rate up.




recently trying this new routine for my upper body

after doing bicep curls, I go STRAIGHT into pullups or dumbbell rows, by doing that, my heart rate won't drop and my muscles will still be working out while the secondary muscles are "resting" but still working out albeit with a lighter load

so the new routine im trying out for total upper body is Bicep curls/pull ups or dumbbell rows then Pushups or chest press/Kick Backs or Skull Crushers, if my arms aren't dead yet.

lower body, i just do all the machines in a circuit. i think biking with 24oz denim to the gym is enough of a work out already for my legs lol

I mean 30mins of cardio. I also do about 10mins of light cardio to get my heart rate up before every workout.

Some good upperbody workouts:

Push/Pulls - For every pull up do 2 pushups. so 1/2 2/4 3/6 etc... Go up to 10 pulls ups and then pyramid down if you can.

Bicep curls then 25 push ups - 12 curls/25 puchups 10 curls/25 push ups etc... (You can decide on the amount of weight and reps and if you want to pyramid the weight,reps, and pushups)

Bench press then 25 push ups - x10 reps and then for each set of pushups switch it up (ex: regular,diamond,wide,decline, etc...)

Depedning what cycle Im in, I do cardio upto 3 times a day.

At the moment just doing 10 mins before I train and 15 after.

zyezye, I dont understand your logic with the whole doing bi's/tri's before your back/chest exercise?

Surely, if anything, you should be doing the other way around (and I wouldnt even bother unless you do a seperate arms day)? Your primary group (back or chest) wont be getting the maxium lift because your secondary (bi's/tri's) will be fatigue...?

Not having a go or anything, just dont understand it. Whatever works for you tho, mang.

I'm currently training for the NY Triathlon so most of my work outs consist of plyo, brick work outs, speed work, and light lifting. I'm spending about 20-30mins in the pool doing laps but need to get to the beach for some open water swims. Tough when the water is cold!!!

^ I would switch some of those around. With one body part sore, you might not be able to get a good workout for the other one.

Workout A
Squat 5x5
Bench Press 5x5
Inverted Rows 3xF(failure)
Push-ups (substitute with dumbbell presses if you want)3xF
Reverse Crunch 3x12

Workout B
Squat 5x5
Overhead Press 5x5
Deadlift 1x5
Pull-ups/Chin-ups 3xF
Prone Bridges 3x30sec


MONDAY-A
WEDNESDAY-B
FRIDAY-A

Alternate workout A & B each session. Most people train Mo/We/Fr or Tu/Th/Su or Sa/Tu/Th. Always take at least 48 hours rest between 2 workouts. Alternate Pull-ups & Chin-ups each workout B.

Do 5 sets of 5 reps with the same weight on all exercises. Deadlifts is only 1 set of 5 reps. Do 3 sets until failure on body-weight exercises: 3 sets of as many reps as you can do with good technique.

START WITH THE BAR AND EVERY WORKOUT INCREASE WEIGHT BY 5 LBS.

been swimming for 5 days every week for about 2 months now, shit has really toned my body. i've developed a beer gut from pretty much doing nothing for the past year or so, now i can really notice the difference in my body. i can pretty much eat whatever i want as long as i swim for an hour every morning.

depends. if you add milk, you are adding alot more calories and a tiny bit more protein. i like milk more since it tastes better. if you dont want too many calories, then put water. if you are skinny like alot of us are, put that milk in!

milks good to mix. i dont though because i want the fat/sugar/protein intake to be consistent with the labeling on the powder im using

monday- back + biceps
tuesday- chest + triceps
wednesday- abs + shoulder
thursday- legs (inner and outer thigh, quads+hams and calves)
friday- cardio
rest saturday and sunday.

i use to split days but not anymore since i work 5 days a week and get out of work early i decided to hit the gym also and leave my weekends to do nothing but eat and rest.

right now im around 232-235lbs, 6'2 at 15% BF. in a few weeks im going to cut the weights and do cardio till i reach 210-215 range. then around october ill start my winter bulk again.

Mon-Chest Volume
Wed-Back Volume
Fri-Shoulders Volume
Sat-Legs

Alternate weeks, from volume to frequency

Supplemental muscles are hit so I don't specifically do arms anymore. Abs are thrown in everyday, along with Cardio on days off.
