Weight Loss & Muscle Building Routine ????
I would like some advise about what I should be doing during my work out
Right now I would like to concentrate on weight loss ( about 50lbs fat ) & gain muscles mainly arms & better looking chest. I am NOT looking at being some genetic looking freak
( not that's there any thing wrong with that :thumbup: )
Right now my trainer has me doing this workout 3 days a week
All exercises are 3 sets of 20 reps
* Ab machine 60lbs
* cardio 5 mins
* shoulder 80lbs
* bench press 70lbs
* Dead man lift 5lbs
* squats 5lbs
( Please keep in mind that I have really BAD knees so the last 2 are only 3 sets of 10 )
On my "off days" I do cardio for 45 mins to 1 hour
I am currently taking protein & creatine & I am also following a nutritional food plan that allows me roughly 1,500 calories a day
Is this the right routine for me. My trainer said it will take me about 1 year to lose this fat & that sounds like a LONG time. I realize I didn't put this weight on over night but a year ????? :omg:
Is there a better way or a faster routine or should I shut up & be patient ?
Maybe I should mention that I have added bicep muscle exercises on my own that I do each day.
