    Advice needed for a newbie

    Hey Guys,

    I'm just getting seriously started on building up muscle and also to lose weight, what do u recommend as a training schedule? Here's my info:

    Height: 5'8
    Weight:240

    I've got a decent frame, wide shoulders. I have a gym at the place I work, so im lookin to work out about 4-5 days a week. What combo of cardio/weight do u guys recommend? Thanks i'd really appreciate any recommendations!

    I'd start with just building mass. Muscle burns calories as well, so the more muscle you have the better at burning fat you'll be (theoretically). I wouldn't do cardio until you know what you are eating and have gotten that under control. When first starting, just controlling the amount of sugar you eat and increasing your healthy protein sources will quickly yield results.

    As far as routines go, the WBB routines are a good place to start:

    If you want to split it up to workout more often, you can split up the chest and back days into 2 separate days. That's what I do.
