Question Just Getting On Track

HEY THERE, IM 21 A BOUT 5'7 AND 210-215 LBS ..ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I WEIGHED MYSELF. I STARTED WORKING OUT ON THE LATERAL THIGH TRAINER 2 WEEKS AGO, BUT DECIDED IF I WAS SERIOUS ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS I NEED TO STEP IT UP A BIT. SO YESTERDAY I WENT OUT AND GOT A MEMBERSHIP TO A GYM. MY GOAL WEIGHT IS ABOUT 150-160..HECK ILL EVEN TAKE 170 RIGHT NOW LOL. I KNOW THAT I NEED TO REDUCE MY CALORIE INTAKE AND I WILL TRY TO HAVE IT BETWEEN 1000-1200 PER DAY PLUS EXCERSING.

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME ADVICE ON WHAT TYPES OF EXERCISE TO DO. I CAN ONLY STAY AT THE GYM FOR ABOUT AND HOUR AND A HALF EVERYDAY BEFORE WORK..SHOULD I JUST START ON THE TREADMILL AND DO SOME WEIGH TRAINING? I DONT KNOW..AND IS IT OK TO DO BOTH ONE RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER LIKE EVERYOTHER DAY..I DONT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN! LOL..I CANT AFFORD A PERSONAL TRAINER TO GUIDE ME..SO ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!! THANKS A BUNCH!

Re: Just Getting On Track

With an hour to hour and a half, I'd reccomend 30-45 minutes cardio (treadmill, bike, stairmaster, ect) and then the remaining time on light weight/ high rep resistance training.


If you're lifting light, every other day should be fine. I assume you'll want to focus on tone rather than strength, so keep the reps high and the weight low, say at least 12 reps for each set, with whatever weight you need to get a good workout.
