Need a cardio/weight training routine

hey, Im 22 yrs old, 5'9'' and 160lbs. I recently had dental surgery done and had 2 go on a liquid diet for 2 months. I lost all my muscle, my metabolism slowed down and I have way more body fat. I need a good cardio/weight training/diet routine. I have a treadmill and weights at home and I have tried to lose weight by working out and eating right but I'm just not getting any results. I'm very determined to lose around 20lbs and basicalls to lower my body fat percentage and increase muscle. Can someone please help me?

Goto your local gym and they will help you out, also go to a nutrition expert.

Re: Need a cardio/weight training routine

Here's a link to a previous thread that has a basic diet-forf-fitness outline:
http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?p=1824895#post1824895
As for exercise, use your weights maybe 3x a week, and make sure hit all your muscle groups. If you do compound exercises like presses, rows and squats, you don't really have to do specific exercises for smaller muscles like biceps, triceps, hamstrings, quadriceps and such. Make sure you're using a heavy enough weight that you can do three sets of 10-12 reps but not so easily that you can breeze right through it. Your last rep should be a challenge. If it's too easy, it's useless. Cardio should be 30 minutes long at least. Ideally first thing in the morning or right after weight training. But whenever you have time to do it is better than not at all.
Just remember that diet is the BIGGEST factor to weight loss. You can work out all day and not lose a pound if your diet is not in check. It will help, but they have to be working together toward the same goal.
Hope that helps.

Why go to the gym when there is the plethora of information that is the Healthboards right at one's fingertips?
