Training 5 times a week to burn fat
Found a training program from an article in IRONMAN.
Its a basic training program to lose weight based on a 12 week span.
Training is from Monday to Friday working each muscle once a week and with no more then 5 sets each.
Cardio work is 3 times a week minimun but nothing intense, the usual 30 minutes at 65% heart rate to burn body fat.
incline smith machine press
stiff legged deadlifts
close grip pulldown
Personnal note is that i have back pains and also want to use this training for rehab, along with this i am gonna do a lot of streching and posture ajustement.
Is that any good, i am not using steroids , but i am taking whey protein, and eating a very clean diet.

Reps are between 8 and 20 depending on the muscle group, legs are higher in the 15 to 20 reps scheme.
Back and chest is 8-15.
I don't wanna gain mass, i just wanna lose some weight, love handles.

Dont know about all that, but from experience I can offer the tried and tested cardio method.
3 times a week, 225 - age x .7 for 40 minute. Have been doing it for two weeks with no weight in between at present. Lost 7 pounds and no muscle mass what so ever.
No AS. no ECA, just diet and cardio bro, best thing IMO.

so whats your daily split/ regiment?

taiboxa i got to figure this thing out, this will be on Thursday cause i meet with the physio, and i will bring everything to him and see what i can and what i can't do.
I would love to train 5 times a week and really split the muscles on 5 days say
chest and hamstrings
Nothing much has i said around 5-6 sets per bodypart and add 40 minutes of cardio 3 times a week will be quit enought to lose maybe 15-20 pounds.
I am 5 feet 10 right now and 203 pounds with lovehandles and gut.

i would SERIOUSLY reccomend keeping legs all together since you utilize both ham/quads in almost every compound motion that is beneficial for leg development.

Sadly i cannot do lots of compound and might not be able to do anymore til i die if i dont ever cure this damn lower back injury, it takes time lots of time, my muscles in the back spam a lot i have been to a lot of so called professionals and for the most part it did nothing.
I would really love to get back into martial arts myself and get in great shape but still i am so limited with the pain and spams.
I have started streching a lot and doing Yoga sessions to see if it will help.

yoga will be very benefical but your goign to have to seriously dedicate some time to lots of core trainig excercises to get your entier abdominal area stronger this will GREATLY Reduce the back pain i assure you... learn to use a stability ball read and research on line tons of excercises to strengthen your transverse,serratus,etc...
05-03-2005, 06:34 PM #10
Thanks taiboxa, did you suffer lower back pain has well??? yes i did tonnes of research, i got a EMS unit electronic muscle stimulator that i use same has when i went to the physio for about 20 minutes.
I will start a serious ab workout has you said and seach the net for serratus , transverse and all.
I have an exercice ball but i just dont like working with thoses.
