    So by now you guys are wondering why is he telling us this!!!!

    Well im after some imformation from anybody on here that may be a personal trainer or just know there stuff im struggling with diet as i know my way around a gym im far from a proffesional im really struggling to know what to eat and what routines are best at the gym my aim is to lose the layer of fat over my muscle which in my reckoning is about a stone and half and to increase size whilst getting a cut and defined figure that is my ambition is there anyone that could give me some advice please.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Am not a personal trainer but played competitive rugby for years - worked alot with SRU trainers and a like. If your purely looking at cutting fat and less worried bout weight gain try buying a heart rate monitor, ur body burns fat when the heart is beating between 60-70% of your maximum heart rate. You can get moniters that will let out beeps if your getting 2 high/low and helps you keep working in this "fat burning" range. Also means you need 2 take a day 2 find ur maximum heart rate.
    Alternatively if you wanna work hard, build a bit of muscle and improve fitness I would suggest a full body work out followed by agility and running/cycling bout 2-3 times a week. For example

    bench press - 3sets
    overhead squats - 3sets
    lunges (walking or static) - 3sets
    back squats -3sets
    sit ups or V-sits - 3sets
    chin ups - 3sets

    followed by
    running slalom (between cones or poles, always finish with a 10meter sprint)
    and a 5km good paced cycle - on a bike or machine

    Just make sure you work all areas every time, a shoulder, leg, back and core work out. You dont need 2 do a slalom everytime but that was always my preference, some guys prefer doing the tyre runs (as seen in American football movies) I would always finish wi a bit cardio some people dont understand how important cardio work is for muscle development but if you think the better try breath the better you muscles can recover and improve

    also 2 build muscle just remember increase the weight and drop the repetitions. To improve tone decrease the weight and raise the number of repetitions. also he is right train for fat burn or the other way. mixing wont work u'll prob get fitter but overall results wont be a great

    that sounds like an intense workout i used to warm up by a 20 min workout on the treadmill mixed walking and jogging before going into weights what i have been doing now is weights first then a fast paced run on the treadmill after which i find very good i must admit its working so far i can see some results i know it will take time and wont happen overnight and the main thing is im enjoying it i aim to have my heart rate above 165 bpm on the treadmill and the weights i do lift a mixture of lighter weight and heavy weight but wont lift something i know i cant what i do lift is something i know will be a challenge but nothing that i would struggle with

    Must go check the local gym out. Limited to what I can do with legs, always used to do a lot of cross country running/road marching, swimming, badminton. Since I've not been able to I'm really not happy with my fitness or weight.
