    I would suggest getting off all of those damn machines! Machines are great and all, but you need to use some free weights!

    I agree, machines should be used sparingly.

    I think the only machines I use are might be for lying/seated leg curls...and on superset week, chest, I use the seated press for a drop set....of course I do use latpulldowns and shit like that...but, dumb bells and barbells are superior!

    What do you mean you don't have time. In the time it takes for people to reply to your threads you could be researching things on your own. Then come back to your thread and read the replies.

    Search for what ever you want to know about. Check the best nutritional threads in the diet/nutrition forum, they have a lot of great info. As far as keywords go just pick something you are interested in for example:
    whey protien
    creatine
    legs
    biceps
    triceps
    carbohydrates
    protien
    fat
    calories
    chest
    back
    abs
    glutamine
    etc....

    Well, look at the program and weights I am currently utilizing on circuit machines, this is going into my 6th month (Feb)....I practice lifting as heavy as I can handle.....is it too soon - should I continue on with circuit for a while?

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FatLos...pe/message/103

    And, from what I have read, most BB use free weights for curls and squats but concentration exercises are ALL on machines...yes/no?

    BB use free weights for almost everything and machines only to mix things up every once in awhile.

    concentration exercises? I assume you mean isolation exercises?

    Dumbbell flyes and preacher curls are isolation exercises, so no that is not true.

    I would have to say "no" to your inquiry about BB using machines Bladezz. Most BB use free weights.

    Ok scratch that argument. I can't readily argue something I know nothing about (yet)...

    Back to my question on my current training.....

    do you feel that you're getting results from your current training routine?

    sorry if I missed this, but what are your goals?

    Yes, I do - My main goal initially was to lose bodyfat and am doing so albiet in slow pace. I want to know if I can tweak or "up" it a notch to get more defined in muscularity. I know I must reduce more bodyfat to get there and I was performing cardio HIIT 3-4x a week after weight training (offsetting ANY possible gains) but now I quit totally about 1-1/2 weeks ago.

    I know there are NO shortcuts but my current training maybe isn't good enough for what gains I desire to get more pronounced and leaned out....

    Any advice?

    if losing bodyfat is your main goal your concern should be your diet, actually your main concern should be your diet either way, but particulary in the case of getting leaner.

    I have my diet here....I watch that too, drink lots of water and take the basic supplements along with trace Creatine, Glutamine and Amino's in Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex shake post workout.

    Maybe it's because I am female also aged 37 and I need to push harder than the average person....

    I think you need to enlist the help of DP and w8lifter on your diet.

    try eating sweet potatos instead of regular potatos....ditch the oatmeal cookies and meat-filled perogies. Try brown rice instead of wild rice. Ummm, other than that, I am not an expert, so yeah I agree with Prince...consult w8lifter and Dr. Pain. They're great, and w8 is quite the looker!

    But it's w8's turn.......

    Bladezz, hopefully you've read:


    http://ironmagazine.com/modules.php?...article&sid=18

    http://ironmagazine.com/modules.php?...article&sid=39

    and


    http://www.ironmagazineforums.com/sh...?threadid=5121

    Now it would be easier to "give you' a Nutrtional Program, but I will critique your's also......


    I noticed you went to w8's site and and figured your caloric requirement.......here is a simpler approach

    BW X 12-15 The less BF...the higher we go...

    According to your posts, your BW is all over the map. You posted 140...then said you gained 4 pounds...but you used 70 kilos in the formula which is 154 pounds...so for simplicity I'm using 140 X12 ...or 1680 Cals....raise current levels gradually, over many many days, even weeks

    We would then use 50% Protein, 15 % Carbs (only slow burners, from your reading) and 35 % Fats

    or 840 cals of P or 210 grams (1.5 grams/pound)
    .....252 cals of C or 63 grams
    .....588 cals of F or 65 grams

    We then break that into 6 meals to speed your metabolism

    roughly:

    35 P 25 C 11 F
    35 P 05 C 10 F
    35 P 20 C 10 F
    35 P 10 C 10 F
    35 P 05 C 10 F
    35 P 00 C 15 F

    See Jodi, Britney, or w8's journal for meal planning


    -------------------------------------------------------------


    I know this is your 'high' carb day

    Day #14: Goal - Reduce Bodyfat/1 Month CUT.

    Totals are listed at bottom.
    ******************************************

    Breakfast: 10:00a
    6 Egg Whites
    (0 carbs, 21 protein, 102 Calories)
    1 tblsp chi-chi salsa,
    (1 carb, 0 protein, 4 calories)
    8 oz. cofee w/ fat free creamer
    (2 carbs, 0 protein, 40 calories)

    ***0 - Omega 3's NONE RAN OUT!@), 1-Calcium, 2-Vitamin C chewable
    (1000mg).

    =3 Carbs, 21gr Protein./Calories: 146

    Add 1/2 cup slow cooking oatmeal, measured before cooking and one whole egg 33 P 25 C 10 F, ditch that creamer..use real cream, 1 T = 5 F


    Snack: 11:30a
    ½ cup Cottage Cheese,
    (4 carbs, 14 protein , 120 cal)

    =4 Carbs, 14 gr. Protein./Calories: 120

    DO NOT eat 1.5 hours later, first meal should have been much sooner...space 2.5 to 3.5 hours, this is not a meal.....35 P 5 C 10 F

    Water 24 oz.


    Lunch: 1:00p 1-Multivitamin, 1-B-Complex
    6oz. chicken breast
    (0 carbs, 43 protein, 200 calories)
    1/2 cup white potato
    (13 carbs, 1 protein, calories 66)

    =13 Carbs, 44 Protein./Calories: 266

    I think you have your carb count wrong on the white potato, which is a NO NO, you would want 4 OZ of Sweet potato, veggies, butter or oil based dressing. TIMING IS OFF again, I suspect hypoglycemia


    WORKOUT: 2:00p-3:00p
    Circuit/15 Machines/ No Cardio
    3- BCAA's
    (No Post workout protein shake - RAN OUT!!
    Propel 24 oz.

    NO Propel


    5:00pm
    DINNER:
    6oz. chicken breast
    (0 carbs, 48 protein, 322 calories)
    1 tblsp. low-fat Mozerralla Cheese (shredded)
    (7 protein, 1 carb, 50 cal)
    1 cup mixed american veggies
    (1 carbs, 1 protein, 10 calories)
    ½ cup wild rice
    (17 carbs, 3 protein, 83 calories)

    =25 Carbs, 53 gram Protein, Calories 465

    to long to go w/o food, best meal I've seen....that looks like a cooked protein measurement...decrease portions all around

    Water 24 oz.

    7:00pm
    SNACK:
    2 meat filled pierogi
    (21 carbs, 8 protein, 240 calories)

    =21 Carbs, 8 gram Protein, Calories 240

    Bad, not a meal, and bad timing, we don't eat pasta, and your calories don't add up w/o a fat count 4 X 29 = 126 from 240, suggests 114 calories of fat.......12 plus grams of fat, which is OK)

    8:30pm
    SNACK:
    2 oatmeal cookies
    (21 carbs, 2 protein, 140 calories)
    1 tblsp. Peanut Butter
    (3 carbs, 3 protein, 100 calories)

    =24 Carbs, 5 gram Protein, Calories 240

    Worse timing, worst non-meal...NO cookies ....it's not about calories as much as it is about macronutrients,,,you want Protein fat and fiber at every meal. YOU NEED VEGGIES and some friuts, we only allow apple, grapefruit and berries. read!

    DP


    ***********************************

    Today's Totals:
    =90 Carbs., 145 Protein - Calories: 1477
