    Might help if you post exactly your schedule.
    As in post up the exact lifts and body parts you choose to weight train, all week. Running following a squat day might not be the best idea. Can't tell until you post up how you are doing in the gym!

    5 days at the gym is a lot. but if your only gonna be doing cardio and working abs out for 2 out of the 5 days then it should be good. abs heal quicker and therefore require less time to heal so every other day you can work them. as far as legs and other main body parts i'd make sure that you give them the rest they need in order to grow and become stronger.

    well i was thinking of cardio after every work out (3 times a week) + an extra 2 times when i am not at the gym
    for example
    mon- cardio and weights + abs
    tuesday cardio
    wed cardio weights and abs
    thursday cardio
    friday cardio weights and abs

    but one of the cardio days would b a rest day and would go to the gym on the weekend on day

    basically i want to loose about half a stone
    i weigh 14stone 1 pound i am quite broad but i am not sure what weight i should be i am 6'2
    also if i want to loose this weight should i b drinking whey shakes 2or 3 times a day? (i just bought a big tub of the stuff )

    HI,

    You should be doing arms last in your workout.

    Large muscles first and small ones last!

    You use your biceps wen doing back and you use your triceps when doing your chest.

    If you fatigue your arms before you are done with your back, shoulders and chest, they will not get an optimal workout.
