I am 32 years old, 6 feet and weigh 194lb (Approx 88 Kg). My heaviest weight was 205 and my lowest was 179. My goal is to lose fat around my waist and build muscles. I am following a DeFranco workout routine (4x a week) as follow:
Monday (heavy upper body) Barbell press (120lb), Dumbell press (80lb), Fly and shoulder press.
Wed (legs) Squat (200lb), lunge, upper back and abs.
Fri (repitition upper body) Pushups, fly, biceps and triceps.
Sat. I start the cycle back (heavy upper body).
I try to do cardio on non-workout days (20-30 Sprint on a treadmil or eliptical). I have been following this program for six weeks and so far I canï¿½??t see much results and I am wondering if I am doing something wrong in my workout routine. One other area of confusion for me is my diet. I tend to go into extreme either by cutting carbs or to eat much of it. Overall I avoid sugars and deserts but not sure if i should be eating carbs or not or how much protein I should be eating…
Here is a sample of my diet:
Breakfast: one slice Rye bread with peanut butter, 2 small yougart (fat free) a fruit and 2 scoops of protein shake (27 gram protein per scoop) with milk, Green plus, fish oil and flax seed.
Lunch: salad with some sort of protein (chicken, cold cuts)
Pre workout: A protein bar (30 gr protein)
Diner: a low fat frozen diner (chicken or beef or fish with rice)
snack before bed (fruits) ( I tend to eat lots of fruits throughout the day as sugar, not sure if thats too much sugar or not)
In addition I take Purple K Creatine (4 pills on workout day and 2 on non-workout days)
Can anybody please tell me what I am doing wrong as I am pretty confused and have been reading endless articles on the internet that added to my confusionï¿½?ï¿½ My goal seems to be realistic which is to lose belly fat and get better muscle definition, however I am not sure what I am missing…
I will appreciate your comments
