After browsing these forums and reading the articles for a week I decided to make a post. I'm 5'10" and 240 lbs. My main goal is to get down to about 200 lbs. and in shape. I know this will take a long time, but I am looking for some advice on how to help achieve this.
My current routine has me going to the gym before school everday at 6 for about an hour, I do light cardio either treadmill or eliptical for 10 minsand hit the weights for rest of the time.
My current breakdown is
Monday - Shoulders/Shrugs
Tuesday - Back/Biceps
Wednesdays - All Cardio/Abs
Thursdays - Legs
Fridays - Chest/Triceps
On Tuesdays and Saturdays I play basketball for cardio in the evenings.
I have a few questions:
What should I be eating if anything before hitting the gym in the morning?
Should I include a cardio session before or after a workout?
Any other tips regarding nutrition or how to better reach my goals will be much appreciated.
