Hey T-Nation !!!
Wassup guys , i have been navigating this site and scouting it for about 2 days, and im so impressed with it that i registered just on the sheer amount of knowledge thats here.
However im still a little confused over some things and i just want someone to give me some advice maybe a little guidance.
Im 20 im overweight ( by alot ) however ive been told by some trainers that i have a lot of muscle and that doing alot of cardio would make me lose it even tho it would slim me down.
I would love to lose bodyfat and retain as much muscle as possible. Ive heard many many types of training programs but they all seem so different.
At the end i decided i would follow T dawgs diet , complete with a circuit training program 4 times a week at the gym.
The circuit training program consists of 10 exercises which are the following :
- Bench Press
- Leg Press ( i dont know the name of that exact machine sorry im still a newb )
- Lat Pulldowns
- Hamstring Extensions ( dont know the name of this exact machine also sorry )
- Seated Rowing
- Calf extensions
- Tricep extensions with the dumbells
- 5 mins stationary bike
- Bicep Curls
I do every exercise slowly practicing good form , for about 1:30 to 2 mins.
It takes me about 26-30 mins to complete. And at the beginning i also warm up with 3 mins on the treadmill.
Keeping in mind that i also play Handball about 3-4 times a week for about 2 hours , is this exercise regimen good? bad?
Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated and welcomed. Any advice as well.
