    Started training yesterday, but need some help.

    Need to lose weight and need to build some muscle (arms).
    My legs are fairly developed (but not my thighs). So, I don't necessarily want to beef up the calves.

    About 70% of my weight consist of muscle tough, so I find it difficult to loose weight.

    What would be a good exercise plan to follow?

    Plenty of core muscle workouts to increase your core strength , sit ups , press ups etc are fine , however if you find these boring goto you tube for the top 10 core exercises and there is a specialist set of core exercises which use a device called TRX training strap which is used by the military . A good core is essential to staying trim and fit . Don't forget cardio vascular , running , jogging , walking , high intensity pad workouts etc , after all the heart is the no 1 muscle in the body which we depend on for everything . I walked an average of 15 miles a day for two weeks on a minimal diet and i lost one stone , although this wont apply to everybody it worked for me . Combat and fitness are a good combination as they consist of high intensity core and cardio vascular workouts , again i train weekly in various locations and i have found this type of training useful . For more advice feel free to e mail me at pinkselfdefenceandfitness@yahoo.co.uk , good luck .icon_biggrin.gif

    That's why I never used the forums.

    Thanks everyone for your comments and time. I appreciate it.

    Thanks Caslon. Noticed the workout plans, but this is a set program, and I don't necessary want to work on my legs.

    Thanks for the advice jamesday1. Have indeed started with cardio training for now and decided to start with a combination of cardio and muscle at a later stage.
