    I have been in the process of doping weight for a long while now, i have been doing at the lest 60 mins a cardio 6 days a week and some weight lifting for four days a week. I am 30pounds away from being at my ideal weight. I am just ready to move on now to building muscle, and that's what i plan to do. The saying is, when gaining muscle you should do to much cadio because your bound to lose the gains in the process. Its also said that you should not work out the same muscle group no more than once a week. Ok this is what i am seeing in my mind as a weekly schedule (with out listing 45 minutes are cardio done each day)

    Monday: Back, shoulders
    Tuesdays: Abs ?
    Wednesday: Arms
    Thursday: ?????
    Friday: Legs
    Saturday: ????

    See where im feeling kind of empty/lost on ? Also, from what ive heard was your abs do not need a rest much like your other biceps do. What am i missing ? As far as dieting goes, i will just continue to do whats been working for me a while now, low carbs just add on a protein shake, maybe three a day. I have this large container of protein called Gold Standard 100% Whey. Oh well........................... GOD SOMEBODY HELP ME!

    Eat... A LOT! You might be surprised to find that you'll burn more calories lifting. There are many, many workout routines any one can suggest; however, you'll need to find one that your body's comfortable with and can recovery properly from.

    www.bodybuilding.com is a great informational website - I'd start there.
