    I've been using the same workout plan for months, and I think it's definetely about time I use a new workout. Anybody recommend any good websites or other places I can find weight loss workouts? I looked at the workout on the real jock website, but it looks more for building muscle than losing weight. Any advice will help thanks

    There are about a bazzilion and one workouts listed on this site. It's what it's here for.icon_wink.gif Maybe try the Strong and Lean one. It's more for losing weight and toning.

    There's an old adage, "Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym."

    The Strong and Lean may appear to be a "muscle gaining" workout, but that's because it is. It should be. You have to operate at a calorie deficit to lose weight, and in order to maintain muscle mass while your body is going through that catabolic process, it's really important to do some good weight training.

    If you're really interested in losing weight, I would meet with a registered dietician and discuss your goals and strategies to get there. icon_smile.gif

    Try RealJock's Strong and Lean workout plan. It's much better for losing weight.

    There isn't a workout program in the world that is going to really work for you unless your nutrition is in order. I spent years of my life thinking that a trainer or some special secret program was going to get me the results I wanted and it never happened.

    There is a book called eating for life by Bill Phillips. The basic guidelines of his plan for nutrition is that you eat six meals a day. One portion of protein size of your palm and a portion of carbohydrates the size of your clenched fist. His book goes into much greater detail and has many recipes you can pick out that are enjoyable so you don't feel "deprived"

    Simple, Applicable and Sustainability are keys to a successful program. I don't think what is recommended on here or even on men's health's website has all three of those qualities which are essential.

    I'm not asking for nutritional advice, I'm asking where I can find a new workout plan. I know the basics of nutrition, I've lost weight before. The only thing I'm still confused about are carbs because it seems many people have conflicting views on the issue. Anyway, that's another topic, but I think I might try the workout on this website.

    Alright I think I might try out the "strong and lean" workout on this site. However, I'm kind of confused on one thing. For each weekly workout, there's 2 workout sequences. Am I supposed to do both sequences in one day? Am I supposed to do one sequence one week and the 2nd the next week? Or do I just choose between the 2 sequences.

    I just downloaded a program onto my iPod called iFitness. Pretty cool. Has a list of many different exercises for all muscle groups; you can keep track of your progress; they have different programs for different goals. All in all, I'm pretty excited to use it and have it to track my workouts (it even graphs your results so you can monitor your progress).

    SFboy, that confused me as well with the S/L program. I asked the guy who created it and he said that you just start at the top, do your sets, and move on to the next exercise, all the way to the bottom, not separate weeks or days, day 1 is day 1 on week 1, top to bottom.

    Hope that helps.

    Btw, I started to do the S/L program but decided to switch to the Muscle Building one in stead, but the s/l kicks your ass!
