Ok, so I am a 27 year old male in the Army. 21% BF at 212 lbs according to my last weigh and tape test a month ago. I am now 208 lbs. I am asking someone to please evaluate my routine as I am trying to drop fat and be leaner. Nutrition wise I am eating a healthy low carb high protuen diet and snacking about 150-200 calories every 3 hours. Nutrition is good and I am at a 1200 calorie a day deficit.
Ok so my workout is 5 days a week.
Monday and Thursday is chest and back, alternating between both. I do 5 exercises for each muscle group at 3 sets of 15. I alternate exercises between bar and dumbbell with pull ups and dips every time I work chest and back.
Then 30-40 minutes on treadmill with hr at 170 bpm
Tuesday and Friday is biceps and triceps. Same amount of exercises and reps as chest and Back. I rest for about 30 secs between sets to keep my heart rate elevated.
Then 30-40 minutes treadmill at hr of 170 bpm.
Wednesday is abs 45 minutes vigorous with a trainer, starting with 9 minute abs then a mix of leg raises, flutter kicks, etc... With 1 minute rest between 2 minutes of exercise.
Then shoulders 4-5 exercises at 3 sets of 15.
Then legs if there is time.
Saturday and Sunday rest.
I am taking 50mg testim 1%, fish oil, b-12, and a multi-v everyday.
I would like someone to tell me if this is an ok routine and offer up suggestions. I started working out again in January and have lost about 20 lbs since but I feel as though results aren't coming fast enough. I do not want to be one of those guys in the gym who can bench press a truck but has a homer Simpson belly. Thanks a lot for the help. I REALLY appreciate it.
