I am a first time poster, so apologies if something similar has been asked before.
I wanted to get opinions regarding my workout schedule. Firstly, I am 6'1" (185cm) and 178lb (81kg).
I work out as follows: Workout A (chest, triceps, shoulders), B (biceps, upper (sometimes also lower) back, legs), C (abs, obliques, lower back, and cardio).
During the week I do day 1: A, day 2: B, day 3: C, and then repeat. How often should I be taking a rest? I have started taking a day off after each three day cycle, but is that something that is effective? Is my schedule logical?
I've been going to the gym regularly since about June last year (2011). When I started I weighed about 86kg, vs 81kg that I weigh at the moment. I was pretty much sedentary prior to this. I am trying to lose fat, but also gain more muscle - I am not looking to be huge, but going more for definition and to fill out my shirts etc a little better.
Also, a recent fat percentage test done by a trainer at my gym showed my fat percentage to be 19.8% (however I can see my abs to a certain degree)
I am seeing that there are results, in that I have gained more muscle and that there is more definition. However, I would have expected that I would see better results by now. I do take protein shakes and eat normal sources of protein. I aim for about 120g of protein a day when I am working out.
I hope that is enough information regarding my situation.
I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.
