Getting ready to cut
Hi im 5'9 220 lbs and ive been working out for about a year now. I was originally bulking up for football but, can't play because i need to pay for my car and insurance so i got a job. Anyway i used to lift 3 times a week and do light cadio 3 times a week. I did lose 10 lbs during alll this and some inches and gained some good muscle. But now i want to loose at least 40 lbs just to have a healthier looking body. So i was thinking of cutting for about a month or two, doing cardio 6 times a week and just cardio, while taking a fat burner. I will do some push ups and sit ups just to keep my muscle a little active. All in all i want to know if this is a good plan and if theres any suggestions for a good fat burner that really works?
I do have a good diet so thats nothing to worry about and i plan on lifting again once i lose the weight, but i want to be cut and not bulky huge. i mean i want that six pack lol so if someone can give me some input that would be strongly appreciated

bad idea just doing the cardio dude
A good way to put it is just cardio will turn you from a big pear to a little pear (burning muscle and little fat).
Doing lighter weights with higher reps will also keep your metabolism higher for a lot longer after you leave the gym than doing cardio. In my opinion you want to do weights 70% and cardio 30% mix in your routine if you want the toned look.

I'd suggest lifting 3-4 days a week and doing HIIT on off days. Circuits and Supersets would be good lifting routines for your goals.

Circuit training is effective for successfully cutting body fat? I used to get nagged for circuit because I was told I was 'over training.' I, however, felt and looked as though my body responded to circuit very well; I was becoming more muscular, vascular and toned.

ok so ur saying i should just do lighter weight more reps and i was now thinking of doing cardio in the morning, lifting after school, then another cardio after dinner. I would lift on monday wed and friday and do abs and forearms on tuesday and thursday. I was also wondering if i take a fat burner while doing this will the results come faster?
it would be greatly appreciated for a response

Applied liquid Clen/Napalm transdermally for about 5 days, then took 2 off.
EOW, I would apply Thermo-glide, or Lipoderm-Ultra.
Took DCP/Leviathan Reloaded as directed on the bottles.
I ate relatively high protein, moderate carbs and low fats. My training would last usually about an hour, or so. I lifted heavy, sometimes to fatigue and sometimes I'd follow the 5x5, or 6x6, program. On WO days, I'd run for about 30-45 minutes before hitting the weights, but I've heard it's better to run afterwards. On non-WO days, I'd run for maybe 45 minutes in the morning, on an empty stomach.

My Circuits contain 3-4 compound movements like Squats, Rows, Push Ups, Step Ups, Bench Press, Pull Ups, Chin Ups, Dips, Lunges, Deadlifts, etc. I lift 3-4 days a week and on occasion walk for 15-30 after lifting and on off days.

Weight lifting Monday, Wed and Friday sounds like a good plan. You don't necessarily need to use lighter weight and more reps to get a fat burning workout. You should focus on making your workout intense- you should be sweating and your heart rate should be high, and often times using heavy weights will get the job done. Be using weights that are heavy enough to provide a great challenge.

As for a fat loss supplement:
Fat loss supps are just like any other supplement, they are the icing on the cake. They are not ABSOLUTELY needed for you to make great strides towards your goals. They will have no impact on you if your diet and training are not right. But if your diet and training are good a fat loss supplement could help you meet your goals faster.
I have tried several- Shred Matrix, Reduction, X-Force. X-Force is honestly my favorite because of the incredible energy boosts, mood enhancement and fat loss results I have while taking it. I really like taking a couple of caps pre workout because of the stamina and endurance X-Force provides.
