Alright, i finally decided on a routine, and it's kinda some what custom, but makes sense to me.
it's and adaptation of the gym, with p90x idea's thrown into the mix.
im not recording weights until next week however, and im already done week one. first week was to try it out, second week was to adapt, 3rd week is to start logging. It's a 3 month log, so there's plenty of log time haha
History: ive been going to the gym of and on for about 3 years now, this last year being pretty serious ( 5 times a week, trying routines out, and doing something regardless ), went from 280 lbs down to my current 174-178 (depending what i eat that day ), im some what in shape looking around the shoulders, bi's/tri's and forearms, but due to the loss of weight, i still have loose saggy skin/fat in all the important area's. hopefully by the end of this ( first week of the new year ), i'll have a flat stomach and maybe a ab or 2 :P
diets been tailored a bit, and i eat healthy / a lot of protein.
on to the log:
Mon: chest and back + abs ( normal chest and back routine )
Tuesday: cardio ( 40 mins elliptical )
Wednesday: shoulders, arms + abs ( normal shoulder, and arm routine )
Thurs: cardio ( 40 mins elliptical )
Friday: legs, back + abs ( squat + deads, then 2 exercises from each area )
sat: cardio ( 40 mins elliptical )

Week 1: week one was just finished as of Saturday, and wow...i was wrecked, i never actually wanted a rest day so badly in my life. the goal for each work out is to be out in 1 hour, so intensity is high, and rest is low. For abs, i do 11 exercises with 25 reps in each, i feel beat every time, but after the 4th time ( today ) i feel as if im less and less winded after each session. It's deffenently something new, and the whole point is to have muscle confusion or w/e through out the weeks. this 1st week was a test run, so i didn't log my weights, and this second week i just started/getting in the grove, so again no logged weights, i will start however on Monday of next week.
i'll post a before pic AFTER i finish this along with a after pic to show you guys if it works or not.
supps im on: Fusion, pro7ien, glutamien, and bcaa's all from vita-sport
