Rojo and Rama,

Since we last talked, I've kind of improved my work out program and part of the reason for that was downloading the JEFIT app that was recommended on here. I think what I want to do is build muscle (And lose weight, but I'm 6'1" 190 ibs.) but here is the schedule I've been trying to follow:

Elliptical trainer 3 times a week (10 minutes of warm up at low resistance, and then finish after I lift for 25 minutes at resistance 10)

Mondays: Biceps, Chest
Wednesday: Abs, Butt, Back
Friday: Tris, chest, Legs
Saturday: Butt, Shoulders, and more Cardio

I do free weights, like Arm Curals (Mondays), work with an exercise ball with the abs (Leg pull ins and crunches, Wednesday), Bench Press and Leg Press (Friday), and stuff like that.

I still have a somewhat big gut, and I do try to do 5 sets of 25 crunches after every workout before going to the elliptical but are there things you would recommend as to how I can improve or is this a good start? Sometimes I work as a custodian as well so that's physical and I might not go to the gym that day or not because I get a lot of physical action at that job.

I've also downloaded an app that counts my calories and really forcing to make better food choices, like adding more fruits and veggies and green foods.

Thanks again for the advice.
Awesome! glad you found it useful!!
