Dear People of JEFIT,
I am a 16 year old live on the northeast. Recentley I have started trying to lose some fat and gain some muscle. Im fairly tall (6 foot) and weigh about 140. This might seem really skinny (and that is what i am usually called) but I spent too much time in front of the computer and a have a pretty flabby stomach and obliques. I wanna lose this and basically just get in good shape. I've started to eat a bit healthier and I am 1 week into my workout routine. My routine is as follows:
Mon: 2-3 mile run in the morning (about 9-10 min miles right now)
Tues: 2-3 mile run in the morning (about 9-10 min miles right now)
Weds:go to the gym and do bench press - sit-ups- upper body pull machine - legs machine - curls - water break. (and repeat for about a total of 25 mins gym time.
Thurs: 2-3 mile run in the morning (about 9-10 min miles right now)
Fri: 2-3 mile run in the morning (about 9-10 min miles right now)
Sat: same gym routine... slowly upping the weight when i can
Sun: rest day
Is this optimal to lose fat (especially from the stomach) and gain muscle?
Thanks so much for your input!
p.s. these capchas are ridicouous
