Need some help please guys...this could be a bit tricky!
I am a newbie to this site, and to whole weights way of exercising. Basically I would like to become lean, definded and then increase my muscle mass. I've be going to the gym for about 3 years and I've only ever done cardio workouts but I will explain why a little further in to the post.
I would like help with coming up with a great workout routine to achieve my goals. Help with changing my diet** again more about that shortly, and any suggestions with suppliments to help me reach my targets.
A little bit about me, as I am sure this bit would be crucial with my suggested diets. 3 years ago I weighed 22st, I am 5ft 6in so as you can guess I was basically a ball! I had weightloss surgery to help me lose the weight and as soon as I could I changed my eating habbits and exercised. That's why I've never done any weights and just cardio as I wanted to shift the weight. 3 years on I've got down to 10st 10lbs. There's still little bit of fat I would like to shift but I would like to increase my strength and muscle size and definition.
I exercise most days like walking, or going to the gym and using the treadmill, cross trainer and other cv equipment. I would be more than willing to try any exercise, increase the frequency of work out....basically I am willing to do anything. I will not just give up after a couple weeks as I am a dedicated to changing my body. I have no restriction of what I can do exercise wise so I should be ok to do anything.
My diet, I can eat anything, but I am limited to small portions though. If you can imagine I can only consume a portion to what a 6 year old would be able to eat. I thought this would be important so say as from what I've read on here and in other places diet is key!
I would very much appreciate any help, wisdom or comments you guys are willing to pass on. Of course I will keep all of you who have helped out informed on my changes too.
Thanks in advance!
