Training tips please

Hi all, I was wondering if you could take a look at my training schedule as below and give me any ideas for improvements? Feeling quite positive at the moment - lost 1 and a half lb this week, seems to be going at a nice steady rate so hopefully it's all just fat!!

Monday - 1 hour of cardio, 30 minute run to the gym, other 30 made up on bike, cross trainer and rower, depends how i feel. Try to keep it steady for max fat burning.
Tues - Personal trainer,we usually do some interval training first on treadmill , a bit of bike and cross trainer - varys depending on what he wants me to do. Then half body weights, i.e back, legs and biceps. 12 reps max, trying to build up weight (example weights, I can incline press 12kg with a spot, 10 on my own, squat 60kg comfortably, curl 6kg, push down 30kg, one arm row 16kg)
Thurs - interval cardio on tradmill, bike, cross trainer, usually about 20 - 25 mins, half before and half after weights, then the other half of body not trained, i.e chest, shoulders (which I hate!!) and triceps (my favourite!!)
Sat - Approx 50 min cardio, i.e. road run, cross trainer. Then a quick full body circuit with about 3 sets of two exercises per muscle group. If I just go out for a road run then I skip the weights as not at gym.

Each session I do abs, even if indoors.

What do you think? Any ideas gratefully accepted, I feel like I'm toning up nicely but want to keep making progress or I'll lose motivation, suppose we all do ey?

Cheers everyone!

    I'd say if you're feeling good and achieving what you want to achieve, just stick with it..! It looks like you're doing well seeing that steady fat loss. The only difference might be to do a three day muscle part split, rather than a third 'all over' day ..maybe in time you might want a more structured schedule rather than doing what your trainer chooses, but as long as it's working, keep going!

    Thanks. I think I'll stick with this for a few more weeks and if I stop making progress change things round a bit.

    I'd say it would depend on what your goals were on how you were doing.

    not to sure about the cardio before and after weight lifting as this may seriously hamper your progress, if doing cardio before you are sapping a lot of energy, you wont have a lot left for training..especially if you finish with cardio again afterwards..
    just my thoughts
