my routine

im doing frankie's 5 x 5 routine,going good after my first week,i do it tuesdays,thursday and saturdays.My question is this,my aim is obviously to increase my strength,but say 2 other days am i ok to do a 45 min cardio session? i want to try and lose a few pounds in my stomach,im quite happy with the rest of my body,its just my stomach that annoys me,im quite diciplined in what i eat,i just dont seem to lose any fat there.

Also if i dont ache the day after doing a workout,is this good or bad,i feel like im working to the max when im in the gym,just wondered what you thought.
cheers

    You should be fine throwing in abit of cardio bro, but if you're gonna bother - make sure your diet is spot on too. Some guyz don't ache after a workout, some can hardly walk! As long as you've given 100% in the gym, don't worry about the absence of DOMS.

    i must admit guys i find it hard to adjust to the recommended diet,but i think it will take time to get it into my routine,i do avoid a lot of crap though.

    When i do my pull day on the 5 x 5 routine,do you think only doing chin ups and barbell curls is enough for my biceps? i have really long arms and i find it tough to put on mass on my bis....its taken a good 3 years to put on 2 inches on my arms.

    The thing is your bi's won't grow out of proportion with your lats and back. Your body won't allow it! They'll get plenty of stimulation from those exercises as long as you're pushing yourself hard. Focus on adding weight with good form each week and you'll grow nicely, add in any bicep isolation work and you'll end up overtrained. Good luck bro.
