please help

hi all,
i need some help with my training,
i've got BF% of around 16% at the mo. i want to get that down to about 13-14% in the next 7 weeks because i'm starting my third cycle then and i'm not happy with going into the cycle with this amount of BF, this is my proposed weeks training.

monday:-
morning - 20mins on the bike (65% max heart rate)
15mins on cross trainer.
evening - chest and biceps (not worried about muscle right now so wont go into detail)

tuesday:-
morning - 10mins rower, 20mins bike.
evening - legs and abs.

wednesday:-
OFF

thursday:-
morning - 20mins bike, 15mins cross trainer.
evening - back and traps.

friday:-
shoulders and triceps

i may do more cardio on saturday but very little.
any suggestions at all would be great.
is this too little? too much?
cheers

    Maybe look into doing some HIIT cardio. Check it out on the Cardio section sticky. Will allow you to loose fat and maintain muscle if done properely.

    This looks fine to me, although I would definitley stick in a fourth session. I'm wondering though that you might get a little bored with this sort of cardio. Have you considered HIIT at all?

    sounds fine though I'd probably get a good hour or two very low intensity cardio on your rest days (i.e moderate paced walk). The most important element to cosider through all this is going to be your diet.

    Do HIIT a couple of times a week, and 2 or 3 other cardio sessions a week (running is the best for burning cals).

    All the above will be wasted if your diet aint spot on though. Aim for low GI carbs, and total cals of 500 below maintenance (roughly 12 x body weight in pounds).
