My gym routine
Ok so I am going gym 5 days a week. My gym does not have free weights but has nice Nautilus machines.
In correct order-
I do weights for my upper body for 40minutes. 12- 20 reps just one set.
Use Stairmaster recumbent bike for 40minutes at intensity 8-9. There is enough resistance...apart from cardio my ass and leg muscles get a decent workout as well.
Stairmaster step machine for 20minutes at intensity 8 for 20minutes
The steps machine + bike cardio results in me burning 400-500kcal.
After that I hit the machines again to do lower body. This I do for 15-20minutes. Again like upper body 12-20 reps.
When I get home I quickly do basic 2-3 dumbbell exercises and some push ups and pull ups for 10minutes.
Do you think I am on the right path? I have been doing this for 2 weeks and I can cope with it.
So to reiterate...I want to lower my BF and get more cut. I am not interested in bulking up and getting huge or anything. Just want nice definition. So an ideal goal for me would be something in this direction-
Questions I want answers for
Let's count today as start point (May 17th). If I keep up with my diet and routine then how much time will it roughly take for me to achieve the results I am looking for? 3 months...6months...a year?
Is it true that doing cardio on an empty stomach results in burning more body fat? Going gym on an empty stomach is no problem for me as I liek working out with an empty stomach. Just curios if there is any truth to the empty stomach gyme = more fat burning idea.
Is it true that one should not eat anything 2-3 hours before going to bed?
I take multi-vitamin pill every day and another 500mg B6/B12 tablet. Is this dangerous?
I will be 34 in few months. Is my body going to go into decline even if I eat healthy and go gym? I mean will I have to work harder and harder as I get older to stay fit?
