I messed up the last topic title. I'm 5'3", approx. 146 lbs., and female. My goal weight is 120 - 125 lbs. Check out my training log to see what I eat daily and approx. amt. of exercise. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?p=51881010 My question, however, concerns lifting mainly, in addition to cardio. I should say to begin with that I am out of shape and my upper body strength sucks. I have a routine written down weekly. I'm basically going the same weight routine as my husband, only with lighter weights. I only just started today, so I only know about how much weight I need for these two specific exercises. I found after completing them with the weight mentioned that I need to up the curls to approx. 7.5 lbs. per side and the presses up tomaybe 15 lbs. total. Please find my routine posted below. In addition, I want to try to do 30 mins. of jogging on the treadmill per day: MON --- ARMS Dumbell Kickback 4x12 ARMS Dumbbell Curl 4x12 ARMS Dumbbell Hammer Curl 4x12time. ARMS Dumbbell Wrist Curl 4x12 ARMS Dumbbell Reverse Wrist Curl 4x12 ABS Weighted Crunch 5x25 TUE --- CHEST Dumbbell Bench Press 4x12 THIGHS Dumbbell Squat 4x12time WED --- ABS Weighted Crunch 5x25 ABS Weighted Twisting Crunch 5x25 ABS Dumbbell Straight Leg Deadlift 4x12 BACK Dumbbell Shrug THU --- CHEST Dumbbell Bench Press 4x12 - 10 lbs - need more weight ARMS Dumbbell Curl 4x12 - 5 lbs. each - need more weight FRI --- ARMS Dumbell Kickback 4x12 ABS Weighted Crunch 5x25 Should I be doing more/less per day in addition to the cardio?
