IMHO there's no use of mixing steady state "aerobic" work with interval work unless your looking to improve cardiovascular efficeincy, which by the way could also mean you are improving fat burning effiecency. That's bad despite how it sounds. If your body burns fat more "efficiently" that means it'll use less of it. HIIT is your best bet for keeping muscle and losing fat.
Sleazy posted this HIIT Overview you should look at.
You'll need to post the specific exercises you are doing. I can't really tell but it reads as if your are doing one of those "girl" routines. Meaning leg extensions, leg curls, etc. Not the way to go at all.
Your diet will need work I think. I'll let the others tackle that since I'm on a perpetual "see food" diet. As far as your goals I think their realistic but "slow and steady wins the race" is probably the most successful philosophy to adopt.
My diet and workout
Thanks for the advice Eric3237. As far as my weight training I guess i'am doing "girl" routines, but i'am one. Do you have any routines in mind that would help?
Now if losing muscle mass is not a concern for you then check out PFSM.
But be careful, PFSM is designed as a crash diet. You will drop fat quickly, but you need to know what your getting into more info can be found at www.bodyrecomposition.com/forums
If you are concerned we need to increase your real food intake, and place the shakes around your workouts. The post workout shake should have high GI carbs (dextrose, malto, waxy maize) to replace your glycogen stores. This will up your carb intake, but i would only do this on weight training days, so it wont effect your fat burning. I would aslo up your fat intake, fish oil, nuts, seeds will give you good sources of healthy fats.
The other thing I would suggest, if your not doing it already. Is plan in cheat meals once or twice a week. This will keep you mentally stable, and give you something to look forward to. When you plan your cheats, you will be less likely to binge.
As for routines you still haven't posted the specific exercises do. It may be a simple matter of tweaking what you already do.
In terms of ready made routines I can't thing of anything better then HST if you are aiming at fat loss. Centered around compound (multi-joint) movements. Starting at a 12-15 rep range which is similar to what you are doing.
Somewhere to start:
HST Thread An overview of HST training in general/.
Hardgain's Journal HST circuit
You don't have to do as many exercises as they are doing. There is plenty of other stuff you can do.
I have my girl friend doing the HST workout with cardio and she loves it.
you'll have to teach me the secrets of getting a girl into the gym dave :biglaugh:
Erikag, even if you don't want to do a circuit style routine a simple full-body three times a week using mostly compounds and starting with higher reps is the best way to go for your goals.
