I don't know if you are still on here or not, but basically you want to work your entire body. More your bottom then your top, because it release more natural hormones.

When you build it, you want to make sure you don't workout the same part when it is still sore. My workout right now for example,
mondays are squat, tuesdays are upper back and shoulders, wednesday is biceps (an off day, I just have to get a lift in), thursday is bench, and friday is deadlift with saturday and Sunday as rest days. So four days on, three off.

See how I workout my whole body yet nothing is ever tired when I need to use it again?

Hello there. Just like Sergio I need some advice, I have recently in the last 5 months dropped some 20 kilograms and went down from 90 kilos to 70 however I have a lot of flabby belly and puppy fat remaining. All I need is to tone a bit but I don't really have the time to go to the gym.

What are some good home exercises to tone belly and thighs mostly?

Abs are cooked in the kitchen.

Thighs will help from squats, and any leg exercises. You need to have time to exercise your legs. Even walking, jogging, biking, in combination with a transformation to your diet. You should shed the weight pretty quickly.

The only way to trim fat and tone up is through nutrition and cardio. You should certainly not neglect your weight training, but you will need to be diligent in getting in about 30 minutes of cardio 4 or more days per week and limiting your calories until you have rid yourself of the excess fat reserves. Hope this helps.

Agreed. Abs are all diet.

For someone on a fresh start, if you can, do one body part a day over 5 days. Legs are better in the beginning of the week (see above post). Alternate between big muscle groups and small each day.

3 day split is also very popular in two ways: push, pull, legs or counterparts (bis/tris, back/chest)

You can start out with basic stuff like pushups, pullups and situps until you learn some weight lifting exercises. These are actually some of the best exercises for you and you can even do them at home...

Thanks for your answers, im currently training on monday chest and triceps, wednesday back and biceps, and friday legs and shoulders. Does the order matters?

IronandIvory 06-13-2011 03:19 PM

Umm, not really. Not for your purposes. A lot of people do legs early in the week because it naturally boost test for the rest of the week. I wouldnt worry too much about it.
