Heres my problem...
I have been lifting on and off for about 2 years now and want to stick to a 5 days a week schedale. My only problem is I have no motivation to continue this schedule for no more than 2 months.
Heres my weekly routine
Monday - legs
Tuesday - Arms
Wednesday - Back
Thursday - Shoulders
Friday - Chest
I do about 400 abs 7 days a week
I take about a half tablespoon of trac creatine 1/2 hour to work out then about 75 grams of protein after
I wanna get ripped, I need help
Anyone have any suggestions?
For training, I'm a propenent of staying heavy while you cut. It preserves muscle while you strip away fat. For your training schedule, I would completely reverse the order. I'll stick to the five day a week because that's what you want.
Another plan to consider is circuit training. Upper body one day, lower the next, and so on. This should keep the intrest level up and motivation to stick with it. For cardio, refer to one of my previous threads about Max-OT Cardio. An intense 16 minutes is better and more effective for stripping fat than 45 minutes worth of cardio.
About trac creatine. Those companies that have liquid creatine are in the process of getting sued because of making false claims. Creatine is NOT stable in liquid, it turns into creatinine which is useless. I'm surprised they are still selling it.
It's advisable to change/adjust your routine around every couple of months and review your goals. This will keep you from getting stale. I will generaly look a couple of months ahead and say, ok what is it I want to do. Cut/Bulk/put extra emphasis on this part or that and work toward that goal.
So then should I drop the Creatine?
If I decide to do the circuit lifting how many days a week do I do that?
How often should I do cardio?
What are your current stats? You say you want to be ripped but I don't know what your body is like.

I think I have a good start but I gotta keep going, just need some advice
worry about getting ripped. Your at a great age to pack on some serious muscle. Bulk up. You should read daves clean bulk in the nutrition section and then start lifting heavy.
One more thing to add that might help your motivation. I'd advise you to set a date to weigh yourself and take a bodyfat test. Make sure it's at least 2-3 weeks in between so you'll see a more dramatic result. For the natural bodybuilder, 1-2 pounds gain/loss per week is very attainable and something to shoot for.
Another question I have is how I should lift? How many sets and how many reps? I think I am going to go with 0311 work out plan
