If your goal is to lose fat and gain a little muscle (which will aid in fat loss greatly) then I would suggest sticking with the HIIT or ohter interval training and try to improve on that. Forget the "run" unless it's interval running or something. I know people will look at all the different research protocols and suggest different but the bulk of the evidence, imo, suggests that higher intensity stop and go type activity is the better way to go. BTW, if someone tells you more fat is oxididized during steady state lower intensity activities keep in mind that this means a greater percentage of fat on necessarily more actual fat.

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.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Ok, the first thing that catches my eye is the lack of a set post workout shake. To me this means your hitting the weights, then your muscles are most likely going catabolic ... especially since your carbs are so low.

Now if losing muscle mass is not a concern for you then check out PFSM.
http://www.bodybuilding.net/nutritio...ties-1988.html

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.

That's my point exactly and the reason I put girl in quotes. There is no reason for a female to be doing only single joint movements other than that is what misguided personal trianers have them doing and being scared of "bulking up" if they use anything but the lightest weights.

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

Dave's Journal

You don't have to do as many exercises as they are doing. There is plenty of other stuff you can do.

You tell her she is fat and run into the gym and have the one of the staff lock the door behind her.

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.
