    Wanted to go five rounds, but started getting pretty fatigued and didn't want to reinjure the back. Active rest tomorrow.

    Has anyone heard of the HughesFIT Blast Training? A friend of mine found this book, I wanted a change so I did one of the leg workouts. I can honestly say I have not had a workout like this in a long time. What a great changeup.

    Barbell Squats: Increasing weight with each set: 135-20, 145-15, 155-12, 165-10, 175-10, 185-10, 195-10
    Dumbbell Lunges: Done 15 reps each leg for a total of 3 sets: 30-15, 20-15, 20-15
    Leg Extensions: Increasing weight each set, hold each rep and squeeze at top: 15, 12, 12
    Laying down Leg Curls: Increasing weight each set, work the negative: 15,12,12
    Leg Press: Use moderate weight, take as many sets as possible to complete 75 total reps: 32, 30, 16

    I added:
    Standing Calf raises - 2 sets
    Sitting calf raises - 2 sets
    6 sets Crunches (4 Machines, 2 Rope Pull Down)
    4 sets of pull-ups (2 shoulder width, wide, close)

    I can't sit down at my desk at work....legs shaking

    So I actually have a question but don't want to start a new thread so thought I'd post in here, hoping someone can help me out?

    I have a pretty sedentary lifestyle, uni student & desk job. I walk to uni which adds up to 2.5hrs walking per week, but other than that I have to rely on the gym for activity. (Can't walk to work cause it's literally 17km / 11miles each way & anyway my timetable wouldnt allow it because I start work shortly after finishing uni :P)

    I go to the gym 2-4 times a week, lately it's usually 4 times. My weekly routine is normally something like:

    Sunday (leg day):
    50 mins cardio (150bpm or lower ~75% max heart rate)
    Leg press (3 sets of 3x12)
    Calf raise (3 sets of 2x20)
    Leg extension (3 sets of 3x12)
    Leg curl (3 sets of 3x12)

    Tuesday (Arm/chest day):
    50 mins cardio (150bpm or lower ~75% max heart rate)
    Bicep curl (4 sets of 3x15)
    Lateral raises (2 sets of 2x12) (only because I'm so shit at them and literally can't do any more lol)
    Chest press (3 sets of 3x12)
    Tricep cable pull down (3 sets of 3x12)

    Thursday:
    1 hour cardio (150bpm or lower ~75% max heart rate)

    Friday:
    1 hour cardio (150bpm or lower ~75% max heart rate)


    In the future I plan on having a stomach/back day but not for another 10-20lb lost or so.

    Basically, all of my exercises involve dumbbells or machines. This is because of a few things, and won't be changing for the next wee while, but in the future I plan on doing body-only stuff like what Mark suggests.

    My question/s is/are sort of vague, but am I doing too much cardio? I don't want to go to the gym more than 4 times a week. I feel like the cardio is necessary though because my basal metabolic rate isn't that high and with my sedentary lifestyle it's hard to burn calories any other way. I'm trying to make exercise more of my lifestyle e.g. asking friends to go for walks in the weekend etc but I'm basically at the maximum point for what I can incorporate into my daily life.
    Secondly, the resistance exercises I'm doing... are they good for women? Lol I feel like that's a stupid question but honestly I get overwhelmed when I google various exercises and really don't know what ones would suit someone like me. I have picked these ones based on ease of technique because I'm not exactly a graceful swan and barbells and other more complicated things tend to leave me sore in not a good way.

    If anyone can offer some advice that'd be great. Keep in mind I'm a beginner and a female so honestly don't try and explain anything overly complicated because I'm too shy in a male-dominated gym to try anything fancy any way, as lame as that sounds. I am pondering having a PT session once a week mainly for technique and motivation, does that seem like a good idea?
    Current weight lost: 82.9lb (37.6kg)

    Current PRs:
    Bench: 45kg/99lb
    Squat: 100kg/220lb
    Deadlift: 120kg/265lb

    Leaving tomorrow for a 65 mile four-day hike through Central Oregon (McKenzie Pass to Timothy Lake, if you know it). Goat Rocks wilderness in Washington was my original plan but apparently it's all under snow still.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Yes, yes &...yes. PT once a week for at least 2-3 weeks possibly more, might be just the thing to sort you out....
