take sometime and search through bobdybuilding.com perhaps for pre workouts..

I've been using gaspari superdrive before my workouts on those days that I'm dragging or going to go heavy. No jitters and no crash..creatine free also...

the fact that i don't take it religiously every workout is nice also so my cycle on/off time frames aren't as strict...

just need to find a pre wrokout that works for you, most you can find samples for at your local supp shop...I wanted something creatine free (as it messes with my stomach) and didn't make me feel cracked out...before superdrive i was taking a thermogenic (detonate, not detonate xt since the original formula was pulled from shelves), that helped with weight and appetite control and provided good energy for workouts (weights and cardio)

I'm excited to continue on my weight training and stopping cardio for a while. Finally my hard work is paying off! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one

Garage List
4-5 times a week, mostly cardio on a rowing machine... Sometimes I alternate days with some free weights, but not to bulk up.

Work out out 6 days a week, between lifting and running in the winter and lifting and riding in the summer. In the winter months i run about 15 - 20 miles a week and in the summer i ride about 150 miles per week.

Winter -
Mon- Push 3k Interval
Tuesday - 4/5 miles
Wednesday - Pull 3k interval
Thursday - 4 miles
Friday - Push 3 k interval
Sat - 5/6 Mile

Summer - same as above but i substitute running with Riding.

I used to a lot when I was in high school and college. Between track days and soccer. But now, I'll still workout just not in a gym setting. I'm so into the outdoors between running and mountain biking (enduro and downhill) that I refuse to go to any gym wasting my time with onlookers and utter boredom. I'd rather keep to myself in working out and have fun doing so with running, biking, using the weights I have at home, and dealing with my daily work activities in the construction field.

I do a circuit style workout 3-4 days a week and roll jiu- jitsu on occasion. Jiu- jitsu is much harder of a workout.

I always was fit as a young man. It wasn't for the ladies either since I been with my wife since I was 17. But 10 yrs ago I just stopped. And body went south real fast. Faster than a M3 hahaha.
Well now at 50 yr old I am doing it for health reasons. I lost 15lbs already and my goal is to lose 50lbs in one year. So got 35 more until 9/11 which is my Bday
Been doing cardio mostly but starting weights soon. I got to be careful since I have Ankylosying Spondylitis

after 3 years off I figured I'd start again starting Jan 1st 2014 .I have 2 years to get back in shape before I turn 40. I've been going 6-7 days a week. 25-30 mins on the treadmill then an hour of lifting. I'.m only 5'5" and went from 160 to 150lbs as of yesterday but my stomach still looks fatty.

Way to go. Getting back into it certainly can be challenging, and many can't sustain it, so congrats! I would suggest swapping your cardio and lifting though, with a 5-10 minute warm up before lifting. You want to save that energy for lifting, and I believe you'll get more burn post-workout too. There are some other reasons behind it, but I can't recall what they are.

5-10 mins. thats all? at 20-30 mins I'm already thinking i'm not doing enough because the majority of the time i'm walking at 3.5-4 mph and I do 9mph sprints every 3-4 minutes.

Yeah, 5-10 minutes for a warm-up is plenty to get your heart rate up and sustain it through your workout. You don't want to deplete your energy stores before going into a hard lifting session. Try upping the intensity of your warm up by increasing the incline and/or speed consistently every 30-60 seconds to get your heart rate up.

For straight up cardio sessions, you can try HIIT - basically going close to all out for 30-60 seconds, then walk (or rest) for a minute, then repeat for a total of 15-20 minutes. HIIT studies have shown great results for fat burn overall.
