If I were you, I would cut down on the machines and start using handweights instead, because then you get to use the supporting muscles as well, which tend to be isolated from the workout when using machines.

You're right. But if you're lifting weights to get more toned, then it would be better to simply do cardio and then weight train on seperate days.

By doing the way he has, he's not getting the better of either world. He's fatiguing his muscles but they're not growing enough due to the high volume and low resistance. And then while he is getting some form of cardio from his high-rep workouts, it's not as much if he was simply running.

He would be better off doing cardio on separate days and then hit the weights in between.

I've also read some excellent articles that shows doing 3 sets compared to 1 or 2 isn't necessarily more beneficial. In most of these studies they've found that subjects that only performed 1 set for each exercise compared to 3, grew just as much as the '3' group.

Rest is the biggest key. Rest at least 2-3 minutes in between each exercise. Rest is what builds muscle. The more rested, the stronger the muscle recovers and rebuilds. That's why doing the same body part twice a week is frowned upon.

I didn't read any other post other than the first one, but if you are trying to get rid of love handles, everything I've read online has said the only way to get rid of this is to do cardio (run, etc). Any of those ab machines, including crunches, will strengthen your abs, but if you have fat in the way, they won't show.

Most people who just start off with HIIT will barely be even able to handle 5 minutes, let alone 45-60 minutes of it. But yes, HIIT would be a good start to losing weight; and yes, it will suck.

most of your success in bodybuilding is attributed to diet.
alot of these workouts mentioned will work with a good diet.

if you have a relatively slower metabolism make sure u dont eat carbs a couple hours before bed, make sure u eat fats, don't shy away... but don't go to town with them aswell lol. (aslong as they are good fats.... peanut butter is good... -protein+fat). Keep your cals to a certain amount each day and be consistant. Drink protein shakes, and try to get about 150g of protein per day. Drink water, and rest.

Anyone who performs HIIT training for more than 15 minutes is asking for punishment.
HIIT is specifically designed to be harder and shorter than regular cario workouts.

It's usually good to mix up the two. HIIT twice a week and then regular running or cardio another 2-3 times a week.

Heck, just try to sprint 100 meters more than 4 times with a minute rest inbetween runs. You'll be on the ground staring at what you ate the day before.

Like Lars said, eat a lot more.
Try to consume 2:1 ratio of protein to body weight.
So if you're 120, eat 240 grams of protein a day. At the very minimum, eat 150 grams.

On top of that, lift heavy weights and as soon as you hit 6 reps per exercise move up in weight.

Don't perform cardio 8 hours before or after lifting. It will eat up muscle for energy. Try to do your cardio on off-days.
And HIIT training is far better to retain muscle than typical long-distance or long winded cardio.

You'll gain in no time.
