To be honest, his primary focus should be some resistance training. Even if he can't lift heavy, he should still be lifting first & foremost. Cardio is beneficial to someone in his situation, but it shouldn't be the focus.

If he's limiting his carbs (which he should) in order to help cut bodyfat, then he's going to be running low on glycogen stores at some point. It's more productive to generate his strength & energy toward an intensive and explosive session of resistance training than any cardio (regardless of whether it's done in the AM or the PM).

Resistance training and the resulting muscle mass will be more progressive for his goals than cardio, in the grand scheme of things.

Cardio is the seasoning. Resistance training's the main course. Eat up.

Seeking help here. Don't shit all over me either. I'm a very demotivated person who has gone through a traumatic year - and would just like to know the eating patterns of some people on here, and what's a good startup for a beginner in terms of eating, exercise, fitness, cardio, weights, protein etc etc

It's pretty much impossible to pinpoint any sort of clear path for you without knowing your goals or where you're at now.

No one can give you directions if they don't know where you're leaving from or where you intend to go.

Any answer you'd get at this point would just be someone imposing their own ideas and goals on you.

Diet and exercise.

You can research your own diet. It isn't hard. For definite improvement, count them calories you ingest. Approximation will be enough as you should be consuming 20% less than what you'll expend. Desserts and sugar should be moderated as tightly as your will allows. Try and find healthier alternatives to everything you think is too loaded. Oats instead of cereal, wholegrain instead of refined, complex carbs instead of starch etc. Whatever helps you keep a good metabolism going. It's trial and error since your body will react distinctively.

Start off with some good steady state cardio (jogging, swimming, cycling etc). Around an hour each day (If you do decide to do more, might want to adjust your consumption so you don't get hypoglycemic/starved). You'll see easy improvement if you're just starting out. Once you've settled into the pace of things, experiment with HIIT (interval training) and circuit training. Add weights to your routines so you don't lose muscle mass (body weight exercises will work, depending on the intensity and technique).

Diet and exercise. Further doubts, ask.

Just after some opinions/insights on what/how everyone else does their exercise/fitness/working out in their gym/or whatever they have at home. Do you usually focus on one part of the body (e.g arms) in one day, or do you guys mix it up and try and balance out the body parts?

Also, how does this sound for eating? I've been doing it recently, it's not the same everyday, but here's a general plan I guess:

Breakfast:

Oates or Weatbix

Gym for 1-1.5 hours
- So far I've been focusing moreso on my arms and shoulders, while still doing some workout on my legs. I've also done other parts of the body, but no real set plan yet as I've only joined the gym this week.

After or during my workout, I drink a whey protein shake.

Lunch

Sushi Salmon Bento Box or Chicken wrap or Salmon Wrap (from a can)

Dinner

2 Wraps from the above

When home from work

Either bowl of fruit or another wrap.

What sort of exercises has suited you best for your arms/shoulders/legs/abs?

not gaining weight but staying steady although i haven't been at the gym as much as i'd like. cricket has been giving me some niggling injuries which make feeling like going to the gym a bit of a chore. like right now my hands are bruised right up and swollen atm which will take a day or so to come back down but they'll remain bruised for ages, still can't make a proper fist with my right hand due to dislocating a finger a couple of weeks back which means boxing is out (one of my favoured home activties), back is acting up a touch and my shoulder is ruined. getting back to it next week now that i'm completely done with uni for the year.


Kenny - as my goals in the gym are more centred on endurance rather than exercise i tend to do more cardio based activities although i do use cable machines for upper body work and occasionally some other machines. haven't done any bench pressing in ages due to fucking my collarbone up and i can't squat for shit. my form is absolutely awful.

generally do something like

a light warm up on either bike or treadmill.
cable machine - chest press
push ups on a bosu ball
rowing machine
bike machine
cool down on a treadmill

i'l change out the cable machine and push ups for seated rows and lat pulldowns depending on days and whanot.


feeling like an absolute chick at the gym really but with all the injuries and whatnot i'm trying to be able to work for a long time (which works well in my sports) and scale back the bulking/strength training.

what are you trying to work towards? (ie goals and whatnot)
