Well, I've successfully transitioned into the conditioning phase... doing lots of core work and my weights consist of 2 sets per exercise with lighter weight, more reps and lots of different exercises per muscle group... and of course lots of cardio... super lean, here we come.

i am in the gym 5 days a week too B. I usually go right after work and do a lot of cardio for about 45min-1hr. Then I hit abs pretty hard for another 15 minutes. Once I get that out of the way I hit the weight room... I am cutting right now still so i am being very careful to avoid bulk lifting. I try and focus on shoulders/arms/mild chest to keep it light

This coming from a long time lifter. Try bombing your quads once a month or so to make gains in the rest of your body.Your quads help to increase testosterone which will help build more muscle.

For the biceps We used to do curls with a 45 lb. bench press bar with as much weight that your first set you fail at 8 reps.then do what we called stripping.You load the bar with 5 lb. or 10 lb. weights and each set you have a friend strip off one plate while holding the bar then do another set til fail (should be 6 ) and so on until you can't lift the bar then get your friend to help just enough to keep it moving.You will have the mother of all pumps if you put all you have into it! Do that once every three weeks and you will grow.

+1... it is a helluva arm growing exercise for sure!!! just dont do it too often it will have the negative on your arms as well and they will stop growing if you do this too often.

as for stomach, the majority of that (if you have some gut already, as do I)is to really count fat grams on EVERYTHING you eat! Cut your calorie intake donw some but worry the most about fat intake vs carbs... if you have a fatty day in food make sure there isnt a lot of carbs, the carbs will make you retain that fat. If you just watch your fat intake a ton then you wont have to overly worry about the cals or the carbs, AND your energy levels wont drop from dieting. Eat clean foods like chicken,tuna, lean ham, ect. Start asap on correct crunches and reverse crunches... when you first start 10 will probably make you want to puke, it did me!, but keep at it after a week of doing them that sensation will stop. Just do as many as you can bear at first without making yourself sick, you will build up that tollerance to working that muscle. I started 2 weeks ago doing crunches every night and I could barely do 2 sets of 10 without puking. Now I hit up 1 set of 100 right as soon as I finish cardio, then do a few sets of 10 of reverse crunches, thats more than I want when i get that 2-3rd set of reverses done. that WILL cut down that gut... you w2ill notice the sides sinking in first leaving just a tad of a belly right dab on the front of your stomach, it will start going away pretty quick too soon after.

depending on your BF% will determine how fast you will see results and depending on how strict you go on your diet.

I spent the past 3 years not doing anything really important. Then I decided to get back into sports (especially boarding) and get fit around april of this year. So far I have lost weight to the tune of 45 lbs and working on 30 more before next year. What I want to do is incorporate more weight training into my current regiment, is there any truth to the hi rep low weight = lean muscle thing? I thought that the difference was in the diet during recovery. Also, is it easier to build lean muscle on as I lose or would you lose to goal and then focus on muscle building?

Diet is ALWAYS key.

Fuyu, from what I've noticed, I think the leanness will come over a longer period of time, but I've always read that there isn't much SIGNIFICANT truth. Either way, it doesn't hurt because at least you are exercising. I've noticed a distnct change in my endurance since I decreased weight and increased reps, which is EXCELLENT in my opinion.

Regarding your fat loss/muscle gains, it really depends on where you are physically. If I had a lot of fat on me, I'd want to drop a significant amount of that before I even thought of weight training because I'n not a lineman in football... I now prdominantly engage in board sports, which is what you want to do, and this means lean is where you want to be... flexibility, agility and athleticism. Stretching is also important.

Once again, diet is key... replace peanut butter with almond butter, white bread with whole wheat, even the kind with extra fiber... eat fish, chicken a lot and veggies. I eat a lot of fruits, but usually earlier in the day so I can burn the sugars throughout the day.

Basically, if I were you, I'd do a lot of cardio and minimal weight training if I wanted to lose 30 lbs. Work on your core as well... strength here is very important in general, but especially for board sports.

SbSpaz, if you want to lose gut, CARDIO!!!!
