I'm 18 and I have a fairly fast metabolism. My main aims are to burn a bit of fat, and to build a lot of muscle. I've been working out at home, but recently joined a gym to make my workouts more serious and more varied.

Basically what I'm looking for is the optimal plan.

What I usually do: (in the following order)

-Have a meal/snack, usually more carbs than proteins and fat.

-Go to the gym

-Cardio for about 15-30 minutes (I might increase this, so I can increase my endurance and improve my fitness. Advice will be appreciated)

-Water, to keep me going, and a little bit of my protein shake.

-Workout (20-40 minutes).

Combinations:

-Triceps and Pecs (I find that my shoulders are worked as well. Should I keep a seperate day for my shoulders, or will this be enough? I have heard that people overtrain the deltoids because of pec/tricep exercises, and I don't want to overtrain. Advice appreciated.)

-Biceps and upper/lower back

-Legs and Abs

(Are my combinations good, or should I rearrange them? Which muscle groups am I missing out on? Advice appreciated).

Note: Protein shake taken at intervals during my muscle training.

-End of workout. Finish my protein shake, and make my way home.

-Wake up next morning and feel extremely sore. Boy, don't you love that feeling?


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd appreciate any advice (as you may have noticed), on my schedule.

The main things I'm looking at:

-should my cardio be before, after, or before and after? What kind of cardio am I reccomended to do, and how much? (Keeping my aims in mind)

-am I taking my protein shake correctly?

-are there any major flaws in my schedule?

-can I work the biceps and the back the day after the triceps and the chest?
