Excercise Regimen Suggestions

Hey guys.  I am wondering what type of excercise regimen everyone is doing.  Are you only doing cardio or also circuit training.  Just curious as to what everyone is doing.

Hey Priscilla.  I am a 43 year old male who is still overweight but am making significant progress with a diet and exercise program.  I eat a high protein-low carbohydrate diet and have an extensive exercise program that I follow.  

The exercise program I follow is to build muscle, and I alternate between high weight and low reps, to low weight and hig rep cycles.  Along with my daily lifting routine, I manage to get at least 30 minutes of cardio on either the treadmill, elyptical trainer, stair master, or exercise bike, and quite often I will get 30 minutes on one machine and 15 on another.  Between switching from a hi-rep low weight routine to a low-rep hi weight routine, I concentrate on a circut routine for about 2 weeks at a time.

Changing the routine allows me to not get bored with the same routine and I think has allowed me to reach some of my weight loss goals quicker.  This also has had a positive impact on my body mass index.
