    Hi everyone! Ive been going to the gym for about a year now off and on as Ive found myself unsure of exactly what i should be doing at the gym for toning muscle gain and general weight loss. I am not overweight but would still like to lose some. My overall eating habits are fairly good I guess im just looking for some guidance on a gym plan so that I know exactly what I am doing everytime i go to the gym like weights one day cardio next etc but some advice on reps and duration. Also some advice on clean eating as ive heard that is the best. Thank you! Hope none of that is confusing.

    This forum is extremely quiet these days but there are members who are very knowledgable when they're here.

    @hardcore, you still around?

    Hey bb

    I'm here, how are you mate? Crazy times yeah?!


    As for OP, I'd get on to an app like myfitnesspal and start tracking what you eat and the macro compilation. Results are 80% diet . Once you've sorted your diet out (start by cutting out sugars, simple carbs, take out, fizzy drinks, energy drinks), increase your chicken, tuna, lean meats, sweet potato, basmati or brown rice, green veg oats intake and eat regularly.

    Training, there are many free training programs online, Google begginer workouts. The key is you must have a plan before walking into the gym. You can not walk in not knowing what you are going to do.

    Right now, if you can't exercise, go for walks, runs, plyo in the park. There's not a lot we have control over ATM, but you can control your diet.

    I have that dilemma as well. I liked doing cardios the most but that won't get me anywhere. SO I gently switched to HIIT and that takes time but the result is amazing.. I did some intermittent fasting as well actually. Intermittent fasting is kinda tricky too because you have to find the right time to do it
