Lose weight faster than ever before. Ok, so we understand that exercise is an integral part of any plan to lose weight however there is always the inevitable question of what sort of work-out will work best to supplement your diet. There are probably just as many different exercise theories as there are diets to choose from. Once you decide that you need to exercise you must also decide what your goals are in exercising.
Goals are the most important aspect of any diet or exercise routine. If you don’t set out to accomplish something you can easily become bored or frustrated with it after only a short time. There are always people who say that to lose weight faster you should only do cardio workouts (i.e. running, swimming…). Others tout the benefits of a purely weightlifting workout.
My personal opinion is that a balanced combination of both cardio and weightlifting.

DAY 1 (30-60 min)
DAY 2 (30-60 min)
DAY 3 (30-60 min)
DAY 4 (30-60 min)
DAY 5 (30-60 min)
DAY 6 (30-60 min)
For the weightlifting portion of this I recommend depending on your goals sticking to a 4 sets of 8-10 reps. This amount of reps and sets will help your body to better burn calories and create lean muscle which will help increase your metabolism thus helping your body to better dispose of eaten calories.
The cardio portion of the workout should be your opportunity to pick an exercise that you enjoy, sort of a break from the workout. However, it is important for you to find an activity; be it biking taking a walk/a run, playing basketball, whatever. The important thing is to have an activity that increases your heart rate and helps you take a break from the grind of weightlifting.
Anyways the most important part of any workout is for you to have a goal and find a way to keep yourself motivated. Keep repeating this every week for the best results!
