Hello I contacted a personal trainer on kijiji and I told him my goals (weight loss and some muscle) and he told me to do this weekly. I would like your opinion also.

Monday -- Chest and triceps(4-5 exercises each with 3 sets of 12 each)
Tuesday -- Cardio 30 minutes
Wednesday -- Legs and shoulders(4-5 exercises each with 3 sets of 12 each)
Thursday -- cardio 30 minutes
Friday -- Back and biceps(4-5 exercises each with 3 sets of 12 each)

And to eat a meal with 25-30 grams of protein with-in 1 hour of finishing the weight lifting.

Thanks for your opinion.

I'm not a trainer by any means, but it looks good to me. My one piece of advice is to add some carbs to that post workout. I read that from a Paleo eating site. I hope it's correct. My trainer says to eat a simple, small meal with either no or small amount of fat.

Looks like sound advice to me! I totally agree with the protein after your workout.

I've been using chocolate skim milk as my post-weight training snack. Or fat-free greek yogurt.

Sounds good to me too. That's basically what I'm doing with my trainer :)
