Weight loss is primarily about diet- Have you heard the phrase, you cannot out exercise a bad diet? Or, Abs of steel are made in the kitchen? Both of those things are true, but fitness is an important part of being healthy.
Generally, 2-3 days per week for strength training. Cardio at least 2-3 days per week, for 20+ minutes a day. Make sure you increase the intensity or difficulty level so that you continue to make gains. Following this idea, that would give you a week that looks like this:
On my ST days, I always do some cardio after I train- Usually walking or elliptical for 20-30 minutes. You don't have to do it that way, but I like it and I have a focus on heart health, which cardio is a big part of.
There are members out there who can give a much more in depth explantaion, maybe one of them will weigh in.
Best of luck.
There are no elevators in the house of success.
