I would like to ask for your personal advice regarding “ 6 Day Weight/Cardio Cutting Workout” listed on www.muscleandstrength.com
For a general overview of my body history:
I had been obese in 2011; my body weight was 129 kg & height 184 cm. Four years later, I became 87 kg due to long lasting diet. I still have extra pounds, located on my belly and love handles.
Am looking forward to lose the extra pounds and gain a well leaned body because also I don’t have many muscles in body: thin biceps and bit stocky chest.
Therefore I found your program interesting, so I would like to know if your recommend following its instruction or get enrolled with other cardio oriented programs.

Up until my recent work related injury I trained at a Thai boxing gym. We use some dumb bells but mostly focus on pads, heavy bags, speed bags, HIIT endurance type training. Having broke my ankle requiring metal plates and screws, I would be optimistic to say it will be a few months before I can get back in the ring. I can put 0 weight on my left foot, but i can bend my knee. I also just got a gym membership in the hopes of maintaining my upper body and whatever else I can. Any insight on the best and safest exercises someone with a broken ankle could do?

Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a tight spot right now. I'm a Track/Cross Country runner in high school. This is my senior year and I've been training for nine months straight to go out with a boom this season. Well the downside is that I've been having foot and ankle pains for a little over a month. I've recently learned that the pain is from tendonitis and my doctor mandated that I sit out for a whole month, and the Track season has already started. I've accepted that, but I need help with a new temporary workout plan for my legs and lower back. I want to be able to come back and still be strong enough to catch back up in my training. I'm having troubles finding any leg workouts that I can do without putting any weight or strain on my ankle other than leg extensions and leg curls. If you could please help me I would greatly appreciate it. And thank you for your time.
Best Regards,
Trent

I recommend taking a look at some of the cutting routines available on the site: https://www.muscleandstrength.com/workouts/fat-loss

Focus on getting to your goal weight/body fat percentage. You can add some quality muscle mass without upping your body fat too much if you start with a leaner frame.

Hi , i have been training and changing workouts for almost 4 months but i haven't seen any results but my lifting weights just increased but no visual gains , i was hoping you could give me a workout plan but i'd prefer not to include deadlifts or squats or wide grip pull ups

I'd need to know a little more about what your goals are before I can recommend a specific program (i.e. build mass, cut weight). Your diet plays a huge role in the results you see as well, and I can be a bit more specific after learning your goals. Also, it's a good idea to stick with one routine as opposed to constantly switching between routines, especially if your form needs work. Proper form is as important as the weight you use in my opinion. 

Deadlifts, squats, and wide-grip pull-ups are typically at the core of any solid routine. They are fantastic movements in terms of increasing overall strength, and are particularly effective when it comes to building mass. I'd recommend that you keep them in a routine if possible.

You could take a look at this routine: https://www.muscleandstrength.com/workouts/4-day-maximum-mass-workout

There are some burn sets and static work, which you'll certainly feel. Remember to eat BIG! You'll need a calorie surplus to build muscle.
