    I'm female, 5"2, 7st 3, with a small frame, but I tend to put weight on around my middle. I go to the gym regularly but I'm not sure what I'm doing is enough for what I want to achieve. I do around 40 mins of moderate cardio altogether (in a circuit, on elliptical, bike, rowing machine) and then work with free weights, bicep curls, chest press and do some body weight exercises.

    I know diet is going to be a huge part of this as well, should I be eating a bit more than I usually do, if I want to achieve the muscle definition? My diet at the moment isn't bad but I'm trying to get some more protein in it. Should I be doing cardio and weight training on different days instead of mixing them in a circuit? Are there any really good back/arm exercises that might be useful either with weights or on the machines?

    Sorry if I sound like a complete novice. I've been reading a lot of different things about how to approach this and am a bit confused and would really appreciate any advice!

    Eat like a grown up- you know what's good and what's bad for you. Eat right 90% of the time. No need to complicate it any more than that.

    Get stronger- lift heavy things in a productive manner, barbell squats, deadlifts, presses and rows.

    Stay in shape- do sprints/push a sled/run up a hill a couple of times per week and try to walk a decent distance every day.

    There you go.
