Default Help needed opinions please

Hello people,

Right this is my story and I would like opinions and any help...........

I am currently 25 years old and weigh about 15 stone, I am not fat, but I am a big guy all over (kinda like a new born with puppy fat). I am a very active person however I have decided that I need to trim up.

My schedule at the moment

Sunday - Football 90 mins
Monday - Football 60 mins
Tuesday - Gym 60mins
Wedsnesday - Gym 60 mins
Thursday - Football 60 mins
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Rest

I recently joined a gym round the corner from work and have been hitting this quite hard, plus they have a swimming pool which is nice. Anyway I find myself doing 20 mins intense running then just float from machine to free weights without having a game plane.

Right now here are my questions......

1) I want to cut in and become leaner what type of workouts should I be doing free weights and reps

2) is there any good web-sites I can use to understands exercises that you can do with free weights.

3) Should I be doing light weights and more reps or less reps an more weights.

4) Recovery, I see a lot of people drinking met RX after the gym and I was wondering what should a newbie take.

thanking you in advance for your help.

Rgds

ok ..you do an awfull lot of cardio based training already...but need more info...diet...is it good ..or full of prossesed foods...ie..burgers,piza...after football do ya pop in pub for couple beers? if you are carrying body fat with that amount of soccer,and gym somethings wrong with your calorie intake...as to gym when your their i would consentrate on basic lifts reps 10 to 15 per set..bit hard to tell you what to do ...if your gym has instructor get him to show you, or ask some big guys some advice ..they usualy dont bite
