Ok.. here is a good routine.. I think that you can try. I like that you split your routine for upper body and lower body, that's probably all you need to split it to. Keep the same schedule but try this regiment.

Upper body

Start with Pulldowns or barbell rows ( i like to switch them every other work out ), then go to Bench Press or Dumbbell press (inclined or flat, it's personal pref), then do military press.
3 exercises and you are done, go home and be happy.

Lower body- Legpresses, squats or hack-squats.

Whoa.. that's it, 1 exercise.

Do Abs every other day or as often as you'd like. Do not work them while they are sore though, because that means that they haven't completely healed and recovered from the last session.

Oh.. how many sets and reps of each exercise? 3!! Three is all you need to do. Do 6-8 reps in each set. Make sure you are warmed up first, and then load as much weight as you can handle and do 6-8 reps with.. If you do 8 reps, then you didn't have enough weight on there. Also, try to power through your movement.. try not just to get the wieght to it's destination, but try to get it there fast (but don't jerk it keep good form).

You'll find that your sessions will last 30minutes or less, and that's ok. Your goal is not to work harder, but smarter. What you are trying to do is stimulate your muscle into growth, not tear it up and destroy it so that it will rebuild bigger and stronger.

This regiment has worked on everyone that I have convinced to train this way, even veteran bodybuilder/ powerlifters have benefitted from this type of training. This type of training is inspired from "Blood and Guts" by Dorian Yate's, 5 time Mr. Olympia.

Ken Ken Ken, mate... I am still 14, will doing this sort of system possibly damage my body or stunt my growth? Or can you definitely say it won't do any harm?

Also, please explain what the following are:

Pulldowns
barbell rows
Dumbell Press inclined and flat
Legpresses?
Hack-squats?

And with 3 sets, would that mean the following..

1 set of Pulldowns, 1 set of bunch press, 1 set of military press, then a rest before repeating?

I hope he answers, there's a few things in that list I didn't know.

Um..what was I going to say..oh yeah, SKIPPING.

Skipping is a good way to burn fat from your thighs, just as many and as often as you like.

Also, squats...in some scientifical research thingybob, it says that squats are the best way to burn fat from your thighs.

But I suppose with all that panicking you're doing waiting for a response from Ken, you'll be burning enough anyway...

Just kidding...
