comment Is it necessary to use different types of cardio machines?
What are your goals? That is, why are you doing cardio? General health? To burn calories? To improve fitness for some sport/activity?

comment strengthing and improving flexibility in heels
@Jared: if you're on the routine, get the book and read it. It's worth $30 and a few hours to make sure you spend the next several months/years doing things correctly. There are many "problems" with your squat: not going deep enough, pausing at the bottom, not keeping your weight on your heels, not driving up with your hips, improper arm position, and more. Reasons for these likely include the wrong understanding of squat mechanics and possibly not enough flexibility. Read the guides I posted, start from scratch, record each lift and keep working on it till it looks like the pictures above.

comment Should I train all muscles or concentrate on some muscles in each session?
What are your goals? Strength? Size? Athletic performance? How experienced of a lifter are you?
