Any thoughts on how I should incorporate weight training and running into this weekly tennis schedule? I'd like to add ~ 10 lbs of muscle and keep in decent running shape for 5 - 10 miles.
Well this is my routine:

-morrning: weight training-chest and triceps
-evening: tennis

-morning: weight training-back and biceps
-eveining: rest

-mornings: cardio training-stationary bike for 40 minutes
-evening: tennis

-morning: weight training-legs
-evening: rest

-morning: weight training-shoulders
-evening: tennis

-morning: cardio-run 1 mile
-late morning: tennis

-morning: cardio-eliptical machine for 40 minutes
-late morning- TENNIS!!!!

Note: I do stomach exercise everyday.

This routine helps me stay fit and helps me out last my tennis opponets. I'm only 5'-10" and weight 195, and my body fat is 11%.
