What to do at Gym....

Postby sage » Thu Mar 12, 2009 4:05 pm

Hello all,
Just wondering how often people who go to the gym go and also is weight training every time you go
to much.
At the moment I try to go 5 times a week and have been doing weight training most days but although I'm looking tonned I
don't seem to be losing much, Oh and I try to do at least 40 min cardio as well.
What is the quickest way to lose weight at the Gym I realy want to know? Should i stop weights and more cardio?
confused.

Hi Sage,

Keep up the good work!

I always do my weight training before cardio. There is a very good reason for doing this. It is explained in an article I posted on this site. The article is called, 'The Best Way to Lose Weight'.

If you're doing weights are you still want to lose weight I suggest reducing your food intake slightly.

There is definitely no reason to do the weights less frquently. Some of the world's best figures (not physiques!) have been created through weight training. I highly recommend women to perform a regular weight training session at a gym. In fact, I wrote an article on this topic several years ago. I will dig it up and post it on the site. Hopefully some of the ladies find it useful.

Cheers,

Steve.

I go about 5 days a week (and run or walk on my days off). I used to do lighter weights more frequently but now I do a really strenuous weights workout one to two times a week (for about 45 mins). Apparently unless u really rip apart ur muscles (so u really feel it the next day) you won't do much, so I do heavy weights, more reps and 3 sets of each. Then, for the rest of the week, I focus on cardio. One step class, one body attack class, and two sessions on the cardio machines. Usually do abs and yoga streches about three times a week too.
That's on a good week hehe :) but the point is you should be really sore the day after ur weights.
To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are
