I thought I would post about how many people go into a gym and do things the wrong way round. I will leave it short, but the best way to lose weight (male or female) is to do some intense weight training...then! go on the cardio machines to finish off
Concentrate on the following three muscles
chest - back - legs
Burn them out then do cardio and you will have some great success
I prefer them on seperate days, if weight training is done correctly you really shouldn't have much in you left. Heavy lifting stimulates resting metabolism like intense cardio does such as HIIT, tabata etc.
Agreed it shouldn't have much left in you, we burn enough calories ourselves but we have people who want to do as muchas possible and have had terrific results performing 20-30 slow/medium cardio afterwards.
Either way, educating people not to just do cardio 3-4 times a week is great.. as in yo u mentioned, the resting metabolism which most dont realise
Would you say the same for someone (like myself) who is trying to gain weight? I'm struggling to keep weight on and I do lift first then cardio for only about 15 mins. I'm 36 year old male, 6' tall and I'm hitting 139lbs these days. I've been upping calories and using some Sunwarrior protein to help. It's only been a couple weeks and I've had no change.
