I would definitely recommend doing weight training as well, don't worry about trying to hit max weight, just to lots of reps and at least 3 sets for each exercise, and hit every muscle group throughout the week. Yes muscle does way more than fat, but in the end this will help you shed those pounds your planning on losing. Getting both lots of cardio and weight training in will help you lose the weight quicker.
Also, diet plays a HUGE part in this, you need to reduce the intake of sugar, and carbs, and possibly increase the protein intake a little to help grow them muscles. Eating healthier and watching your numbers will do wonders when trying to lose weight.
WIsh you the best of luck on this Lightfoot, it is never an easy road, but its so worth it in the end!
Thanks, man. Yeah, I did hit the weight machines today and did upper body. I'm gonna be hurting in the morning, I'm sure. I plan on doing cardio AND weights six days a week and resting on Sunday.
Diet is actually covered. The 21-day Fix is all whole veggies/fruits and whole grains. No processed sugars, no added anything. There are some things like oils we can use sparingly, and we have a list of freebies that we can use. Tobasco and Spicy Mustard are on that list, and I couldn't be happier.
I've lost 4 pounds on diet alone thus far, and I expect to ramp that up once I start doing more exercises.
