It sounds like youre on the right track and youll make great progress if you keep this up. Just keep pluggin away!
I am still hung up on cycling class...I don't know what that is. Does someone just get up in your grill and make you pedal faster?
sort of, they play music and give you a sort of story to follow, so you have uphill stretches, downhill, etc. so they set the pace for you to follow and keep motivation up
I guess that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.
they are a freaking brutal 1 hour torture session. includes cooldown and stretches too generally. we could have used spinning class in guantanamo bay to get answers
Imagine an aerobics class on bikes. But brutal like E said. The instructor is up front to pace the session and push you past what youd normally do on your own.
Yeah the ladies eat that stuff up, it seems it just kicks our asses. I think its some kind of strategic targeted revenge on guys by the cardio bunnies...
Ive never done aerobics either, I just watched it on espn2 when I was growing up. lol.
Wasn't able to get to workout last night as the gym was packed and my agreement was to never displace a paying guest. I will hit it tonight.
There is an interesting conversation going on with another thread regarding which is better for weight loss.. Cardio before or after weights. There seem to be a lot of opinions, but with the light weight training that am doing, is it really a concern for me at this time? Would one way benefit more than the other?
probably after is slightly better, but you are talking about relatively small differences - like i wouldn't expect the difference to add up to a pound of fat loss in 3 months. Unless you are a serious lifter lifting for strength.... in that case it has to be after, if you did cardio before you'd never reach the intensity for the 3 rep max sets
for me right now i'm doing cardio only on non workout days. I'm also on a carb free diet, and minimal calories as well. so if i tried to do cardio + workouts the same day, one or the other would suck royally
I have updated my weight on my progress chart to 286. That is roughly 12 lbs from where I started. I had mentioned before that there are two scales that I had been using, which are off by 10-15 lbs. I am going to use the one at home for the chart's sake, not just b/c it is lower, but I have more consistent access. That would have listed my starting weight at about 295-300 lbs. Both scales show a 12-15 lb loss since beginning this journey. Thank you for your continued support and here's to the next 15 coming off as quickly.
PS-you girls are so pitiful when it comes to your spinning class conversation...It's a good thing females give birth or we'd be going extinct.
Whatever. I read somewhere that it has to do with females having a more advantageous natural hip angle that makes it harder for men to do spinning. Kinda like how men just arent made for child birth, not made for spinning classes either.
