Background- I’m 5’7″ and weigh 134 pounds. Im trying to figure out what works best for me. I want to lose some pounds and tone up. I feel like for my build, I have a lot of fat. I did an evaluation last year at the gym and my body fat content was high. What is this best way to burn fat?
I’m just starting up at the gym again. My problem areas are my lower sides/hips and stomach area and also my inner thighs. I don’t like running because it hurts my knees. I’ve been getting on an AMT machine (kinda like an elliptical) for 45 minutes but what else should I do? Is 45 min of cardio 5 times a week enough?? Should I do cardio first and then weights or the other way around?
Last year, I worked with a trainer. i did twenty 30 minute sessions (3 times a week). It was mostly weights and strength training and I didn’t see the results I was hoping for. I didn’t do hardly any cardio, though. I hate cardio 🙁 but I did find that I really liked the AMT machine so I’ll be using that every time I’m at the gym.
im sorry this is kinda all over the place. I’m kinda lost on this. I’ve always been pretty thin so weighing 134 is shocking to me. I hate the way I look in pics and I don’t feel sexy. I’m going to be getting engaged soon and the last thing I want is to look bad in engagement pics and on my wedding day so I’m starting now and making changes. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
