So maybe you have been searching the internet for a while listening to Tom, Dick & Harry spout this and that about how to lose weight in 10 days. It can get you demotivated constantly applying mis-information and nothing working. I am happy for you that you have found this blog and website because we will help you because strength training is the best way to lose weight and keep it off.
Quick Weight Loss Plan
Work with weights 2 days a week and do cardio 3 or 4 days a week. By doing this simple plan you work your muscles the right way. You MUST log all your workouts and you will be amazed with the results.
This will result in you working under 60 minutes a day and only 4 or 5 days a week. Each set of your weights should be between 10 and 15 repetitions depending where you are at. Your cardio plan should be a mix of interval training and fast paced walking(which should include some running) either treadmill or actual walking, both are fine. One last thing you could use is a stability ball.
All of this equipment would be easily less than $200 and you would start seeing results pretty quickly.
So Remember -
You will create a nice layer of pure muscle which will create a beautiful lean toned body.
The more muscle that you have the more calories you will burn, this means the more calories your body uses the more weight you lose!
Don't Forget To -
Check your fitness levels.
Work your body, each muscle must be worked at least a couple of times a week.
Set your initial repetitions high and try and up them.
Set yourself realistic goals.
Keep a diary of a every workout.
You have got to keep going, DO NOT GIVE UP!
