well, as you can see by the ticker - its time to get off my lazy ar$e & do some proper exercise to lose the KG's instead of doing the shake diet - sure it comes off, but it certainly doesnt stay off.. ergh.. anywho - this year is MY year to be taking care of me & the family can come second for a while!! LOL
I am starting to exercise at the gym, but as i have never been a serious exerciser, i'm not sure of the right process to facilitate the weight loss - IYKWIM
so, my questions are:
- is it better to do free weight training before or after a cardio session - or on different days completely?
- is it better to exercise, cardio or weight, before or after meal times? as in, do i go before lunch or after lunch.. does it make a difference?? I am only working 2 days a week, so i have heaps of time to get this done
- is it better to stick to the recommended target heart rate for my age/weight or if i can increase it, should i?? When i am on say the treadmill, i can easily reach my 'fat burning' heart rate & keep it there, but it isnt a challenge, i can still easily hold a conversation with the person next to me, if i up my heart rate above the recommended 'cardio training' target, thats when it is a challenge to me, but is that detrimental to fat burn??
any other advice/tips would be much appreciated
I am so clueless... LOL
