Something about strength training that makes me feel so energized......
I just love it!
This link below is a great article on strength training vs cardio. I just love this article because I get so many people that just want to "blast the fat" with cardio training. Who wants to be a skinny fat girl? I mean all cardio will just make you look the same, only smaller. When you add strength training, which includes using your own body weight you get massive results. They feel its not WORTH the time investment, nothing could be farther then the truth. You can actually change the shape of your body with weight training.
Don't get me wrong, I love a sweaty cardio session but it has its place. Don't use it just for guilt, because you ate incorrectly the night before. The body just does not work like that, and you have to understand that its more then a math equation of cals in vs cals out.....ITS A SCIENCE.
So get energized with a good strength training program.
