Fitness is full or 6 week transformations with before and after pictures showing different lighting and different angles.
Let's keep it real people!
Both of these pictures are taken at 6am on a Monday and over a year between the two. Results do not come over night and I'll be honest my change may look minimal. However if I trained purely for athletics I would have stopped training a long time ago! My current focus is to increase strength and put on another 4-6kg (mostly lean muscle ideally). I often vary my training throughout the year between weights and cardio and although it may ultimately affect my progress in one of those dimensions it keeps me interested, focused and allows me to really enjoy my training every week.
"I'll be happy when I'm 5 stone lighter"......Stop this! Find something you enjoy. The process is far more important than the outcome.
Happy Monday and go smash your week.
Cardio Vs Weights 🏋🏻♀️
Hi Everyone, happy Monday!
They say that if you start your week with a positive attitude, it's easier to get through it. So here we go, day 10 of MD Fitness Advent Calendar. Today I'm talking about a quite controversial topic - which one is better to do - cardio or weights training? I will compare both training styles and explain how are they different.
As you can see on the photos above, I have done a small experiment and performed 30min of weights training followed by 30min of cardio. From the first glance you can already see that the amount of calories burnt when doing weights was just a bit smaller than when doing cardio. To clarify, with resistance training I took breaks in between exercises and allowed my heart rate to drop. Then I did steady state cardio on a cross-trainer keeping my heart rate at the same level. My average heart rate when weight training was 120 and when performing cardio - 134.
In general the belief that cardio burns more calories is true (the difference is not massive though). Nevertheless, weights training has many more additional benefits that cardio doesn't. Increasing muscle mass will support fat loss and increase your BMR, as your body requires more energy to maintain muscle then fat. There are also many ways to progress with doing resistance training - increasing number of sets, reps, weight used etc (which helps you burn more calories) and when it comes to cardio all you can do is basically increase the speed or time spent doing exercise.
If all you want to do at this point is focus on fat loss, then cardio will be a good choice for you, however you need to understand that long-term it's resistance training that will bring you more benefits.
I would recommend incorporating both training styles in your weekly routine to get all the benefits - increased muscle mass, afterburn effect and cardiovascular endurance. That way you'll speed up fat loss and tone up your whole body thanks to the resistance training.

My girl first reaction being told to eating more and train with heavy weights to improve my hormones and health (something I haven’t done for a few years now) was hec no don’t want to get muscly again and freak out etc .. decided I should suck it up and said I’ll give it a go.. so a month now eating more carbs.. training more weights.. safe to say things are shaping up 😬💪🏼✌🏼
