Okay so I have been trying to "train myself to make healthy decisions". I have to say I have been doing fairly well with a little slip up here and there. As far as my FastBreak goals I have been doing rather well sticking to those... I have stopped drinking regular soda and if I need to cheat it is diet or zero, we have been cooking at home eliminating eating out almost 90%, and I got a gym membership 4 days ago and have gone twice.
So my gym plan is:
- I will go after work on days that I work which is mostly 4-5 days a week.
- To eliminate over excercising I will not go on Sat or Sun
Get to the point right? ;)
So I used the workout generator on the site and I liked the Total Body Workout it seemed fun and easy to do. I added 7 minutes on the elliptical to start and get my heart rate up and I ended the workout with 10 minutes walking at 3.5 mph on the treadmill. I guess my question is a lot of what is in the Total Body workout is involving weights which I would assume would burn calories but also build muscle. I don't want to be bulky I am trying to lose weight.
The workout that I am doing is it possible to achieve or should I be working on a Weight loss routing instead. If so what would that equal? I am having trouble finding one with the generator. At this point if I had to create one it would be the elliptical, treadmill, bikes....
I am so confused so I am looking for all of the help I can get.
BELOW IS THE ROUTINE THAT I HAVE BEEN DOING:
1. Squats on Leg Press
2. Heel Raise on Leg Press
3. Single Leg Squats on Leg Press
4. Seated Chest Press Machine
5. Seated Row Machine
6. Seated Lat Pulldown
7. Seated Overhead Press
8.Seated Triceps Extinsion (actually haven't done cause I don't know which machine to use)
9. Preacher Curl Machine (Haven't done this one either)
10. Abdominal Crunch Machine
11. Seated Back Extension
12. Knee Raises on Captain's Chair
Most of these had a goal of 3 reps of 15 some I have not been able to complete but for the most part I have.
Thanks in advance!!!
