This article hits all the right spots!
As a self-confessed cardio junkie of many years, just in recent months I've incorporated regular weight training into my routine and am feeling the benefits of it.
I have always thought (along with many other people) that keeping slim was all about cardio, cardio, cardio.... but when I saw the weight dropping off but not liking what was left behind, I thought "This can't be right". After extensive research and some very good advice from SP, I realised that I'd seriously neglected my strength in order to just focus on the cardio.
So now I'm happy to say that my workout routine is a good mix of both, and it's great - I actually look forward very much to my strength workouts now, whereas before I made half-hearted attempts at it and felt I was wasting my time. Not any more!
