Cardio is more important than resistance training.In fact, I do cardio every weekdays and resistance training just on Saturdays. Here is he best cardio routine: Mon-Swimming Tue-Swimming Wed-Basketball Thurs-Swimming Fri-Swimming Sat-Resistance training. 84
If your asking me why cardio is important,it is because cardio extends your afterburn effect wich helps you burn fat.Resistance training also has the effect but it only has little of that.So do cardio now.
I hit my first plateau after the first 15 pounds. I reassessed my calorie intake and my exercise routine. I adjusted my calories down about 100 to 200 per day. I added resistance training, and upped the mileage per week that I was walking by a half of a mile for my long walk, which is once to twice a week.311
I'm training for a 5K, so it was time to up my mileage anyway. 30
If so, build 5 lbs of muscle! It is estimated that every pound of muscle added from resistance training burns about 50 calories/day. Adding 5 lbs of muscle to your body will burn an extra pound of fat every two weeks, or 26 lbs a year.
