Question and Answer with Sue Fleming


Finding Time for Strength Training
Q: I'm going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding soon. I already try to do at least 20 minutes of cardio each day (at least 5 days a week), and two or three of those days I do 45 minutes to an hour. I really want to tone up, though. How can I work in strength-training exercises without cutting back on cardio?

A: It sounds like you're off to a great start with your own Buff Bridesmaid Challenge! For most people, fitting in the cardio aspect of the workout is the hard part. It seems as if you've mastered that! You do want to make sure, however, that the aerobic exercise you're choosing raises your heart rate into your target heart-rate zone. This will allow you to get more out of your workout for maximum fat-burning benefits.

I would suggest fitting in the strength training portion of your workout on the days where you are keeping your cardio to 20 to 30 minutes. On shorter cardio days, focus on toning three or four different muscle groups such as chest, biceps, core and quads. The next session, work on your back, triceps, butt and calves. Regardless of what area you focus on, keep your workouts to about 45 minutes long. On the days you do 45 minutes of cardio, skip the weight training.



Back and trying to stay on track.
