Should i lift heavier weight?
Fitnessbabe wrote:^^ You are right about everything except the cardio bit. It is 2-3 days to maintain your weight, to lose (like stacey wants to) you have to carry out cardio 4-5 times a week no matter how you eat.
Fitnessbabe wrote:Yes everyone has different goals! I was just going by what Stacey said her goals were and one of them was to lose weight from around her middle, to do that you would have to do cardio 4-5 times a week or 3-4 weeks to maintain the weight you are now. If stacey wanted a six pack well then thats another matter and she would be best as you said to strength/weight train.But even then its all very well to build your stomach muscles up but your never going to see them if you have a layer of fat there are you? Anyway im sorry if I offended anyone I am just giving advice on what i learn when im in classes, sorry again

I just had a baby on Aug. 31. although I am very skinny, my belly is very soft and "hangs down" when I bend over. The back of my thighs and under my arms are "jiggly" and I have no muscle tone.
I started going to the gym last week and I do cardio every time I visit (4-5 days) and have started to use some of the machines (the trainer told me I should not start out with free weights)
I do not have a training partner, and i am wondering if I should use a heavier weight and low reps, or light weight and more reps?
Weight now: 116 height 5 ft 7.
I want the muscles in my arms and legs to be noticeable when not flexed and my rear tight.
