It's been a
while, and the same questions keep coming
up. Why can't I just do cardio and diet?
Won't weight training make me big and
muscular? Isn't weight training for body
Actually, cardio and diet without weight
training can burn muscle, and in many cases
increases body fat due to the burning of
muscle and the lack of knowledge of HOW to
eat when doing cardio. Classes, treadmills,
running, etc are all cardio. I've seen too
many people do cardio and classes and drop
their calories so low they actually gain
weight and fat.
How can you gain weight when you do so much?
Here's one reason. When you eat, your body
stores 1 molecule of carbohydrates and 3
molecules of water. When you don't eat
properly when you're doing classes and
cardio, your body goes into starvation mode.
It's not getting enough calories, and proper
calories for the crazy amount of activity
it's getting. So, you're body starts storing
3 molecules of carbohydrates and 9 molecules
of water. It stores triple the amount
because it needs it for survival. You've
just increased the storage. You've increased
your fat!! When you begin to eat again, and
lay off exercise, it gets worse. Your body
still can't be sure it's going to get all of
the proper food it needs so it stills stores
that triple amount. In a weekend, you can
blow up 5, 6, 7lbs.
So basically, you're defeating the purpose!
What does it do?
Your body needs lean tissue. It burns
calories naturally. The less body fat, the
better your body takes care of itself. Look
at Michael Phelps. To maintain his weight at
approximately 5% body fat, he has to eat
9000 calories a day. When he's training, he
has to eat a whopping 15,000 calories a day.
Why? Because that lean tissue is eating up
every calorie in his body at an unbelievable
Adding weight training 3x a week increases
lean tissue, and burns calories naturally.
I've trained many people who do classes and
cardio alone. They look heavier than they
are, and can't get that size and weight down
anymore. That's because they have high body
fat. They burned up all of their muscle.
Ladies, weight training will not bulk you
up. Testosterone is the chemical in your
body that increases muscle size. You don't
have enough in you to create those large
muscles unless you supplement with
testosterone. You'll actually get smaller!!!
And you'll look amazing.
Weight training is just as important for
general wellness and health. It decreases
the odds of type II diabetes, decreases the
risk of heart disease, increases cardio
vascular function, increases your resting
metabolism and so much more!
Strength is important to everyone. You'll
have energy stores left over after doing
strenuous work at home or at your job. Minor
everyday tasks shouldn't make you tired.
Being stronger will help you breeze through
those tasks! They won't wear you out! So
you'll have more energy to do more things,
and you'll sleep like a baby!
If you're prone to anxiety and depression,
weight training also increases your feeling
of well being and decreases anxiety and
depression. You'll have better self esteem,
and feeling of self worth.
So, don't think weight training is just for
body builders. Doing it properly and
regularly will benefit your life immensely!!
Mentally, physically and emotionally. You'll
be stronger, have more energy, look better,
feel better and you can start with training
30 minutes, 3x a week, plus some cardio.
That with a proper diet will change all
aspects of your life for the better!
I've been sick for 2 weeks. I haven't
trained because I've had a chest cold. I
feel awful! I'm not happy, I'm anxious and
I'm dying to get back to the gym today! When
I lay off and then go back, all I can think
is, Geez!!! Thank god Iím back! I instantly
