I would recommend doing weights. If your gym has a Body Pump/Body Fit/ body Sculpt class (they're all pretty much the same) its like a cardio/weights workout which is incredibly efective and targets all the muscles without you ending up looking like Arnie at the end. When I did it (why oh why did I stop! grrrr!) I looked and felt great. I'm going to go back actually. It really is brilliant.
I used to use the hip and thigh aductors if ya gym has one of them use that and do about 3 reps of 12 but do them slowly loads of people do em really quick to get it done but that doesnt have any effect Also the cross trainer is great for working everything i used to do it for about 10 mins to start when i first joined and then built up to 20-30 mins and do it on FAT BURN if it has that option on it
Why not see if they can do you a workout sheet and give you advice at the gym xx
Congrats Laura, good 4 you, i think the best burner is a cross trainer, even if you do it slowly on an easy level to start with, you can work up some sweat and slowly increase the pace, difficulty and time. If they have cardio / step classes, grab one its a great motivator.
I've been paying membership since Jan but not used it enough. I must get back into it myself. Also, ya gotta dring lake loads of water. you'll be fit in no time hun!
Hi Laura, the best thing you could have done at this poitn is join the gym, so well done. I wouldn't attempt to do anything in the gym though until you have been assessed. Then you ccan tell them the areas you want to focus on. Main thing first of all is to get your fitness up from Cardio, crosstrainer and treadmill are best for this, get your heart pumping. Wish I had started the gym earlier in my weight loss than I did. So well done you! Good Luck xx
