Whether you should complete a high number of reps with lighter weights or fewer reps with heavy weight is an often-debated topic in the fitness world. However, the truth is that neither training plan is better than the other. You can do both!
Although I’m not a certified fitness professional, I’m a firm believer in keeping your muscles guessing. I constantly switch both my cardio and strength workouts each week.
Now more than ever, I’m focusing on a well-rounded fitness program. Basically, I’m training concurrently (i.e. for cardio and lifting goals at the same time). I’ve been doing it for a little more than a year and have seen significant gains in overall physical fitness.
Although I hope you try the workout, I’m not going to be disappointed if you don’t. Why? Because you should move in a way that makes YOU happy. <—-Great post. Seriously. Check it out!
If you train concurrently, that’s great. Feel free to join me in the gym. However, if you don’t train concurrently, that’s awesome too. YOU should do what works best for YOU.
Maybe that’s running three times a week. Maybe it’s practicing yoga every day. I could care less as long as you’re happy. Life’s too short to do things we don’t like to do. 🙂
