Do a lot of cardio exercises!
By doing this, your muscles will show since your fat is burning faster. Of friend of mine told me that if you just work out your muscles (or strength training over cardio), your muscles will just push your fat, making you look bigger. Good luck!
Except strength training burns calories as well. And muscles burn more calories at rest than body fat does, so even if you “just work your muscles,” you’ll likely see progress. Cardio is mainly important for cardiovascular health and more endurance.
With the medication and the invasive procedure, exercising would likely either cause your body pain (like tearing your stitches) or the medication would make you too loopy to use proper form and you’d injure yourself.
Take it easy. Stretch a bit. Make some yummy smoothies and read a good book. A week or so off won’t kill you. :)
It depends on what your weekly schedule would be like. If you flipped the two days and ended up with a good balance, it’d be totally fine. If you switch the two and therefore have three leg days in a row, it’d be bad.
Just did the 50 up, 50 down and the beginner arms, getting ready to be at next year’s AMKE. Get ready for it!
Oh, it’s been years since I’ve been to AMKE. Are you getting in shape for a cosplay, or just because?
Why? Because I’m awesome. :)
I feel like that vast majority of questions I get are about things I reblog. “How do you make this?” “What do you weigh in that picture?” “What’s in that bag?” Unless it’s a workout, a picture of me, or my ramblings, it’s likely not mine.
I’m sure thisclockworkheart would be as ecstatic to hear this as I am. :)
