I’ve recently got a membership to the gym. I plan on going 2-3 times a week with my first focus on weight loss. Cardio is the best way to lose weight. I am not in a rush, and I don’t want to make my arms and legs sore to the point where it hurts too much to lift anything heavy, because my job requires me to lift and lug heavy things.
My friends who go to the gym regularly, say you must push yourself and have it so where you are very sore, otherwise you won’t see progress. They’re no experts, so I am doubtful. In my eyes, burned calories is burned calories, and so long as you maintain a decent diet, progess would be made.
I am 5’ 7” and weight 201lbs, so I have a little weight on me. I want to cut it down and eventually get a decent body. After the weight loss, I want to focus on upper body strength. Aiming for actual strength instead of bodybuilding. What are some methods that have worked for you?
