Please not that this article was written by another author.  It was on the blog from the designer. 

While it starts out okay, it quickly deteriorates into something that even I can’t understand. 

For that reason I am deleting all but the first paragraph and re-writing it.  (Dated 8/30/2010)

One of the most common questions concerning exercise is what to do first – cardio or weights. First of all, if you are doing any exercise at all you need to know you are already doing great. My goal is to help you make the most of your exercise program.

To burn more fat you simply need to burn more calories than you take in.  And you need to do it consistently.

Now your body will fight this.  That is why exercise is so important.  But, just doing cardio or just doing weight lifting might not be enough.

Low intensity cardio for a long period of time (30-60 minutes) will burn calories during that time.  But, it will not burn body fat after the exercise session is over.

Low intensity weight training has the same problem.  However, at least with weight training you have the added benefit of building muscle.  Just this will help you burn more body fat over time.

However, there are much better ways to burn body fat, like higher intensity shorter workouts.  We will be talking more about these in this blog, so stay tuned.

    Greetings, Just wanted to tell you that your blog site is particularly very good and I actually like the weblog design. Is it a custom made style and design or some theme I can obtain as well?

    Hi, it is a custom style and design. I have no clue as to how to do all of that good design stuff.

    My apologies on this post. This was one that came with the site I had developed. And I didn’t read it. I just started doing my own posts. I will write something on this to clarify that post. Thanks for letting me know.

    Contrary to what other people are saying I think your blog could seriously use some work. I cannot even work out how you can subscribe to your RSS.

    I agree with you and this is a work in progress. There is much I still have to learn about the tech aspects of blogging.

    Good Morning, I do not normally post feedback on websites, as I prefer to read only. However I find the blog that you have created earlier has very insightful information, and I discover it very informational. I was searching on Bing for ideas on self improvement & stumbled your unique article. Could you write something the same special on how to self improve fast? Thanks!

  10. Mic

    Self improvement is one of my favorite topics. Unfortunately, I don’t much go for the BS self improvement mantras that are so popular today. But, I do plan on introducing more than just body self improvements in the future. Thanks for your input.

    I found a great diet program a couple of months ago, that helped me lose a load of weight. I was really skeptical at first, as they were going on about wholegrain pasta, as being rubbish for losing weight but then my mate whose a bit a fitness freak explained how bodybuilders eat pasta to put on mass. Anyways I gave it a try, and it was really good. I managed to lose 2 stone.
