I just started working out again after taking a long time off from health problems. Doctors give me the go ahead to begin a workout plan. Tried to go back to Thai Boxing and Grappling sessions, but my cardio, stamina, and strength sucks bad, as I have also put on about 40 pounds in the past year. So...it's remedial cardio and strength training 101 for me. Here are my questions...
Age old question..Cardio then weights, or weights then cardio. I am 6ft tall, and 280 pounds. For maximum weight loss and building stamina..how should I approach this? I started yesterday doing 10 minute light cardio (treadmill) for warming up, 30 minute all around weight workout, and either back to the cardio for 20 minutes on the ellyptical or swimming laps. Then I sit in the steam room because it feels good on my joints.
Whats the best diet? Without fully starting the Atkins or South Beach or any crap like that, I eat a regular diet, but I eat moderate carbs and I limit sugars. Any other suggestions?
Workout in mornings or evenings? What's better for weight loss and recovery?
Any suggestions can help!
