Tiffany, Week 17: The #1 Workout Lesson I’ve Learned

You don’t need to kill yourself with cardio to lose fat and weight.

That’s the biggest message Lass, my trainer at Gold’s Gym, has taught me. I am lifting more weight today than I ever though I would. I’m amazed at each work out how much I can do. If you would have told me I’d be lifting heavy weights, flipping 100+ pound tractor tires and doing treadmill pushes (where I make the treadmill belt move vs. me programming it to move) I would have said your crazy!

With Lass, every workout involves strength and conditioning (Lass’ word for cardio). I leave the gym drenched in sweat and hardly able to walk due to muscle fatigue. And I love it! I went from all cardio—thinking I was really pushing myself—to really realizing what it meant to push myself and be pushed by using weights!

I’ve seen huge changes in my body (thanks to the workouts and a proper diet). There’s no way I’m going back to my all-cardio-all-the-time ways now!

Are you hesitant to try strength training? Post a comment and tell me why!
