Lifting weights is great and all, but to really lose weight with low testosterone, you need to get regular cardiovascular exercise, which will also help you to get the most out of your weightlifting routine. The most effective weight loss programs include cardio and weightlifting, so make sure you include 20 – 30 minutes of cardio with your weightlifting to maximize your exercise program’s weight loss potential. As always, be sure to check with your doctor before you begin any sort of cardiovascular exercise routine, especially if you have heart problems or other health issues.
12) GoWear/Sensewear/Bodybugg . This is the device used on Biggest Loser and with good reason: many guys may benefit from the use of this armband which uses a complex set of readings on acceleration, skin temperature/response and heat to determine how many calories you have burned. It is supposedly much more accurate than standard heart monitors and considering that a lot of us are motivated by numbers, myself included, this offers a considerable level of detail. You get numbers and charts galore as it is used in conjunction with a web site that lets you analyze your progress.
I have an office job and compensate by lack of movement by running and walking everyday. I am training for a half marathon and am running 12-16km 3-4 times a week and walk every other day. I try and stick to around 1200 calories each day and am just not losing weight (5ft 9 and about 135lb) I am trying to lose a little bit of with but it jus won’t budge! I tend to gain and lose muscle pretty easily. Any advice? I just want to feel a bit smaller particularly in the legs which feel bulky from all the running. I am scared that if I reduce exercise I will put on weight even at 1200 cal as I spend most of the day in front of computer! Thanks
