Fat loss priorities.

After a two-week hiatus from my work I’m still pretty far behind, but I made a very nice dent in my workload yesterday. Hopefully there will not be too many interruptions today and I can get even closer to being caught up.

At the end of the work day yesterday it felt great to put all the stress and bother of the day out of my mind and just train. Weight training is one of the best stress releases I know of. Relaxing in front of the TV after a hard day’s work may sound tempting, but vegging out is only cathartic on a very superficial level. Weight training makes me feel like a new man: I felt fairly tired and drained before my workout, but by the time it was over I was in a great mood and infused with energy. If you feel like skipping your weight training, ignore those feelings. Just get in there and do it. Give it your all, and I guarantee you’re going to feel great when you are done.

If you are trying to lose fat and are not training with weights, you are making a huge mistake. Many people who are trying to lose fat have their priorities backwards, in my opinion. They starve themselves, and when they do eat they use poor food choices. They do too much cardio. They don’t train with weights… I believe that diet is the most important aspect of losing fat. Weight training is second most important, and cardio is last. I’m not saying that cardio won’t help, or that it’s not beneficial – it certainly has it’s place – but too many people think cardio is the most important part of losing fat and I honestly believe that the exact opposite is true. If you are trying to lose fat, I suggest that you get your diet in order and get under the iron before you do anything else! The sticky threads in the beginner’s forum can help you with these tasks.
