are you doing all the heavy lifting?

I’ve been in the process of moving. And boy, I’m lucky I am STRONG! 

So… that leads me to fat loss mistake #5 (If you missed the others, go back to my main feed posts to review the most common mistakes I find with the ladies I work with as a virtual personal trainer living in paradise in Oahu, Hawaii. There are 8 mistakes in total!)

#𝟱 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗟𝗜𝗙𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗛𝗘𝗔𝗩𝗬!

Stop the insanity of light weight and a gazillion reps as typically found on all of those videos and “strength training” classes found in your local gym!

Quick👏🏾 Fix:👏🏾 Lift👏🏾 heavy👏🏾 and👏🏾 sprinkle👏🏾 some👏🏾 high-rep👏🏾 sets👏🏾 into👏🏾 your👏🏾 program.👏🏾 It’s👏🏾 called👏🏾 Balance!

How often you lift and the type of program you follow are dependent on your training history, past or present injuries, and goals.

STOP: Doing 20-30 rep sets with those pink light weights that don’t elicit any adaptation whatsoever. 

START: Lifting some heavy ass weights and build a calorie-burning-energy-expending machine.
