Thread: Light weight training?

  1. #1

    Light weight training?

    I know technically we aren't supposed to workout aside from light walking, swimming or biking. Low stamina Yoga... but I tend to challenge rules. Anyone doing some light weight training or other exercise while on phase 2? I have stuck with my daily yoga (just lighter routines) but stopped free weight training and I'm considering adding it back in a few days a week. Just looking for opinions. I'm on injections. Doctor supervised.

    everytime I have tried to push it with weights, I gain from water retention/muscle repair. It is hard psychologically to come to grips with that. My weight training suffers because you're just not nourished enough to do that, and it's just not a good trade off for me. For perspective's sake. My husband and I lift heavy, and 6 days a week when we are 'in the zone'.... I have had 3 unsuccessful rounds trying to add weights (again, psychologically it's very difficult to see weight gains/minimal loss from the strength training, and stay focused on my protocol with hcg) The times I haven't went ahead with weights, I had success.

    The school of thought is you can continue what you're accustomed to doing pre-hcg, but even with that, I go to almost no exercise during protocol because it messes with my round.

    Best of luck to you.

    I'm not aware of anything in Pounds and Inches that says you can't workout. Usually the recommendation from others' experiences is that you shouldn't add anything you're not already used to doing and you may find you don't have enough stamina to do your usual heavy workout. I'd say if weight training is part of your routine, keep it up.

    I had the same experience as the other user where the weight losses were less on days following my weight workouts. Physically, I felt good. But scale wise, it was discouraging. In the end, I decided I wanted lower numbers on the scale and to wait until I've competed my rounds before incorporating exercise again.

    It is true that modern life is fast-paced. But the pace isn't necessarily bad. Fast-paced life is probably better than slow-paced life because it exposes us to more opportunities. It helps us push ourselves and try new things. Indeed, we don't get enough exercise; but we also don't get enough sleep and fresh air, and we spend too much time staring at screens. But all these things are fixable, and if we can make the changes, www.fitnessguideguru.com will improve our health and well-being while leaving us free to do what we want.
