4 Reasons Why Your Cardio Addiction Won`t Help You Lose Weight Posted by admin on March 14th, 2020 08:03 AM Attention, cardio rabbits: Your sweat design might actually be just what’s standing in between you and also your health and fitness and also weight-loss goals. 4 Reasons Why Your Cardio Addiction Won’t Help You Lose Weight. CARDIO IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN STRENGTH TRAINING FOR FAT LOSS Minute-per-minute, you might burn more calories on the elliptical than you will in the weight room, but those calories will come from carbs, fat and protein — the building blocks for muscle.As you finish your cardio workout, the calorie burn stops. Not so with strength. Combining resistance training and cardio in your weight loss program may help you reduce your bodyweight quickly and help you create definition at the same time.

Start lifting weights. Time to stop fearing weights and start enjoying lifting them! Strength training is an important component of successful weight loss. Cardio can affect your hormones—in a way that increases weight gain: Some studies have found that for women in particular, cardio exercise can affect hormone levels, tilting the body toward wanting to store more fat rather than get rid of it.

One example is a study on 18 female runners. Let’s say in you actually added cardio in addition to your weight training. You might have even put on some lean body mass – muscle – but not with your new cardio routine you actually risk losing some of your gained muscle mass.

That’ll make you look flabby and skinny fat. 3. And no, marathon runners are not thin because of cardio. This is why even when you’re being diligent with your calorie deficit you may find your fat loss has come to a standstill. Don’t worry though, I got you. Here are 8 reasons you’re not losing.

You may be able to lose quite a lot of weight at first, without much effort. However, weight loss may slow down or stop altogether after a while. This article lists 20 common reasons why you’re.

Yet the scale needle still won’t budge. Why are so many dieters destined to regain lost weight or never lose anything at all? Here are 9 reasons your body isn’t behaving: 1. You don’t have. The amount of cardio you need to lose weight depends on various factors like your current weight, diet, daily activity level, and age.

Cardio for weight loss To lose weight, you need to. Exercise by itself won’t help you lose weight. This is not to say that exercise isn’t good for you; it is, in fact, great for you.

It conveys an astonishing array of health benefits.

Third, the mood­enhancing effects of exercise may also mimic the effects of addictive substances in a healthy way, leading to a decreased need for the substance/process and a lower risk of relapse (Alcoholrehab.com, 2015; Taylor et al., 1985).

In addition, weight cycling due to repetitive attempts at sustained weight loss leads to losses of lean tissue (muscle and bone) and decreases in metabolic rate, thus worsening the energy balance equation in the end, and making dietary management more and more difficult.

  • Hi Jessica.  I’m a trainer in the UK. Think your workouts are really well put together and well considered for different audiences. Very good.

    One question re this one where do you get the square top for the step. These are so good for restricted space but I can’t find them online.

    Cheers and Happy Christmas!!

  • I’m rather overtrained (<1% of the people) than overworked (>75% of the people)
    I would rather be doing too much exercises (<1% of the people) than watching TV or sitting down on my ass (90> % of the people).
    But guess what? I’m not overtrained, not overworked, I’m not doing too much exercises but I still enjoy to relax everyday!

  • Like I’m 16 and I’ve been doing cardio and some weight lifting exercises like everyday I take like 1-2 rest day every week is this good???

  • I was exercising one hour every day, and after a week I’m like why tf am I so tired and depressed. And also cutting my calories even tho i was brurning 500 calories from the exercise itself. I was undertaking calories by 500-900. So my parents took me to the doctor and told me that only do 30 mins of moderate level exercising with 2 rest days like the weekends and he said as long as your eating nutrient-rich calories (which i was) and getting moderate exercise. You will not gain fat and you will be on the right track for the rest of ur life. So take away is that only do moderate exercise and don’t cut down on calories if you already eat healthy, which most people who exercise do. Only cut down the bad calories in your diet and then replace them with good calories. Also don’t overdo your calorie intake!!!!!!! BALANCE IS KEY!

  • I was a very active person until my failed spinal fusion four years ago. It wasn’t until the quarantine that I started putting on weight. I think because my kids were home more. I need to get this 20lbs off it just adds to my already painful back. I hope I can do these. I have to stop and take a break often no matter what I’m doing and I haven’t been in my basement in four years so we’ll see.

  • I lost my period from over excercising. I haven’t gotten it for 5 months. Today it really hit me that I need to make a change, so now I will be excercising less and not being so intense on myself.

  • I’ve been doing something similar to the first cardio but it’s like 30s sprinting and 30s jumping out of the band nonstop for 15 minutes and 7.5 mph speed. Idk if that counts?

  • well i have been working out 3 hours a day every day for the past 2 weeks after having a long break of no excersize and now im getting that urge to go running and lift weights but im really sore so i dont want over do it and hurt myself but im getting really anxious because i wanna do something

  • i cycled so hard. i miss being my old self. i never got tired those days. like i could work drywall for 12 hours and then go and cycle 50km. now i get tired when getting out of bed:(

  • Your information and knowledge of fitness is great. Who certified you as fitness instructor? Is there a good book you recommend for self read? Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I do appreciate it a lot.

  • Reluctant to admit this but for me it’s probably both. Because I vacillate between days I work out and also walk or run, and days I end up working al day and never really moving. I also either eat over my calorie need and eat a few sweets or days I’m really “good” eat right and am below my calorie needs. The good days aren’t enough to counteract the bad days. So if I lose a couple pounds they grow back. Or sometimes neither lose nor gain. It’s like all or nothing mentality. Would say consistency is my biggest struggle.
    Also sleep. I struggled with insomnia for years. Working on it.
    Thanks much for the info Holly! ��xo

  • Very good video. Simple guidelines everyone could follow and maintain for a long healthy lifestyle I love your videos very informative.

  • I was taking fat loss pills and almost seriously harmed my health. Now I realise that diet is not pills and teas, but structured plan full of nutritionally rich foods. Visit NextLevelDiet and get a real diet, stop taking fuc*ing pills.

  • BS. Anything in life that feels or taste good comes with the message its not good for you. Just live, and do what feels right to you, workout, drink, cheat meal once a week, and remember you can follow all these rules and get hit by a bus, get murdered, or die in a fire, anything can happen. I would rather die doing what I love, then live doing what I hate. Make your own choice.

  • I’m 56, haven’t had a thyroid for 21 years and can say that if you find an endurance sport you like, you’ll melt calories and never worry about weight again. I can burn about 800 calories in an hour of cycling and my average workouts range between 1hr20min to over 3 hours. Additionally,, to do and enjoy any endurance sport well you need weight/strength training. Want to try cycling, great. Want to try swimming or running, great. Go big guns and try Triathlons, definitely. It’s a lot of work but the dividends it pays you are huge. There are Tri events for every experience level and once you get the bug you’ll never stop. This doesn’t compete with what she if saying, but actually supports it. Both Cardio and Strength training will help you not only reach your goals but change your life.

  • There’s nothing wrong with having a weekly exercise workout routine, but I have found that women who exercise, jog, or workout a lot are bat-shit crazy. Most of them are extremely insecure and buy into how Industry and Society thinks they should look. So basically they worry more about how other people view them than how they view themselves. Most of them can’t keep a man in their lives and don’t understand why, and of course with women, it’s always the man’s fault. So guys, every morning when you go to work and see that good looking fit woman with the nice ass jogging around the block and when you come home after work and see her again jogging around the block and you’re thinking, “Damn, I’d like to get a taste of that”, first, stop thinking with your dick, second, ask yourself “Why is she always out jogging”? The answer, she’s Bat-Shit Crazy, that’s why.

  • This video is so misleading. The video trying to talk about for example long distance runners, running but only eating a carrots. Not healthy
    Or people who eat lettuce and no carbs or or fats and work at the gym for 2 or 5.

    You don’t have the right fuel to Survive Your Body will adapt and take anything to keep on going and survive

    Stay healthy eat right train right

  • WOW! 33 THOUSAND IDIOTS LIKED THIS VIDEO ���������������� holy sh*t �� this idiot doesn’t haven’t a clue what she’s talking about ����

  • i thought that i am smart.
    My life is like when you wait for your favourite person to call or message you but you wait 10 hours and pass the training time
    In 5 words i could say: “My life is a joke”

  • Think about it, u prolly been going to school since u were in kindergarten, then u had work and take care of yourself since then, even if u live with your parents that can be stressful,, that shit fucks with your mental, u need a break, I could easily be mean about this but you caught me in a ok mood today so

  • I do strength training and it also provides some cardio, especially when doing compound moves. I do low impact cardio a couple of times a week to get in some extra cardio.
    I ran long distance runs for years, I was lean, but little muscle. Although I’m not skinny anymore, I prefer having muscle.

  • Tried this today but sped it up a wee bit…just enough to elevate my heartbeat since I didn’t have a step and just doing it on the floor wasn’t making me sweat as much. Still loved it though since it was nice and easy and good to get my heart pumping and a nice and easy cardio warm up…which I did use it for for my afternoon quickie workout hehehe!  Loving all these 10 minute workouts that I can space out during the day…keeps me moving:D I’m trying to learn not to push myself in one go and I’ve learned something new from you this week…if I feel like I’m going to puke it means I’m pushing myself too hard.  I always thought that’s how you were supposed to feel…no wonder I never lasted more than 3 months at a time working out…LOL!  So thank you, Jessica, for teaching me how exercising can be fun and something I look forward to doing (almost:P) every day!! 

  • Thank you!! Found this late and felt guilty for not doing cardio!! I can move around all day and get little weight work outs in while playing with my kids!! Glad to know I don’t need to fun tell I can’t breath!!!

  • Hi holly! Are body weight exercises or light free weights counted as strength? I’m unable to go to the gym and I’m worried my workouts aren’t effective enough since I’ve already been exercising for quite a while now

  • I started my weight loss journey about a year ago everything went great until I got into a car accident I had to wear a leg cast and couldn’t exercise so of course I gained weight as soon as the cast was taken off I started exercising like crazy
    I’ve been restricting my food intake and I can’t focus if I miss a workout
    Today was supposed to be fun because it’s Christmas but instead of enjoying this time of the year I went upstairs at 11:40 pm and exercise till 2:02 am
    I feel great after exercising and that’s why I don’t want to seek help because exercising makes me feel so good but when I’m not exercising I feel terrible so I exercise more and more I can’t stop I feel out off control..

  • I’m 17 and I push myself to the limit every day. Working out is my outlet. I’m young and I have a strong heart & lungs. Do I even have limits?

  • Wouldn’t the immune system adapt over time though? Of course if you take someone who isn’t use to working out hard and then they workout hard then they will suppress it. But over the years you would think that your body would adapt and set a new “normal point” of whats intense and what isn’t intense.

  • Since when ‘cardio’ = low intensity hours long grind that will eat your muscle mass???

    The retarded weightlifting gym mafia is desperate to push their psychopathy on 99% of the population…

  • But what about professional athletes?

    I’d imagine they have many light workouts, with only a few intense ones during the week, but still it’s not like they can only do 10 hours of exercise a week only; maybe their bodies are used to it

  • There is NOT A CHANCE that this video has 33k likes yet EVERY SINGLE ONE of the top 100 comments are critical, a little sus if you ask me

  • Thank you for giving a do-able cardio workout which does not make me hurt worse. It was fun ( i was even smiling:} and my back really did feel better than prior. I had to do the first half much slower tho. The back leg curl really felt good on my legs-but hurt my hips so much i had to stop early. I must be really out of shape. If my pain is not flared up from this tomorrow-I want to get your video.

  • I had got word how carbs were tied into weight gain and so generally to abstain from carbs, but yet had by no means thought of using them to lose excess weight. The significant idea behind the four cycle fat loss solution is to train your system to reduce fat for energy instead of carbohydrate. It’s built around scientific inquiry into the very high carb diets of the Japanese as well as their impressive long-life expectancy. The findings validate the fact that it’s their high carb-cycling eating habits practice that can help to continue being in good health into old age with a reasonable body mass index (decreased incidence of excess weight).Read even more here https://truehealthreport.com/4-cycle-fat-loss-fat-burning-diet/

  • Glad I found this, since my epidural in 2013 when the needle was placed in the wrong place AnD left a hole where I was told spinal fluid was leaking out, so a blood patch was done where a nerve was hit causing me legs to go numb with a pounding headache and I was unable to walk or even move for months to this day I still have neck back and leg pain..I might be able to do this routine

  • I do workouts everyday maybe for 2 hours in total �� I feel like that isn’t enough, I mostly do workouts that tone my body tho not like 2 hours of cardio lol

  • I tried 6hours of heavy lifting yesterday for almost 7hours and lifted 25-27 kilos sacks of rice and carried it through ricefield pathways,im just 17 ;<;)Edited:im 17 actually, sorry

  • I like swinging do it so much now qith the lockdown i cant do it i feel lile im dying im so stressed and sad all the time the while urge to just ho and do it hurts

  • Expert advice no doubt…
    One question though.
    WTF is up w that t shirt???
    I mean, I love unicorns as much as the next dude. But pink?

  • You damn right you are an influencer who’s lying to us. Please, go read a book or even a sudy online before speaking about how cardio is doing ZERO for us

  • So easy for me to eat super healthy all day and through dinner. The problem…after that… dessert and then the momentum eating. I can just keep eating. Not sure how to control that. I know that I dont exercise enough so i am upping my activity. And i need to stay away from sugary stuff bc it increases hunger. Now i cannot eliminate sugar and i dont have to. I just need to have 1 dessert instead of 2 or 3. Damage is done w the momentum eating of the processed and sugary stuff not healthy stuff. I seem to be in the same weight range no matter what i try w diet so i am gonna need to be more active and I think i cannot buy Oh’s cereal! Lol it lasts 2 days. Sad, i know. I like the fact that you realize it is damn near impossible to stay on a strict diet for a longer length of time. That is true. The one thing you can do is make small adjustments. For me, that is 2 desserts instead of like 3 or 4 and then someday 1 or every other day. You would think i am obese, but i am not. No ripped abs though.

  • I’m pretty lean everywhere except my lower abs. I just can never take it to that next level wherein I’m able to lose it all. I hear that last little bit is the most difficult to get rid of

  • Everything you talk about is bang on. Often times ill be 2 months in an all of a sudden i lose motivation due to same diet everyday and or same workout regiment for too long. Easy to get overwhelmed.

  • I have severely excessive degenerated disc disease, facet disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and have not been able to move much before I was doing kick boxing, yoga, pilates. Thanks to this video i’m able to move without falling on the ground in agonizing pain. I feel good for rest of day too. Thank you for posting video for those with back problems.

  • It’s hard when you’re 13. I eat a ton of eggs, my mom mostly cooks really high carb meals because it lasts longer. Thanks for the knowledge sir!

  • John you are so good. My favorite trainer hands down. I cannot weight to work with you. You deliver valuable information in an authentic and KIND manner. You respect everyone and you teach without dispariging others. That is so very rare. I appreciate you for that. Keep making excellent content.

  • Broccoli chicken and rice
    What a typical boring typical neat head meal Designed to make you fat as rice creates insulin and you can’t lose fat with insulin constantly in your system as there’s no glucagon

  • Hello, thank you. Is a burpee a good sub for those of us who csnt jump rope? I do enjoy your I’m here to get it done videos and great explanations for everything you share.

  • I work out but I’m not losing weight,I’m 14 stone 10 pound,and I know I’m a bit over weight as I am 5ft 8 and a half,but feel good in my self,but like I said I do a hell of a lot of cardiovascular work,and I notice now I’m getting quicker to,I do up to 65 minutes on the cross training machine I do weight training but not too much,strength work it is more than anything else,but love doing the both,but there’s no way can I watch what I’m eating you got to live life simple,and life can be short,but I must say I do feel fit.

  • Hi corey & everyone. I feel a little out of my depth here but can an amateur like me just pick up and start these exercises. I haven’t exercised for years… 4 kids and teaching maths to teenagers!
    I have always loved to exercise just couldn’t find thd time.

  • Day 16 #quickfitholidaychallenge2014   I already did my workout this morning but, when I saw this routine I decided to give it a try. A good one to get you moving or you just need a break from your desk! Thanks #jstvfit  

  • 90% of your Instagram programs are more than likely cookie cutter; Joey swoll for example, has over 2 million followersyou think he has the time for even half of a percent (.5%) of those followers? Cut and paste baby, boom!

  • Thank you for getting STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. Smh other girls make a 34 min video and like they talk only 2 mins about the theme…

  • This is the biggest crock of shit I’ve ever heard. Anyone who believes this is a moron. How can you sit there a talk this crap and feel happy with it. IDIOT

  • I have lost 10lbs in just one month by following diet plan from NextLevelDiet. It’s really a great tool. I recommended it to my family members and we all started to eat and live healthier. Long live #NextLevelDiet.

  • Ah this was great. I just finished this workout. I have a horrible back and have to go in to have my nerves burned in my spine often. This workout was perfect, low impact, totally doable and I felt the burn. I still have about 50 pounds to lose so I’ll be incorporating this into my regular routine. Thank you!

  • I jogging training for 40 minutes at 6 km every three days.too much exercise is not good. But I get a balance of exercise not over exercise. But it helps my heart and blood circulation and weight.

  • I have a very bad back and can’t do this much walking or standing. Can you do a video for people with real bad backs? Those who can’t walk longer than 5 min, can’t bend, twist or steps?

  • I’m having sciatica from last one nd half years and gained a lot but found something good so gonna try it up. Let’s c how it goes!

  • So I have been doing this wrong! I should do this after weight training? I have been doing my HIIT workout before weightlifting! Thank you so happy I found your channel!✌����

  • Added this to Day 19’s 12-Minute Quick Power Walk. Hadn’t tried it yet, but it’s going to be one of my favorites. Heart pumpin’ without any jumpin’, woo hoo!

  • Sooo GLAD I found you! I have lower back pain and sciatica pain. I did ur video and made me feel accomplished and great. Didn’t hurt at all! Can’t wait to be able to work more and more. Thanks soooo much!

  • Thank u for tips…..stress is my issue as well….i dont eat much n i do exercise….i sleep well,i jus cannot lose anymore….i seriously been eating so clean n i did lose weight but im at a plateau now…..

  • Jessica Smith

    My wife wants to get rid of flabby bits under her arms. Whats the best way to get these toned and better looking. any help would be much be muchly appreciated. Thanks

  • Love your pup in the workout!! He’s like. mom what the heck… This is a good lower impact workout also for seniors. I’m going to recommend this for my mom. I am not a senior but have a hamstring tear right now. For those who need it easier, cut the workout in half and try to work up to more time until you can maybe double or triple the workout. That is good for your heart anyway to build up the time. Also you can just eliminate the step, or exercises that you can’t do well right now, but keep moving, and you can walk on a mat or carpet while doing the workout. Always wear good sneakers for support too.

  • I really appreciate your reminders to go at your own pace. The only modification I made is not putting my hands in “stop” position while pumping arms forward or up, due to wrist issues.

  • Ever since I’ve been diagnosed with 2 herniated discs, degenerative disk disease, 20% nerve damage and a newer herniated disk that’s sitting on my right sciatic nerve, and arthritis in my lower lumber; I have gained so much weight. My back hurts by doing the simplest things and am on some of the strongest meds. I want to exercise again….esp after I also had corrective surgery recently and am now able to actually move my arms like that. Of course I’m not going to start this now. I have spinal injections coming up this week that’s going to kinda calm it down while I talk to a neurosurgeon. But as soon as I get at least a little better I’m gonna try. I need to. Thank you for this vid. I can’t do the things I used to but your vid looks like something I can do. ^^

  • I have to try to reduce by half my 2 HRs daily workouts seriously to stop the lower back pain from core and ab workouts I will rather eat less workout less and have half the pain as well.

  • perfect for my back issues! Thank you!! I like how you encourage people to keep their backs straight and tight. that’s a huge issue for bulging discs!! Bending over is a bad thing!! It is already helping with my back issues, which have me very limited in activity. I hope this will help to strengthen me so that I can do more.

  • Thanks for this short cardio workout! I have chronic back pain after breaking my pelvis in 7 place 14 years ago, and I find a lot of exercise really painful or it exacerbates my problems. This is the perfect mini-workout for me! I like your inclusive approach!:)

  • Thank you so much for this video. So glad I found your channel. Always such excellent info. Based on this video I’m wondering how long you should do strength training each day or each session? Also, Do you consider HIIT workouts to be strength training? Would love to hear your feedback!

  • I am runner and I am incorporating more strength training as I am 53 and I need to stay strong. Is it ok to do a light 5 km on strength days for a warmup?

  • Sorry but the cute fur baby made me not look at anything she did. Dogs are the best. Sorry, many thanks. I put a lot of weight on when I broke my back so this helps.

  • Very informative per usual. Thank you! Your black leggings with those shiny patches are stunning! Could you please tell me what bramd and style it is?

  • The part She’s not mentioning that people with significant amounts of weight to lose should not be sprinting because you are putting too much stress on your joints & can end up injured. An overweight person, when sprinting, is literally shocking their joints with up to 2x their weight each time.

    Every Damn Day Fitness explains this really well on his channel.

  • As I mention in the video there is a training spectrum with endurance cardio on one side and 1RM strength training on the other. But in between that are a variety of workout designs that can be both cardio AND strength training! If you’re looking for a metabolic strength workout to try, check out this Rep Capped Circuit. It’s one of my favorites!: https://redefiningstrength.com/build-strength-and-burn-fat-with-rep-capped-circuits/

    I workout for two hours a week, I can’t take breaks or else I’ll have an anxiety attack, I lower my calories (maybe a bit too much, and from that I have a slight fear of food now), It’s a really bad habit:/

    Thanks for posting this though! It made me realize that i have a serious problem and that I need to take action. I’ll try and lower my exercise routines

  • 5 reasons I don’t loose weight:

    1) I love food too much
    2) I love food too much
    3) I love food too much
    4) I love food too much
    5) I love food too much

  • Thank you! Am 49 and have had very bad back issues for 10 years. All other exercises have left me hurting for days. This felt good and I am so grateful to you, Jessica.:)

  • Omg, she knows nothing! How did she get subs???? Possibly her subs are those individuals who were hoping to not actually have to work to achieve weight loss or improve health. Common, really????

  • I do cardio, but I love strength training. I’m doing some strength training at home, but waiting for my gym to reopen from this quarantine.

  • Click here I was having a pizza with my friend when he said he was on a diet and pizza is his regular cheat meal and part of diet plan he got from NextLevelDiet. I thought he was crazy, but after a month I noticed his body has changed a lot. He looked better than ever. I should really visit that website

  • Sorry, but you’re an idiot when it comes to knowledge about cardio. Stop spreading lies to your viewers & get your facts straight before you post your videos.

  • Thank you I have spinabifida occulta I found these exercises really helpful they got my heart rate going and didn’t hurt my back at all. �� Also peanut made me laugh with his stretches!

  • With 3 young kids, I’ve been procrastinating getting the weight off. I haven’t been a healthy size for at least 10 years now. My back problems have gotten worse and I can’t keep up with my kids… so two weeks ago I decided to stop procrastinating and dive-in cold turkey. I cut back on calories (actually overhauled our entire pantry! Only healthy food now!) and started working out to this video 3 times in a row every morning. In 2 weeks, I’ve already lost more than 10 lbs! I already feel a difference and I’m not dragging myself through my new routine anymore. I’m actually stoked to get even healthier!! I’m saving up for your walk-on DVD and a high step (we’re very low income, so it’s a long-term goal) but I’m already looking forward to trying your other YouTube videos once my back can handle it. I just wanted to let you know what an awesome impact your free videos have had on my life. I honestly can’t thank you enough. I tried SO MANY workout videos on YouTube before finding yours and none of the other instructors were relatable or offered bad back and knee options. Thank you for being understanding of those of us that have the hardest time doing anything physical. Your videos are invaluable to me and I can’t even come close to explaining what a big impact you’ve had on me (and my entire family as a consequence). You’re my hero!…Oh and my kids are 1, 3 and 5 and they all LOVE Peanut! They “Aaaaaw” at him every time he moves in any way on the video. My 5-year-old honestly worries that he’s going to get stepped on. Lol!!! Give Peanut a tummy rub for us and tell him he has a fan club!:)

  • I am so glad i found you on my feed. Could you make more low impact exercises? I struggle with diastasis recti and bad back and knee pain (mommy of 2 young toddlers and major car accident)

  • This girl is pretty lean and does cardio only 40-50 minutes 5-5 walk on 9.5-11.0 at 4.0 and then 0.5 incline at 6.3-7.0 speed. She said,” if you’re cardio doesn’t suck a little it probably won’t work “ what does this mean in different terms? Is intensity needs to be there in order to what???? Get toned or loose body fat?? Someone help me haha

  • There’s nothing wrong with working out intensely everyday if you want however if you do be sure you’re eating enough that’s where a lot of people make mistakes even if you’re trying to lose weight you got to have calories to burn or your body literally starts eating itself so just be smart if you’re constantly fatigued just eat more but choose healthier foods

  • I am about to try this. I just came from a walk. I nees to lose weight without irritating the 2 herniated discs. Let’s see how this goes.

  • 100% agree.
    I was believe it or not doing to much weight training. My diet was also so strict.
    Worked for about 3 months but then I didn’t enjoy going to the gym or eating my strict meals.
    Made a few changes that have worked great for me. Enjoying the pump in the gym, the sweat with Cardio, my new balanced meals.
    Don’t always listen to what the book says use and stock with whatever works best for you.

  • What are some ways to lost a lot of fat? I read loads of superb reviews on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost a ton of fat. Has any one tried using this popular lose weight secrets?

  • So I’m not the best when it comes to consuming a healthy/recommended amount of water, I’m not sure why but I love water a lot, even sometimes when I do drink a lot it’s still not really benefiting me. And when it comes to calorie intake, I tend to over and undereat. I snack a lot whenever I feel hungry or eat when bored, on the other hand sometimes I tend to not eat and just wait until dinner time to eat which is right before bed. I wanna shake these bad habits but I’m not sure entirely what foods will benefit my body type and sadly enough these habits are nearly second nature…. I’m not obese but I’m a little bigger than I’d like.

  • I love this kind of training but I can’t do it because my knees are hurting…. Does anyone have another alternative to loose weight on a treadmill?

  • When i watched this the first time i disagreed but what she’s saying is actually TRUE lol athough she wasn’t skinny fat she was skinny…but yah all these fitness influencers don’t do those workouts they keep filming..that’s to get money off of us making us think that that’s what made their bodies look snatched like that..she’s absolutely right these cardio things have never worked for me..that’s why most people give up on their fitness journey when doing cardio cause they don’t do shit..unless you have a high body percentage…cardio is not even sustainable you end up adding that fat back once you stop but strength training builds your body and gives you a fast metabolism where you can even eat kfc e.t.c and it will burn it as fast as you ate it.GUYS she knows what she’s talking about idc!

  • Question: What about doing cardio while wearing a weighted vest and holding dumbbells? This is what I do often do with my cardio workouts in order to work harder and increase my strength. 2 fit birds with one stone, if you will.:) Is this effective?

  • I’m never sure what to put in my diary: is it cardio or strength I just did? It’s funny because a program will be listed as ‘strength’ but the trainer is doing as many reps possible that it seems we’re just jumping in place lol. I’m one of those people that doesn’t like more than 10 minutes of cardio. I focus on it as a warm up. If I do a program with the intent of both for 30 min straight, I burn out fast…and I’m hungry. So what has me looking forward to a workout is 25 min of yoga & specific joint mobility moves, 10 min of low impact cardio for warm up, 15-20 strength either bodyweight or dumbbells.
    Those dumbbells flew off the shelves at stores so I might get creative and fill 2 empty milk jugs with water.

  • I mostly work for meany reps for incline,internal training sessions,i am very active organically once I’m pretty maximized,for a, energy efficiency process from strengthening my core keep my whole body in full control.Luckily i’m a lot stronger an faster then some others around me..i apply my self i work hard but more highly motivated like the ones on here are..but she’s a pro I’m impressed on how she does this..keep it up!! �� ��.

  • my cardio is running to the kitchen repeatedly as I multitask cooking with work. My strength training is carrying that damn pot back to my desk

  • https://refer4.cash/Kacers_1432
    I swear this is a real person typing ���� bud just wanted to share with people how I finally found something that’ll actually pay out. It’s been 10minturs and I already have $40. I highly suggest it!

  • For me all are important: cardio (martial arts, bike, swimmking, classic cardio HIIT or tabata style), strenght with weights, pilates, yoga, ballet and of course walking

  • This shit is no joke. I went through a period of exercise addiction that nearly put me in the hospital �� ��. Your body and brain clearly need rest to recuperate.

  • This is just what I was looking for. There are many restorative video’s to address back issues but I also wanted a full body workout and you’ve got my back lol from cardio, to resistance to abs and even some gentle yoga. A real treasure!!

  • Mountaindog, how do I lose this last 10-15 lbs of fat around my midsection while still bulking to build muscle? Im struggling with this phase right now and could use some real solid advice to follow, thanks in advance!

  • Thank you for this informative video. Can you please make a video on combining the two in effective ways? I hear strength training should not be done everyday. But if it is a combination, is it aerobic one day and strength training another day? Can you provide videos on combination work outs?

  • I have tried cardio, calorie reduction, and circuit training. Circuit training was best. More efficient and you look amazing afterwards.

  • Jessica, can you do a HIIT low impact workout for those of us with bad backs and knees? I love your 9 minute HIIT low impact workout…would love another! Thank you!

  • How to not get stressed when on diet. It’s like losing weight is all I’m thinking. When I’m eating feel like I’m getting fatter, and I dont deserve to eat because I’m fat. And this lead to overercising.

  • is strenght training without the dumbells just body weight -will still give me the same benefit as with equipment or weights? thank you

  • thank you so much for this! I’ve just been diagnosed with a degenerative disc in my lumbar. working out is my life, I have IBS, depression/anxiety so I must excercise to feel better…so I am glad I can do something still!!

  • I m suffering from back and spinal cord pain and I m not able to do intense exercises and because of this I m just putting on the weights but i think your exercise videos will help me. gonna try it.

  • I think there is a fourth answer… a little bit of each different from the first which was either one. I like to work out a little strength training in my aerobics and a little aerobics in my strength training. It keeps me from getting bored and has had tremendous effects.. I tried to loose weight for about five years on aerobic activity alone with little to no effect (I felt better, but I did not weigh any less or look any slimmer). Only once I added weightlifting did I start to notice a visible change in body and weight loss. I feel that lifting is the biggest kept secret for weight loss! Ciao from Italy, L

  • Absolutely spot on explanation. Superb.
    However given the lockdown Calisthenics, band work are good options for strength training? alternatives.

  • This really confused me rather than clarifying what is best. Why is doing both a copout? I walk or do the elliptical and do strength training in every workout.

  • Philosophy….
    STRENGTH training, for me sets up successful CARDIO.
    It more about getting and maintaining “lean”…
    not about getting or being “skinny”.

    Oh…23 years ago lost over 100lbs. and been around the same level of health, which means every year a smaller waistline, being a little lighter on the scales, and maintained roughly same or added more muscle mass (former college athlete)…year in and year out.

    Doing something is the most important and having a clear destination
    will help you navigate through inexhaustible sea of information to find best combinations that’ll work for you.

    This channel does help in “Defining” your own path.

  • I love your videos so much. I’m so glad I found your channel. Not only are you completely accurate your workouts are fun and unlike ALLLLLL the other exercise videos out there you make me laugh and your video on why your glutei aren’t growing was the best “AHA!”… THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I am a Registered Dietician and I work for a famous anti-aging MD he uses the term “skinny fat” ALL the time! At our clinic in NYC we have all of our patients go into a BMI machine that measures your fat, bones, and muscles. If bone mass and fat mass is more than muscle mass (by the way MOST OF THIN GIRLS)… this is called SKINNY FAT! As a nutritionist I was horrified to learn that I was technically considered to be overweight (clinically) because I was skinny fat! Even though I wear a size 2! Shelley thank you for your videos. Please keep making them! I would love to know what your favorite videos are (that you’ve made).. since I just found your channel I want to binge all of them lol…. but do you have a favorite playlist? I want to grow a bigger butt (so I have that playlist in my priority watch folder)… but also… any videos that you think are the most important to start with/watch first? (e.g. videos similar to your video called “why your butt isn’t growing” to target other parts of the body?). Thank you for dispelling all this BS and giving people the F’ing TRUTH! And you are funny as hell too in the way you deliver your content. SOOOO MUCH FAKE OUT THERE IN THE FITNESS INDUSTRY! YOU ARE WHAT WE NEED MORE OF!

  • I really wanna lose weight on my face, even though I’ve got a skinny body type. It’s so annoying and the only way I heard I can lose it is by cardio exercise and drinking enough water. Honestly I need to lose it so message me if you can help me out!!!

  • I have to because I binge eat whenever I diet I my body demands 2400-3000 calories and the only way to correct it is burning a thousand calories a day. Honestly I feel fine.

  • When I joined the gym almost 2 years ago, my how time flies. I started with classes yoga, TRX. I kept being late to classes due to my schedule. So I settled on the stationary bike for a while. Then I started using some of the machines. I saw little progress in weight loss and body definition. That’s when your channel came across my recommends. You have much variety in you exercise uploads. I switched up to isometrics, then dumbbells, and lat pull downs etc. I walk to the gym and back,, cardio. I lost almost 15 pounds. I have kept that off for about a year. I also have definition in areas that are visible to me and others. The visible progress also contributes to my continuity.

    This is the routine that works best for me. Thanks Corie.

  • Hi, love the video, do you recommend Full body workouts or split workout for strength? and how often should you train? Thanks in advance. Keep the content rolling ��

  • Thanks Cori! You are my go to coach for sure. I do both cardio with lite weights. Then heavy weight days only. It works for me and my energy is amazing both mentally and physically. I love what exercise does for the brain too.

  • Redefining strength’s video no: 273 Total hours of content 26:36:7….26 hours:36 mins:7 secs.. Thank for sharing valuable information.

  • You are a bad ass. Thank you for all of your amazing information and work out videos. Out of all the fitness videos yours are the most diverse and fun. I actually follow them. Keep doing what your doing ����

  • I’ve never embrace the fat acceptance movement, and am well aware that cyclists are said to be the most fit people in the world and over exercise. They have been found to live 17 years longer on average than the average person.

  • Hey Holly, I need to up my water and up my exercise and may watch my calories and minimize my stress. I’m trying to do a work out daily to burn my calories, I do both intense work outs and low impact such as walking over 11,500 steps a day. I get cravings for chocolate ��. My water intake needs to be more. Thanks for sharing this video.❤��

  • Heart health is not important, it’s all about the glutes! Who cares if you die at 40 from a heart attack, your ass will look so sexy in that coffin.

  • All of this is true. I’m only 25 and extreme exercise has destroyed my health. I was powerlifting and then i jumped into heavy resistance training now I have so many health complications. Please anyone who even thinks they are excercising way too much. Please stop. Get help.

  • No accountability is absolutely number 1.
    I eat smart and clean.
    IF I decide “I’m eating that Reese cup” I accept and make sure to do the work to burn that cup off. ACCOUNTABILITY

  • Hi Kori, I have been following your videos and training. Thank you.
    In the last 80days, I have gone down by 35lbs. Started at 227lbs and now 192lbs. I am male, 38 and 5’9″.
    I am doing cardio (high speed walk ) 3 days a week and doing circuit training for 30mins(35lb plate work out) for 6days a week.
    How I do I know that I don’t lose much muscle but only fat.
    Overall I look slimmer than before but I don’t look tight or muscular.

  • Short answer: Do it all! I would say, though, that some form of aerobic training is very important on its own for strengthening the heart and cardio-vascular system, which is different from fat loss. If you look at the World’s Strongest Man competitions, it is the guys who are very strong and also well-conditioned who win!

  • Hey bro, I love your content. I have had success burning body fat with fasting, meanwhile still maintaning muscle and even getting stronger..I would love to know your thoughts on that, maybe even a video?? Thanks agian for all you do!

  • John, thanks for the amazing videos as always ��
    Love the old school
    I have a question if you could help, I do steak and eggs only I enjoy it I love it, it works for me, do I still need to count calories?

  • Nowadays I’m way more into learning to strength train more during the week. But I do really love that steady pace catabolic running for the simple fact that it does for my mental health what (so far) strength training can’t (to some extent) do alone. I’d love to hear more about the mental health side of all this as a factor to fitness.

  • So much BS in this video. Cardio is a VERY important tool for getting heart and muscle healthy. Combine both cardio and weights and you can’t lose. What are you trying to sell? Lol

  • This is great twice and made me sweat a little and didn’t further hurt my back. I’ll be checking out the rest of your workouts:)

  • Iam nt that much fatty…..but there is fat too….i dont know what to do…nd how to start with…..did thz workouts really helps…?plz gimme a suggestion…..
    Nd ur doing great work…influenciv…..��

  • I think I’ve been doing good at my intake of H2O, but I’m definitely struggling with decreasing my calorie intake. Help! How do I find out my BMI?

  • I’ve been watching your videos then going to the gym and trying them and….. My body always feels likes it’s going fall apart (in a good way ) and I’m starting to finally get some muscle

  • Girl please shut up, do you have any degrees or certifications in exercise/nutrition? If not, you should stop making these ridiculous opinionated videos. Stick to doing donkey kicks on the cable machine…because everything you said is really ignorant and harmful to your audience. Delete this video

  • I normally run, play tennis and do weight-training but I can’t play tennis or go to one of my gyms because everything is closed. So I am mainly running outside, doing some yoga at home and doing a little bit of weights with a barbell in the basement. The weight plates are very light compared to the gym though. If we’re locked in much longer, then I’ll get a proper barbell setup. In the meantime, I think that it’s important to get cardio up there if you’re an older person. My metric right now is VO2Max and it’s hard to optimize right now.

    I need a bigger house for more gym equipment.
