My workout routine started again at a mid-life point in my existence a few months back. I bought an elliptical machine and started doing 30 minutes of cardio a day and put myself on a strict caloric intake.
Fast forward a couple of months and I felt good enough to but a tiny little weight set for curls, military presses, etc. And a bought some whey and creatine as well.
After a month of a high protien intake, and trying to build mass, I realized I had lost sight of my goal of losing weight. I’ve lost about 30 pounds, but I could still stand to lose about 20 more.
So, today, I’m back on a strict calorie diet and cardio, but my question is should I incorporate lifting into a routine designed to shed some body fat? And though I realize the answer is yes, I suppose a more accurate and useful question would be what kind of weight lifting routine should I be seeking to tone up and trim down?
