Will lifting weights make me bulky?

NOPE!  Weight lifting is a very important part of any person’s fitness program.  It will help you build lean muscle mass, help improve your endurance and increase bone density.  If you are concerned about looking like a massive bodybuilder you can stop worrying.  You have to train specifically, and in most cases for years, to get big like a bodybuilder.

Does muscle weigh more than fat?

Heck NO!  Muscle doesn't weigh more than fat.  It is more dense than fat.  Fat spreads out over more surface areas on your body. 1 pound is still 1 pound.

What’s the best diet for my fitness goals?

Diets are tricky!  There isn’t one type of diet that will work for everyone and really dieting often sets most people up for failure.  Eating well-balanced, planned meals is really the best way to see results.  This enables you to eat healthy without giving up all the foods you like to eat.  This also gives you more room to meet any dietary restrictions you might have.  When it comes to food, simple is always the best.

Can’t I just do cardio to lose weight?

It’s not recommended.  Cardio will help you lose weight.  But too much cardio will make you lose muscle after a certain point.  It’s why people that just do cardio end up with no muscle definition.  And why people stall out on weight loss.  A balance of resistance training, cardio, and diet are the proper way to achieve weight loss.

Protein is EXTREMELY important for weight loss and building lean muscle mass.  A good rule of thumb is to eat 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight in kilos(i.e. if you weigh 160lbs you divide by 2.2 160/2 = 80 grams per day ).  Don’t skimp on this!  It is very important to achieve many different fitness goals.

Is walking exercise?

This is a tough one because many people rely on walking to find some sort of healthy balance in their lives.  The short answer is NO, but let’s explore the difference between PHYSICAL ACTIVITY and EXERCISE:

  • Physical activity is any movement that is carried out by the muscles that require energy. In other words, it is any movement a person does.
  • Exercise is, by definition, planned, structured, repetitive, and intentional movement. Exercise is also intended to improve or maintain physical fitness.
  • So walking is considered Physical Activity but it is still a good way to promote a healthier lifestyle.
