OK, sorry to ping everyone two times in one morning, but I am pretty novice when it comes to exercise theory and still feel like in spite of trying to educate myself I don't get it all.
I know you aren't doctors, etc, but I was hoping for some feedback on my suggested exercise plan. I am 5 '11, 213Ibs, and have a pretty decent shape (hourglass). My knees tend to bother me when I do a lot of cardio, something I am hoping will decrease as I lose weight. I like to walk, and do that often. But I don't do much strength training. So here's my idea:
3x week strength training with a walk before hand - as I lose weight and my knees feel better I will upgrade to higher intensity cardio/more frequent cardio.
How does that sound? Is it even worth doing strength training, or will that just make me bulk up?
