Newbie to Strength/Weight Training. Advice please.
I am the one who does constant cardio. Yes, i've lost weight (50 plus), but when it comes to toning and losing the last 15-20 lbs I was thinking weights would do the trick. Aside from the obvious that weight lifting should be incorporated. I have heard so many people raving about how weight lighting can really help you lose the last amount of weight and really help with toning. I mean that is clear, but I am a little lost. I am a little embarrassed about going into the weight lifting area since it is always so full of men and what to do in my actual routine.
I wanted to ask how long it took for all of you to see results and what results did you see? If you are okay with sharing your routine, that would be really helpful. I have already put together a leg workout routine, which I will put below. Feel free to critique, please.
3x15 and I also include 8-10 lbs of weight for the squats, lunges and calf raises.
leg press (this i haven't used yet, but next time will incorporate)
