If there’s any one area of my fitness I’ve ignored recently it’s been strength. I used to lift weights a few times a week, but with the demands of training for running and cycling events I’ve stopped that part of my routine.
I need to restart it.
Strength building may or may not help me lose weight, but it will help me lose body fat. And I really ought to be better at strength building than aerobic exercise–I have the body for it.
Beginning this week, I’m going to integrate more strength building into my routine. And hope it helps.
