Oh dear - i've hardly been to the gym all summer! costs way too much!
So I actually paid to go to the gym today as my contract ran out on Friday. It's only £2.80 student rate so that's not bad. But it may get to the point where I can't afford that, plus I'll be going to uni in 2 weeks 5 days (yay). I was wondering if I suddenly cut out the weights and carry on doing just cardio, will it make much difference?
I did 35 minutes on the treadmill, did some jogging, brisk walking on an incline and some jogging on a incline. The whole brisk walking thing on the incline is really working my stomach, I can feel it working. I might go and cycle into town in a minute, I'm so bored and need something to do. I really hate sitting around doing nothing.
more calories are burnt doing cardio (i would imagine) so i think in terms of weight control, doing cardio is probably better for your body anyway. If you keep up the cardio, i don't think you will suddenly put on lots of weight because you've only cutr out the weights.
Keeping the diet on track too - so not too much binging.
The cycling should be good too.
I wish my gym did a student rate - at least £10 per visit, or 12 month contract but you have to give them 3 months notice when you leave. At least i'll be back at uni in less than 4 weeks!
I see it as cardio is for burning calories, weights really just tone... but thats my opinion...
I just use the towels there lol! And hope no-one sees it before I can clean it. Mind you I'm always a mess at the gym so I don't suppose it matters.
