TEXT A PT

Men's Health (UK) - - Ask MH -

I need to lose some se­ri­ous tim­ber. So, what should I start with: weights or car­dio?

I’d make sure you’re reg­u­larly hit­ting 10,000 steps first, then start think­ing about work­outs.

OK, I’ll walk to and from work. Now, what about that train­ing?

Car­dio is safest af­ter a hia­tus. Do three steady-state ses­sions a week: a gen­tle run, or a swim.

Af­ter two weeks, swap one of your ses­sions for HIIT, to push your body harder.

Does that mean I should avoid the weights room com­pletely?

Un­til your car­dio feels eas­ier, yes. Then add a weights day.

Are there any par­tic­u­lar ex­er­cises I should do?

Train the larger mus­cle groups with squats and dead­lifts – you’ll burn more fat that way.
