Hey skimblers! Working out lately has been... Well, boring:/ cardio is no longer doing it for me. I feel burned out, bored, and [worse] skinny fat. I'd like a challenge, and I've decided to start heavy weight lifting!
I have so many questions... There's tons of resources online, but they are all so conflicting. If I google "weight lifting" I get a pretty solid amount of proven, scientifically correct advice. But if I look up "women's weight lifting", it's a whole different ball game! It amazes me how all these "experts" claim that *they* have all the answers on how I need to be training, and yet they all the advice they give is completely conflicting! So guys, what do you think? Do I need to be training different than a man?
Some of my main questions have to do with nutrition. What should I be eating, and how much? Do I need to eat at a deficit if my goal is to tone up? Is it possible to lose fat and build muscle at the same time? If not, which should I focus on doing first, and for how long? In case you haven't gotten it yet, I'm pretty lost >.< If you have any advice or tips, please share! Thanks :)
