I just started a rather intense workout plan. I never really used to workout. I'm eating better and working out 1-2 hours a day. However, all of a sudden I'm gaining an insane amount of weight in my abdomen area. Is this just water weight? What am I doing wrong?
sometimes starting out too extreme is bad.
first, people often get discouraged cause they cant do the exercise or movement, or hold that plank long enough, or do more reps....so people stop.
secondly, starting out too extreme cant put a lot of stress on the body.
if your working out 1-2 hours 6 days a week and just starting out, i would recommend only working out 3-4 times a week for 1-2 hours. Your body will need time to heal, if not, you will do more damage then good.
hurting your body by going extreme wont get you progress faster...
