How to lose 10 pounds

by laculleton

I've gained 10 pounds since last year. I started working out again in February. At first I did a lot of elliptical and stair climber. I was going to the gym twice a day. Then I just started going once daily, doing cardio like the treadmill, stairmaster, bike but also mixing in some weights.

I don't eat too bad and I don't consume alcohol. I can't seem to lose the last 10 pounds and I'm really insecure about it. It's bringing me down so much. Please help! I'm 5 feet tall and weigh 110 lbs. I'm 21 year old female.

lose the last 10 pounds tips
by: Monica

Hi and thanks for posting your question. Your story about going to the gym twice a day reminds me of what I was doing wrong back when I was trying to lose 30 pounds of excess baby fat. It's the same mistake that many other people make so don't feel bad and try not to stress the solution to this problem is easy and can help you shed the last 10 pounds in 6 weeks (I'm not kidding). Here's what you need to know to make this happen the stress free way:

1. More isn't better in fact longer workouts can actually cause weight gain, injuries, and mess with your motivation and self esteem too (as you already know). Limit your workouts to 45 min. at most.

2. Workout daily but try the schedule below instead:

day 1: hiit fat burning circuit 20 min. + hiit cardio workout 20 min. + stretching 5 min.
day 2: moderate intensity cardio + core exercises or toning exercises 30-45 min.
day 3: repeat day 1 but workout much harder than day one and try to shave 5 min. off your circuit workout
day 4: moderate intensity cardio + yoga or pilates or more core work 30-45 min.
day 5: hiit circuit + hiit cardio (same intensity as day one)
day 5: easy or fun recovery activity of your choice (hiking, swimming, dance, whatever you love)
day 6: moderate intensity cardio (30-40 min.)

3. Change up your workouts every 4-6 weeks so your body doesn't plateau. Keep the blueprint above just switch out your exercises, your machines, your activities. This keeps your body in fat burning mode.

4. Don't rely just on weights or machines. Try mixing in some intense bodyweight exercises into your workouts. Combine burpees, jumping jacks, pushups, bodyweight rows, mountain climbers, etc. with weights and with cardio machines too. Check out the boot camp section for more ideas.
