Gael!! I need a trainer!! I'm stuck with my last 10lbs n can't get rid of them!!

Question: Gael!! I need a trainer!! I'm stuck with my last 10lbs and can't get rid of them!!
    • Gael Guevara, CPT What are you currently doing with your workouts each week?
    • I do Turbo Kickboxing 3-4 times a week and just started doing weights this past week
    • Gael Guevara, CPT That's great, it looks like you are incorporating cardio really well into your week. Now, what you need is to build muscle so that will continue to burn calories hours after your workout as your muscles recover/repair and get stronger. Keep it simple and stick with exercises/movements that work the most amount of muscles at a time. The more muscles you move - the more calories you burn. Don't waist time with dumbell curls when you can do pullups and pushups.
    • Other exercises that are staples for any program are squats, deadlifts, and lunges for the lower body. Once you get those down everything else is icing on the cake. Also, because your goal is to lose weight, try to stick to weight that challenges you and do 12 to 15 reps, pick about 4 exercises and work them in to a circuit.
    • Move from one exercise to the other without rest and then rest for 30 seconds between the circuits. Repeat 4 to 5 times.
    • Try it out and let me know how it goes. I'll be posting more exercise info and circuits on my blog so be sure to check it out at
