Hi to all! I've been posting in the Clydesdale portion because this is where I fit in. I have a question though that I thought might be more appropriate here, so here goes.
I've been riding about 6 wks. on a Specialized Crossroads comfort type...I know...I know...I found this forum after the fact and it fit my budget at the time. I've once again started lifting MT, W&F. Chest and back the first 2 and arms and shoulders the other 2. Not a perfect schedule but I can stick to it. I also do resistance crunches every workout as well as legs (extensions and curls) every workout. Calf raises I do several times every day whenever I think of it. 2 score and 6, when I used to lift religiously, none of us EVER did aerobics. Think Arnold embossed lifting belts, D-bol etc. Now I need to rebuild my upper body and create an aerobic one. Back in those days, the thinking was, you could work your legs and abs EVERY day because you used them every day...a lot. I know....things have changed in 25 yrs.
I've read that if you combine resistance training with aerobic workouts you should do the resistance first. A couple of problems here. When I ride after a workout I'm already trashed and don't do diddly for miles or time. Secondly, I'd like to know if any of you have any suggestions as to what to do about a resistance leg routine. I can manage days on and off for the workout within the week.
I know I've given you folks a mouthful but just things on my mind, hope they make sense.
BTW, have lost 20# on the nose as of Sat., now 230 and I am thrilled although I know a lot is water.
Any comments will be appreciated..Thank You.
