I just got a tracking number for my rack and bench, so im so happy right now, can hardly wait for them to arrive.
I went outside today and realized the sidewalk that circles my apartment building ... is a circle. I figured it'd be perfect for running/jogging around. It's cheaper than a treadmill, and right outside my door. Should I try to structure a day or two with something like HIIT? Like keep a good jogging pace, then do short sprints, and cycle. I might have misinterpreted HIIT, so bear with me.
I feel like I'm trying to do everything at once... my primary goal is losing getting body fat % down, secondary would be muscle gain... bulking and cutting aside, for someone who has never worked out before, is it possible to make some gains in strength, while losing fat at the same time, just by exercising and correcting my diet?
(P.S. Even though some people might find cardio useless, I think cardio might be a good idea all around, because heart problems seem to be common in my family, and I'd like to beat genetics if I could. Also, since my fat is mostly my gut, I figured a higher risk of diabetes isn't something to look forward to either... since I'm 21 and without those problems yet, I figured theres no time like the present to start workin out. I'll stop rambling now. Thank you )
