    Free Weights
    •Free weights include barbells, dumbbells, ankle weights and wrist weights. Along with gravity, free weights provide constant resistance unless you rest them on a surface. For example, if you’re doing a chest press on a bench and you rest the dumbbells on your chest between reps, then you’re not getting constant resistance. This would be true if you’re using any equipment, though. Otherwise, free weights give you constant resistance as they work your primary muscles in a concentric movement (think of the upward curl of a dumbbell curl) and your antagonist muscles on the eccentric movement (the lowering of the dumbbell back to the start position).

    Resistance Cables
    •Resistance cables, also called exercise bands or tubes, are inexpensive and offer constant resistance, versatility and portability. You can pretty much do any free-weight exercise with a resistance cable. Most include handles and come in a variety of lengths and “heaviness.” Some are easy to pull, and others offer a lot of resistance. Cables offer constant resistance as long as they are held taut because they always are straining to go back to their loose position, like a rubber band.

    Machines
    •Exercise machines with a weight stack attached to a cable also offer constant resistance. As you pull down, push out, pull up or pull down (depending on the starting position of the machine), the cables attached to the machine’s handles pull on the weight stack as it lifts up. This is during the concentric phase of the movement. Because the opposite motion is down, the weight stack will lower. The same exact amount of weight is being lifted throughout the exercise. Companies like Bow flex and Cybex make constant-resistance machines.

    Isometrics•Contrary to constant-resistance machines and training methods, isometrics offers static resistance. Isometrics is simply about contracting or engaging your muscles without using movement. Placing your palms together and pushing would be an isometric exercise. Performing a plank exercise where you hold yourself in a push-up position is also an isometric exercise. It only will increase strength in that position, which some consider a downside to isometrics. However, isometrics complement constant-resistance training so that you are building strength during concentric, eccentric and isometric phases of an exercise. The next time you do a push-up, hold yourself an inch off the ground for a few seconds before pushing back up and you’ll feel how much harder the exercise is.

    Variable Resistance
    •There are machines that do not use the same kind of pulley system that constant-resistance machines do. These machines offer changing levels of resistance during an exercise. The reasoning behind this type of training is that a machine’s leverage will neutralize a person’s leverage, so his muscles must work equally hard throughout each exercise repetition. Nautilus is one manufacturer that makes variable-resistance machines

    Swimming is the best overall calorie burner – if thats not possible, then running – so the treadmill will burn the most calories.

    I think that your diet is the most important part of losing weight, my boyfriend is an MMA fighter and he has to kut weight a lot and during those times he won’t eat anything white (bread, rice, pasta, crackers) only wheats is he has to or brown rice. Also nothing can be fried only grilled or baked and cut back on the seasoning. Really just watch the carbs, but to make sure you have energy still eat more protein. I myself have found that cardio is the best way to lose weight fast bench pressing and all that heavy tough stuff just ends up putting or mixing muscle and fat so you don’t get the desired results. The tredmill and bike would probably be best I’m sure there are other things you can use to get your heart rate pumping and its at that point that you may want to ask one of the trainers on the floor which machine would give you the best cardio performance. However, I myself like dance fitness in my home 20 mins will get you tired 30-40 minutes later I’m panting and sweating like I worked out at the gym =) Hope this helps

    First…ban words like “quick”, “quickly”, “fast”, “easy”, “how long”…from your weight loss vocabulary.
    Get rid of the high expectations that come with it as well.
    Either that or you’ll be as doomed as a mouse running around in a cage and going nowhere.

    Second…guys use gym equipment to GAIN weight, to gain as much muscle mass as they can (like 5lbs/months), get super stronger, get delectable six-packs and protruding sexy biceps so they can beat the whatever out of you when playing Ultimate (Frisbee). And those girls go crazy for a nice set of biceps and a nice muscular butt.

    If you’re a guy and you feel like you need to lose fat reserves, you should not look at gaining muscle mass as just “gaining weight” but revving up your metabolism.

    Have a serious look at your diet. Men really have to eat a lot of calories to make fat reserves.

    Since you cannot burn fat reserves while doing weight training (it’s anaerobic so fat burning shuts down because it’s too intense…no enough oxygen to process fat cells) do some low intensity fat burning aerobics to burn the extra fat (like biking, walking/jogging…).

    I found this on this website. There are more tips and info.

    1. If what you are eating has less than 1 carb, count it as 1 carb just to be sure.

    2. Totally avoid caffine at least for the first two weeks on the program.

    3. Drink a MINIMUM of 8 glasses of plain water or seltzer daily.

    4. Don’t weigh yourself more than once a week

    5. Take starting measurements as well as weight – sometimes you’ll lose inches before pounds

    6. Avoid any type of “low carb” sweetener for the first two weeks

    7. Don’t compare your loss to someone else’s – this is a YMMV thing (your milage may vary)

    8. Stalls are common around the third week so don’t panic

    9. If you follow your plan to the T and don’t lose, consider Candida as a possibility and avoid vinegar, cheese, mushrooms and any other fermented food

    10. Have bloodwork done before starting so you have a comparison

    11. Cholesterol can be elevated in the first few weeks til your body adjusts – make sure your doctor knows that you’re doing low carb and when you started

    12. Don’t blame the diet if you don’t read your plan book — blame the diet if you don’t read the labels — Don’t blame the diet if you don’t follow the diet

    Hi there,

    I think you might be getting a little mixed up with what you want exactly. You say that you want to lose “weight” but that means you might want to get rid of some muscle too. You then say that you’d like to “shape” (I’d call it tone) your body a little which implies you want to build some muscle. I’m not trying to pick at your question – I just want to clarify the point for you.

    To answer it in the best way, I am going to look at it as if you want to get rid of fat AND build muscle at the same time. If you’re looking to “trim” and “tone” your body, and espectially because you suggest you are not that overweight, I would suggest you start performing more intensive aerobic exercises such as jogging. I wouldn’t think you need to change the whole way you eat or go on a diet because if you’re wanting to build muscles – it’s better to do it all with exercise.

    Exercises like jogging won’t exactly “build” your muscles on your stomach but they will help reduce the extra fat around there. Depending on how fit you are, you should go on daily or bi-daily jogs of around a mile. To build muscles, you should concentrate on anaerobic exercises such as sit-ups to help build muscles.

    These muscle-building exercises will give your muscles the toning and training they need to grow and become more prominent. To start to see a real difference with sit-ups, you should be looking to do no more than 100 every day (more than that will often hurt your muscles).

    If you stick to doing those two forms of exercise – jogging and sit-ups, you should see real improvements in a week or two. Remember, you should do them as often as you can (I.E every single day).
