I think weights are a great idea. I’ve been told that lifting weights is the way to go for tightening up loose areas because it gets “filled in” with muscle. I lift small 2lb weights daily and have seen minor improvements. I’m hoping to increase the weight gradually.
Weight training exercises are your best bet towards tightening loose skin and building muscle mass. Drinking a lot of water also helps the skin to become tighter, smoother, and also gives it a more radiant look. Balancing this out with cardio workouts is the way to go!
I didn’t know that drinking water helps loose skin. I drink a lot of water but didn’t know that. I’ve set up a weekly workout routine. I’m going to lift weights (all over body) Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. I’ll do cardio Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
I didn’t know that drinking water helps with loose skin either. Why is this?
I would add weights into the workout if I was you. The sooner you’re able the better chance you have at toning the extra skin.
My main cardio is walking, and I make myself go upstairs extra times a day. I have hand weights that I don’t use nearly enough. I don’t like using them but totally get that they’re really good for you.
