Weights or cardio

5 on June 16, 2020

I’m at the point where I want to start adding weights to my workouts. I want to try to tighten some of my flabby skin. Should I lift weights and do cardio workouts? Maybe switch every other day.

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.

I think it’s a great idea too. I would switch back and forth. You should only work an area of your body every other day (or so my friend who is a trainer says). Hopefully the flab will tighten up.

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.
