Which Strength Training Methodologies Should I Use?

It’s really a matter of taste and preference. I have had success using all of the above strength training methodologies. And not to overwhelm you, but there are so many more out there. These are a great starting point. Anything beyond them is outside the scope of this website.

The important thing is that you stay focused on your specific goals, exercise regularly and safely, and continue to change your program periodically. Changing strength training methodologies is a fantastic way to prevent plateaus.

Strength training is really a magic bullet. It seems to help us in so many ways. Not only does it burn fat and add nice definition, it can actually make us feel happy and accomplished. I’ve yet to meet someone who feels worse about life after a strength training session :)

Take your time and read through each strength training method. I outline a lot of ways you can bust through plateaus and get great results.

In the end it is all up to you. What style you choose, what days you work out, what results you see. Sometimes it is difficult to weed through all the (mis)information out there.

      Hi, Hhennie.

      Not sure what exactly you’d be looking for, but my Melt the Fat ebook has a bunch of routines that you can use. Also this page shows you how to do the Basic 3 Sets of 12 style.

    I would like to share your blog on Pinterest; however, since there are no photos, I don’t know how I could do that. I am in training right now due to bad knees and a host of other issues. I do a combo: day one, high weights, low reps and day two; high reps, low weights. Getting strong is equally as important as losing weight. I am currently 261 pounds at 5’4″ and my mini goal is 10 pounds of weight loss by the end of May. I also do up to 30 minutes cardio every other day right now on the stationary bike. Once my legs are strong enough I will graduate to the elliptical which is great for strengthening the core muscles as well. Thank you for providing this website. It is welcomed by many of us plus sized girls that want to be more active but have roadblocks.

      Hi, Totallymomma.

      Thanks for the comment! When I created a lot of these pages I didn’t add photos in, but now I wish I did because of Pinterest! I’ll start adding images to new stuff I write.

      And congrats on your plan and weight loss. You’re doing fantastic!
