You need to do 3 or 4 sets of 8 or 10 reps and lift a weight that is as heavy as you can bear, but not so your popping veins!!!! I do mine as a circuit as it gets your heart racing and gives a little cardio workout too. So i just hop from one machine to the other. OR you can have 30 seconds rest and do next set.....May be a good idea to join a gym until you get used so you know you are doing the exercise correct. 5 glasses of wine a week is not massive amounts, i reckon building some muscle and opting for smaller portions more often will do the trick.

You need to build some muscle mass. Yes, the body does get used to exercise and can get a bit "bored" with the same old routine. Muscle burns calories faster than that of an untoned muscle. Aim for 3 weight sessions a week working all the main muscle parts (back, chest,quads, hamstring, bicep and tricep and shoulder) and within 4-6 weeks you should see some improvement. also monitor your portion sizes. Aim to have smaller portions around 4-6 times a day rather than 3-4 larger meals a day. Hope that helps and i so wish i would take my own advise!!!! lol..... Ditching the wine would be a killer for me but it is empty calories im afraid. Tracey
I usually run 5 times per week, anything from 6.5km minimum to 9km. I am desperate to lose 2-3 inch off my waist and although i am not overweight i have a large waist band, I also do speed work and some hill running. What can i do>
I run 4-5 times per week and have weekend off. I am 32 years old and want to lose 2 inch on my waist, although i am not overweight i just cannot shift this stubborn bulk around my waist. I know you cannot spot reduce as well! I usually do 6-9k each day and add hill and speed training into my workouts. What should be my %hr for fat burn? HELP!!
