When did it get easier for you?
First off this is a question specifically for women who are over 250 lbs or were and workout regularly.
I have been working out consistently for 3 weeks, atleast 4 days a week of cardio, and maybe 2 days of strength. It's not my first rodeo, I used to be really fit in high school, not thin, but MUCH lighter than I am now. (Currently 282.4 down from 314). To the point, while I've seen fantastic strides in my aerobic health (far less out of breath) and have graduated from a 20 minute WATP video to a 30 WATP, I still have significant burning in my muscles. I do squats and lunges, I also mix up my videos with dance toning including a ballet segment that is quite vigourous and believe me, hard. I'm just wondering how long it took you to see a decrease in the "burn". It becomes so uncomfortable I find it hard to continue, when I know aerobically I could do more. It is really frustrating. I would also like to mention I know workout should never be EASY otherwise it's not a workout, and I also know, because I'm heavier it automatically will cause more muscle burn for me than say someone who is only 130 lbs.
So tell me, how long did it take you before the burn subsided and you had to push harder to get it?
