Welcome to "Ask Gilad" - a weekly blog written by Fitness Hall of Fame member Gilad. Thanks for reading.
Question: I own every DVD you have made and I just received the newest one, which I’ve been working out with for six months now. My favorite DVDs from you are the Quick Fitness program and X4 . In the past six months I have gained 4 pounds. I was 151 - I am up to 154 - I started out 172. I do not want to lose my current muscle mass but I want to lose the weight. Should I still continue doing "Quick Fitness," but now along with X4?
By the way, I do have the maximum ab work out as well and I love the ab workouts that you do in the floor with the medicine ball Core Challenge.
You should continue mixing up the DVD workouts the way you may have been. If you wish to 'up' the challenge then I would also incorporate the Lord Of The Abs DVD series (you already have Maximum Abs from the series)
The way to incorporate would be to do the Quick fit System for one week, The 4X on week two and the Lord Of The Abs series on week 3 (5 workouts) This 3 week cycle will definitely up your results, good luck and keep fit!
