When I first started Fat X 101 back in 2008, I had a weekly segment where I would answer reader submitted questions. By popular request, I’m bringing it back and titling it “Burning Questions”. If you have a fat burning, workout, diet and or any other fitness related question, feel free to e-mail me, or contact me via one of my social media accounts and I will answer it in Burning Questions.
Today’s question was sent to me via Facebook:
Wondering if you can give some advice. I haven't really worked out in about 3-4 yrs but now I finally got my ass in the gym. Been going steady for 5 weeks now doing light weights 15-20 reps for 3 sets on everything plus cardio. I want to train in kickboxing , BJJ and boxing at my gym. I know if I go heavy on the weights I'm going to bulk up but I'm afraid my range of motion will be affected ( it's not that great to begin with). Should I stay with light weights or should I go heavy now and how can I improve my range of motion if I do? Thanks.

First, congrats on getting back to exercising. Any exercise is better than no exercise, but, I hope I can help you get the best and most out of the time you have to spend on exercise and your fitness and fat burning goals.
