    About a week ago I finished the RJ lean and strong workout. I can't even begin to describe how impressed I am by my development since the first week. I feel stronger now and have more energy than I've had since high school, and I think possibly even more. The results have been great in terms of that energy and strength development.

    That being said, however, I want to focus a lot more on fat loss. While I have a lot more strength overall, I don't feel like I've lost a ton of fat, which is fine since I've been building muscle. I might just be wrong and haven't seen it. Either way, I figure that if I want to lose the fat faster I should switch to a program with more cardio.

    I want to ensure, though, that in the process of ramping up cardio I'm not losing all that strength and muscle I've developed. I've been looking through the various other workout programs on the site, and I'm trying to figure out which one to go for. The half-marathon? Triathlon? Full marathon? Go through the lean and strong again?

    Any suggestions, or tips on how to go about picking one?

    Fat loss has more to do with nutrition than exercise, Chewey. If you're having trouble losing body fat - look in your kitchen cabinets....

    That's very good to know. So, since what I've been doing in terms of my workouts has been working so well at promoting muscle development and energy, and since I'm comfortable with it, I should probably just stick with that and change my diet following the guidelines you've talked to me about previously, yes?

    Or, maybe I'll change it up anyway. It would be cool to know that I could actually do a half-marathon or a triathlon.

    You won't lose muscle as long as you properly fuel before a run. If you're a beginning runner, I'd find a 5k-10k training program to start out with, then you could tackle the longer distances. You could also train for a sprint distance triathlon which would work your upper body as well...I guess it depends on whether you want to be muscular or toned.
