Iv'e been considering competeing but as soon as I start to drop the weight I feel small and lose strength. Its a tough game. I got out the army in 08 and have never been able to get my cardio as good as it was when I was in. I'm a CPT so I have no trouble helping other's reach goals but I struggle with myself. Getting info from others is always a PLUS!

I'm no scientist but I thought there are 2 types of muscle fibers, slow twitch and fast twitch, or something of that nature. It is my understanding that working with weights hit mainly the larger fast twitch muscle fiber and increases overall strength and size as opposed to the type of muscle fiber that can go and go (think large sprinter legs vs your typical marathoner build who tends to be long and lean). Maybe that's all bunk but a stairclimber will help your cardio more than weights.
