Whitney Simmons’ YouTube channel got me into strength training. Before I discovered her channel, it hadn’t even crossed my mind that women could (and should) weightlift. It’s not something I had ever been told. She really got me wanting to put on muscle and it really jump started my fitness journey. Needless to say, I am a fan. So when I heard she was coming out with her own fitness program I was very excited.
First of all: What is LISS? It stands for Low Intensity Steady State and is a type of cardio. It is generally not as high impact as HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training. Both have their benefits. When doing LISS the goal is to be in the “fat burning zone”, or 60% of your max heart rate, for 30 minutes or more.
