If your opinion is "it waries, depends on you" then of course the question is how to know which one is right for you?Option 1 - Static Balance.

To lose weight, stick to a calorie budget every day and a regular exercise regime - every Tuesday is a chest and legs day etc. Advantage: can be easier. Disadvantages: it is boring to have regular routines, to have every day or month like…See More
