How is strength training to muscle failure for calorie-burning? I've lost thirty pounds in the last couple months (got about 70 more to go haha I'm a 255-pound computer gamer) with diet and exercise, but most of my exercise came from a job I no longer have. I'm looking to make some routines. And I'm pretty broke since delivering pizzas doesn't pay as much as my old job
How effective for weight loss is a routine like this:
Push-ups until muscle failure (usually takes me ~20)
Sit-ups until muscle failure (about 45)
Leg lunges until muscle failure (a few times up and down the hallway)
I can't seem to find any decent hours on how many calories I've been burning when I do this. And motivation to work out has been a little low since I have no idea if I should do this, or if it's a waste of time and I should just go ride my bike for half an hour.
I ask all this because after losing my previous job, my weight's been sitting still at 255. I need to formulate a plan, and to keep motivated I need to know what's effective and what isn't.
The only exercise I have a problem with is running/jogging. This is purely out of concern for my knees (which is half the reason I want to lose this weight anyway lol). I heavily prefer bike riding over running.
