Question I am trying to lose weight and have been doing kickboxing two days a week, as well as yoga 1-2 times a week, and zumba three days a week. Should I be adding strength training to my routine or do you think yoga and kickboxing involve enough strength training already? Thanks for your help!
Answer I would keep as is, but if you don't feel like you are developing the muscle tone you are looking for then maybe replace say zumba with strength training.
Also when it comes to losing weight, make sure you are eating the right foods. Eating a good healthy diet helps speed along the weight loss.

I have a nice report that discusses what you would need to do to be successful with your speed program.
