Cardiovascular exercise has long been the answer to burning calories quickly. Minute for minute it still beats weight training in the calorie-burning department. But it’s the long-term impact that weight training has on your body that may win you over though. Watch my video and I’ll explain how lifting weights can help you lose weight and shape your body…
- Boost Your Metabolism by 7-10% in 10 weeks. Study participants lifted heavy weights twice a week. That is, they performed 10 or fewer repetitions. They did so with a focus on major muscle groups. By raising your metabolism 7-10%, you can either eat more without gaining, or eat the same and lose weight.
- Change your size with the muscle toning effects of weight training. Muscle is more compact than fat. Choose to emphasize certain body parts and you can change your proportions. While cardiovascular exercise may also help you get smaller, you’re much more likely to have the same shape.
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you include some self-massage, called myofascial release in your quality exercise program you can “iron” out cellulite. Using a formula including cardio, weight training, and then myofascial release followed by stretching you’ll get the best results with cellulite.
