How to Reach Your Fat Loss Goal
The majority of people we see have a fat loss goal but are not doing the right type of exercise to facilitate fat loss 😏
It’s common for us to think that we need to be killing ourselves with cardio when we want to lose body fat🚴🏼♂️🏃🏻♀️. But did you know that 👉🏻weight training👈🏻is the best type of exercise when fat loss is your goal❓❓❓❓
❗️Weight training helps you burn more calories every day❗️
Weight training is much more effective than cardio at building muscle, and muscle basically serves as a calorie-burning powerhouse in the body. Because of this, building muscle is the key to increasing your resting metabolism🌪 (how many calories you burn at rest)
Research has also shown that you burn more calories in the hours following a lifting session compared to a cardio workout.
This means that the calorie burning benefits of weights are not limited to when you are exercising. You keep burning calories after your workout is done!💪🏼🙌🏼🥳
Weight Training over Cardio
Another benefit of lifting over cardio is that lifting weights will allow you to completely reshape your body🤩. Cardio will generally help you lose weight, however, this weight loss is typically a combination of fat AND muscle😏
One thing that should be mentioned is that women should not shy away from lifting heavy weights in fear that it will cause them to develop large muscles❌. This is an unfortunate misconception😣. Females do not have high enough testosterone levels naturally to develop the same amount of muscle mass as males.
