PostSubject: Why weight training can help you lose weight   Wed 19 Nov - 10:34

Contrary to popular belief, weight training CAN help you lose weight. Yes, in the first few weeks you will gain a few pounds of muscle but in the long term you will burn fat and find your metabolism working much faster than it has ever done.

Here are some PROVEN, well known facts:

  1. Weight training can raise a person's metabolic rate for as long as 12 hours after exercising whereas aerobic exercise only manages the same for around 2-3 hours afterwards. Weight lifting can help minimise the metabolic downturn that occurs as you get older. NOTE: weight training doesn't burn as many calories as cardio, it significantly increases average daily metabolic rate - the perfect foundation for losing fat.
  2. A pound of muscle burns five to 6-10 calories daily whereas a pound of fat only burns around 2 calories daily.
