Why cardio is out and strength is king

We used to think that we had to run a lot or load up on some cardio if we wanted to lose fat.

Weightlifting, we were told, wasn’t so good for losing weight. It just makes you bigger & bulkier, right?

Well, now we know that’s not true. Science shows that strength training is more effective than cardio if you’re trying to lose fat. It also produces a range of other super-important health benefits that everyone needs.

And, no, ladies – LIFTING WEIGHTS WILL NOT TURN YOU INTO THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We promise. Even 25-year-old boys who want huge muscles have to lift a ton of weight for a long time to get them. And that’s not what we’re talking about here.

The secret to weight training is this: Unlike cardio, it burns calories long after you’re done exercising. It raises your metabolic rate, burning more fat than cardio alone can do. Strength training also:

  • Makes shapelier bodies
  • Improves sleep
  • Builds stronger bones
  • Improves posture
  • Boosts energy, mood, and confidence

This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do cardio, too! Run, ride, spin, swim, and to your heart’s content (pun intended).
