STRENGTH TRAINING FOR FAT LOSS
In today’s post, I wanted to address why strength training is the single most important thing for fat loss. Even more important than cardio.
WHY YOU SHOULD STRENGTH TRAIN FOR FAT LOSS
When someone sets out to lose 10 to 20 lbs of fat, this usually winds up with them doing an extreme crash diet and tons of cardio. The problem is that they are going to lose a lot of muscle in the process.
Strength training is needed to maintain muscle to ensure that all the weight you lose is body fat, leaving you look healthy, fit, and sexy.
The research is quite clear that strength training will help preserve muscle mass even while in a calorie deficit.
And best of all, if you’re new to training, you can even build muscle while losing body fat. You can accomplish this without being in the gym 5 to 6 times a week.
All you need is 3 strategic strength training sessions each week to reap the benefits.
WHAT STRENGTH TRAINING FOR FAT LOSS ULTIMATELY COMES DOWN TO
Say you take a girl that’s new to weight lifting and weighs around 160 lbs, and have her cut down to around 140 lbs.
With the proper strength training in place, this will pretty much guarantee that all the weight she loses (20 lbs) is all from body fat.
And there is also a great chance that she will put on 4 to 5 lbs of pretty muscle that will give her body incredible shape. If she only diets and hits cardio hard, she’ll most likely lose muscle, and thus, less fat, and consequently, not look as she hoped for.
So for girls and guys, building a lean and chiseled physique ultimately comes down to strength training and dialing in nutrition for fat loss.
If you know a guy or girl that needs to hear this, make sure to share it with them.
