Lift Weight to Lose Weight

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

A new study confirms that strength training is an important in shedding the body of extra weight.

No doubt, aerobic exercise burns calories. However, the body’s metabolism quickly returns to pre-exercise levels, within 30 minutes.

Resistance training, according to the researchers, leads to increased calorie burning for up to two hours after the workout is over.

There is a downside. Weight training usually results in a corresponding increase in weight due to increased muscle mass.  Therefore, there needs to be a balance between weight training and cardiovascular activities to get the best benefits.
