6 REASONS WEIGHT LIFTING IS ESSENTIAL FOR WEIGHT LOSS
6 Reasons Weight Lifting is Essential for Weight loss

Recent studies prove that if you want to lose fat mass, you must lift weights and gain muscle. Anaerobic exercise is especially essential for those who are trying to get rid of stubborn fat.

 

 

Here are 6 important reasons why you need to lift weights on your weight loss journey:

 

1. Weight lifting makes you gain muscle

When you lift weights, you build lean muscle tissue, and so you indirectly lose fat because more muscle means a higher metabolism. For every kg of muscle you build, you burn an extra 100 calories at rest, even when you are not doing anything.

 

 

2. Weight lifting burns more calories than cardio

If you are trying to lose weight, cardio exercise does help you to lose fat; however, lifting weights burns lots of calories too; moreover, lifting weights has a greater afterburn effect. Your body continues to burn even after you are done with your workout - when you are resting or even sleeping.

 

 

3. Weight lifting saves you time

Cardio and aerobic exercise take plenty of time. If you are someone who is super busy and have no time to exercise, then one hour daily might seem like an impossible task. However, when it comes to lifting weights, you can perform half an hour, three days a week, and lose fat.

 

 

4. Weight lifting gets you ripped

Let’s talk honestly now. Have you ever heard a man achieving 6-pack abs without weight training? Losing weight with diet and cardio will leave you with loose skin and skinny fat. You might look good in clothes, but not so hot at the beach.

 

 

5. Lifting weights maintains muscle mass

A side effect of restrictive dieting is losing muscle mass along with the fat. Weight training will help you preserve your muscle mass and replace your lost muscle, preventing your metabolism to slow down.

 


6. Weight lifting is safer for dieters

When you are overweight, jogging and running for long hours can put too much pressure and stress on your joints. Weight lifting, however, can help you build strong and healthy joints. Weight training will also help to protect your bones and prevent osteoporosis.
