The Golden Formula: Weights and Cardio


Posted by Chris R.

One problem people often face in weight loss is thinking they can accomplish it all through weights or cardio alone. I've found the effect of aerobic exercise plus weights a synergistic combination. Weight training, if done correctly, not only burns calories during activity but carries the added benefit of adding muscle, which boosts metabolism, and that in turn ups your daily calorie intake. Cardio training tends to shed a high number of calories for each session. My advice, if you can, would be to engage in both. A recent study on weights and cardio basically says you need to both.
