🏆5 Reasons Why Weight Training is the Superior Method for Fat Loss

If you’ve been doing hours of endless cardio and frustrated with that stubborn belly fat…this is for you🫵

 

👉Here’s the scoop: Many of us are led to believe that the more cardio we do, the more fat we burn. While it’s true that cardiovascular exercises increase heart rate and burn calories during the activity, the story doesn’t end there.

 

Here are 5 Big Reasons Why Weight Training is the Superior Method for Fat Loss

 

1️⃣ Afterburn Effect: Intense weight training is the superior method to induce the “Afterburn”. Post-weight lifting, your body keeps burning calories while you’re “Netflix-in’ and Chilln” thanks to the Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) effect. 📺🔥

This is similar to saying your engine will be idling at 2,000 RPMs instead of 500 while at rest (for up to 24 hours or so). Your body literally needs to work harder to recover… 

As your body is trying to restore oxygen content in your tissues, you’ll see an:

🌬️Increased ventilation rate

💓Increased cardiac output

⚕️Increased catecholamine production

💪Increased rate of PC resynthesis

♨️Increased in body temperature

2️⃣ Muscle Mass Matters: More muscle = a higher resting metabolic rate. Translation? Your body becomes a calorie-burning powerhouse, even in sleep mode. 🛌💥

When you build more muscle, you’re upgrading your engine (making your 4-cylinder a V-8)…. You should aim to become the F-350 Gas Guzzler instead of the Prius (no…this doesn’t you’re getting bulky 🤦)

Think about it… would you like it if I told you that you can eat an extra 400-500 calories per day from what you’re doing now…and STILL LOSE FAT? 🤷

3️⃣Insulin Sensitivity: Lifting weights improves insulin sensitivity, ensuring sugar from your meals fuels YOU, not your fat stores. 🍬➡️💪 Additionally, this will assist in lowering your A1C if you’re pre-diabetic or Type II (one of the main components you need to reverse diabetes)

4️⃣Variety: There is only so much you can do with steady-state cardio…. With weight lifting, there’s endless variety to keep you engaged and your body guessing. 🎲

5️⃣Optimal Hormonal Response: Resistance training tweaks your hormones in all the right ways, boosting those involved in muscle growth and fat metabolism. 🎉 A few that you’ll see improve will be:

✅Testosterone – Yes…for woman too (and this is a good thing)

✅Growth Hormone – Yup…naturally

✅IGF-1 – A lesser known, but KEY player in a healthy and lean body

👆All 3 of these hormones are needed and vital for good health. Together, they will help your body metabolize fat, build lean muscle, and ultimately boost metabolism.

In Simple Terms: If cardio is like renting a calorie-burning apartment, weight lifting is like owning a calorie-burning mansion. 🏠➡️🏰 Build more muscle, and watch your body transform into an efficient, fat-burning machine that works for you round the clock.
