Why Strength For Fat Loss

Feb 4, 2020 | Strength

Want to get and stay lean? ?

Many people see their weight bounce up and down like a yo-yo. ??

Too many people struggle to keep the weight off because they don’t prioritise strength training. ?️‍♂️

They pound the treadmill to burn calories without considering the whole equation. ?

Why? If you want to lose weight you need a calorie deficit. ?

If you are in a calorie deficit then you will lose weight. When losing weight we can lose muscle and fat. When you don’t prioritise strength training a lot of the weight lost will be muscle. Muscle is metabolic tissue, meaning muscle helps us burn more calories. ?

Now the body is more interested in survival than weight loss.When we lose muscle we lower metabolic rate, in turn we lower how many calories we burn, in turn making it increasingly harder to achieve a calorie deficit. ?

PRO-TIP: When it comes to exercising, Prioritise strength training over cardio to build a leaner physique. ?
