Importance of weight training for weight loss
Trina Remedios, Health Me Up Nov 9, 2013, 01.41PM IST

Cardio is considered the best way to lose weight, but don’t fail to undertake weight training or strength training exercises for weight loss.

Doing only cardio or aerobic workouts for weight loss is a big mistake. Here is why weight training is important for weight loss.

Weight training is not only for bodybuilders or to build muscle mass, but a great way to lose weight. Weight training for weight loss is associated with the term ‘muscle burns fat’. This implies that weight training induces weight loss, when stored fat is used as energy to exercise the muscles. Unlike cardio or aerobic workouts, weight training increases metabolism which induces fat loss even after your workout. Plus after weight training your body also needs oxygen at a higher rate.

Weight training for weight loss promises lean muscles and fat loss in a short period of time. Cardio helps you lose weight, but weight training makes you lose body fat and replace it with muscle, hence changing your body composition.

For women, weight training is important for boosting bone health there by reducing the risk of osteoporosis. While lifting a moderate amount of weight, there is a constant amount of pressure being exerted on your muscles, which in turn works your skeletal structure as well. This constant pressure causes the muscles to tear and grow eventually, while the bones supporting those muscles get stronger in the long run as well.
