Why Do Weight Training?


Why Do Weight Training?


Key points:

  • Cardio is like renting:
    • You always have to do the same amount (or more) to maintain your progress
    • It only has one major benefit – it burns calories
  • Weight training is like investing in a mortgage:
    • It burns calories but also builds muscle
    • Building muscle boosts your metabolism so you can eat more without putting on any fat
    • In the long run you can train less and still stay lean (unlike cardio)
  • Weight training…
    • BURNS calories & fat – just like cardio does
    • BUILDS muscle – adds curves to the right places and makes you firm and “toned”
    • BOOSTS metabolism – eat more without gaining weight (and even lose fat whilst eating more)
