Cardio-Strength Training For Safe Weight Loss

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Answer is Fitness Weight Training in Foxboro, MA

If you are trying to lose weight, you know the drill. The formula is pretty simple. You need to burn more calories than you consume. Some people attempt this by opting for fad diets. Most fad diets are unsafe considering the unnatural ways they restrict important nutrients in exchange for rapid weight loss. You can consider them as unbalanced diet to lose weight easily with minimal need for exercise. But when food intake is unbalanced, expect some nutrient deficiencies surfacing to your body.

Still the safest and most efficient way to lose weight is a good blend of cardio exercises and strength training, and a healthy low-calorie diet. Why is cardio and strength training considered key component to weight loss:

  • Increasing your heart rate within safe heart rate zone stimulates the body to burn more calories to cope up with the energy consumed to sustain the activity.
  • Strength training can help you gain more muscles. When you gain more muscle mass, your metabolism will bump up as well.
  • When you burn calories through exercise, you no longer have to slash more calories from your regular diet so long as you don't overeat right after you do your workout.
