Strength Training vs. Cardio for Fat Loss

If you want to lose fat, get your a$$ off the eliptical machine and start hitting the weights!!!

I wrote another guest blog post for GainFitness about why strength training is far superior to traditional cardio for fat loss.  Real fat loss is not about how many calories you burn the one hour that you exercise, it is how your choice of exercise effects the number of calories you burn THE OTHER 23 HOURS OF THE DAY.  Strength training is superior in this respect.  Here’s the link:

    I’ve been saying this for ages, high intensity low repetition exercises are better for fat loss than low intensity high repetition or indeed cardio work outs. People can not get away from the cardio for weight loss myth though
