Resistance Training the Key to Permanent Fat Loss

strength trainingStrength Training for permanent fat loss.

There is no other form of exercise that is as beneficial as strength training when it comes to fat loss.

“Fat” loss and strength training belong in the same sentence. You might even say you can’t have one without the other they are so intimately entwined. It is the most critical form of exercise in your fat loss plans.

Resistance training will help with:

  • Enhances bone strength
  • Regulates hunger levels
  • Helps your ability to oxidize fats
  • Improves your overall mood
  • Improves your functional strength capacity
  • Improves lean muscle mass

Key compound movements to focus on:

  • Bench press
  • Bent over rows
  • Push-ups
  • Pull-ups
  • Lat pull-downs
  • Shoulder press
  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Lunges
  • Step-ups
  • Split squats
  • Leg press
  • Plank exercise

These exercises work so many different muscle groups at once that it saves time at the gym and you can finish a complete resistance training routine in 30 minutes. They also create the greatest metabolic response in the body possible.

The more muscle fibers you utilize during any single movement, the more total calories you burn and the faster you will spike your metabolism for hours to come after that session is complete.

Because these exercises are far more intense, you’ll get your heart rate up to a much higher level and you’ll keep it there thus providing some cardiovascular benefits at the same time. You won’t have to worry about doing additional cardio for health.

The best way to make your weight loss permanent is to naturally increase your metabolism...your bodies engine, so that you burn more calories between workouts.

We already know that the time spent in the gym is important but what most don’t realize is that the status of their “engine”, their metabolism, is just as important if not more so when out of the gym. The times spent in front of a computer or watching TV at night, sitting at your desk at work or even sleeping are the times that you need to automatically be burning calories.

A healthy balanced metabolism is working even when you are physically resting and the only way to increase your metabolism is to add muscle to your body. All you need is 30 minutes 2-3 times a week devoted to resistance training/strength training; adding muscle to your body.

Remember begin each workout with a 5 minute warm-up and end with a 5 minute cool-down. You could skip rope, march on the spot or walk up and own stairs to begin with and cool down with light stretching. Reserve any stretching for after your workout so that you do not risk pulling a muscle.

Ideally you should complete 3 workouts a week separated by a day off in between to rest your muscles. If you don’t rest in between you won’t be seeing results.

If you are ready to take excess weight off forever and keep it off and achieve the kind of health and fitness you dream abut then you must get both your mind and your body aligned and in sync…they need to be working together. “Rebound Free Weight Loss” can help you win the weight loss battle once and for all…but only if you take action!
