Strength training can be an effective way to produce fat loss when using big exercises. Putting them together in series can accomplish several things:
- It increases Resting Metabolic Rate, which means greater calorie burn.
- It signals the body to maintain and build lean muscle, which is a big driver of calorie burn and metabolism.
- It produces a mild to moderate cardiovascular trainig effect by elevating heart rate becuse of the continuous movement.
- It efficiently uses available training time to get the most done in the least amount of time.
For each weight exercise, use challenging weights. For bodyweight exercises, use a challenging version (pushup with hands on a table vs.hands on the floor). Work hard, but don't overdo it to ensure full recovery before your next workout.
