Weight Lifting Can Boost Your Weight Loss Efforts

Story at-a-glance -

  • In addition to high intensity interval training, weight lifting is an excellent way to get rid of that stubborn excess body fat
  • Working your muscles is the key to firing up your metabolism; muscle contraction is the “engine” that drives fat loss
  • Unlike traditional cardio, strength training causes you to continue burning more calories for up to 72 hours after the exercise is over through a phenomenon called after-burn
