Ask any person what is the most useful exercise for weight loss? And all will answer without hesitation: running. And here and there, it is – sit-ups! Many gym visitors propagated this myth, and run regularly, hoping to become a fry. Stupid mistake, dear! By the way, if you download Matt Stirling’s book “Customized Carb Cycling Solution” on the link at the bottom of the page, you will discover many more secrets that will help you lose weight even if you really like to eat food rich with carbohydrates. Cardio load burns fewer calories than people think. Medium-intensive 30 minute run will burn about 300 calories, while a glass of milk is 150. It’s a shame, isn’t it? But strength training can add muscle to your body and make your body burn calories more at a higher level, even if you’re just sleeping.
Imagine two twin brothers, one is engaged in sports, he exercises glands and other drinks like beer and considers that a good man should weight a lot. Both weight 80kg. However sportsmen will burn calories twice as much even when he’s asleep. Because muscles themselves require much energy for its sustenance even when not working. Now imagine that these guys have a brother Jack, a professional bodybuilder with a “dry” weight of 100 pounds. So, Jack will burn twice more calories daily than in the first case, and FOUR times more than in the second. How about such arithmetic? Any strength training causes your body to produce anabolic hormones, which triggers reactions in muscle tissue to grow, while running is fighting with this phenomenon. Work out and lose weight properly, my friends!
