11 Mar Let’s Talk Fat Loss, Physique Results, And What Works.
Over the last few years in the fitness industry the “secret” of physique change is becoming more well known. That secret is this: strength training is FAR superior to cardio for leaning out, getting toned, and obtaining the physique we want. Strength training allows us to build muscle which:
➡allows us to better utilize food as fuel and stay leaner, more easily.
➡creates a more athletic body that can then push harder and stay leaner and healthier as a result.
Strengthening the body is the most effective thing you can do for physique change + injury prevention. If you try and do a lot of cardio at the same time you are training strength (within the same session), you lessen the benefits of the strength training. This is called “interference”. This is how people end up “skinny fat”. Yep, you may have burned a lot of calories-but you left yourself weak, more injury prone, and without shape to your physique. This is why we prioritize strength and endurance in our classes.
