Hand weightsIf you think cardio is the key to blasting belly fat, keep reading!

Research on dieters who don’t lift, shows that, on average, 75 percent of their weight loss is from fat, while 25 percent is from muscle. Muscle loss may drop your scale weight, but it doesn’t improve your reflection in the mirror and it makes you more likely to gain back the flab you lost.

Research shows that between the ages of 30 and 50, you’ll likely lose 10 percent of your body’s total muscle. Worse yet, it’s likely to be replaced by fat over time, says a study. This increases your waist size because one pound of fat takes up 18 percent more space than one pound of muscle.

You’ll Burn More Calories
Lifting increases the number of calories you burn while your butt is parked on the couch. That’s because after each strength workout, your muscles need energy to repair their fibers. In fact, researchers found that when people did a total-body workout with just three big-muscle moves, their metabolisms were raised for 39 hours afterward. They also burned a greater percentage of calories from fat compared with those who didn’t lift.

Lifting gives you a better burn during exercise too: Doing a circuit of eight moves (which takes about eight minutes) can expend 159 to 231 calories. That’s about what you’d burn if you ran at a 10-mile-per-hour pace for the same duration.

You’ll Get Into Shape Faster
The term cardio shouldn’t describe only aerobic exercise: A study found that circuit training with weights raises your heart rate 15 beats per minute higher than if you ran at 60 to 70 percent of your max heart rate. This approach strengthens muscles and provides cardiovascular benefits similar to those of aerobic exercise—so you save time without sacrificing results.

Our training programmes are designed to include all aspects of cardio training, weighted circuits, high Intensity and long and steady cardio. We will guide you to the your most successful route.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great
    though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

    Our Crystal friends know who they can help and
    will reach out to us in their own way. I’m telling this
    from my personal experience since I’ve been burnt more than once this
    way. Some experts are of the opinion that if started early in life,
    diet and exercise can maintain a flat tummy eliminating the need for a tummy tuck.
