Best Type of Workout for Weight Loss

Aside from dieting, exercising is one of the most common strategies employed by those trying to shed extra pounds. It helps burn more calories, which plays a crucial role in weight loss.

However, with so many types of exercise, one can easily feel lost on what type of workout would be the most effective for their weight loss journey. The answer might surprise you…

It depends.

We are each different with varying degrees of fitness. Our bodies are unique and respond to different stimulus in different ways. There are some foundational truths we can count on to get started.

  1. Resistance training is KEY. Resistance training is the most effective workout for boosting your metabolism. Plainly stated lean muscle  burns fat and resistance training is key to building lean muscle.
  2. More Muscle = Higher Metabolism, the higher your metabolic rate the higher your caloric burn will be throughout the day as you complete your regularly scheduled life activities.
  3. Create a Calorie Deficit. The more calories your burn through a higher metabolic rate the greater the calorie deficit will be, even if you eat the same food. This calorie deficit is the main driver of weight loss.
