Did you know that resistance, or strength, training helps burn fat better than cardio?

By preserving muscle, it helps ensure the weight you lose is fat! When you use resistance bands, dumbbells, cables, or even your own body weight to work out, you use a wide variety of muscles to burn calories. Using these muscles helps increase your metabolic rate. The higher your metabolic rate is, the more calories you burn at REST!! That’s correct, you will burn more calories at rest!

The benefits of resistance training are endless

Less fatigue, better sleep, improved joint function and increased bone strength. Even mood and self-esteem can improve!

Many videos on resistance band workouts, or beginner dumbbell workouts can be found online. If you don’t have equipment, no problem, look up videos on body weight and isometric workouts. And remember to modify it to your level of comfort. — Here are videos of body weight and isometric workouts

We all want to be healthier, and for many of us, that means being smaller or weighing less, but being stronger may help us with long-term, and overall health and success.
