Bodybuilding For Fat Loss

  1. 1. Bodybuilding for Fat loss: Is it a good idea? <br />
  2. 2. Nowadays, all over the Internet and in offline world there is a lot of confusion behind what kind of exercise will actually burn fat and build muscle at the same time. <br /> <br /> It is a common concept that cardio exercise burns fat and bodybuilding type of exercises build muscle. It is not really a gospel fact. <br /> <br /> Did you know that weight training actually burns 53% more fat than cardio after the exercise schedule is over? <br /> <br /> It is a fact, which is not known well enough or not utilized by trainers.<br />
  3. 3. It is ascertained by sports scientists and medical professionals that each extra pound of muscle you gain helps you in burning 14-15 calories more energy from your resting metabolism. <br /> <br /> This means for no extra effort, even while you are resting, you will be burning more fat simply by having more lean muscular mass in your body. <br /> <br /> Please remember, primarily muscle is the fat burning engine of your body. It raises the resting metabolic rate of your body. <br /> <br />
  4. 4. If you have less time to exercise then you can opt for bodyweight exercises or sandbag type of exercises, which combine both aerobic and resistance type of exercise simultaneously. <br /> <br /> Do you know one more advantage of these type of exercises? <br /> <br /> They will build lots of functional muscle and they will burn fat but only to a degree that you will have moderate or ideal level of body fat. <br /> <br /> Don’t get me wrong though! You should get rid of excess body fat but an ideal level of fat is required for our physiological functions. <br /> <br />
