🔥🤔CARDIO VS WEIGHT TRAINING?
Which one burns more fat?
Let's take a look at the two.
First and foremost, the most fundamental part of how much fat you have or body fat percentage you have is your nutrition.
If you workout and burn 1000 calories, but eat an additional 1500 calories that day, then all the effort is lost.
The cardiovascular activity I refer to here is relatively low intensity cardio lasting 30 mins to 45 mins per session.
Examples of this would be running, biking, swimming, etc.
This type of cardio is beneficial in several ways but when talking about caloric expenditure, it will burn calories during the workout. The moment u stop, no more calories are burnt, which is one of the biggest differences between this type of physical activity with weightlifting and HIIT.
Another issue with these types of workouts is that they can get boring and you can lose motivation to workout all together.
Weight training can prove to be even more advantageous for burning calories. Here are three ways weightlifting will burn calories.
1 - You will burn calories during the workout.
2 - Your metabolic rate will increase for a period of 24 hours, thus, burning extra calories.
3 - The more muscle mass you have the more calories are burnt.
NOTE: Weightlifting can be more enjoyable and motivational for the reason that there is a wide array of different training methods and techniques to go about and you can visually see the progress.
Although it may seem that one is more beneficial than the other, let's not forget that weightlifting requires more time to recover.
Also, choosing one over the other depends on your fitness objectives. For burning calories, it is better to have a combination of both.
