Best Exercise For Fat Loss

If you could pick one workout to burn the most calories per minute, what would it be? The answer might be beneficial to those who are racing the clock at the gym, and want to get the most for their shortened time commitment. You can read an abstract of the study's results in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

Thirteen overweight men and women in their mid-30s were recruited to measure the calorie burning effects of traditional endurance training, mixed intensity interval training and circuit resistance training. Each of them performed one session of each workout type. The mixed intensity and weight training circuits worked statistically about the same, both burning more calories than typical endurance exercise. Overall, scientists chose mixed intensity training as the protocol with the greatest benefit potential.

True Strength Moment: If you really want to get serious about weight loss, you'll plan a workout program that incorporates running, swimming, cycling or another endurance effort with weight training. It's best to perform one type of exercise one session and wait until another day to take on an entirely different challenge. This gives your muscles at least 48 hours to completely recover from training. Make sure to include nutritional support for best results.
