In addition to this, you must eat proper foodcombinations, taking into account your unique body type.
These are the most important steps toward creating a lean, healthy body!
By doing this consistently, you will increaseor speed up metabolism and the ability of your body to burn more calories then ever before!
The main difference between cardio
and weight training…
Doing aerobics (cardio) burns body fat directly!
The amount of calories that you burn will depend on the actual duration and the intensity of your cardio exercises.
The after-effect of cardio training is minimal, so the most important thing to remember is that you are burning most of the calories while you are actually doing cardio, and not after!
Weight training is another way to speed up metabolism, but not directly like with aerobics!
Muscle is a metabolically active tissue, and your body needs to spend energy (calories) to maintain it.
This means that, the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be, and the more calories you will burn–during rest!
Building new muscle takes time…
Building muscle is not that easy, especially for women who have less of the muscle building hormone, testosterone.
Only genetically gifted individuals with mesomorph dominant body types have a natural ability to easily gain muscle mass!
In addition to this, these very lucky individuals, do not have problems with carrying unwanted body fat.
Here is another thing to consider…
–Most bodybuilders take steroids to build the large muscle mass that you see them displaying in the magazines or on television.
For most people building muscle is a process that takes a long time, and is totally under your control.
During your weight loss program, weight training is necessary to maintain your muscle, so that your metabolism doesn’t slow down.
Building new muscle is something you can consider once you reach your ideal weight.
Still, many people, especially women are afraid of becoming bulky. We want you to understand that building muscle is a process that is slow and is fully under your control.
If you ever feel you are building *too much* mucle, you can always switch to maintaining it, without any problems!
