Lifting Weights for Weight Loss
Controlling your diet is the key to losing weight and fat; there’s no doubt about that. But if you want to achieve maximum changes in your body composition—gain lean muscles and burn more body fat—weight training is also essential along with clean eating.
Aside from making you stronger, weight training also boosts the metabolism and builds lean muscles, which in turn will speed up weight loss.
Joining group exercise classes using light weights is okay, it’s a good jumpstart in making your body comfortable with lifting, but note that this type of lifting focuses more cardiovascular health. I suggest you try more serious weight lifting exercises with increased resistance like squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, etc. to achieve your maximum weight loss goal.
