Using Your Weights for Weight Loss: The Fast Track to a Slimmer, Stronger, Firmer Body

Overview

So you want to lose weight, shape up, and shed body fat? Then you need to be strong. I'm not talking about being strong enough to resist chocolate cake or a second portion of pizza (although that inevitably helps!) — but about physical strength, achieved by training with weights.

When we set our sights on weight loss, most of us turn to the kind of activities that get the heart pumping, like running, swimming, dance, or aerobics classes. And ...

Overview

So you want to lose weight, shape up, and shed body fat? Then you need to be strong. I'm not talking about being strong enough to resist chocolate cake or a second portion of pizza (although that inevitably helps!) — but about physical strength, achieved by training with weights.

When we set our sights on weight loss, most of us turn to the kind of activities that get the heart pumping, like running, swimming, dance, or aerobics classes. And while there is no doubt that cardiovascular activity is an important part of the equation, resistance or strength training is the key to maximizing daily energy expenditure and fat loss — and really streamlining your body shape.

There are a lot of misconceptions about strength training out there, but rest assured that you won't end up with big, bulging muscles by strength training, nor will you lose your aerobic fitness. What you will end up with is a stronger, firmer, and slimmer body. You don't even need to go to a gym or pick up a dumbbell — it's perfectly possible to train with alternative, or even no, equipment.

This book will show you how to incorporate strength training into your fitness regime in a safe, fun, and effective way. It will also give you the information you need to make smart eating choices so that you can lose body fat without starving yourself or feeling deprived, and keep it off. You won't believe what a difference strength training will make to your weight-loss efforts, your body shape, and size.
