Worth the weights

Runners, walkers, and cyclists are not hard to come by in Coconut Grove. In such a beautiful area, it’s hard to stay inside to get your daily exercise. However, many of these cardio enthusiasts may be missing a vital part of their healthy routine: weight training. Just because bowling-ball sized biceps aren’t your goal doesn’t mean you should skip the weight room. Here are just a few reasons to incorporate weights into your regular exercises:

You can lose up to 40% more fat

Of course you can lose weight by running marathons, but doing cardio not only burns fat, but also muscle. Although losing muscle is nice to see on the scale, it does not necessarily improve your mirror appeal and can actually let you gain the weight back sooner. Adding weights to your exercise routine will help you retain the muscle and still drop the fat.

You’ll burn more calories

Because your muscles will require extra energy to rebuild themselves after weight-training, you will burn more calories, even when you are parked on your couch. You will also be using more muscle energy during your workout, which again, means more calories burned.

You’ll smile more

Along with exercises like yoga, research has shown that people who lift weights regularly have better overall attitudes and outlooks on life.

You’ll get into shape faster

Circuit training with weights incorporates the heart pumping benefits of cardio and the muscle challenging benefits of weight training. Adding this type of exercise into your routine will help you reach your goals without wasting your time.
