Cardio and Muscle Building

Simply put, it’s impossible. For those of you that believe you can build muscle through running, biking, etc. it’s impossible, unfortunately. Yes, proper cardiovascular training has its benefits; however, you just cannot build muscle through it. Primarily, any cardiovascular training you perform is aerobic and only benefits your respiratory system. A good blog on aerobic training is at: http://www.gravitytrainingsolutions.com/fit-tips/aerobic-training/

To build muscle tissue, in other words to increase the size and strength of your muscles, you must perform resistance training. No matter what your present physical condition may be, you must add weighted training to your workout regiment. Putting on muscle will greatly help with your fat loss results. Our NJ at home personal training staff claim that one pound of muscle burns 35-50 calories a day; whereas one pound of fat only burns 3-5. Pack on muscle with resistance training and watch that weight drop!
