Can You Lose Weight Just Weight Training?

Postby Dell » Tue Mar 04, 2014 7:13 pm

It's possible but unlikely. To use up an important amount of calories(which will help with weight loss) you need to get your heart rate up and keep it up for some time. And weight training just isn't hard or consistent enough work in that way. Weight training is usually for bulking up (gaining muscle), but yes.. you can lose FAT weight.. but gain MUSCLE weight (muscle weighs more than fat). You can lower your body composition via weight training (lower body comp is good). It's hard to explain, but you can lose fat and still gain weight by weight training is what I'm trying to say.
