Q AND A AT THE RWCC


Q: WHY IS WEIGHT TRAINING SO IMPORTANT WHEN IT COMES TO LOSING WEIGHT?

A: MANY PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THAT WEIGHT TRAINING PLAYS AN ENORMOUS ROLE IN WEIGHT LOSS. SPECIFICALLY IT HELPS YOU BURN BODY FAT. YOUR MUSCLE IS BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE, UNLIKE YOUR FAT, WHICH JUST SITS THERE. THIS MEANS MUSCLE REQUIRES ENERGY IN THE FORM OF CALORIES TO FUNCTION. ADDING A FEW POUNDS OF MUSCLE TO YOUR FRAME, AS WELL AS INCREASING THE CONDITIONING OF YOUR EXISTING MUSCLE TISSUE, WILL ELEVATE YOUR OVERALL METABOLISM. THIS WILL HELP YOU BURN UNWANTED BODY FAT FASTER. IN ADDITION, THE EXTRA MUSCLE WILL HELP YOU MAINTAIN YOUR FAT LOSS.
