How Weightlifting Changes Your Life

Fat loss 

Strength training is highly effective for fat loss. Besides burning calories, various biological activities aid in fat burning.

Calories 

A person weighing 83 kg (178 lbs) can burn 250 calories per 30 minutes of intense weightlifting.

Calorie-burning factors

Several factors determine how many calories you burn per workout. Weight and session length are the first.

Intensity

Training intensity (weight lifted) affects calorie burn. Higher means more work and calories burned.

Movements you make

The best calorie burn and efficiency come from compound movements, which employ many muscles and joints.

Isolation movements 

Isolation movements result in lower calorie burn. You should use them in your workout, but not exclusively.

EPOC 

Increased oxygen consumption and accelerated metabolism. All of this will boost your daily calorie intake without moving.

Reconstructed Body

This can lead to body recomposition, where you may not see the scales move but your body fat is replaced by muscle, which has less volume per kg.

Better sleep

Resistance training can improve sleep. This will boost your energy the next day.

Heart Health

Weightlifting can enhance cardiovascular health and minimize the risk of heart disease by lowering triglycerides, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol levels.

Bone Health

Weightlifting strengthens more than just your muscles. Your bones, tendons, and ligaments strengthen.
