Does Weight Lifting Help with Weight Loss?

Weight_Training_coupleWeight Lifting and Weight Loss

Many people underestimate the value of resistance training (weight lifting) for weight loss. While people tend to understand that combining exercise with dieting increases weight loss success, they tend to minimize the importance of resistance exercise (aka resistance training or weight training).

While any form of exercise is helpful for weight loss, since it helps burn calories,  resistance exercise (aka resistance training or weight training) is extremely effective in promoting weight loss because you not only burn calories while exercising, but resistance exercise (aka resistance training or weight training) helps develop lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle mass you have the higher your resting metabolic rate. A higher resting metabolic rate results in more energy expenditure every minute of the day. In other words, someone with more lean muscle burns more calories throughout the day, even when sleeping, than someone with less lean muscle.
