Which is more important: cardio or strength training?
(This article is published by FamilyCircle, written by Kaitlyn Pirie and Lynya Floyd)
Weight loss is the goal of most of my clients. You will burn more calories while doing cardio but once you stop, your calorie burning stops. Lifting weights will continue its caloric burn effect well after your workout. So the most efficient and effective workout routine is a combination of cardio and strength-training to get the max caloric burning benefit of both. Keep in mind these workouts have other payoffs as well. Cardio will make your heart and lungs stronger. As a result your endurance increases. It reduces stress, depression and anxiety. Strength training increases strength, burns fat, decreases bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol.
