Does cardio burn the most fat?

15 January, 2019

Losing fat comes down to burning more calories than you consume in a day. Rather than just looking at how much fat you burn during an exercise session you need to be aware of what is happening throughout the day. Along with being mindful of the food/drink you consume you must also look at ways to increase your Daily Metabolic Rate (the amount of calories you burn in one day).

There are many benefits to cardio vascular training and it is a great calorie burner.
Jogging for 30 minutes will burn you around 300 calories (http://www.health.harvard.edu/diet-and-weight-loss/calories-burned-in-30-minutes- of-leisure-and-routine-activities )which is a third higher than resistance training for the same period. However don’t be fooled by the calories burnt during your workout. We must also look at the calories burnt post workout. After a resistance workout your body needs to repair the damaged muscle tissue through protein synthesis and this leads to an increase in your calorie expenditure for a number of hours after your workout.
In summary, what you eat is one of the most important things when it comes to burning fat. Whilst aerobic (cardio) training helps, combining it with weight training will yield the best results – not just for calorie burn but for all the health benefits of exercise.
