“Cardio” is highly over-rated & an old concept that was brought in years ago based off studies done at the time. The studies however have proven to be wrong. Anyone who’s a trainer shld know that cardio is NOT the best way to obtain wt loss goals. MUSCLE MUSCLE MUSCLE is the ONLY way to increase metabolism! In fact all trainers shld b hip to the fact that long duration/ steady state cardio decreases muscle mass therefore decreasing metabolism. Building Muscle through High Intensity Workouts…High Intensity meaning: Brief activity causing a failure of the involved musculature w/in only 1-4 minutes, is the MOST effective & efficient way to wt loss while not including nutrition into this question b/c all in all in boils down to what you are feeding your body.
Here’s a tip to get a lot of peoples panties in a bunch…A reduction of body fat is almost entirely a dietary issue; yet the general population REFUSES to give up the notion of exercising for fat loss.
Trainers are not responsible for wt/fat loss that depends on the client’s discipline to clean eating, but we are able to aid them in increased muscle mass which aids in increased calorie burning while inactive!
