A new study reveals that weight loss may be achieved via strength training. Research published in Obesity Reviews found that resistance training like lifting weights, when combined with a calorie deficit, encourages fat burn and lower body fat percentage. Resistance training, such as lifting weights, might help with weight loss, according to Australian and Brazilian scientists from Edith Cowen University and the University of Caxias do Sul. The researchers examined data from 4184 people involved in 116 studies published on exercise and the prevention of weight gain.

Weight loss of an average of 12 pounds was achieved by combining resistance exercise with reduced caloric intake. Research shows that HIIT and other high-intensity workouts, such as jogging, are not the sole method to lose weight. More individuals, especially those who are obese and want to lose weight, might benefit from exercise if the findings of this study can be used to provide an alternative to aerobic exercises like jogging, which can be taxing on the knees and other joints. Recent research also shows that resistance exercise is the most effective way to grow muscle and to keep muscle while losing weight.

To reduce weight, most individuals focus on reducing their body fat, not their lean mass, such as muscle. Strength and athleticism aren’t the only benefits of muscle tissue.

Calorie deficit

The secret to losing weight is to maintain a calorie deficit. It’s possible that exercise alone won’t help you lose weight if you don’t get enough nutrients from your diet as well. For the purposes of this research, weight loss was defined as occurring when an individual consumes less calories than they expend via physical activity on a daily basis.

Weight reduction and fat burning are both dependent on a calorie deficit, but the strategies for producing a calorie deficit might differ, according to experts. Weight loss strategies include keeping track of what you’re eating, lowering portion sizes, increasing the amount of high-volume meals like vegetables, or adopting a diet that makes it easier to consume less through other ways.

Though exercise alone is seldom sufficient for long-term weight reduction, a calorie deficit may also be achieved by increasing your level of physical activity, from brisk walks to regular gym visits.
