Cardio Is Killing Your Fat Loss.

Cardio , fatloss
What’s the ideal way to lose fat?? ⠀

Definitely cardio right??🤔⠀

❗️WRONG❗️⠀

I get this ALLLLLL the time… “I’m only doing cardio right now because I’m trying to lose weight. Then I’ll build muscle after.”⠀

Most likely all this is doing is slowing your fat loss down!!⠀

Steady state cardio for long periods of time only sends a signal to the body to become more efficient with calories. (Aka slow metabolism down)⠀

A slower metabolism = slower fat loss.⠀

Yes cardio can be good for overall heart health but it is not ideal for fat loss.⠀

So what is??🤔⠀

❗️LIFTING WEIGHTS❗️⠀

Building muscle is the best things you can do if your trying to lose fat.⠀

Having more muscle increasing metabolism. ⠀

Not to mention you’ll be able to hold more body fat and look leaner because of the amount of muscle you have. ⠀

Building more muscle = faster fat loss. Period.⠀

Proper weight training mixed with proper macronutrient manipulation is the key to effortless/“quick” weight loss.⠀

Down the road once you have exhausted all the variables that have to do with weight training and nutrition then you can add in some cardio and give yourself an extra boost to get you to your goal.⠀

But don’t be the person that only does cardio expecting to get to your goal in time. ⠀

Adaptation to cardio happens quick. ⠀

And it’s a lot longer, slower process then if you just focused on lifting weights!
