WORKING out with weights or resistance has numerous benefits regarding weight loss.

Not only will you be burning calories in the training session, but the benefits of the workout last long afterwards.

Did you know even moderate resistance training can elevate your metabolism and have you burning calories up to 39 hours after your workout?

Be warned, if you don't train with resistance or weights while trying to lose weight, two things often happen.

First, at least half the weight you lose will be muscle, causing your second problem; the metabolism slowing down.

This often means your progress will eventually grind to a halt, and you may gain all the weight back, and more.

Exercises such as push-ups, lunges and squats are excellent ways of increasing your resistance training as they require no equipment and can be done anywhere.

Lucid Fitness provides effective weight-loss programmes incorporating a variety of strength and cardiovascular techniques to encourage safe and sustainable weight control.
