😓Sweating doesn't mean more calories burned. Cardio v Weights/Resistance workouts. Myth Buster👉

Just because you are sweating, doesn't necessarily mean you are burning more calories.

😓Weight loss from sweating is temporary, as soon as you drink water, you are refilling the sweat that you lost.

😓Fat loss does not=sweat more.

👉Don't waste money on silly sweat suits, or don't rock up to the gym wearing many layers. However, if you enjoy a good sweat during your workout, rock on.

👉An increase in temperature does not result in an increase in calorie burn. It actually results in the loss of water.

💪So if your working out, you can still be burning plenty of calories by adding one of my 'weights classes to your weekly workout schedule.'. You may not sweat as much as a cardio based class, however, my weights workouts help you Burn More Calories Every Day.

👉Although a weight-training workout doesn’t typically burn as many calories as a cardio workout, it has other important benefits.

💪For example, weight training is more effective than cardio at building muscle, & muscle burns more calories at rest than some other tissues, including fat.

✔Because of this, it is commonly said that building muscle is the key to increasing your resting metabolism — that is, how many calories you burn at rest.

✔Weight training also has other important calorie-burning benefits.

❤Specifically, research has shown that you burn more calories in the hours following a weight training session, compared to a cardio workout..

✔In fact, there are reports of resting metabolism staying elevated for up to 38 hours after weight training, while no such increase has been reported with cardio.

This means that the calorie-burning benefits of weights aren’t limited to when you are exercising. You may keep burning calories for hours or days afterward.
