Is Weightlifting or Cardio Best for Weight Loss?

Written by:
Is Weightlifting or Cardio Best for Weight Loss?

If you want to know whether cardio or weightlifting is better for weight loss and why, then you want to listen to this episode.

I have a rather long list of things in the fitness space that annoy the shit out of me.

To name a few…

  • Starvation dieting
  • Low-carb mania
  • Most fitness magazines
  • The cult of “clean eating“
  • “Weight loss foods“
  • Supplement shenanigans
  • Celebrity workouts
  • Most weightlifting advice given to women

If you feel the same way, you’ve come to the right place. We were tarred with the same brush.

And in this episode, we’re going to talk all about exercise and weight loss and how to best go about it.

I have good news, too.

You can reach your goals without sacrificing your life to the treadmill.

In fact, you can get as lean as you want without ever doing more than a couple hours of cardio per week.

(You can eat foods you actually like, too.)

If that sounds too good to be true, I understand.

Suspend your disbelief, though, and in ten minutes, you’ll know things most people will never know about not just losing weight but building a body they can be proud of.

Let’s get to it.
