In this week’s episode of “The Discover Strength Podcast” we continue our multi-part series featuring trainers from all the Discover Strength locations. In this series, which will air over the next few months, we talk about some of the most important things all of our new clients should know. These topics are also a great reminder for clients who’ve trained with Discover Strength for years, and serve as the foundation of the “Why” behind the “How” of what we do.
This week, Colton Haight (Chanhassen) and I discuss one of the most common questions we get from new clients at Discover Strength, “Should I be doing cardio to assist in my weight loss?”.
While the standard answer within the exercise industry is that cardio is vital for weight loss, Colton and I discuss what the science actually has to say on the topic. We also take a deep dive into how improving your body composition through resistance training, can help make you a more efficient calorie burner acutely (short-term), and chronically (long-term).
I encourage you to take notes, and share this episode with all your friends who say cardio is the only way to burn extra calories, they may be in for a surprise.If you or someone you know needs some high quality equipment to take their virtual training to the next level.
