Weight lifting for fat loss is not something folks think about when it comes to get in shape.
Take a look at some of Coach Eric's clients below:
They are getting AND maintaining a lean and strong look.
But, here's the thing...
They AREN'T focused on the scale and "losing" weight.
Actually, they are focused on getting stronger and feeling better. These great results are just a side effect.
It makes training MUCH more ENJOYABLE.
- Focus on Powerlifting (Bench, Deadlift, Squat + accessory lifts)
- Eat well, structured healthy meals (no starving) and have the occasional "cheat" meal
- Little to no "cardio"
It may sound too good to be true, but it isn't.
==> Why Powerlifting Burns Fat
Powerlifting burns fat. This seems counter-intuitive. After all, everyone is saying that to lose weight, you need to do cardio.
The reality is, the biggest burner of calories in your life is your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). You can expect to burn between 1600 to 1800 calories a day if you're a man, 300 calories fewer if you're a woman, just from your BMR.
The best way to increase this number? Build muscle. Increasing your body's muscle mass by just 5 pounds will increase your BMR by about 400 to 600 kcal per day.
That's a massive increase. If you take your body fat percentage down and the amount of muscle in your body up, you'll naturally burn fat. It's just what your body will do.
The simple truth to fat loss and weight loss is this: build muscle, then let nature do the rest of the work.
