Build Muscle Lose Fat with Cardio and Weight Training

Build muscle and lose body fat by combining your exercise routine with both cardio and weight/strength training.

Whilst cardio (treadmill,swimming, cycling) will get your heart rate up and burn calories,  weight/strength training will increase your muscle mass , meaning your metabolism will have increased.  Adding a few pounds of muscle will help you to burn more calories a day.

How weight/strength training works:

If you perform light exercise, like cardio, your metabolism may be elevated for just a few minutes after exercise, but for more intense training like weight/strength training, your metabolism may be elevated for up to 36 hours after your workout.  When you perform intense weight/strength training exercises you are burning additional calories for a much longer period of time, more calories than you would by doing cardio exercises.

"Muscles are like "fat burning furnaces" they burn calories.

Build Muscle and Lose Body Fat:

If you focus only on cardio and skip weight/strength training it could actually become harder for you to lose weight and body fat, you may even gain weight, especially if your cardio exercise is longer than 45 minutes.  If you do cardio for too long, your body consumes muscle for energy.  Excess cardio could decrease your metabolism and could result in weight gain.

An hour at the gym should be split into: 25 minutes cardio, 30 minutes weight/strength training and 5 minutes before and after workout stretching.  Depending on how much time you have a week, you could split the exercises into one day cardio, then the next day weight/strength training.  Also make sure you are eating a healthy nutritious diet, plenty of water, or Herbalife 24 Hydrate and a couple of days rest a week.

By building a combination of both cardio and weight/strength training into your exercise routine, will enable you to gain muscle whilst losing weight and body fat.

The new Herbalife24FIT home workout dvd shows a combination of cardio and weight/strength training and is only available to buy in the USA.

Essential Tools For the Herbalife24FIT Workout Program

Here are the essential tools you'll need to have for working out to the Herbalife24FIT DVD program.

A Towel - the further you get into the program, the more you're going to sweat.

Water - always have a bottle of water handy and take sips as necessary before, during and after your workout.  Consider adding Herbalife 24 Hydrate to your water, as it will help replace the electrolytes you lose when you sweat.

Resistance bands - these are an essential tool for many of the exercises within the Herbalife24FIT program.  Use them whenever directed to do so by your Coaches (Samantha Clayton and Tom Holland).

Light Dumbbells - we recommend keeping 2-5lb weights nearby during Phase 1 and for all floor exercises.  You can use up to 10lb weights (depending on your level of fitness) during Phases 2 and 3 for standing exercises.

Ankle Weights - for added difficulty, advanced athletes may want to wear light 1-5lb ankle weights during floor exercises when instructed.  Don't use ankle weights during any standing exercises or metabolic workouts.

If you don't already own these fitness program tools - they can be purchased at most Sporting Goods Stores.
