If your decision of weight loss is already made, then so far you need to know that the strength training is the one that will help you in that attempt. No matter how abstract this looks to you, it is true, and the same will be confirmed to you by Autumn Calabrese, the creator of 80-Day Obsession and a beach body super trainer.
In order to turn your muscles into lean ones, you must give them more fluid so that they can function. Believe it or not the muscles require more fuel for functioning than the fat does. So if you want to turn your muscles into lean ones, then you will have to insert some exercises with weight lifts into your training and the most important thing is not to be afraid of performing them.
Once you have learned that the weight lifts are something that you must do, the greatest problem that you may face with is the right number of repetitions that you will have to perform. Autumn, the experienced personal trainer recommends shifting back and forth around 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions. The most suitable combination is the one of 2 sets of 15 repetitions, which may be considered to be more like a cardio-strength training. If it is tending to be cardio that means that your heart rate will go up and will stay up. Simultaneously, your muscles will get burn. If you want to build a little bit of lean muscles, then definitely you will need to go with 3 sets of 10 repetitions, and not to be afraid of that attempt.
On the other side, if you tend to turn your body into strong, toned, and sculpted one, Autumn suggests to alternate these two formulas. That is actually the main reason, why she was writing down about this switch of back and forth in her 80-Day Obsession program. The main aim of these movements is to build lean muscles and burn fats simultaneously.
You may come across some suggestions of lifting light weight and making several sets of 20-30 repetitions of this lifting. The aim of this formula is to prevent your body of bulking up. Autumn is against that formula, explaining that the same will not bring you certain benefits, but only body injuries. Additionally, she explains that once you decide to perform any exercise for 30 times, you just leave some space for the fatigue to set in and let our body form to go, which is not what you want to achieve with your body.
