Why must I exercise with weights when I do regular cardio-vascular exercise?
“I might get injured…..”
“I don’t want to have loads of muscle…..”
“I am not a body builder….”
“Cardio is how I burn calories and lose weight!”
I have heard a number of people make these exact comments with regard to weight training. A lot of people believe that weight training and gaining muscle does not help them lose fat and burn calories.
