Weightlifting Or Running? Research Shows Clear Winner In Reducing Risk Of Heart Disease

Yes, according to 2019 research published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. Researchers followed 12,591 people for more than five years and found those who did strength-training exercises at least once per week reduced their risk of a major cardiovascular event or death up to 70% — and weightlifting workouts didn’t have to be intense to be beneficial. Share on PinterestNew research suggests that strength training is the best exercise for heart health. A survey of 4,000 adults revealed that static activity, such as strength training, had stronger. Both forms of exercise reduced cardiovascular disease risk factors by 30% to 70%, but the link was stronger for strength training.

Those who strength trained were less likely to have a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Risk factors for heart disease include obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and abnormal lipids. Does Strength Training Make Your Heart Stronger Than Cardio? Can pumping iron pump up your heart health? Yes, according to 2019 research published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise.

If your goal is to lose weight, combining both strength and cardio is your best bet. To really fine-tune your routine, start with strength training and finish off with cardio. Doing so will elevate your heart rate so your heart continues to work at that elevated level during your cardio session. Consider your age as you build your own workout.

What is even more awesome about strength training is that you get all the benefits of cardio without all of the risks! If you perform a set of an exercise and only wait 30 seconds before jumping in to the next set, you will get your heart rate up and improve your conditioning. Lifting weights is better for your heart than cardio: study By Shaun Wooller, The Sun. “Both strength training and aerobic activity appeared to be heart healthy, even in small amounts, at. In fact, research suggests that when it comes to improving certain markers of heart health, strength training is just good – if not better – than cardio. [See: The 12 Best Heart-Healthy Diets.].

The Benefits of Strength Training. Strength training includes any type of exercise that helps our muscles become stronger and more powerful. This can be done with weights or elastic bands, but it can also include exercises that make use of your own body weight, such as squats and push-ups. Cardio gets your heart rate up during the session.

It comes back to normal after you cool down. Weight training on the other hand works more muscles. If you are training hard enough your muscles will be sore.

During strength training, significant, sustained increases in heart rate don’t occur, and increases in oxygen delivery to the muscles are not needed, so the heart doesn’t have to become stronger or more efficient.

  • Lost 70lb by doing cardio/running. How did I manage to do that? I made a video explaining how to that and there are more to come. The cardio/running is the KING of sports. Whether is the basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, handball, tennis, football or almost any sports. You name it. Even the pro bodybuilders do cardio. GUYS, do cardio on regular bases, it will improve your health, strength, endurance, condition AND OF COURSE YOU’LL LOSE FAT. Hard work pays off, so invest in yourself!!!

  • Sir good day i have a pwp,it’s ok to pick cycling as ang excercise im in cycling about 6 years i think?that’ my question sir thank you

  • Hello mam,
    My initial weight was 88kgs…i lost 17 kgs in 8 i am 72 kgs..but from past 3 months i am not able to loose weight..pls suggest what kind of exercises to follow..

  • im pretty skinny, so i always assumed my health was perfect, but i recently found out i had a heart rate of 77. its just at the limit for my age (im 12), and now im extremely paranoid im gonna have a heart attack in my sleep. i have anxiety, so it could be related to that, but im still taking my health into consideration. i started doing a handful of 10 minute workouts on youtube everyday to change my health and appearance, although im not so sure its doing anything heart wise. should i continue or am i just wasting my time?

  • I’m 56, haven’t had a thyroid for 21 years and can say that if you find an endurance sport you like, you’ll melt calories and never worry about weight again. I can burn about 800 calories in an hour of cycling and my average workouts range between 1hr20min to over 3 hours. Additionally,, to do and enjoy any endurance sport well you need weight/strength training. Want to try cycling, great. Want to try swimming or running, great. Go big guns and try Triathlons, definitely. It’s a lot of work but the dividends it pays you are huge. There are Tri events for every experience level and once you get the bug you’ll never stop. This doesn’t compete with what she if saying, but actually supports it. Both Cardio and Strength training will help you not only reach your goals but change your life.

  • Short answer: Do it all! I would say, though, that some form of aerobic training is very important on its own for strengthening the heart and cardio-vascular system, which is different from fat loss. If you look at the World’s Strongest Man competitions, it is the guys who are very strong and also well-conditioned who win!

  • Ok so I want to burn as much fat as possible, if i had to pick one out of hypertrophy training (Manageable weight 10/12 reps) and strength training (heavy weight 3/7 reps) which one is best for maximizing fat loss?
    In other words should I do hypertrophy or strength training? HELP

  • A great book to read about the danger of endurance training is “Heart Of A Champion” by Greg Welch a former Hawaiian Ironman Triathlete who suffered severe heart trauma at an early age from his excessive training. This opened my eyes to many of the dangers of things I would do and I have recently seen several people suffer with heart conditions.

  • But i am more sweaty on my cardio sessions of 30 mins rather than my weight training. Then what is actually much better i dont get it.

  • After a very intense session of lifting weights i tried to take a drink from my water bottle and ended up spilling it all because i couldn’t control my arms lol.

  • This is stupid. Yes for most people weightlifting is easier. U should do Both. But in terms of simply what burns more fat, it’s fricking steady state cardio.

  • I lost 25lbs doing weight training and 10 min max of cardio. Gym 5x a week and a non strict diet. I just make sure I’m at a caloric deficit and hit my protein intake. The most chill weight loss experience. Most importantly I’m not starving myself and torturing myself by constantly obsessing over eating the healthiest of foods. Remember it’s a long term commitment so making your weight loss journey pleasurable is extremely important to your success.

  • How do we do strength training at home without any equipments other than 2/3 kg dumb bells if we can’t go to gym? I want to lose around 4-5 kg I am 54.3 inch and 53 kg with a tummy of 32, I want to reduce the fat n not lose my curves what can I do for that? Please help Cori ��

  • Thank you Chloe for making this video! I was always so discouraged to find that I only burned 250-300 cals per workout session and always think that maybe my metabolism is not normal. But seeing you try it out yourself, I can see that I am burning em cals quite well! Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart, because of you I feel motivated to keep my workout schedule up!

  • Hi Cori, thank you for all the videos. It helps a lot. Small question:what is the brand of your sneakers please at 1:26? Thank you

  • Well new research shows epoc doesmt even last more than 5hrs.Both of them work well just note that except you are doing hiit most calories from weight training comes from glycogen stored in muscles

  • Hello. I have a question. Is it okay to fast while weight training to burn fat? If I’m fasting, I know I’ll burn fat but is it okay to lift weights when you’re not eating too much? Hoping for a kind response. I’m Miguel by the way from the Philippines.:)

  • That’s crazy on the arch machine at planet fitness I burned 502 in 32 minutes, I was sweating so hard I didn’t take any breaks lol it was so worth it though I felt amped

  • So how do I get rid of belly fat without harming my muscle gains? Knowing that I already do resistance training and cardio once a week. And if I change my diet and eat less carbs, won’t this harm my muscle growth?

  • Question: What about doing cardio while wearing a weighted vest and holding dumbbells? This is what I do often do with my cardio workouts in order to work harder and increase my strength. 2 fit birds with one stone, if you will.:) Is this effective?

  • I wanted to clear something for people that want to loose weight cardio might seem as the most effective option because of the calories loosing but ITS REALLY IMORTANT TO DO STRENGHT WORKOUT AS WELL because if you only do cardio + you are obviously in a calorie deficit to loose weight you start loosing body mass fat and this is really dangerous because it’s not the same as the body fat percentage, the first one is counting your bones etc. so it’s not a good indicator that is why is so important to do strength workouts to loose weight in a healthy weight and focus more on your measures rather than your weight as an indicator. I hope you guys read this and give it a like so Chloe might do some body strenght (maybe lifting some small weights ) workouts for healthy fat loose

  • Jason, if one would have to pick whether to get less than optimal amount of sleep the night before the workout or the night after, which could be less detrimental to muscle gains? 3 days a week(Monday, Wednesday and Friday) I need to get up very early so I end up getting 6 hours of sleep at the very best. I work out 3 times a week(Madcow’s 5×5), currently on the same days. I could change my training schedule to different days(for example Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) if there is any point in it in terms of muscle gains. Sadly I can’t do anything about my sleeping pattern, at least for the forseeable future.

  • Listen here geezers… I’m 52, fit and strong. My mates are tired and out of shape, even though they do a fair amount of cardio. Get smashing the weights, best form of longevity!

  • I have a heart rate of 90 to 100 everyday and having trouble breathing but i don’t have a cough, im a skinny person but i do play basketball and sometimes i do cycling. Since the quarantine started i can no longer do some excercise. Please help me because im so worried right now (Sorry for my english)

  • Endurance training is not bad, if done in moderation. The thing with HIIT and low intensity exercises is that you can’t do HIIT everyday, while you can certainly do cardio everyday. The nervous system won’t be fried, but the heart still needs time to recover.

  • Ok Jason so is it safe to say Circuit training should be the preferred training style as it covers both cardio and strength training.

  • I had got word how carbs were tied into weight gain and so generally to abstain from carbs, but yet had by no means thought of using them to lose excess weight. The significant idea behind the four cycle fat loss solution is to train your system to reduce fat for energy instead of carbohydrate. It’s built around scientific inquiry into the very high carb diets of the Japanese as well as their impressive long-life expectancy. The findings validate the fact that it’s their high carb-cycling eating habits practice that can help to continue being in good health into old age with a reasonable body mass index (decreased incidence of excess weight).Read even more here

  • Cardio very much also depends on intensity, in a 45min run for me I burn 500+ with my pace and intensity(but also factor in that in a cc and track runner)

  • Your information and knowledge of fitness is great. Who certified you as fitness instructor? Is there a good book you recommend for self read? Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I do appreciate it a lot.

  • your heart rate does not determine how many calories you burn. watches or calorie burn apps are more inaccurate than a baby doing math….not even an iron man competitor burns 200 calories in 30min. why da hell is she so popular?

  • Perfect week program for me is: day 1: 30minutes cardio+30 minutes strenght+20 minutes yoga-streches, all concentrating on legs,; day 2: the same time but concentrating on abs, day 3: the same bur for arms/ back; day 4: 60 -80 minutes pilates or balet; day 5: 60 minutes bodyweight exercices (tabata style); day 6: 60 minutes yoga; day 7 rest. And of course when needed I am changing plan

  • i agree with you BUT dont forget,Human is a moving animal not a lifting animal, it is riddiciulus when you see people with great upper muschles and they cant run. DONT FORGET YOUR LEGS, and i am not talking how your legs look like i am talking about how usefull they are.. So if the only thing that is matter is how you look like ok, but try to think out of the box, what is more important to lift heayvy weights or to Run to have pace, Maybe all of them.

  • Thank you so much for this video. So glad I found your channel. Always such excellent info. Based on this video I’m wondering how long you should do strength training each day or each session? Also, Do you consider HIIT workouts to be strength training? Would love to hear your feedback!

  • I’m not going to lie, when i started my weight lose journey i did a lot cardio, running. every other day i would run a minimum of 3 miles. It helped me burned fat fast, also i would eat less, i would run after work so i would have a small meal before my runs because if i didnt ill feel like throwing up. It was like magic how i lose weight, but i wasnt happy lol. I didnt have muscle and i always loved weight lifting. Now that i have bad knees i dont run as much or even at all, yes ive gained weight but thats muscle. Im still trying to lose the fat, so im doing a calorie deficit with weightlifiting. its a slower process of losing fat, but at least im gaining muscle while slowly burning fat! and im happy!

  • I just have to say I’m so glad I found your channel. I just joined a gym almost 4 months ago and I’ve lost 10 pounds but still have another 35 or so to lose and then I want to gain some lean muscles. I have so many questions and I have been watching some of your videos today and pretty much every question I have is answered on your videos. For example I wanted to know about supplements, Cardio or weights first, how many days should I work out, cut or bulk first etc… you literally have a video on each one of these topics. Thank you so much! ❤️����������

  • If I am fat now and have lots of extra pounds, should I first do cardio
    Burn some fat first and then turn to resistance training

    Or can I directly take on to do resistance training?

  • I’m gonna send this to all my girlfriends… they’re all “I don’t wanna lift weights because I don’t wanna look like a man!!” I try to tell them to lift weights… this video explains it so clearly:) ��

  • Nowadays I’m way more into learning to strength train more during the week. But I do really love that steady pace catabolic running for the simple fact that it does for my mental health what (so far) strength training can’t (to some extent) do alone. I’d love to hear more about the mental health side of all this as a factor to fitness.

  • Very informative per usual. Thank you! Your black leggings with those shiny patches are stunning! Could you please tell me what bramd and style it is?

  • is strenght training without the dumbells just body weight -will still give me the same benefit as with equipment or weights? thank you

  • Hi, love the video, do you recommend Full body workouts or split workout for strength? and how often should you train? Thanks in advance. Keep the content rolling ��

  • I do strength training and it also provides some cardio, especially when doing compound moves. I do low impact cardio a couple of times a week to get in some extra cardio.
    I ran long distance runs for years, I was lean, but little muscle. Although I’m not skinny anymore, I prefer having muscle.

  • Good thorough answer. I’m very biased on this subject because I absolutely love the kettlebell, it’s the only tool I use, everyday is a strength training and cardio day with the kettlebell, it’s that simple.

  • Summer bodies are made in winter. I am making mine, what about you? You can create training and meal plan yourself, or you can save your time and visit NextLevelDiet. You chose

  • Ya exactly…Cardio is the best if you want to burn fat…and once you’ve burned all the fat in your body now you can start doing weight lifting to get muscles and abs e.t.c

  • I am runner and I am incorporating more strength training as I am 53 and I need to stay strong. Is it ok to do a light 5 km on strength days for a warmup?

  • Great video guys. Bone density, fat loss, and overall mobility through strength are some of the greatest benefits of weight training not to mention how much confidence being strong can give you. But you really need to do it with proper form and with gradual increases in weight. Injuries do happen if you don’t know what you’re doing. But programs like Starting Strength are great for beginners at ANY age, even seniors. Check them out. I’m 41 and starting weight training about a year ago. It’s a challenge at first like anything new, but it’s so much fun and feels so good once you get going.

  • I think people are too fixated on weight loss and instead should be looking at body recomposition. After you reduce your fat levels, you hope to actually gain weight from muscle mass.

  • Short answer
    Both do but cardio burns more and should be done often if you are trying to loose weight and weighted with low cardio if you want to build muscle

  • Thank you for this informative video. Can you please make a video on combining the two in effective ways? I hear strength training should not be done everyday. But if it is a combination, is it aerobic one day and strength training another day? Can you provide videos on combination work outs?

  • I started watching your vids because my half cosson sorry was doing your workouts and encutege sorry me to do your workout. I love you your one of my favorite YouTubers

  • Thanks Cori! You are my go to coach for sure. I do both cardio with lite weights. Then heavy weight days only. It works for me and my energy is amazing both mentally and physically. I love what exercise does for the brain too.

  • Hey Chole, love from India �� your videos has inspired me to start exercising daily. I Wanted to loose some weight but i use to get bored to start doing it. But after watching your videos, I started working out daily without skipping a day. And i found drastic result. Tysm������

  • 1. Running on a treadmill is easier than outdoors. Interval training is unsuitable for this test, because the intensity is not maintained over a long period of time. Not sprinting, but running faster than a jogger for 30 minutes without a break.

    2. A watch cannot measure your burned calories. Everyone has a different metabolism and burns calories differently. This watch measures the same for all people.

    3. It depends not only on how many calories are burned, but also which ones. Fat during cardio or carbohydrates during weight training. Weights cannot burn fat. Body fat only burns when oxygen is the primary source of energy and not glycogen when training with weights.

    This test cannot serve as evidence.

  • Can someone please explain this to me, if your training for strength doesn’t that mean high intensity with lower reps but he’s asking to do 15-20 reps

  • Hi corey & everyone. I feel a little out of my depth here but can an amateur like me just pick up and start these exercises. I haven’t exercised for years… 4 kids and teaching maths to teenagers!
    I have always loved to exercise just couldn’t find thd time.

  • Coach, in general is it plausible that cardio is really only better for your heart because of its difficulty level? A huge amount of people dont weight train effectively as compared to cardio.

  • I have always linked word ‘diet’ with starvation, until I discoverd website NextLevelDiet. With their diet plan, I am never hungry and I am still losing weight. Amazing!!!

  • 35% more energy burnt during rest is not much, as one can double the time ot triple time of cadio.Therefore cadio must burn more energy than strengh trainning.

  • both cardio & weight training are important, but the burning effect in cardio stops when you stop exercising (or maybe just a few hours after exercise) meanwhile weight training build your lean muscle which will burn your calorie even when you’re at rest.

  • You are a bad ass. Thank you for all of your amazing information and work out videos. Out of all the fitness videos yours are the most diverse and fun. I actually follow them. Keep doing what your doing ����

  • Something to remember when trying to lose weight is this common expression in the health industry:

    “You can’t exercise your way out of poor nutrition”

  • Hey Chloe, I dont know if you made a gym workout routine program. But I dont know what I should do when I go to the gym. Can you please make a video. Please dont feel pressured:)
    Thank you <3 (like weights and cardio)

  • I always had a question that are weights bad for long term,do they have side effects?
    Btw i love ur workouts ALOT love from india��������

  • I think there is a fourth answer… a little bit of each different from the first which was either one. I like to work out a little strength training in my aerobics and a little aerobics in my strength training. It keeps me from getting bored and has had tremendous effects.. I tried to loose weight for about five years on aerobic activity alone with little to no effect (I felt better, but I did not weigh any less or look any slimmer). Only once I added weightlifting did I start to notice a visible change in body and weight loss. I feel that lifting is the biggest kept secret for weight loss! Ciao from Italy, L

  • Doubt you’ll see this late after you posted but if you wear your watch on the bottom of your wrist it will give you a more accurate reading because your pulse will be stronger there

  • Mixed together will be perfect �� prior to quarantine I only do Cardio, loose weight easily but body not tone up, during quarantine I followed your HIIT and abs session, definitely feel more muscles �� ( but weight build up bit �� but looks slimmer!) for real! Love ��

  • I like to do cardio and then to lower my heart rate do low intensity weight lifting. A mix of the two for 30 minutes makes a great workout

  • As a trainer, I have to say that although you burned more calories during cardio, it’s the STRENGTH TRAINING that continues to burn calories even after you stop exercising. No more calories are burned after you stop cardio! And yes, cardio is good for you, but in the long run, it’s PROPER strength training that will prevent injuries and falling. Focusing on burning calories is just a small part of why one should work out. Being strong and having PROPER body movement patterns is what will add to your quality of life.

  • Sorry, I hear you talking about your heart rate being the reason of the amount of calories burned, please know each person has a target heart rate for weight loss for example I can lose more fat at 130 bpm rather than on 170 or even 200 bpm

  • I have seen great results from lifting weights, and now that I discovered your Hiit programs, I see results too. With weights I felt like my muscle was growing bigger, but with Hiit I felt like I was leaning up. So now I am going to combine your Hiit workouts with weights, I think the results can be amazing!

  • I do all the exercises mentioning in this video, but only because I live a busy life. Endurance training takes up a lot of hours per week. Interval training is much more time efficient. I hope this video is right!

  • Absolutely spot on explanation. Superb.
    However given the lockdown Calisthenics, band work are good options for strength training? alternatives.

  • I have been going to gym for last 2 months for reducing belly fat ( i am not that fat just 80kg and 6 ft tall ) But i wanted a stronger body. I recorded my belly size (40 inches) and weight 2 months back. Now my belly is 39 inches and my weight is still 80 kg which made me worry but i realized that my biceps and chest grew a little bigger which was really a satisfactory thing for me. But still my belly is big.
    Exercise i have done in last 2 months are
    1 bench press (15kg)
    2 basic stretching
    3 Pec Dec (15 to 20 kg)
    4 dumbel (5 to 7.5 kg) for bicep
    5 dumbel press (5to 7.5 kg) inclined and flat
    6 fly same weight as above inclined and flat.
    7 wings or lads 15 to 25 kg
    For last 1 month i have been doing abs workout also. Plank, abs machine etc.

  • This is gonna sound like a smartass type comment, but that’s not my intention. With replacing all liquid intake to water, can I still have my cereal with milk or..?

  • in my personal experience weights all the way. Weightlifting helped with fat loss and improved my physique so much and doing HIIT for years didn’t do that. a HIIT session may burn more calories during the actual session but then the fat loss stops but when you build muscle thru weights your muscles continue the fat burn for literally hours afterward. Also, in all honesty chloe ting has incredible muscle mass (and that’s what allows her to eat so much which is AWESOME) as you can see from dexa scans she has shown on her channel. Because people are always asking for at home workouts, that’s what she publishes a lot of, but it’s not really at all what has given her her physique. if you watch natacha ocean’s video ” 1 hr calorie blast challenge” you’ll see she really goes into the science of it too

  • I normally run, play tennis and do weight-training but I can’t play tennis or go to one of my gyms because everything is closed. So I am mainly running outside, doing some yoga at home and doing a little bit of weights with a barbell in the basement. The weight plates are very light compared to the gym though. If we’re locked in much longer, then I’ll get a proper barbell setup. In the meantime, I think that it’s important to get cardio up there if you’re an older person. My metric right now is VO2Max and it’s hard to optimize right now.

    I need a bigger house for more gym equipment.

  • Anthony Joshua, reigning World boxing champion I dont understand people that want to lose weight, go the the gym and do strenght training. So, there is simple answer for weight loss, that shows on the scale is better to do cardio. Run for an hour you’ll burn more calories then one hour strenght training. Simple as that. Body composition thats another question. Problem is that with cardio you don’t need a personal trainer, or fancy gym equipmen, but oh wait…

  • I got high cholesterol, sometimes I have a pain on chest area. I think affected my nerve system which is why my body sometimes aching. I used to be active and doing weight training. But then, I stop and start eating junk food almost everyday. Does this exercise can help make my heart better

  • Hi Kori, I have been following your videos and training. Thank you.
    In the last 80days, I have gone down by 35lbs. Started at 227lbs and now 192lbs. I am male, 38 and 5’9″.
    I am doing cardio (high speed walk ) 3 days a week and doing circuit training for 30mins(35lb plate work out) for 6days a week.
    How I do I know that I don’t lose much muscle but only fat.
    Overall I look slimmer than before but I don’t look tight or muscular.

  • I do both run 4-6 miles three times week, lift and core, Pilates yoga on non running days. Running is best for wt control. Lifting and core for physique.

  • For me all are important: cardio (martial arts, bike, swimmking, classic cardio HIIT or tabata style), strenght with weights, pilates, yoga, ballet and of course walking

  • This video is crap. Absolute crap. Weights does not burn calories like what this describes. Cardio does burn more calories than weights. Weights is for building muscle. Cardio is for heart strength and fat burn. There are no in between with this. This whole video is garbage. It’s fake bs like this is what confuses people. Thumbs down as this video is a lie. Following these guide lines will keep you fat.

  • I have tried cardio, calorie reduction, and circuit training. Circuit training was best. More efficient and you look amazing afterwards.

  • Weights do I’m certified I know. The reason weights burn more calories is because the more muscle you have, the more you burn naturally because the more muscle the higher metabolism. Cardio is just good for your heart but not the best for fat loss. People often confuse fat loss and weight loss. Cardio makes you flat and weight makes you toned and it accentuates curves

  • This always confuses me cause weight loss is losing weight, but if you eat less food with a higher amount of protein and do weights even if you still do cardio or fiit wouldn’t you still gain weight from muscle?

  • thank you so very much for this video I’ve been doing very well with the combination of cardio and strength training and the simply fit board I’ve almost lost 8 pounds in less than 2 months

  • This really confused me rather than clarifying what is best. Why is doing both a copout? I walk or do the elliptical and do strength training in every workout.

  • Ma’am I want to loose 25 kgs I am daily walking 4 km and running 2km everyday and having a good diet! Can I loose that much weight by cardio?

  • When someone asks me “How to get a six pack?”, I always recommend website Next Level Diet because you get personalized DIET plan, TRAINING plan, FITNESS tips, and HEALTHY recipes. It’s everything you need to get six pack in one month!

  • Its strange it took them that long to work out weight training was just as good. My thoughts were that if i did a one hour workout my heart rate gets higher and is consistently for the hour what one would call cardio if doing typical cardio exercise.

  • Your videos, your web site, your social pages…everything you offer is a treasure!!!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge…you are a great coach ❣️❣️❣️

  • This works, like if you hate cardio hit the weights I lost more weight in a quicker amount of time doing weights, another tip I can give you is to do low weights and more reps rather than heavy weights and low reps

  • my cardio is running to the kitchen repeatedly as I multitask cooking with work. My strength training is carrying that damn pot back to my desk

  • Don’t go lifting heavy
    Lifting lighter weights but more reps will give you a lot more tone and muscle
    Lifting heavy and doing less reps will just gain muscle not losing the weight on the arms
    Also start to do more push ups they are great they stimulate more muscles on your body then any other exercise
    It’s a good starter and warm up in the gym

  • If strength is so important, why are the best champions in boxing and MMA reliant upon endurance and cardio? I’m asking a serious question based upon easily observed statistics. You can have strong legs and arms, but if you get winded from a lack of oxygen due to poor lung capacity…you are TOAST.

  • Question: If I do 15-20 reps and give it my all, how long should I rest before my next set? And is the goal to do 15-20 reps again in the second set? What if I am too tired, what would you suggest I do?

  • Redefining strength’s video no: 273 Total hours of content 26:36:7….26 hours:36 mins:7 secs.. Thank for sharing valuable information.

  • Bruh. I want all the big youtube fitness channels to come together and discuss all the fat burning stuff, how excersises should be done, which is suitable for fat burning and muscle building and upload a common video without contradicting each other ������. Im done

  • I’m never sure what to put in my diary: is it cardio or strength I just did? It’s funny because a program will be listed as ‘strength’ but the trainer is doing as many reps possible that it seems we’re just jumping in place lol. I’m one of those people that doesn’t like more than 10 minutes of cardio. I focus on it as a warm up. If I do a program with the intent of both for 30 min straight, I burn out fast…and I’m hungry. So what has me looking forward to a workout is 25 min of yoga & specific joint mobility moves, 10 min of low impact cardio for warm up, 15-20 strength either bodyweight or dumbbells.
    Those dumbbells flew off the shelves at stores so I might get creative and fill 2 empty milk jugs with water.

  • Since when ‘cardio’ = low intensity hours long grind that will eat your muscle mass???

    The retarded weightlifting gym mafia is desperate to push their psychopathy on 99% of the population…

  • Imagine how good the numbers on cardio health would be if it weren’t for the bodybuilders skewing the results by having heart attacks in their 30s.

  • Here is something very simple I did (it works for me). Starting 10th Nov 18 (32 days ago), I did following;

    1) Stopped all carbs and everything “white” (sugar, salt, rice etc).
    2) Reduced to two meals a day, with one meal only fruits.
    3) Got back to running. Ran total 216 km in these 32 days (burnt 15,000 KCal appx).
    4) Regulated my diet heavily. I watch everything I eat (trust me, its not difficult).
    5) My caloric requirement is 2,500 KCal / day.
    6) I consume on average 1,500 KCal / day. The shortfall hence is 1,000 KCal per day.
    7) I managed deficit of appx 30,000 KCal (total). This equals to appx 4 kgs.
    8) I only engage in Body Weight exercises (till now). My body fat % came down to 24% from 27% (in just one month). I plan to reduce further 6 kgs in next 2 months.

    I feel much better, am always full of energy and am more active. I am going to stick to this plan for next 6 months to get full results.

    Don’t listen to any fancy advises; what works for others might not work for you. Do what you are comfortable with and what you enjoy. One thing is certain, at the end of everything, Calorie consumed should be < Calorie Burnt. That's the only way to reduce weight (plus exercise to gain muscles and strength). All the best.

  • I am all set with Cardio. Too many injuries, especially from running. I lift 6 times a week (upper, lower… abs at the end of every workout). I try to take walks when I can.

  • I think it’s best to do a mix of both. Although I know so many guys who only do weights and avoid cardio, and women who just do cardio….

  • I LOVE YOU CHLOE AND YOUR WORKOUTS i was doing one of your intense ab workouts after my 2 week shred because online class just started so i need to workout my abs to maintain the muscles i have but then huhu i didnt expect that it gets even better than my after picture of the 2 weeks shred and it was really working for me even if its just for 10 mins. and its TOTALLY INTENSE LIKE MY ABS WE’RE REALLY BURNING
    thanks to you, your videos helped a lot to have my body goals specifically the 11 definition look (working for that) and I would never stop working out promises

  • Cassidy Campell have given me a life lesson in making me hate Steroid bodybuilders

    Every time I see Jason Blaha or any other steroid guy, I really disrespect

  • One is not better than the other. They’re equally important. However, gym rats who like to lift weights are more vocal about how their routine is superior when it’s all about balance. It’s OK. I get it. You have to get views and suscribers instead of telling the truth.

  • What do you usually do at the gym? I’m a naturally skinny person but i have a fat belly and no butt ������ can you help me out please. I’m already following your hourglass workout challenge

  • When I joined the gym almost 2 years ago, my how time flies. I started with classes yoga, TRX. I kept being late to classes due to my schedule. So I settled on the stationary bike for a while. Then I started using some of the machines. I saw little progress in weight loss and body definition. That’s when your channel came across my recommends. You have much variety in you exercise uploads. I switched up to isometrics, then dumbbells, and lat pull downs etc. I walk to the gym and back,, cardio. I lost almost 15 pounds. I have kept that off for about a year. I also have definition in areas that are visible to me and others. The visible progress also contributes to my continuity.

    This is the routine that works best for me. Thanks Corie.

  • There’s a reason why basketball and football players are naturally muscular. The more you run, the skinnier you get, the more you lift and use strength, the bigger you get. Combine both, and it becomes very easy to lose fat, build muscle, get stronger and look better. Simple. But priortize weight/strength training over cardio. About 70:30 ratio

  • I think you should mix up your routine. I(try to if I’m not too sore) do high intensity interval training 3 days a week(usually Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), and I run on Tuesdays and Thursday’s to build up my stamina. But, my legs are really sore, so I try not to overdo it.

  • I don’t like this video much when it comes to getting stronger and losing weight. If you want to get stronger, you should be doing 1-5 reps of heavy weight, if you want hypertrophy you should be doing 6-12 reps, and for Endurance you should be doing 13-20 reps. Also, for the best results you don’t want to rush through the workout. TUT or Time Under Tension is the best way to gain strength. You want the most effective workouts? Slow down. Complete the rep, hold it, and then continue that same way. Lifting weights isn’t supposed to be a rapid thing. Doing it rapidly may hurt you. Slow down and get the most out of your workouts

  • As I mention in the video there is a training spectrum with endurance cardio on one side and 1RM strength training on the other. But in between that are a variety of workout designs that can be both cardio AND strength training! If you’re looking for a metabolic strength workout to try, check out this Rep Capped Circuit. It’s one of my favorites!:

  • Hello, thank you. Is a burpee a good sub for those of us who csnt jump rope? I do enjoy your I’m here to get it done videos and great explanations for everything you share.

  • 41 here and returned to running last year after 12 years off but lifted weights and hiked all those years. I’m finding 18 miles per week is my limit for feeling optimal health; and no more than 45 minutes per run. In my 20s I could run 50 fast miles per week and still feel my health was optimal. Exceeding these limits somehow makes me feel something is just slightly off with my body. It weakens my immune system and gives me nightmares. Ran a 5K in 21:30 and felt like I was recovering from a marathon the next day. I used to run 10 millers at that pace almost daily and felt stronger the next day. Also I don’t react to stress well after a longer run even if I’m in a good mood from the endorphin boost. I’m perfect for blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, and my resting heart rate is low 40s though. Same weight with lower body fat and stronger muscles now. But damn. Getting old sucks.

  • I was about 94 kilograms I started a low calories diet and no cardio, i started lifting at home with only chest and biceps training day by day I lost 17 kilograms in 50 days but then I stopped losing weight right when my abs started to show and now after over 100 days of the same training a d dait I only added muscles with no fat lose
    Bottom line is you get to a point where cardio is necessary to burn fat

  • Philosophy….
    STRENGTH training, for me sets up successful CARDIO.
    It more about getting and maintaining “lean”…
    not about getting or being “skinny”.

    Oh…23 years ago lost over 100lbs. and been around the same level of health, which means every year a smaller waistline, being a little lighter on the scales, and maintained roughly same or added more muscle mass (former college athlete)…year in and year out.

    Doing something is the most important and having a clear destination
    will help you navigate through inexhaustible sea of information to find best combinations that’ll work for you.

    This channel does help in “Defining” your own path.

  • All my gyms are closed due to Covid 19, the only thing I have is a 16 pound sledgehammer and two 15 pound dumbbells, but that’s all I need, that and calisthenics ����

  • I think it’s best to do some low intensity steady state cardio several times a week, especially outdoors in the fresh air (i.e. brisk walk) alongside resistance training. There are many benefits to this, especially for people doing high intensity exercise such as weight training. The low intensity exercise helps recovery by promoting blood flow, easing stiffness in joints, and also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to balance out the sympathetic lifestyle of high intensity exercise and any other stressors in life.

  • I do cardio, but I love strength training. I’m doing some strength training at home, but waiting for my gym to reopen from this quarantine.

  • It took a Ph. D to conclude that HIIT is redundant and unnecessary if you’re already doing serious weight training? Trying hard not to be sad that that’s not just common sense in 2018 ��

  • i used to do only cardio and didn’t get any results. I swtched to weights and lost over 30lbs in 6 wks. weight training is also a lot funner i tend to keep t weight training longer than cardio

  • Hello Sirs, my mom has disc bulge at L4 L5, her pain from the buttocks and thighs has disappeared, no pain at the back but her foot pain isn’t going away. Also pushups isn’t centralizing the pain. Can you please help us by elaborating and making a video on this? Also is it a bad or a good sign?

  • From my understanding, if you do cardio and weight lifting together, it is counter productive. Basically, cardio=mass loss while weight lifting = mass gain.

    So my problem is, I am trying to grow my glutes and have been working out with weights for like the last 3 months and I have seen some results. But I know cardio is good for your heart and overall health and although I am not fat, I would like to lose maybe 2 or 3 kilos to achieve a more slender & fit look.

    How should I implement my cardio? Should I leave 48h in between my weight lifting and cardio workouts? I’ve also heard HIIT has less of an impact on your mass gain compared to steady cardio.

    I would love any advice from anyone knowledgeable on this subject

  • Since I started doing weights I lost a lot of fat, got more defined, toned. I like cardio but with a healthy eating for me the weights are enough. I dont like to be thin(my preference)…

  • Kind of a ridiculous claim tbh, but well, you gave a great study, which actually leads into even MORE studies when I scrolled down after reading lol. cardio will always be better for the heart, BUT well the heart definitely DOES get worked the hell out of from weight training, especially when you do ridiculously high volume…

    Did me 9 sets of triples yestrday on squats with only 60 seconds in between like the Candito 6 week program tells me to do, and MY GOD, i was drenched in sweat and felt like i ran a fucking marathon.

  • I weight train to improve my kayaking but also to build a stronger core with some stretching added. I guess people strictly weight train to get bigger for some reason, maybe some day I’ll understand
