Weightlifting vs. Cardio: Which is Better for Fat Loss?

Weightlifting vs. Cardio: Which is Better for Fat Loss?

Exercise & Training, Weight Loss
What’s up everybody, I know a lot of you guys only care about weight but hey, remember that losing weight doesn’t make any sense if most of the weight you lose comes from muscle. Tell me, have you ever wondering why spending hours doing cardio on a treadmill or elliptical machine doesn’t help you lose fat? Well, don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to say that cardio is useless for fat loss. In fact, doing enough cardio can help you burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time and improves our heart health effectively. But too much cardio can kill your gains and if weight loss is not your priority and you want to lose fat slowly and steadily, then I highly recommend weightlifting or strength…

If you are wondering which are the best exercises you can do in the gym in order to make gains as fast as possible you are in the right place. I like to look at the human body as a project – a work in progress project. Your body is your master piece and you are the artist who designs it. You also have a tool box full of different exercises, different workout routines – high rep, low rep, high volume, low volume, high intensity, low intensity and so on. The purpose of this article is to see what tools (exercises) we have in that tool box, when and how to use them in order to optimize our progress towards our goals. If you’ve been asking around about that type…

4 common weight training mistakes to avoid

4 common weight training mistakes to avoid

Exercise & Training
There is a reason why you don’t see jacked guys around every corner. In fact, even inside a gym you will most probably see just a handful of guys that look muscular and have a physique that you would want to have. When I was in high school I was in a small group of 5-6 guys that worked out regularly for couple of years, yet neither one of us had a truly muscular, impressive body. Even though we had a ton of fun working out, our training routine was pretty stupid and the results were very poor in most of the cases. Anyways, once you understand it, dieting and training right is not rocket science at all. But people find very creative ways to mess it up each day,…

Workout routines have been, are and will be a hot topic in the fitness community. Everybody wants to know what’s the best beginner workout routine, what’s the best training routine for mass, what’s the best for strength, the best routine for women and so on. There are literally thousands of questions being asked every day around this topic. Justly, there is no question about it; the way you train will have a tremendous impact on how your body will look, therefore it make perfect sense to continuously learn and experiment with different routines. A very common workout routine is the ‘push, pull, legs’ program which I’ve followed when I first started working out, almost a year and a half ago (wow, it’s been that long already). If you’ve been reading…

The ultimate chest workout plan for muscle mass

The ultimate chest workout plan for muscle mass

Exercise & Training, Muscle Building
Chest is one of my favorite muscle groups to train and I think I am not the only one. In fact, have you noticed that everybody seems to hit chest on Monday? It’s just like Monday is the international chest day. That’s why I hit it on Tuesday, because all the machines are taken on Monday, hahaha. Anyways, every guy wants to have a big chest, it looks good and gives you that superhero look and girls like it as well which is pretty cool. That’s why every gym newbie hits chest like crazy and can’t wait to make it grow. But most of the times the results you’re getting are nothing near what you expected – no size, no definition or poor development. If this is you, read on…
