Tell Us What YOU Think!  Cardio vs Strength Training – Which is Better For Fat and Weight Loss?

A recent Duke University study claims that you’ll lose more weight/fat with aerobic training than resistance training. The study, which appeared recently in the Journal of Applied Physiology, found that the groups assigned to aerobic training and aerobic + resistance training lost more weight than those who did just resistance training.

Of course, there are proven health benefits for resistance training, but most research on the effects of strength training on fat mass has been inconclusive.  What do you think?  Have you found aerobic or strength training better for weight/fat loss?  Let us know on our Facebook page!
