Why a Little Resistance Training Gets Better Results Than a Lot of Conventional Exercise

Why does heavy resistance training get better results than riding a bike? This video breaks it down through science.



The following is a guest post by Jonathan Bailor ofThe Smarter Science of Slim:

Why we choose to ride a bike to burn body fat instead of drawing pictures of bikes for the same purpose? After all, both activities exercise muscles. We choose to ride a bike because doing so exercises more muscle (the large leg muscles) than drawing bikes (the small hand muscles). The more muscle exercised, the better our results. Traditional exercise has that much going for it. However, we can do a lot better.

Just as we get better results in less time by working more muscles within our body, we get even better results in even less time by concentrating our efforts on exercising more of the individual fibers that make up our muscles. As you will discover in this this video, the only way to activate all of our muscle fibers is to do heavy resistance training.
