Do you want to become a regular arsonist when it comes to burning body fat? According to the latest study on Men’s nutrition, health and weight loss, Japanese researchers found that men who lift weights before doing cardio exercising tend to lose fat and get leaner muscle faster, then men who do cardio first and then lift weight. By lifting weight first, those men burned twice as much fat as those who only pedaled first. The explanation is that resistence training stimulates the release of fat0burning hormones. It’s like pouring kerosene on your inner fire.
