Doing This One Thing While Strength Training Burns Twice As Many Calories, Science Says — Eat This Not That – Eat This, Not That

Many people just beginning their fitness journey toward a lean, toned physique make the mistake of focusing solely on cardio and aerobics. Exercises like jogging, walking, and cycling are no doubt a major ingredient while cooking up a leaner look, but failing to add in some weightlifting is like serving a PB&J sandwich without the jelly. It just isn’t going to work!

There was a little wobble of the knees. A steadying smile. Then a beep. And, just like that, Britain had its first ever female Olympic weightlifting medallist – and surely its most powerful, heartwarming and potentially life-changing story of these Games.

Team GB will never say so. But some medals are simply more inspirational than others. And watch…….
