Personal trainer Julian Ernest shared how to burn calories even when you are resting, according to Express.

What you need to know about training

Although cardio workouts may initially burn more calories, the impact of strength training on your metabolism should not be underestimated.

Cardio workouts, including jogging in place and jumping rope, are effective for weight loss, and strength training can help you lose weight even during rest.

Strength training (also known as resistance or muscle training) can increase your metabolism rate - the rate at which your body burns calories to support daily activities and basic functions. Thus, even when you relax after training, your body continues to burn calories efficiently," the trainer said.

Recent research on resistance training in women showed that their overall basal metabolic rate remained elevated for 48 hours after training.

Strength training helps you lose weight in the long run but also helps build strength, strengthen bones, and improve mood.

Basic strength exercises

The foundation of strength exercises includes deadlifts, Romanian deadlifts, dumbbell bicep curls, squats with a barbell or a grip, and others.
