When it comes to strength and condition, weight lifting is one the best things to improve your bodies composition.

Body-weight exercises can be just as effective and lead to huge improvements towards metabolic health and improved insulin sensitivity.

A study concerning type 2 muscle fibres (built through weight lifting) showed an improvement in whole-body metabolism after weights were lifted and the conclusion showed that an increase in type II muscle fibres can reduce body fat without changes to diet and might be effective in the fight against obesity.

Fitness Rush Tip

Start off slowly and always build up the resistance. Try using a 5 (reps) x 5 (sets) method on your compound exercises to help increase strength and grow some all important muscle.
