When you are trying to reduce weight, strength exercises are not good option
Either you are trying to reduce weight or not strength exercise should be part of your workouts because most exercise experts believe that cardiovascular exercise and strength training are both valuable for maintaining a healthy weight. Strength training helps maintain muscle mass and decrease body fat percentage because one way of increasing your metabolism is to increase the amount of muscle mass in your body. The way to increase your muscle size is to exercise them, such as with resistance exercises. If you increase your muscle mass and therefore metabolism, and maintain the same dietary intake, this will result in a loss in body weight.
