According to scientific research, 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise, such as running, jogging or cycling, will net you somewhere between 250 to 365 calories, depending on your weight and level of intensity. Whereas, weight training exercise for a similar amount of time will instead only yield about 130 to 220 calories burnt in a single session.
Weight training might not burn as many calories, but it does help you build and develop muscle mass. Muscle increases your resting metabolism and burns more calories during periods of rest than fat. So, weight training might not make you see results quite as quickly as cardio but it’s more of a long term investment of sorts by making it easier for your body to burn more calories over time.
But what’s stopping you from doing both? In fact, it’s been suggested that relying on multiple types of exercising might be the best course of action to make the most of your weight loss journey.
Alternating between periods of extremely high intensity exercise followed by periods of lowered intensity as a chance for the body to recover. A high intensity interval workout typically runs somewhere between 10 to 30 minutes per session, and can be applied to a wide variety of different exercise activities such as biking, jumping rope, or sprinting, as just a few examples. In addition to yielding similar weight loss results compared to those yielded by traditional cardio exercises, high intensity interval training may also burn more calories by comparison as well. According to one study, HIIT exercise was found to burn somewhere between 25 to 30 percent more calories compared to other forms of exercise.
