Strength training raises your metabolism HIGHER so you burn calories LONGER. Cardio helps you burn calories FASTER but for shorter spurts. If you want to see results but can't stay in your caloric range for 1st month,this may help.
I am advanced in strength training so I knew what I was doing;hit my caloric range only 8x the 1st month and dropped 10 lbs.just because I added the strength training-which was working out on my Soloflex machine 2x/wk. Also 1x/wk-Yoga-1 hr/Gravity machinew/trainer 30 min/Treadmill --wogging 30 min.
