Some people wonder why do strength training if all they want to do is lose weight.

Well, the fact is, the stronger our muscles are (not necessarily bigger), the more calories we burn while performing our cardio parts of our workout. A few pushups and situps here and there make a big difference for overall calorie expenditure.
