Re­sis­tance train­ing is your se­cret weight-loss weapon, says ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­o­gist John Fel­ton. Why? Whether you lift weights, use re­sis­tance bands or work with your own body weight – think sit-ups and push-ups – you are build­ing lean mus­cle tis­sue, which helps you burn kilo­joules, even when you’re not ex­er­cis­ing. Re­sis­tance ex­er­cise also helps to im­prove your body’s re­spon­sive­ness to in­sulin, which, in turn, en­ables bet­ter blood glu­cose reg­u­la­tion.
