Weight training builds muscle. Aerobic activity burns fat. Most authorities agree. Much of the research concurs. I believed it too. There’s just one little problem – I haven’t seen reality coincide with the research. In my experience, aerobic activity is not an effective way to burn fat. In fact, I would say aerobics aren’t good for much of anything.

Your mouth is dropping open. You can’t believe what you’re reading – but you are compelled to read on.

Let me first say that if you engage in a sport where endurance is a factor, some aerobic training will of course be necessary. But if you’re interested in losing weight, becoming more muscular, or achieving a more defined physique, doing aerobics will only make you better at doing aerobics.
