Principles of Exercise: How to Get the Best Fitness Results
How balanced exercise and goals are inter-related
Your goals can be weight loss, strength, endurance, power, etc. Apart from the difference in building power (possibly hypertrophy – big muscle) and endurance (usually lean muscle), all other fitness goals are inter-related. Healthy and permanent weight loss must include strength building, for it is with a lean muscle tone that your body will burn energy effectively and retain the firm and attractive shape you desire.
