Cardio or Weight training for weight loss??

if you’re looking to lose weight, you might be wondering: Should I focus on doing cardio or should I weight train? The answer, for those of you not interested in hanging around for the “why” part of the answer, is both. What matters most is the way you train, the system you train under, and your lifestyle.These days, most workout programs incorporate both, often during the same workout. Most “cardio” work has an element of resistance training, either in the form of added weight or plyometric movements, while most “weight lifting” work has a cardio element because it’s done in circuits.There are two myths inherent in this age-old question. The first is that weight training will make you bulky. The second is that cardio doesn’t build muscle. Let’s dispel these once and for all, it seems to be a catch 22 because the dilemma is that if you do cardio you won’t gain muscle and if you weight tran then you wont lose weight! personally i find that if you want to see rapid changes and lose weight you’ll need to do both and spread them out in different days.
