exercise and sex

CPT-2By Stacey Penney, MS, NASM-CPT, CES, PES, FNS

For some of the top New Year’s resolutions, the benefit of incorporating exercise to achieving the goals seems obvious. But for others, the connections are just now coming to light.

Here are some of the top New Year’s resolutions, from losing weight to falling in love, and how exercise helps (1,2).

Losing weight

Exercise can help with weight loss efforts and maintenance (3,4). Aerobic activities are powerhouses when it comes to burning some of those excess calories, and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can keep the calories torching long after a session is complete. Resistance training is also key to building and maintaining your metabolically active lean body mass (4). The stabilization endurance training phase of the NASM Optimum Performance Training ™ (OPT ™) model is a great place to start with clients who have weight loss goals. This phase forces the body to recruit more muscles to stabilize it (in addition to the higher repetitions and circuit design), and in doing so, more calories are potentially burned (5).

But you can’t out exercise a bad diet.
