In men and women, resistance training (lifting weights) will build muscles....More in men than women. Stronger muscles tend to burn more calories that weaker muscles even when you are not using them...That helps reduce fat. Lifting with proper form to the point of momentary failure seems to be the best way to get the muscles to respond.
