Yes but dont push it

Weight_training
Weight training is great to improve our muscle tone and take the pressure off our joints. just start with low weight and increase slowly. The folks who run into trouble are those trying to impress their friends by lifting too much, leading to torn uscles and tendons.

Does weight training help lose weight?

Yes

Weight_training
Muscle continues to burn fat even at rest so some weight training will lead to weight loss. However, you may have a slight gain initially due to increased muscle mass.

Dr. Chad Zooker answered:

Can weight training help slim your thighs?

Yes, but...

Weight_training
Weight training (serious weights, not 5 lb dumbell curls) will increase your muscle mass and improve your metabolism while not working out. But lifting is only part of the equation. If you do not see the changes you are after with weight training alone, then take an hones assessment of your diet and make the necessary changes.

Does weight training increase bone density?

Absolutely

Bone
Evidence shows that exercise help build and maintain bone density at any age. Studies have seen bone density increase by doing regular resistance exercises such as lifting weights for 20mi, 2-3 times a week. This type of weight-bearing exercise appears to stimulate bone formation via bone stimulation through muscle contraction.

How can weight training release fatty acids?

Storage.

Weight_training
If you work out long enough (more than 20 minutes), you deplete glycogen stores in muscle and start using FFA's as your bodies principal energy source. You convert more easily if on a low carb diet, since you burn FFA's all the time. This is one reason that exercise should last at least as long as 45 minutes per session!

Can i do cardio and weight training together?

For sure

Weight_training
It is best for your health and fitness to do a combination of cardio and weights. However, I usually recommend doing cardio first to help you warm up your muscles. This can reduce injuries during weight training.
