Peter holds a Bachelors’ Degree In Physiology, with a Minor in Nutrition. He is an NSCA Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Peter believes that resistance training > anything. While there is absolutely a time and place for cardio, resistance training can be modified to get any result you’re looking for. It can increase muscle mass, strength, power, local muscular endurance, bone mineral density, gas exchange rate in the lungs and tissue, and cardiac output. These are just some of the benefits. Decrease in resting heart rate, breathing rate, fasting blood glucose levels, and resting blood pressure are more of those benefits. Increasing muscle mass requires your body to use more calories, hours to days after a session, and the new muscle mass produced requires more calories to maintain every single day. Your metabolism increases, and if you stay in a negative caloric balance, you will be burning fat just to build muscle even while you’re sleeping! Anything else you’d like to know, please ask!
