    what do you suggest then?
    Using Google so you dont like such a moron. Rep variation is a fallacy and has NO EFFECT on fat loss, since hypertrophy occurs outside the gym such a notion was retarded to begin with.

    i do enough cardio etc.

    still need to lose a lot of weight, any suggestions on weight lifting that will enhance weight loss via building up muscles?

    im not clued up with weight lifting, so dont shout at me please!

    thanks
    I asked my nutritionist why strength training is often suggested in weight-loss programmes, because I thought you required a calorie surplus to build mass and increase your base metabolism. His response:-

    In answer to your Q weight training can cause an increase in muscle mass if the conditions are right (energy balance is going the right way) as you say. When you are in an energy deficit though, it conserves muscle mass, meaning two things: 1) more metabolically expensive tissue is around (muscle) and also more of the shortfall in energy is being made up by metabolising fat. They may seem similar but difference between those two factors is important to remember.

    There is also a whole group of reasons to do with the endocrine system. Weight training stimulates a certain set of hormonal reactions and also the effects of retaining the muscle mass is connected with a set of hormonal messages going from the body to the brain.

    In short, if a person was looking to loose fat and develop a good physique and they could watch their diet but could only do EITHER weights or cardio I would have them doing weights... it is that effective when teamed with diet.
    I don't entirely understand what he's saying, but I'll trust the advice. FWIW, the program he setup for me has 3 weights sessions and 3 fairly short cardio sessions (20-35 mins) per week.
