Weightlifting is effective in building muscle. Lifting a barbell involves muscles in the legs, torso, arms and shoulders. Lifting is an excellent exercise because it involves and strengthens so many muscle groups. In general, using weights, doing resistance exercises, helps build numerous muscles throughout the body. Performing resistance exercises is good for fat reduction for two reasons: First, the exercise itself uses energy, gets you breathing heavily, and so also has good cardiovascular effects. Second, building muscle helps reduce fat. A pound of lean muscle consumes 35-40 extra calories each day without additional exercise, thus raising your metabolism. Add just three pounds of lean muscle and your body now consumes as many additional calories as jogging a mile. Now, you simply cannot spot reduce fat. When you exercise fat is released into the bloodstream by fat stores throughout the body to help supply energy to your muscles. When you stop exercising or consume new calories, fat is deposited in fat cells all over your body. In other words, fat moves around, so spot reducing is not possible. To reduce fat in any particular area, you must reduce fat everywhere. This is why resistance exercises are so effective at fat reduction.
