The Resting Metabolic Rate Debate DVD

by Jason R. Karp, Ph.D.

Published by Healthy Learning™

Many individuals believe that strength training adds muscle mass, thereby increasing their resting metabolic rate, so they burn more calories all day, which helps them lose weight. While scientific research has documented that metabolic rate is acutely elevated after a workout, it’s not as certain that resting metabolic rate is chronically increased. This DVD reviews the research on the effects of aerobic exercise and strength training on resting metabolic rate and details the scientific truth about this complex issue.

Exercise and Weight Loss: A Look at the Scientific Research DVD

by Jason R. Karp, Ph.D.

Published by Healthy Learning™

While weight loss remains the most important underlying factor for people who exercise at health/fitness clubs and hire personal trainers, most fitness professionals are not familiar with the scientific research on this critical issue, all too often relying on what’s presented by the popular media.

This DVD features a critical review of the scientific research on exercise and weight loss with regard to the most effective weight-loss strategies, including how much exercise is needed and the type and intensity level of exercise that is most appropriate for losing weight.
