I'm taking a general health course in college right now and we recently learned that both cardiovascular and strength training are pretty important for weight loss and both play a certain role in the process.

Cardiovascular obviously helps to burn the fat and calories away, as well as spike your metabolism for several hours after exercising helping you body burn calories even if you're inactive.

Strength training helps build your muscles, and an increase in muscle means higher metabolism, which will also increase the amount of calories your body is burning while being inactive.

So put those both together and bam, you have a pretty sweet weight loss plan.

Hope this answers your question!

P.S. Congrats on the weight loss!!!
