Lift Light, Too

While lifting heavy does burn more calories post-workout, performing higher reps burns more calories during the workout, as College of New Jersey researchers reported at a 2007 annual meeting of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Be sure to mix up your training by using lighter weight and higher reps (10–20) during some workouts and heavy weight and low reps (3–7) in others. Another way to get the best of both worlds is to perform four sets of most exercises, doing your first two sets with heavy weight and low reps and the last two with light weight and high reps.
