You can reach your most of your goals and live a healthy life through everything we discussed in the past few weeks: Move more, eat balanced meals with proper portions, and drink plenty of water. That is the foundation. Now here is how you kick it up a notch!... BUILD LEAN MUSCLES! You will feel stronger, have more energy, and burn more calories. As opposed to traditional cardiovascular methods of training, most forms of resistance exercise (aka. strength training) will increase your overall calorie expenditure, even in the hours post exercise. In one study, researchers found that regular weight training boosts basal metabolic rate by about 15%. This is because muscle is “metabolically active” and burns more calories than other body tissue even when you’re not moving. Adding muscle is just as important as working the muscles you already have on the body. Therefore, this week I collected some older blog posts geared towards this idea. Later this week, I will show you how to adapt these workout specifically to fit YOUR body and YOUR goals. So keep up with the blog and social media.
