Tip: Build Muscle – Boost Your Metabolism

Building muscle boosts your metabolism.

Boost Your MetabolismBuilding muscle boosts your metabolism. Every pound of muscle burns 35 to 50 calories where fat burns only 2 calories per pound.

Call to Action:

During strength training, the order in which you work muscles is important. The Mayo Clinic recommended sequence is large before small, multiple-joint before single-joint and higher before lower intensity exercises.

If you are trying to lose weight and you are strength training, know that muscle weighs more than fat; however muscle takes up less space in the body so as you build muscle you will look and feel better even if you don’t see dramatic changes on the scale.

To your wellness,

Lynn
