Did you know that every ounce of muscle and fat burns calories during the day?
Here is the good news: Muscle burns 5-15 calories per pound per day than. So what does this mean to you? What it means is that muscle will naturally burn fat.
But building muscle is hard isn’t it?
No not really, you just have to try a little. Here is how.
Train just 2 times per week:
Take a couple times a week to work your muscle groups. It’s easy to sleep that extra 15 minutes, but can you honestly not get out of bed or off the couch for 15 minutes to work your muscles?
Challenge your muscles:
Easy to moderate reps are great for maintaining muscle, but the more muscle you have the more calories your burning per day without even thinking about it. Challenge your muscles by using a higher weight than you usually would, make it so your last rep makes you work for it, but is still doable.
Use compound movements:
These movements challenge several muscle groups at the same time. Push-ups, squats, lunges are all good examples of compound movements.
Change your program:
Your body will get used to the same routine if you do the same thing each week. Challenge your body by changing your workout routine each week.
You can do this, just a little ambition goes a long way. Get up and go do it!!
