Building muscle through weight training helps give your metabolism an upward bump. Muscle burns calories at a higher rate than fat. A pound of muscle burns anywhere from 15 to 50 calories per day! Compare this to fat, which burns an average of about 2 calories per day. Even if you consider yourself an active person make sure to incorporate strength training into your fitness routine. Otherwise you run the risk of losing muscle mass.
Increased muscle = more calories burned = increased fat loss = a healthier you!
