STRENGTH TRAINING - Every pound of muscle burns roughly six calories per day at rest, That’s about three times as many calories as a pound of fat, which burns roughly two calories per day. After a strength-training session, your metabolism stays elevated through a process called excess post exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) More commonly know as the (After Burn Effect)
As we age, we lose muscle mass, so strength training is essential for maintaining it—and a healthy metabolism.
Research shows that starting as early as age 30, the body begins to slowly lose muscle mass, with women losing up to 15 percent of their total-body muscle per decade by age 50. Apart from declines in strength, that declining muscle mass comes with a declining metabolism, This decline in metabolic rate is actually one driving factor of the weight that women generally tend to put on after we naturally hit our peak muscle levels in our 20s,
However, through a targeted TOTAL BODY STRENGTH TRAINING Program it’s possible to not only prevent muscle loss, but actually increase your muscle mass (and keep your metabolism up) and shift those stubborn pounds throughout your life.
