Boost Your Metabolism
Resistance training is NOT just for bodybuilders. Resistance training is for anyone who wants to improve their overall health. A proper resistance training program will develop muscular strength, improve muscular flexibility, enhance bone health and bone density, strengthen tendons and ligaments, and develop muscular endurance.
As an added bonus, a resistance training program will also boost your metabolism. It has been well documented that a pound of muscle burns 80 to 100 extra calories per week while a pound of fat only burns 3 to 5 calories per week. This one pound of muscle will burn over 10 fat pounds per year. With all the benefits of resistance training, the only question is why more people aren't doing it!
