10/2/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 3. October 2012 08:00

If you have a hard time scheduling strength training, because you always seem to be short on time, try to commit to 15-20 minutes 2-3 times per week at home with moderate barbell weights. Try heavier weights with a low # of reps.  You can burn up to 120 calories a day.

Any bout of activities is better than nothing and will cause your muscles to break down and rebuild which requires energy which increases your metabolism (always a good thing!).

120 calories may not seem like much, but most men/women gain weight as they get older because their food intake is higher than they work off by just 100 calories per day!
