Did you know you can boost your exercise and training results by adding strength training to your workout routine? While any exercise is better than doing none at all, adding strength training to your routine will burn more calories, long after the workout is complete. Why is that? Muscle tissue burns more calories than fat, even at rest. And for those of you worried about “bulking up too much”, worry not. You control all of that through the workouts and weights you choose to do and lift.
Are you lost in the haze that is your daily schedule after 3pm? Between school lunches, drop offs and pickups, after-school practices and dance lessons, finding 30-60 minutes 3-4 times per week to dedicate to maintaining and improving your physical (and mental) health is a hard-pressed task to complete.
