You’re probably already doing plenty of cardio, and doing more won’t do your metabolism any favors, but you know what will?
Muscle tissue is more metabolically active (aka, it burns more calories!) than fat, organs or other tissue. Therefore, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn every day. Boom! Your metabolism is boosted! ?
Here are the FAST FACTS for today’s metabolism-boosting workout: Level THREE | Standing + Seated | DUMBBELLS | Burn 200 calories
Included in today’s routine is an important conversation about METABOLISM and AGING:
? Why your metabolism might not be the reason you’re having trouble with your weight
? What you can do to stay active and healthy throughout your life
? How to keep your metabolism operating at peak efficiency
Grab a set of just-challenging-enough DUMBBELLS and a CHAIR, and let’s workout together! Click the video below to follow along with gentle, moderate CARDIO and (mostly) seated STRENGTH work that’s designed to truly enhance your midlife fitness, while boosting your metabolism.
