Build Muscles to Lose Weight

Did you know that muscle burns more calories than fat? That should be a great reason for you to add some strength training to your workout. By building up your muscle mass, you are raising your metabolism and allowing your body to burn more calories throughout the day, even when you are at rest. Building muscle has the ability to burn calories more efficiently than just a cardio workout alone. For example, circuit training, that includes both cardio and weights, for 30 minutes a few times a week will help you quickly burn calories and lose weight even faster.[1]

Remember, you don’t need a gym to build muscle! Using your own weight in exercises such as crunches, leg squats or pull-ups, will still give you the ability to gain muscle and lose weight.
