Exercising is a must in your goal for a healthier lifestyle. Cardio is a good way to burn calories, but don’t forget that strength training will help you burn those extra calories and keep fat off your body. At rest, 10 pounds of muscle will burn 50 calories compared to 10 pounds of fat will only burn 20 calories. Strength training helps build muscle mass, which keeps our metabolism up. This is especially important as we age because our metabolism tends to slow down. 
Keep burning calories 24/7 by building your muscle mass with strength training. Your body will be stronger, leaner and healthier.
