As I have already discussed in previous articles there are a number of ways to increase your metabolic rate, with exercise arguably being the most effective. In this article I discuss a few more reasons why you should consider exercising as part of your metabolism boosting routine.
1) EXERCISE BURNS CALORIES:- Sounds simple but the more exercise you do the greater the number of calories you will burn. By exercising regularly you can force your metabolism to operate more efficiently.
2) MUSCLE BURNS CALORIES:- Muscle requires more calories to maintain than fat. Therefore, increasing your body’s muscle mass will increase the amount of calories your body burns. However, you need to be aware that the effects of this have been exaggerated greatly in the past. Having an increased muscle mass will burn additional calories but not to a significant degree.
3) IMPROVED OVERALL HEALTH:- Exercise has many positive impacts on your body. A mixture of cardiovascular exercise and weight training can really help your body function better. Cardiovascular exercise improves your circulation, strengthens your lungs and gets your heart working. Weight training helps you build strength and power.
4) IT’S FUN:- Some people may not agree with me here. However, if you really think about it there is likely to be some exercise out there which you find fun. There are so many options when you exercise which include playing ball, gardening, running and more. Surely, there is one which you enjoy.
As you can see exercising has many positive effects on your metabolism, your body and your mind. It really is one of the keys to improving your metabolic rate. With all these additional benefits there really is no excuse for neglecting exercise any longer.
