What’s your workout today? How about picking up some weights? Strength training and building muscles are an important part of a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Many studies have shown that the more muscle mass you have, the higher your resting metabolic rate. This means that your body will burn calories even after you are done working out. Burn more calories while at rest? Sounds like an awesome deal to me!!!
Here’s a great exercise for whole body strength, the thruster squat. Try 2-3 set of 12 reps or do it Tabata style to get really out of breath : 8 sets of 20 sec with 10 sec rest in between each set. Have fun
1. Start by holding weights at shoulder level.
2. Using proper technique, squat down as far as you can.
3. Hold for a moment
4. After coming back to starting position, raise the weights above your head.
