Resistance training such as weight training or using body weight exercises like push ups and
squats, helps your body build muscle.
Through resistance training you create small microfiber muscle tears and the body’s
response to adapt is to build more muscle to handle that stress or load in future.
The muscle rebuilding process requires energy; this increases your metabolism. Muscle
requires energy to fuel and thus increases your resting metabolic rate, which means you
burn more calories when you’re sedentary.
You also feel stronger and function better through everyday movement patterns and tasks
like picking up a box off the ground or walking up stairs.
The key point here is – ‘Build more muscle to help burn more fat.’ With the right training
program, you can really pack on muscle and increase your overall strength as well as your
aerobic and anaerobic capacity, mobility, flexibility, agility, speed and power.
