Pump up the iron?

How SMART have you been over the last few weeks? Here is a great tip to help you burn calories longer. Are you ready?? Lift weights! That’s right, lifting weights helps your body continue burning fat after your done weight training! Don’t get me wrong, you still need that cardio in your routine BUT muscle keeps burning calories even when you are not working out. If you replace 10 pounds of fat with 10 pounds of lean muscle, you will burn an extra 25 to 50 calories a day, even when you don’t break a sweat! It seems like no brainer, get out there and pump iron!!


If you are already lifting weights share your favorite exercise!
