Did you know that if you sat on the couch for a full day, you’d still be burning energy (some fat as well)?
In order for us to survive, our bodies have a minimal energy requirement. We need energy for our brains to function, for our nervous system to fire, for our digestion to work and to maintain our muscle mass.
Even our fat tissue burns energy… it burns very little but it does burn some.
The tissues and organs that burn that require the most energy (calorie burn) are our brains, nervous system and muscles.
Since we can increase our brain tissue let’s focus on the muscles.
If you increase your muscle tissue, even by a marginal amount, you’ll actual increase the amount of calories you burn while you’re at rest.
That means that you will be able to burn more fat while you’re sleeping.
Pretty cool right?
It’s important to leverage this law and have your workouts focus on Strength Training and increase your lean muscle mass.
