8. It’s Not Just That You Exercise
You know that you’ve got to get to the gym to help burn off those extra calories. What you might not realize, however, is that what you do when you get there matters more than you think. Instead of wandering about the gym at random, using whatever machine catches your attention, plan a focused exercise routine that will help develop the results you want. Don’t just focus on cardio, either! While any chance to get moving is great, building muscle will help you burn more fat long-term. Muscle requires more calories to sustain than fat, kicking up your metabolism and making you healthier over time. Not only that, muscle creates a leaner, firmer appearance that you’ll love. Try some gentle weight lifting or body weight exercises to get started building muscle and developing the body you’ve always wanted.
