Build Muscle Through Strength Training!!!

Ok Gals Cardio is important but banishing yourself to that treadmill for an hour smashing calories away isn't going to be your best game plan.  Unlike Fat, muscle is a metabolically active tissue.  What that means is the more muscle you've got the more calories you are burning at a sedentary state.  YES that means when you are sitting doing nothing!  You can turn your body into a calorie burning machine.  To start out aim for 2 - 3 days of strength training per week.  Remember to keep increasing the amount of weight you are lifting as well as mixing up your routine with different exercises and techniques will keep you getting stronger and keep you motivated.
