Everyone wants their workout routine to be as efficient and beneficial as possible. So how do you make your workouts last longer without spending more than 45-60 minutes exercising? You need to create a hot furnace! The way to spike your metabolism (furnace) is through higher intensity strength training. Studies show that your body may not return to rest after a strength training session for up to 5-7 hours! On the flip side, often times following a cardiovascular session your body returns to rest within only one hour!
When you lift weights you are not getting stronger, you are breaking the muscles down. It is during the recovery and repair that you build stronger, leaner muscles.This means your workouts last longer because your furnace stays hotter, longer, due to the muscle repair and recovery that is taking place.
“Challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.”
