calories your body burns to maintain vital functions 24/7 ( sleeping, at work, exercising etc) so its constantly using what you feed it for fuel and repair. So without saying more muscle the better, hence why i preach weightlifting to everyone. Research shows one training session can raise your calorie burn up to 35+ hrs after you lift and not even counting the energy you use during that exercise. Also the more muscle you have the better the body uses the nutrients you eat and less likely to be stored as fat.....i will explain. Your muscles store calories (energy) in the form of glycogen, when you workout your muscle uses that fuel for training, after you exercise any carbs you eat will replenish that open/empty store and not to your fat cells. Bonus time folks!! if you train hard enough, your body will use for hours afterward your fat for energy to keep all the vital organs going as it wont touch the muscle stored glycogen.....sweet music! The breakdown for metabolism is as follows....60-75% resting rate ( what is burned for your heart, lungs, cells dividing etc) 10% digestive (breaking up your food- carbs to sugar and protein to amino acids) 15-30% any form of exercise. So no more excuses peeps, see you in the weight room!
