In this video I discuss my thoughts on the current perception on cardio and fat loss and the benefits of weight training to improve our overall calorie expenditure.
Resting Metabolism is responsible for 60%-75% of our daily calorie expenditure. (Amer. J. of Clinical Nutrition, 2006)
Resting muscle burns 5-6 calories per pound per day.
Trained muscle burnes 9 calories per pound per day. (J. of Obesity, 2011)
More muscle + more trained muscle = more calories burned = potentially more fat loss.
