How many calories does exercising burn?
Exercising is speeding up the amount of calories you burn every day!
With an effective workout plan you can burn up to 400 calories. Research has found that every pound of muscle in your body burns around 12-15 (some say even up to 70!) calories per day – even when you are resting. Every pound of fat burns only 3-4 calories per day. So when you follow your workout regularly you are doing much more than just burning calories and fat. Even building a little muscle will help you burn more calories every day, so you lose weight 3-4x faster than with diet alone. As little as 10-20 minutes of intensive resistance exercise a day can help to flatten your belly in 14 days. Only 10 minutes of exercise a day switches on the hormones that control your metabolism, helping you to burn fat.
