This week’s episode of Oxygen TV covers three different strategies that will help you maximize your metabolism. Here at Kiama Boot Camp we are constantly trying to educate our clients on the benefits of maximizing metabolism. In this video we share the three best ways to do it.
1. Strength Training
Builds muscle and higher metabolic rate that will burn more calories post exercise and at rest.
Because muscle is very metabolically active tissue it requires energy to just maintain it. Building muscle will help you achieve a lean physique as demonstrated by this picture:
2. Interval Training
High intensity cardio burns up calories during your session but like strength training, it has the after-burn effect that keeps your metabolism elevated for up to 48 hours afterwards. High intensity cardio also tends to make use of your Type II muscle fibres which keep us athletic, young and youthful.
The quality and timing of your nutrient intake is one of the most important factors for maximizing metabolism. It all starts with breakfast and getting your engine revved up. Then regular 3-4 hour meals or snacks will keep your metabolic engine ticking along. Of course you need to be eating the right type of food with lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats comprising the make up of your meals.
