*A pound of fat can store up to 3500 calories, but a pound of muscle burns 75 to 100 calories a day just by being there.
*Most of us start losing up to a half a pound of muscle mass every year after the age of 25. BUT, it’s not gone forever! Weight training can help us regain that lean muscle mass.
*Our muscles do not grow during exercise. The body strengthens the muscles while we rest. The benefits of strength training or resistance training are no longer in question. Research continues to demonstrate that strength training increases both muscle and bone strength and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
