A Leg Up on Watching Your Weight – A new study found lower-body moves burn more calories
Here’s what arrived in my inbox today from Men’s Health. Interesting. Maybe 2 lower body workouts a week then?
To take inches off your waist, work the muscles below your belt. In a new Syracuse University study, people burned more calories the day after they did lower-body resistance training than the day after they worked their upper body. “Leg muscles—like your quads and glutes—generally have more mass than the muscles in your chest and arms,” says study author Kyle Hackney Ph. D. “Work more muscle, and your body uses more energy to repair and upgrade it later.”
