Isometric Exercises To Improve Metabolic Rate
IMPROVE METABOLIC RATE – Because muscle is very active tissue, muscle loss is accompanied by a reduction in our resting metabolism. Studies by Keyes et al. (1973) and Evens and Rosenberg (1992) showed that the average adult experiences a 2% to 5% reduction in metabolic rate every decade of life. Regular strength training prevents muscle loss thus preventing a decreased metabolic rate.
