IMPROVE GLUCOSE METABOLISM – Hurley (1994) reported a 23 percent increase in glucose uptake after 4 months of strength training. Because poor glucose metabolism is associated with adult onset diabetes, improved glucose metabolism is an important benefit of regular strength exercise. Muscles use glucose from food for energy. The more lean mass you have the more glucose you will burn. On the other hand consuming exactly the same foods without the added active muscle tissue results in the accumulation of more unwanted body FAT!
