5 Ways to Boost Metabolism

Boosting your metabolism by training hard in the gym will help you get leaner,stronger and more muscular.

  1. FOCUS ON PROTEIN - Protein you know, the stuff your muscles are made out of is whats called called thermic food,meaning that the body has to use a lot of energy to break it down and put it to use. Therefore, consuming a diet rich in protein can naturally raise your metabolism because your body has to work overtime to break it down. A high protein diet wont cost you much more in calories because protein comes in at 4 calories at per gram and will provide plenty of more amino acids to build and repair muscle.

  2. LIFT TO FAILURE - New research shows that training to failure with lighter weight and higher reps has about the same effect on growing muscle as heavy weight protocols with fewer reps, so long as subjects trained to failure. Whatever route you choose to go, you are golden because muscle is a metabolically active tissue that will help your body burn more calories at rest throughout the day.

  3. INTERVALS - High intensity interval training is the best way to scorch body fat in a hurry. But you are more likely to burn more calories during a steady state session. So does HIIT burns a fair amount of calories during exercise, the spike in metabolism that it creates provides a steady, sustained dose of fat burning over the next 24-48 hours, perfect for those seeking long term change.

  4. DRINK UP - Hydration is key for keeping pretty much every bodily function including muscle building and fat burning,running smoothly, but have a few cups of cold water at key times can help you get leaner in another way. One study published in the journal of clinical endocrinology and metabolism found that drinking a little bit more than 2 cups of cold water on a empty stomach boosted metabolism by 30%. Even better drinking 16 ounces of water before meals can help you reduce overall calorie consumption.

  5. SUPPLEMENT WITH GREEN TEA - Chief among the many reasons is that green tea helps prevent the breakdown of norepinephrine, a hormone that jacks up your metabolism. In other words,the more norepinephrine you have floating around in your bloodstream,the higher your resting metabolsim, Taking 500 milligrams of green tea extract twice daily can go along way toward keeping your metabolism firing on all cylinders.
