It only includes the calories you burn at rest. Increases your Resting Metabolic Rate by helping you build lean muscle. Muscle is the most metabolic tissue in the body. The more muscle you have the higher your Resting Metabolic Rate and the more calories you are going to burn while you are at rest. Why is your RMR important? It accounts for 60-75% of your daily calorie burning. More muscle equals a faster metabolism and less body fat. 75-80% of your RMR is determined by your muscle mass. 2. HGH – Human Growth Hormone –Metabolic workouts are performed at high intensity for short interval periods. The work capacity forces our body to produce power. The more power you produce the more HGH your body secretes. HGH helps the body build more muscle while burning more fat.
