I mentioned previously how I'm not going to have as much time exercise as I would like. So I thought, “How do I maximize my exercise?”
So logically I thought, “Muscles burn calories when we move.” So if I want to burn more calories, one way to do it is to have bigger muscles. While I may not have time for my walk today, I have 3 minutes to do some leg lifts, some sit ups, or other exercises. You may think, “Oh these are doing any good.” Then you wake up the next day and say, “Hey I feel something there.” So by having bigger muscles, when I DO exercise I will burn more calories than before.
So I may not have time to do my hour long walk, but when I take my 10 minutes to walk while I'm talking on the phone I will burn more calories because of the strength training I've done in just minutes at a time.
