Boost your body's metabolism through exercise

Metabolism and energy metabolism refer to the process of converting food into energy for the body to function. There are many factors to improve this process. Among them, exercise is one of the ways to promote it.

1. Why can exercise promote metabolism?

If you consider the body as a machine, then the metabolism is the conversion of energy from food for the body's machinery to operate. Fast or slow energy metabolism is not the same for everyone. There are a few factors that can speed up the metabolism, or slow it down, some of which are out of our control, such as age, sex, and genetic factors.
Sometimes metabolism can also slow down due to underactive thyroid. Once the triggers are identified, speeding up the metabolism shouldn't be a big deal for us. Let's focus on improving the factors that can be improved, exercise is a specific example.
Muscle cells need a lot of energy, which means they consume a huge amount of calories. In fact, they burn more calories than fat cells even when our bodies are not exercising. Therefore, the effects of exercise will last longer than the time you spend on it.

Exercise becomes even more important because of the aging of the body. As the body ages, muscle mass decreases with age and as a result, metabolism slows down. Only exercise can prevent that effect. This is not difficult, you need to regularly challenge your muscles in two ways:
1.1 Increase your workout Any type of exercise like Zumba or jogging burns calories. Move harder and your body will burn more calories. Split intervals are a good idea, you can do them with any type of cardio. The basic idea of ​​this is to switch back and forth between higher and lower intensities. Increase the challenge yourself, then slow down and repeat. For example, do as many jumps as you can in 1 minute, then walk in place for 2 minutes. Repeat for 15 minutes.

1.2 Lifting weights This is also a good form of exercise. Because muscle uses more calories than fat, building muscle will make you a more efficient calorie-burning machine, even when you're resting.
Twice a week, do one or two exercises of 12 to 15 repetitions in each major muscle group (abdomen, biceps, glutes, thighs). The more you exercise, the faster your metabolism will go, and the better your heart, bones, and even mood will get.
