How many times have you sat on your barstool eating a piece of pie while sipping a creamy, sugar filled cup of coffee. Or when was the last time you sat on that same barstool enjoying your favorite beverage and the only benefit the barstool provided was a comfortable perch. I'm guessing the thought of exercise at those particular moments was the farthest thing from your mind. Well, all of that is about to change and the next time you utilize a barstool to support your unhealthy indulgences, you won't be able to walk away from the barstool without thinking, �Hmm, I suppose I should do a few reps to burn off that pie.�

Stoke the Fire with Upper Body and Ab Workout Routines

The benefit of incorporating strength training workout routines into your weight-loss program is that you will be building lean muscle which in turn will boost your metabolism and help you to burn calories even when you're not exercising. A traditional low calorie diet melts away the fat leaving you with a trimmed physique to which you might respond by inviting all of your buddies over for a celebration bonfire fueled by your old wardrobe. However, should you choose to replace the fat burning foods with burgers and fries the bulge you defeated with the onslaught of low calorie meals is going to return with a vengeance and reclaim its previous territory. The reason for this is that lean muscle is an unfortunate casualty of the low-calorie-only battle.

I may be going out on a limb here, but I'm guessing your goal is to not only lose wait fast but to keep it off for good. If that is correct then it's imperative that you build lean muscle which boosts your metabolism and keeps the calorie burning fire roaring!
