#12 – Build Muscle
The truth is that doing exercises will keep your metabolism high; however, recent studies have shown that lifting weights instead of doing just cardio exercises will boost your metabolism better than cardio exercises. When people lift weights, they build more muscle. More muscle means burning fat better.
Fitness experts particularly recommend working out and lifting weights in the morning because metabolism will remain revved up for several hours after working out in the morning. The morning workout is always better than mid-day workout and evening workouts.
