Welcome back to another vlog, athletes! This week, Chris gives you the rundown on burning calories.
You might be wondering... why does the person sitting next to me, for instance, burn more calories while running 1 mile than I would if I ran 1 mile?
In this workout, Chris gives you an overview of the factors that effect the quantity of calories burned. He elaborates on the reasons pertaining to the high degree of variance surrounding metabolism and its effect on calorie expenditure. He reviews the effects of height and weight, age, and intensity and clarifies the effects of these factors. For instance, if you are taller and or have more muscle mass you will inevitably burn more calories because you have more calories to expend at baseline. Also, as your get older, the rate of your biological, metabolic activity decreases in an inverse relationship to age. In turn, this decreases the amount of calories burned upon exertion. However, this can be combated with a higher level of intensity which will increase the oxygen demand of your body and consequently burn more calories.
The best exercises to burn the most calories include compound exercises that Chris includes in this routine which utilizes a large group of muscles rather than a single muscle group. If you increase the amount of muscles that are engaged within an exercise, you increase the amount of calories burned per exercise! Of course, this is easier said than done and can be difficult to sustain. Therefore, it is vital to maintain proper form while executing these exercises in order to optimize your workout and increase its efficacy.
When trying to lose weight, or burn calories, it is also very important to be mindful and conscientious of all of these factors. This will facilitate your growth and achievement of your goal while preventing discouragement and cessation. Proper training is grounded upon your quality of training, so make sure to training harder, better, and stronger with Chris on the Heria Pro App!
