MTB Notes

MTB Notes
1/2 pound of muscle turns into fat for every year you age past 20, if you do not incorporate some type of resistance strength training into your exercise routine

A pound of muscle at rest burns 50 more calories per day than fat.

So after 20, you accumulate fat istead of muscle and you burn less calories, thus building more fat. Since muscle is denser than fat and takes up less space you also look less flabby though you weigh the same as a peer

A cyclist will typically burn 2,500 to 5,000 calories on a 4 to 6 hour ride.

Calories are burned up to 20 minutes after an end of a strength training workout.
