Welcome to Free Fitness Gym,
We have a big calorie burning workout for you today that will target the whole body. We have started to include a calorie count and difficulty rating for each video to make it easier for you to understand what each workout will provide you with. The calorie count is not an exact science and every person will differ slightly when it comes to calories used during a fitness workout. Calorie count will also vary depending on how much effort you put into each workout, plus the size of the individual doing the workout. A bigger person will burn more calories than a smaller person simply because the bigger person has more weight to shift around. Possibly the most important thing to remember when exercising is that no matter how many calories you burn during the workout, you will still keep burning calories many hours after a workout because your metabolism will have sped up, and will remain so for several hours.
The spike in metabolic rate for hours after a workout is why some people choose to exercise in the morning, because they want to get the full benefit of the metabolic spike during the day. This will aid in weight loss. If you exercise just before bed your metabolic rate will spike, but quickly drop when you go to sleep , meaning you will not get such a benefit from the post workout metabolic spike. It is for this reason that when people are looking to lose weight, they are recommended to workout in the morning. On the flip side if you are looking to bodybuild then it is better to do this at 4pm when testosterone levels are at their highest, and bed time is not that far away. The elevated levels of testosterone will give your body the maximum muscular benefits for muscle growth, and sleep relatively shortly after a workout will repair the muscles used. When you sleep your body produces a hormone which helps to repair muscle, something which does not happen during the day. This is why a good night sleep is so important for people who exercise. This is the science behind exercise so use it to your benefit.
