When it comes to losing weight or gaining muscle, your metabolism plays an important role in improving your health. Unfortunately the aging process slows it down and makes it difficult to reach your fitness goals but don't worry, there are things you can do to help slow down this effect. Watch the video below to learn how you can spike your metabolism at any age.
Here are my 3 Tips to Spiking Your Metabolism for any age:
1) Eat throughout the day.
From the time you wake up to the moment you lay your head down at night, you should have 3-5 meals spread out throughout the day. Start with breakfast, lunch, and dinner with two snacks in between meals for starters but with the correct amount of macro-nutrients for your current weight and goal weight.
2) Do HIIT Training
HIIT Training means "High Intensity Interval Training" and you can literally do this any place with ZERO equipment. If you have a gym membership with loads of equipment at your arsenal...high five to you! But you don't need that type of equipment to start seeing results. Whether you train outside or in a gym, start off with 20 seconds ON (at 80-85% effort) and 40 seconds OFF (at 40-50% effort) for 5-10 minutes for beginners, 10-15 minutes for intermediate, and 15-20 minutes for advance athletes.
3) Drink more Water & Get plenty of Sleep
Before you head off to work or school for the day, pack a couple bottles of water to keep you hydrated and brain functioning at 100%. When we get a little dehydrated we aren't ourselves and sometimes that can affect the way we perform on the job or in the classroom. Trust me, making these small improvements will take you further and keep your mind a bit more balanced.
Sleep is another important subject that you cannot overlook. Sleep is just as essential as exercise and nutrition. According to the National Sleep Foundation, studies show that sleep deprivation can affect your overall health and happiness.
