Why Shaking When Strength Training Is Good

Burn More Calories at the Gym With This Tip

The next time you head to the gym for a strength-training session, be sure to keep this tip in mind.

Because each session should be challenging your muscles; that uncomfortable feeling means that you're building up those important muscle fibers. Since more muscle equals faster metabolism, don't shy away from feeling the burn — embrace it! Pin or print this poster to help you remember to push yourself.
