Muscle burns three times more calories than fat does, so the more muscle you have, the more energy your body will need to produce. People with a more lean muscle have a higher resting metabolic rate, meaning they burn more calories without doing anything. And, the best way to build muscle is to hit the weights hard. Full-body workouts provide the biggest boost.
