More muscle = higher resting metabolism. More muscle and less fat means that you’ll burn more calories at work, on the couch, and while you’re sleeping. Muscle tone helps you get lean, look lean, and stay lean.
4. Muscle is functional.
Having more muscle means you’re stronger and fitter, which translates into better functional performance in everyday life. You’ll look A LOT better when you’re the only friend that can carry a heavy TV up a flight of stairs. It’ll at least get you a free beer, and maybe a date.
