All this month, we are are knocking down barriers to movement so you can be more active more of the time!
Some people seem to just have more energy. It’s like they have more pep in their step and don’t drag and sag their way through the afternoon. There are a million factors that can contribute to this, and one of them is muscle tone.
Increased muscle tone can lead to a higher metabolic rate, which can increase your daily energy levels. The great thing about this fact is that it doesn’t matter whether you are young or old. The effect is the same across age.
As people age, they can feel more run down and tired. Increasing muscle tone is a wonderful way to counteract this tendency.

You don’t have to be a muscle-bound body builder to get this effect. In fact, you don’t even have to lift weight at all. You can increase your muscle tone by walking more during your day, remembering to take the stairs, swimming, or doing any fun activity on a consistent basis.
If you enjoy resistance training or calisthenics like pushups, squats, sit ups etc., by all means do them as well because they’ll definitely help increase muscle tone and your energy levels along with it.
