What Is Your Basal Metabolic Rate?

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) accounts for the all energy required to sustain core body functions and makes up a significant proportion of daily expenditure. Total BMR value is largely dictated by age, body size and how much lean mass we have.

Therefore one of the best ways to increase basal metabolic rate is to build additional muscle through resistance exercise. The net result is you burn more calories at rest which is great for fat loss.
