Many of us that go to the gym or are in the process of beginning their fitness journey at some point in time will ask the million-dollar question. How do you speed up your metabolism? In general, most people ask this question because they have a desire to lose weight.
If I asked you why are you out of shape, would you know why? Would you give me the truth or lie like a politician? Would you do something about it after our conversation, or would you walk away saying, "yeah, I know," making it seem like you're about to take action when we both know you are going home to sit on your butt?
When it comes to fitness, there's so much information out there that it may be hard to figure out what's true and what's false. If you go to someone you know and ask about protein shakes, you hear one thing but go to someone else, and it's an entirely different story. That can drive someone crazy, who's trying to find the truth about a particular topic. What makes it worse is that you never really get your answer, so now you're stuck and you don't know what to do.
Do you lift weights? Are you a fan of it? Are you trying to build large rock hard muscles in hopes of picking up just about anything and anyone? Well, if you are, that's great, but that's not what lifting weights are about, and it's not only intended for those individuals. Weight lifting is for everyone and anyone, you don't have to be a bodybuilder, powerlifting, or compete in strongman competitions to do so.
