2. Boosts your metabolism

I’m sure a majority of us have heard at some point in our life that working out in the morning helps to boost our metabolism. So in simple terms, the higher your metabolism is, the more calories you burn on a daily basis. Obviously, the more active you are during your workouts, the more calories you are going to burn.  Metabolism is the term for a set of chemical reactions that occur in the cells of living organisms to sustain life. The metabolic processes lead to growth and reproduction and allow living organisms to maintain their structures and respond to the surrounding environment.

Metabolism: The whole range of biochemical processes that occur within a living organism. Metabolism consists of anabolism (the buildup of substances) and catabolism (the breakdown of substances). The term metabolism is commonly used to refer specifically to the breakdown of food and its transformation into energy. Exercise can boost your metabolism. Building lean muscle mass by exercising can slightly increase your resting metabolic rate (the number of calories your body burns while at rest). In addition, vigorous exercise can increase your metabolic rate for hours after exercise.
