Increasing your metabolism is essential in your workout as this is the process that boosts and generates energy for the body to help in developing your muscles. As you develop a good diet, you will be able to tweak the maximum efficiency of your body in producing energy which is very much needed when you are working out. Even all your normal activities like walking, sleeping, breathing and plain sitting require energy, so imagine how much would be needed when working out strenuously?
For gaining muscle, you will indeed be working out strenuously. You will be doing lots of strength training and weight lifting. Heavy weights will greatly help you in developing muscles. This can get very tiring though, so you really have to be determined in keeping up with your program. A professional trainer will be able to provide you a specialized strength training that will be able to maximize your training time.

In fact, you won’t really be able to notice them in the first few weeks. But don’t be discouraged, just stick with your program. The body and muscle pains you feel after working out is a clear sign that what you’re doing is working. Feel the burn.

A good diet (proper eating habits), and a rigid strength training and workout regimen, will definitely set you on the road to losing weight, gaining muscle, and basically bring out a better looking and healthier you.
