The Scientific Metabolism Quiz determines your unique current resting/passive and active metabolism.
Do you naturally (genetically) have a strong/increased/fast metabolism, a weak/slow metabolism, or a normal metabolism somewhere in between?
Do you struggle with weight loss and gain, no matter how hard you work?
How much does your exercise and work/daily activity affect your metabolic rate (decreased, steady, increased) and how many calories you burn, including your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE)?
Calculating Passive and Active Metabolism – Scientific Metabolism Quiz
Did you know that one (1) pound of muscle/mass burns six (6) calories per day, but one (1) pound of skinny fat and/or regular fat only burns 2-3 calories per day? Your unique genetic body composition directly affects your body shape and metabolism/metabolic rate along with diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
The more skinny fat you have on your body where genetically you should have muscle/mass, the more prone you are to putting on excess regular fat. The more skinny fat and/or regular fat you have on your body, the slower/weaker your metabolism, and the fewer calories you burn. And, the fewer calories you burn, the harder it is to lose regular fat weight and keep excess regular fat weight off to avoid being overweight or obese. Your overall health, including safe, successful weight loss and management, depends on accurately understanding your specific body’s metabolism, metabolic rate, and daily caloric needs.
The more intense your exercise, the more it affects metabolism (metabolic rate), as well as muscular hypertrophy, muscular endurance, muscular strength, muscular power, weight gain and loss, and overall health, no less.
Duration and the range of movement of your body and how many total body muscles (arms, legs, torso, neck, head) you use in your workout affect intensity, no less.
Minimal Cardio is less than 40 steps per minute
Very Light Cardio is 40 to 69 steps per minute
Light Cardio is 70 to 99 steps per minute
Moderate Cardio is 100 to 129 steps per minute
Intense Cardio is 130 or more steps per minute
How diligent and quick you are in terms of doing one exercise and then moving to another without taking a break in between or talking to other people or the like, as well as the type and order of your exercises, all affect intensity. The following scale is a rough indicator:
*Minimal is 1-2 pounds, 1-8 reps or more per set
*Very Light is 3-5 pounds, 4-12 reps or more per set
*Light is 5-10 pounds, 4-12 reps or more per set
*Moderate is 10 to 20 pounds or more, 8-12 reps or more per set and sometimes maxing out weight (which is fewer reps)
*Intense is no less than 20 to 40 pounds or more, 12 or more reps per set and/or regularly maxing out weight (which is fewer reps)
Bulking = generally higher weight and fewer reps
Cutting/Toning = generally lower weight and more reps
Calisthenics, Yoga, Pilates, Isometrics
Intensity = whether exercise(s)/pose(s) is standing, sitting, prone, or supine relative to duration, length of hold, number of reps, added weight, incline or decline, posture, breath control, and the connection of postures through breath and movement.
