Researcher discovers a muscle that can promote glucose and fat burning to fuel metabolism for hours while sitting

The soleus muscle in the calf, though only 1% of your body weight, can do big things to improve the metabolic health in the rest of the body if activated correctly. University of Houston professor Marc Hamilton is pioneering the “soleus pushup” (SPU) which elevates muscle metabolism for hours, even while one is sitting. Hamilton’s method flips that upside down and makes the soleus use as much energy as possible for a long duration. The SPU is a unique physiological physiological movement that capitalizes on the unique physiological features of the muscular soleus movement.
