    Calories to REPAIR muscle?

    Does your body burn excess calories to repair muscle? Like, when you workout you tear the muscle, and then it repairs itself bigger.

    So my question is: If I worked out today, will I burn more calories tomorrow simply because my muscles are repairing? Sort of like an after-workout calorie burn effect?
