Do you think you’re going to lose FAT the more times you step on the scale, calorie restrict, or exercise more? What about buying one of those step meters?
There is an epidemic: people purchasing work out videos, as seen on TV gadgets, diet pills, cook books and electronics that promise us a better looking body and slowing down your biological clock.
Because your metabolism slows down as you age, this makes fat burning and losing next to impossible. Your hormones are responsible for all of your youth like qualities such as healthy skin tone, strong lean muscle, robust energy and insatiable sex drive. Your hormone efficiency is determined by how fast your body ages. Aging makes your bones weaker and brittle, robbing your body of vital minerals. After age 40 your biological clock starts to speed up and age faster than your chronological age. Each year that passes you can add an extra 6 months.
This is reality but it doesn’t have to be this way. You have the power to slow aging and prolong your youth. When you start exercising the right way, you can reverse aging process.
The wrong way to exercise: Cardio Training
A lot of people think cardio exercise is the way to burn fat and promote health. In fact, doing long frequent cardio sessions will break down your muscles and increase the production of free radicals. Free radicals damage your cells and promote aging. There is an alternative type of exercise that burns fats and slows down the aging. The best part is it takes only 12 minutes per day and it triggers your youth enhancing hormones.
The right way to exercise: Burst Training or High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
HIIT offers a strategy of short intense anaerobic exercise with shorter less intense recovery periods. This type of exercise provides more fat burning and improved glucose metabolism. Studies show HIIT increases your testosterone, loose more calories, increases oxygen and more energy than traditional cardio training. You don’t have to be an Olympic athlete or weight trainer to do this exercise. It works for those just returning back to their exercise routine or some one who has been exercising for years. You don’t even need a gym membership or equipment! Here is a great schedule to start with:
Weeks 1-2: Every other day
15 seconds of high intensity exercise (sprints, push ups, running in place, jumping jacks)
60 seconds rest or low intensity exercise (walking, stretching)
Repeat 10 times
Total time is 14 minutes
Weeks 3-4: Every other day
30 seconds high intensity exercise
60 seconds rest or low intensity exercise
Repeat 10 times
Total time is 17 minutes
HIIT is all about pushing your body to your maximum potential. A great indicator that you are doing it correctly is if you are sweating by the end of the total time. As you get really good at it, you can start to decrease your rest periods in between your intervals.
