Let me make this simple to understand.
With a zillion diets and even more workout plans than you can shake a dumbbell at, it is no wonder that so many well meaning folks get confused when it comes to getting in shape and burning off the belly flab…fast.
Today, I want to share 4 comprehensive keys with you that pretty much sums up what all of us need to do to get lean and stay lean for life.
It doesn’t get any easier to understand, so here it goes.
Top 2 Workout Tips
* Be Efficient, Be Effective with total body workouts: Forget "leg day". Forget "chest and triceps day". This approach is outdated and not nearly as productive as using full body training for fat loss and fitness. This could mean doing a five-exercise circuit (designed to work your entire frame) at least three times per week. Within each session, you will alternate between 50 seconds of peak intensity effort and 10 seconds of rest for each a double-leg (ie: squat), push (ie: push-up), single-leg (ie: lunge), pull (ie: row), and core (ie: plank) exercise. Perform up to 4 continuous rounds without rest for a 20-minute total body fat slammer workout.
* Use the Power of Intervals: It is a scientifically proven fact: interval training is will burn nine times more body fat than ordinary exercise and elevates metabolism for up to 48 hours following your workout. Perform cardio intervals on non-strength training days three times per week. Selecting your cardio exercise of choice, alternate between 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest and repeat this 30 second interval eight times for four total minutes followed by a one-minute rest. Repeat for up to 20 total minutes. This routine works best with a body weight cardio exercise like running in place, jumping jacks or jumping rope.
Top 2 Nutrition Tips
* Get up, eat early and frequently: Don’t wait around and skip the chance to jumpstart your metabolism with the proper fuel for your lean, mean sexy machine. Eat immediately upon waking and then every few hours to starve body fat (burn) and feed muscle (build). By continuously stoking your metabolic furnace, and eating some high quality animal protein (meat, eggs, cheese, etc.) at every feeding, you’ll also keep your metabolism cranked up all day and prevent binge eating later in the day. (Yea, I know…that “late-night” snacking sounds familiar, I was once guilty!)
* All Carbs are NOT created equal: Eat an unlimited amount of fibrous, nutrient dense green veggies to fill your belly both during and between meals. To ramp up fat burning performance, try to limit fruit and other carbohydrate consumption to within 1-2 hours post-workout when your body is looking to soak up those particular starches and sugars.
