Fat loss just got a whole lot faster…

Contrary to what mainstream fitness has been saying for decades, steady state aerobic training (such as long slow distance running) is not the most direct route to fat loss. It’s true that moderate intensity, steady state exercise uses primarily fat oxidation as fuel, but that isn’t the total picture.

In a study done to compare the fat burning benefits of traditional “cardio” training and high intensity intervals, two groups were assigned different training regimens. Group A performed the regular moderate intensity cardio regime (ex. jogging or bicycling) for 20 weeks, and Group B performed a high intensity interval training routine for 15 weeks. The results of each group were recorded. Group B lost nine times more fat than Group A — and in 5 weeks less!

Why does this type of intense training burn more fat than moderate intensity “cardio” training? Simply put, after you finish your training session your metabolism explodes and burns a pile of calories.

Those calories are being burned because your body must recover from the intense workout you just exposed it to. Contrary to what you might expect, you burn the most fat after your workout — not during your workout.

In addition this kind of training is fast! One of the best things about it is that you no longer have to spend 30 minutes to an hour jogging your life away on a treadmill.

So get in, get to it, and get back to your LIFE…

    If I am not strong enough to do this, what compensation should I use? Go much more slowly but still go into a fairly deep lunge or try for a quick pace and less pronounced lunge? TX for all you share!

    These lunges are awesome! If you want to make them harder, place your front foot on a stable object, start small and build up. When you jump to change you foot position, try to make sure you are doing it above the object. If you want it even more challenging, do not use your hands, place them on your hips.
    Thanks,
    Jenn

    Greets Adam,

    Great Video… Have you any plans on opening up a web store for work out clothing? Looking to get some comfortable pants like the ones you are wearing in the video. What is the name brand of those pants and the shirt you are wearing?

    I know this is the wrong area to ask, but I don’t know where to go. The ShapeSifter videos are not loaded/active on the page. I was able to download the guide
    Thanks

    Hey Adam,
    Great video and thanks for the thorough explanation on it. I lifted weights for over 25 years and just within the last year started trying some body weight exercises. It is like a whole new world has opened up for me. I really love it!

    I have been training outside in the woods a lot this summer and have had some unbelievable workouts! I never would of thought that you could get this good of a workout without weights! You are really converting me over to body weight training!
