What is your workout costing you?
Time, money, energy, your sanity....?Ready to turn the tables and create the expense of FAT LOSS? That is what everyone desires in the first place, right?
As you lose the fat, you reveal a lean, toned, beautiful new body.
However as you begin your fitness plan, it can be quite confusing for many programs lead you to believe that the best, fastest and most satisfying results are found in "Weight Loss" - only perpetuating the very unhealthy relationship we have with the scale.
Leading us to make the choices that causes the numbers to fluctuate which only drains our mental energies as we fret over what we are doing wrong to make the scale and our bodies so uncooperative with our efforts.
Time to stop the insanity!
Change your focus to Fat Loss and try what DOES work when it comes to effective and efficient workouts so you can stop wasting your time, money, energy and sanity on a workout program that is not delivering the results you so badly desire.
Intense Full Body Resistance Training
Intense = Challenging
No lolly gagging, no chatting while working out, no hour long workout sessions.
Just simple, to the point, compound movements that are performed in a super set fashion- typically 6 exercises performed in pairs, back to back with little to no rest.
This allows you to work the largest muscle groups in your body to the point of CHANGE - initiating the increase of lean muscle.
The more intense your workout, the more EXPENSIVE it is for your body - therefore your body must PAY in the form of FAT LOSS.
Muscle is essential to Fat Loss!
The more lean muscle you have, the more fat your burn, the more inches you lose, the faster you get back into your skinny jeans!
One of the most convincing reasons why Fit Yummy Mummy workouts deliver results so quickly is due to the intense nature of the Full Body Workout.
The more muscles you work in a short period of time not only allows you to burn a significant amount of calories WHILE you are working out.....but does so l-o-n-g after your workout ends.
After your workout is over, you actually get your body to work for you.
With this system in place, how much easier could the process of Fat Loss be?
You simply cannot get this same effect with.....
No matter how long you do cardio, for cardio does NOTHING to increase lean muscle - and in fact, the more you DO, the more you risk losing lean muscle. In FACT, your body actually begins to break muscle down in order to provide you with the fuel you need to keep going.
Intervals are the ideal solution.
Intervals are a type of “cardio” workout where you alternate brief, high intensity periods of exercise (where you work out as intensely as you can) for a short period of time followed by active recovery periods, where you slow down just long enough to catch your breath before you repeat this sequence of events. The shorter, more-intense your session, the more calories you burn and the more lean muscle you preserve.
~ Hour Long Resistance Training Workouts
If it is taking an hour to do your workouts - you are missing the point of consolidating your workouts into full body, metabolism boosting moves. Plus, you are missing out on the intensity and challenge a true fat burning workout can deliver.
For those of you who are familiar with short burst resistance training, you know right away that when you are working out intensely, it is very difficult to go much longer than 15-20 minutes!
Also, the longer your workout, the longer you place your body in a state of stress. This leads to an increase cortisol - the stress hormone. STRESS is GOOD for you in Small Dose . This is exactly what is prescribed with the Fit Yummy Mummy short burst resistance training workouts for it stimulates NEW muscle growth.
Hour long stress producing workout sessions are just not effective and actually can be counterproductive to your efforts. Cortisol is known for increasing Fat Storage. AND did you know cortisol also breaks down lean muscle? What a double whammy! Yet another reason why Less is More.
~ Isolating One Muscle Group at a Time
Once again, this misses out on the concept of intensity. Burning out one small muscle group at a time comes nowhere close to the metabolic expense of targeting those SAME tiny muscle groups with compound movements.
This is why each and every Fit Yummy Mummy workout is designed around lower body, upper body (push and pull) and core movements.
The main reason why many women choose to isolate muscle groups is due to the horrid myth of Spot Reduction. You simply cannot burn fat off one area simply by working that specific muscle. The muscle does not own the fat on top of it.
Short Burst Resistance Training is the System that Works.
Get More Bang for Your Buck! Why would you want to do it any other way?
If any of the above scenarios describe your current workout plan I highly encourage you to try a new system. Time to create the expense that delivers results!
