Modern fitness has got it all wrong.
Our training methods and strategies to lose weight are mostly arbitrary rules created by bodybuilders in the 1960s…and never changed.
Here’s a great example: doing 3 sets of 10 reps for each exercise.
I had a great mentor right out of college that asked me: “Why 3 sets? Why not 4 or 5? If 3 is better than 2?”
Why train for 30-60 minutes? Why lift weights every other day? Why do ‘cardio’ everyday?
*****I hate the term ‘cardio’ because all movement uses the heart. Cardio is gym slang that makes no sense to a physiologist. Cardio training should be called endurance training.
Here’s all that matters if your trying to change your body: Did you work it harder than what it’s used to and thus created a need for it to change and adapt?…THAT’S IT!
Doing 45 minutes are the same ‘cardio’ workout over and over makes you very efficient. That means your workout burns less and less calories every time you do it. (And by the way, calories burned during a workout is completely irrelevant). More importantly, your body will stop changing and adapting as it becomes more efficient.
It takes 60 to 90 seconds of putting a muscle under load, more intensely than what it’s used to, to create change, adapt, and burn more fat.
That’s all. Anything beyond the minimum amount of stress to create change has little to no benefit and slows your progress.
If you went to the gym and picked 5 weight training exercises, did each one for 60-90 seconds (the point of muscle failure), that’s all you would need to do for the next 5 days!
You would burn more fat and get stronger! Faster.
And you would do it far more faster than any other training method. Guaranteed!
There are lots of methods for losing weight and getting in shape. I’m only interested in the science and doing what works best.
Why take 12 weeks to lose 10 pounds when you can do it in 4? Safely, naturally, and scientifically.
