If you’ve been to one of our health seminars or are a current patient, you’ve probably heard me say that weight-loss is 70-80% diet. The types of food you eat on a regular basis (not the amount of calories) play by far the largest role in determining what type of physiology your body experiences.
There are only 2 types of physiology when it comes to the type of fuel your body uses for energy; you’re either a SUGAR burner or you’re a FAT burner. Everybody desires to have the metabolism that burns fat with ease; you know, when you wake up in the morning looking more lean and vascular than the night before? Don’t we all hate those people? Haha.
Well the truth is that this internal physiology is capable and achievable for everyone -it just takes the right type of training.
We’re not going to get into the dietary aspect of that, here; in a nut-shell one must be following our Advanced Plan Nutrition Protocol for at least 90 days to begin reshaping physiology. The simple version is that if you wish to switch from being a sugar burner to a fat burner, you must stop eating so much sugar and grain.
Once that is in order –and it MUST be in order first– there is an extremely powerful way to exercise that almost seems to good to be true. If you would like to:
- Massively boost your fat-burning hormones like Testosterone and Growth Hormone
- Lose weight while you sleep
- Maximize your time by only exercising short amounts -Like literally 10-20 minutes!
- Only have to work out every other day
Then Burst Training is exactly what you’ve been looking for! Gone are the days where you must toil in the gym on the treadmill, trying to maintain your presence in the “anaerobic” zone; those exercises are outdated and only burn calories while you’re exercising.
The phenomenal benefit of Burst Training is that you actually burn more fat after you’re done exercising, for the next 24-48 hours! This is because when you work in in short bursts at a very high intensity level, your body will dramatically raise your fat burning hormones and they remain elevated. Better yet, if you’re truly going all out during each “set”, you only need to perform this exercise for around 10-20 minutes every other day!
Make sure to watch the posted video of Dr. Josh Axe demonstrating a simple, 6-set Burst Training workout for a visual example, but the premise is simple: Perform an chosen exercise at a very high intensity (90 % of your maximum) for a duration of 30-60 seconds. You then rest for another 30-60 seconds before doing a second set of the same or different exercise. That’s it! It may sound easy enough, but trust me, if you’re doing this correctly, these sets of a minute or less will KICK YOUR BUTT! And if you get to the minute mark and you don’t feel tired or feel like you could have done more, ramp it up!
Add this workout to an awesome diet and watch your body transform!
