By less is more, I do not mean less food; I mean less exercise.
In cavemen days, hunters and gatherers weren’t concerned with losing weight or health and fitness.
They were busy surviving.
The gatherer’s crept along, bent down, stooped and collected berries and food from the ground. They stretched to pull down edible nuts and other things from trees and bushes. They may even had to scamper up a tree to get to the top branches.
Hunters walked, ran, sped until they saw the animal, then readied themselves for the kill. Once prepared, they exploded with massive amount of muscle to kill the prey and carry the heavy animal back to their families.
What does that suggest?
They worked hard or they worked long. They didn’t do both at the same time.
Our physiologies haven’t changed immensely since the early days.
Our habits have changed. We spend hours sitting, instead of walking, bending, climbing, sprinting and carrying heavy objects.
Obesity arises. Gyms spring up. Yo-yo diets thrive. We gain weight, lose weight. We join a gym and detest the workouts. We give up. We promise ourselves. We try and try and try.
But you know what? The fitness industry is mistaken
How many of us could stick to the Gwyneth Paltrow/Madonna program, workout 3 hours a day, 6 days a week for that grand body. Of course, they are paying hard cash to the same fitness trainer, who’s job it is to push, push, push them, or they would have given up by now.
But that method works for the time that they are training. In other words, calories are burnt only while during aerobic exercise, but don’t extend burn when the exercise is done
How would you feel if I told you there is a way to workout that would enable you to burn calories for 10 days after the workout and have a permanent effect on the success of your fitness regime?
Well there, is. It’s been known for many years, but very few people know about it.. Why? Who knows.
Why Less is More . .
The fitness success system is based on the following facts.
1. Muscle is dense compared to fat.
2. Exercising the same body parts more than once every 10 days leads to over training and injury.
3. Muscles burn calories after the workout is over because they are heavier and take more calories just to carry them.
4. Training the way most people are taught results in staying in a catabolic state, which is the state of breaking the muscles down.
5. Your body was meant to work long or hard, just as in the cave days, but not both.
So instead of doing the same workout every day or 3 times a week for long periods of time, you need to work your muscles for short periods, but to the point of positive, momentary muscular failure, then rest for 10 days, in order to build muscle and lose weight.
Positive, momentary muscular failure means, you are unable to do even one additional rep. For best results, you should reach positive, momentary, muscular failure within 7-8 reps,
Then rest that specific muscle for a full 10 days.
So, get to it, workout intensely, then rest in to reach your fitness success destination.
