I train and design a lot
loss programs for women. The main concepts of
every single one of my fat loss programs are always the same.
They focus on 5 fat loss
tips that I’m going to reveal to you now.
1) Do less
cardio. This is by far the one that is toughest for most
ladies to stick to when they want to lose fat. I don’t know why, but ladies love long, boring, joint pounding cardio sessions. I think
it’s because most women think that by doing resistance training, they’re going to turn into a guy and get
big, hulking muscles and grow a beard, so they do lots and lots of slow cardio in the “fat burning zone”
to get around this.
That's not how it works. First there’s no such thing as a fat burning zone. It’s a myth that should be laid to rest for good. Is there a point at which
your body burns a higher percentage of fat when exercising? Yes, but this also happens when you're
chilling out watching television and that's not generally thought of as a fat burning activity
Second, I want you to stop
thinking about calories burned while doing thworkout and start thinking
about the amount of fat burned while not exercising. There is a way to
do your cardio that gets you done in as little as 15 minutes that burns more fat throughout the remainder of the
day than 90 minutes of moderate cardio in your fat burning zone.
It’s called interval training. All interval training means is you mix short bouts of intense activity with longer
bouts of moderate activity.
Take the treadmill as an example. After you warm-up, you would run relatively fast for 20 seconds, followed by a slow
jog for 60 seconds, repeat that until you’ve gone about 12 minutes. Then cool down and you’re done. If you do it correctly, I promise you you’ll feel worked when you’re done and you’ll
be in and out of the gym quicker than most of the other ladies warm-up.
You don't have to use interval training with typical cardio
machines, either. You can mix bouts of burpees with mountain climbers as your interval training, or run
stairs, or anything that's pretty intense (relatively speaking). The best thing about it for busy moms like you is that it gets you finished
quicker, and delivers a lot better results.
2) Eat more
Fiber is king when it comes
loss. Eat more of it and you will lose
fat. Just start adding more fruits, vegetables, and healthy nuts to your daily diet and
you’ll notice results within days.
One quick note - I know whole
grains have a decent amount of fiber, but I don't want you to rely on grains for your fiber intake. Break
away from the grains and try other foods, like the ones mentioned above. Why? Because there are too
many grains in our overall diets and too much is definitely not a good thing.
3) Stop drinking diet
soda. Diet soda, believe it or not, can be making you gain weight. How is that you ask? Because it makes many ladies retain water. As if you didn’t have enough of that to worry about already, now you have to worry
about diet sodas making you retain water.
So, stop drinking them and you may lose upwards of 10 pounds in a
week. That's not a misprint.
4) Do resistance training 3 times per
week. No, you won’t get big burly muscles like a guy. In fact, many guys have trouble getting big muscles. It’s very, very hard to gain 1 pound of muscle and it’s even harder for women because
they naturally don’t have the hormones.
But doing resistance training
doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go hang out with the boys...especially when you're doing it
fat. Just stick to 3 full body workouts
that focus on full body movements like push-ups, rows, squats, lunges and full body core movements like planks
and mountain climbers rather than crunches.
Doing so will burn a lot more fat and tone your arms and legs much
faster than doing isolation movements like bicep curls, triceps kickbacks and the inner thigh
5) Stop doing so many crunches.
It drives me crazy to hear that people do hundreds of crunches
everyday because you're setting yourself up for failure, but you do receive a lot of anger and frustration.
That will not give you a flat, sexy stomach and will not help a busy lady like you lose stomach
fat. It may strengthen those muscles, but what good does that do if they’re hidden below a layer of
flabby goo or muffin top?
You have to lose stomach fat by following the previous 4 tips I
gave you. That’s how you get the firm, flat tummy you’ve always wanted. That’s how you get rid of the muffin
top and fit into those skinny jeans.
Not by doing endless amounts of crunches.
