The first thing you should ask yourself is what’s your goal?
Because this is THE Question to ask (and honestly answer) before you start any get in shape program, or if you’re not seeing results from your current program. This is where most mistakes are made too. Cookie cutter me-to programs that don’t match your goals.
Fat-loss(weight loss) is diet. Always has been always will be. No change in diet-no fat loss.
Reshaping your body, toning, and accelerating fat loss comes from your exercise selection.
Then you take your goals and build your program out from there.
Just as important as deciding what to do is deciding what NOT to do. Because you want to sure your program is aligned to your goals.
You don’t want to waste time on things that won’t get you the results you want.
If you’re a female your goal is fat(weight) loss and decreasing size and toning-or as I say “Get Small”. Or a guy that wants to get lean and defined.
Avoid these 3 time wasters.
1. No Change in Diet- Can’t work around this. If you want to decrease your bodyfat this is where it’s at. You can’t out-exercise your diet-and I think this is the number one reason people quit their own programs. They attempt to work their way into shape and then they quit because they’re frustrated at not seeing results.
I say put the majority of your effort into this during your first 4-8 weeks and you’ll actually See Results-on the scale-in your clothes and in the mirror. When you see results it makes sticking with your program much much easier.
2. Too Much Cardio- I think this is the most ineffective for fat-loss time-water for most people.
If you’re doing 45 min-60min. of cardio a week and not seeing results? Think about it are you really getting results? Or are you doing it out of compulsion or habit?
Do you realize you’re spending 12 hours a month doing something that doesn’t work? That’s a full day and a half! I’m going to give you back a day and a half of your month.
For just one month do some Short -Burst training(High Intensity Interval TrainingI) 2-3 times per week instead. Each workout will take you less than 20 minutes. And you’ll get actual results.
I’ve now given you back 12 hours of your month. And you’ll look better too.
3. Lifting light Weights (even worse no weight lifting!)– I think the idea of attempting to get into shape without lifting weights is just about dead.
More and more people are “getting it”.
The one thing holding people back from maximum results is lifting weights that are too light.
If you’re getting in 2-3 resistance workouts per week. At least once per week you should grab weights that are heavy enough that you can do no more than 8-10 repetitions.
After 3-4 weeks you’ll be amazed at the difference you’ll see in you fat-loss and appearance. Nothing in the exercise world reshapes the body faster than heavy resistance. You’ll see.
So now you know what NOT to do. And you’ve got an idea of what to do.
Because if you keep doing what you’re doing you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
