All of my Reno bootcamp clients know that I’m constantly on the lookout for new research that can make my Unstoppable Fitness Formula even MORE effective.
For example, I noticed that a certain type of workout was getting clients better weight loss results in less time. When I went looking for the reason why, I found out research has proven that training in a certain way can elevate your metabolism for 39 hours AFTER your workout.
And that’s only one tiny piece of what I do to get your body changing. For instance, adding interval training greatly improves your results, as does the correct exercise choices and set/rep scheme.
Well… I was looking through some newly published studies (in preparation for my next seminar) and I found this…
McKay et al.
Effect of short-term high-intensity interval training vs. continuous training on O2 uptake kinetics, muscle deoxygenation, and exercise performance.J Appl Physiol. 2009 Jul;107(1):128-38. Epub 2009 May 14.
This study used 8 sessions of 8-12 intervals. The intervals were one minute hard, then one minute easy, repeat.
The “cardio” group did 8 sessions of 90-120 minutes steady-state exercise (like going on a treadmill or elliptical at an even pace)
To compare times: The interval group exercised 80 minutes over the 19 day study. The steady-state group exercised for 825 minutes.
As it turns out, the subjects had the SAME adaptations despite the interval group exercising for only a tenth of the time as the steady-state group.
If you know what you’re doing you can cut down your workout time by 90%!
Let me repeat: YOU CAN CUT YOUR WORKOUT TIME BY:
This proves the importance of following the right training program!
In my seminars I share studies that show:
- How one type of interval training burns 900% MORE abdominal fat than regular training…
- How ONE simple change in your eating makes the difference between losing thirteen pounds of fat or thirteen pounds of toned muscle…
- How endurance training makes NO change in your resting metabolism (where you burn most of your calories)
- That the addition of 45 minutes of hard aerobic training, 5 times a week for twelve weeks – has NO effect on fat loss!
Those are just a few of the things that my research and experience has shown me.
If you train with me, you’re great! You’re following a proven, research-backed system that delivers incomparable results.
If you’re training in your own, don’t just “wing it”. Do some research in publications that don’t have glossy covers and find out what REALLY works.
Here’s one of my favorite free research tools: http://www.PubMed.gov
All right, I’m going to get back to geeking out over some new studies, talk to you soon!
