How to Lose Weight FAST Without Doing Any Boring Cardio

The Shocking Cardio Fact

In this short post I’m going to give you the number one component in fat loss so you can finally start changing your fat loss failure into fat loss success.  

If you’ve been a follower of my emails, you will know that I don’t promote long cardio for fat loss. It just doesn’t work as well as people once thought. There was a time where people thought that running on treadmill for an hour would help them get slim and lean.

Times have changed my friend and even if your local gym doesn’t want to tell you the truth – I will.

Stop doing cardio. Why? Well listen up, because I have an interesting study for you.

Canadian researchers at Queen’s University tested a workout using metabolic resistance training against long cardio.

(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)

22 women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks in one of three groups.

Group 1 – The first group used the treadmill for 30 minutes running at 85% of the their maximum heart rate

Group 2 – The second group performed a Tabata style workout. This is where they did 20 seconds of one exercise for 8 rounds with a 10 seconds rest in-between each round.

Group 3 – The third group did nothing.

Here were the results;

Both groups that trained (groups 1 and 2) increased their aerobic levels by the same amount – 7-8%. So let me just repeat that, the group that did only 4 MINUTES of exercise (group 2) increased their aerobic levels the same as the group who did 30 MINUTES of exercise. Not only that, but the group who did the 4 minutes of exercise also increased their muscular endurance.

Resistance Training

So what does this mean?

Well, by using compound resistance exercises in your program you can burn fat for up to 48 hours after you finish working out. So you’re not only increasing your aerobic fitness levels but you are also maximizing the amount of fat you burn as well.

So if you are trying to burn fat and lose weight, then the best route to take is resistance training.

How Many Reps?

Now onto the how many reps you should be doing debate.

A lot of people think that the more reps you doing the more calories you’ll burn.

Now while it is true that if you do a high number of reps per exercise you will burn fat, this doesn’t mean you can’t do low rep/high weight exercises.

The best program for burning fat will combine both high reps AND low reps.

The best program will have various different workout methods.

This is called Metabolic Resistance Training – the holy grail of fat loss.

By using a combination of, metabolic resistance training, metabolic conditioning training AND metabolic density training you will turn your body into fat burning furnace – FACT. So next time you want to jump on the treadmill and watch the gym’s TV’s while you run for hours – think about how much more you could be doing….in less time.

Cardio is pretty ineffective for fat loss – you’re just not going to see the results you’re looking for. Metabolic resistance
