Cardio alone doesn’t target fat!

photo for blog 50Every day I see people grinding away on cardio machines hoping to lose weight. And week by week. Month by month. Year by year most still look the same. Why?

Fat loss can’t occur by cardio alone. Cardio combined with eating within your goals can enhance fat loss in 2 ways though by burning calories and speeding up your BMR (using different HIIT forms)

But

If you don’t do cardio correctly then it won’t help. For example if you’re trying to lose weight and have eaten 600 more calories than your body has burn for the day. So you go jogging for 30 minutes later that day which burns around 300 calories with maybe another 100 burned from the “after burn” effect. You would still be 200 over your expenditure and that means no reduction in your fat stores for the day, and you may actually gain weight.
Eating to your goals and working out leads to the results you want!

Tricep Press Downs

photo for blog 45There’s nothing better than great toned arms, and you can do this through eating towards your goals and using the correct arm workouts. Here’s a workout that hits the back of your arms known as the “triceps” which has 3 parts (lateral, long, and medial head) this press down exercise works the lateral head intensely. Aim for 3-5 sets of 10-25 reps!

Proper floor Crunch form

photo for blog 28Are you looking to sculpt some good abs? Proper form is key along with nutrition of course. Most people start their crunches wrong, this photo shows the proper way to begin a crunch. Shoulders lifted off the ground and back rounded so that you are applying contraction to your core and not your spine.

Every Rep gets you one step closure to your goals!

Every rep gets you one step closer to your goals! What if you looked or visualized working out like that? That every time you stepped in a gym, or outdoors or home, every rep got you closer to your goals. Your goals remember is not a stand still destination, it’s a contiual moving destination. Even when you say “Ok I like where my body is, I have my dream body now!” That’s not a stand still point, its a keep working busting your butt point to stay there, every rep gets you one step closure to your goals!

Fitness is a way of life!

You must make fitness your habit, and eventually it will become your way of life. So many people get caught up in short term goals to use fitness for, instead of making it apart of your life like you do with brushing your teeth and showering, when fitness becomes part of your life, you will see major positive results!
