In a recent study published by the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60 minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an entire year. Given the amount of exercise, you’d expect weight losses of 20, 30 pounds, or more wouldn’t you?
The findings were somewhat of a surprise showing the average fat loss for female subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6 pounds of fat over the year. That’s over 300 hours of aerobic exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber.
So what’s the better way? I hear you all ask, what is a better workout building muscle? It’s a combination of interval training and strength training to get better body sculpting results. With intervals, you’ll achieve more fat burning results in less workout time. The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.
If you can burn fat and lose weight with a workout building muscle. Why do some people think that you don’t burn fat with strength training? A new study hot off the presses from the prestigious Journal of Applied Physiology showed strength training boosts metabolism by 10% after exercise and increases fat burning by 100%. In this study, subjects did a standard three exercise set strength training program focusing on multi-muscle exercises and showed just how powerful it is for fat loss…
During strength training, you apply turbulence to your muscles, causing an increase in your metabolism and fat burning after the workout. That’s how you build muscle and burn fat at the same time. So forget about the “calorie readout” on the cardio machines. While strength training doesn’t burn as many calories as traditional aerobic training during the workout itself, it continues to burn calories and fat long after your workout.
We need to understand that it doesn’t matter how much fat we burn as a percent of total calories burned during the workout. In fact, we don’t even need to get hung up on the amount of calories burned during our exercise session. All we need to do is focus on boosting metabolism with strength training. Boosting metabolism with interval training and eating for fat loss with the proper nutrition guidelines.
The Turbulence Training program will give you the big picture. That means getting your diet and nutrition in order, then focus your workouts on brief, intense strength and interval training workouts that increase your metabolism for the next 24 hours.
