Minimal fitness

No time to post properly just now but I wanted to briefly mention a study I spotted this morning done at Heriot Watt university here in Edinburgh.

Three 10 minute exercise sessions a week of very easy cycling with a couple of all out sprints thrown in had significant impacts on insulin sensitivity and vo2 max. That is 10 mins including warm up and cool down.

The threshold for an effect from intervals gets lower and lower....

Of course I reckon they might well get a similar effect from an intense set of resistance exercise. Still tapping into the glycogen and all the same pathways and signals.

Everyone can do a few hard efforts each week and get benefit.

A new research confirms that fitness states durability better that fatness. Scientists followed the exercise and loss of life rates of parents old than 60.

Folks, it doesn't matter what workout you do it's really possible to LOSE 12 inches in 12 workouts with the "Fat Loss Zone" secret. Yep it works with cardio, Bootcamp, Weight lifting, Zumba, P90x, Insanity, Power 90, gym workouts, cardio classes, cycling, jogging, hiking, home workout videos ... anything folks, YES Anything!  After 10 years as a Personal Trainer and owner of Firm Body Boot Camp, the #1 Fat Loss Gym in the Country I learned the biggest mistake to fat loss is working out TOO HARD, and not in the your exact "Fat Loss Zone" zone causing your body lose muscle, slow down metabolism and store more body fat on your stomach, arms, chin and buns. I have mastered the art of Fat Loss and will teach you my #1 secret for FREE!



             If you're not getting results it's because 

        you are not using the 
"Fat Loss Zone" secret.



     Most people think working out extremely hard, sweat a ton and push yourself until you almost puke will deliver big results. They also think doing alot of cardio will shape, firm, tone the body and get them to lose weight. This is far from the truth, If you do any exercise TOO HARD your losing muscle ... NOT Body Fat.
