So you may have seen on Facebook…
One of the members who last week tested, came in with some tremendous results
(over 4kg of body fat lost and increased fitness)
Gains they wanted badly to not only look and feel better, but to hopefully get them doing an amateur triathlon in the future
So training wise what did we/he do to achieve this?
Based on our experience what was put into place to drive such a great change?
No long drawn out cardio
That wouldn’t cut the mustard remotely!
In fact it would be mindless
Instead, short, very intense bouts of exercise
Using exercises which recruited large amounts of the body
Structured in a way for optimal effect
And through these surges of activity
Turning on the pathways which ramp up fitness
(something very fancy called PGC-1α)
Guess how long the main session took?
21 minutes (of which 7 minutes max was work)
Through the above fitness work, the high oxygen demand = opportunity to burn a lot of fat
In the quest to recover, the body consumed excess oxygen after the sessions for hours on end
To fuel this, fat was took up and burned by the body
This is the biproduct of how the fitness work was structured and executed
Its not anything new, but knowing how to structure sessions for best effect is an art
(and that takes experience and know how)
So unless you have a lot of time on your hands…
Don’t mind being on a treadmill for 45 minutes looking in the mirror…
And are ok with finishing in a state or boredom
Then this method is the one for you
Oh and one other thing
That nutrition thing we talk about…
The right amount TOTAL amount of calories were consumed, at the right TIMES, from the right TYPES of food
Was this flawless?
No, unless the Krispy Krèmes they consumed one weekend don’t count, but 90% of it was inline with the above
Did I just speak about dozens of things?
Did I tell things which were super complex?
Nope, we cut out the crap and focused on these BIG things to actually get big results
Simplicity is a powerful art
