Interval Training – Fast Fat Loss

When it comes to losing weight, interval training is an excellent approach which produces great results. However, small changes in your training routine can have big effects, and it is important to maximize your time spent in the gym. What tips and techniques can you utilize to see dramatic weight loss with your interval training efforts? Here is a short list of great ideas, which will enhance your workouts on a day to day basis.

First, if you don’t know what interval training is, it is simply a type of workout, which blends high-intensity exercise with less intense training. These are paired in sets, and the sprint intervals are where you push yourself to the limit. These are usually much shorter in duration, and can be as little as 15 seconds long. An example of a sprint interval is running at full speed for 30 seconds, or doing an uphill climb on a stationary bike for 10 minutes. This is followed by a rest interval, in which you are still working out, just at a much lower level. This allows your body to recover from the load placed upon it during the high-intensity exercise. An example would be jogging after running at full speed. The amount of rest time is determined by your level of fitness, and the less time spent in the rest interval, the more effective your workout will be.

Why is breakfast is an important meal

Breakfast has long been pointed to by many as being the most important meal of the day. But is this just a myth passed down through the ages, or is there actual scientific verification for the statement that breakfast is important.

To understand more about this subject, it is good to realize what breakfast actually is. Breakfast is the meal which ‘breaks the fast’ which the body has experienced over night. A fast is a time when we give our body a rest from eating. In some cultures, people fast regularly to be sure that their bodies get a break, but night time (and sleeping) are the natural times for the body to do this. It’s not something that we have to build into our lifestyle! The first meal after that sleeping is usually, then, a meal which is taken fairly early in the morning and before we begin our day’s activities. It sets the scene for the body of what it is now expected to do. It kick starts, if you like, the metabolism. It signals the body to get ready for a new day.

Tom Venuto's Holiday Fitness Challenge To You For 2010

Tom Venuto’s Holiday Fitness Challenge To You For 2010

Every year as Thanksgiving gets closer, you’ve probably seen the depressing reports: “Most people gain between 5 and 10 pounds of body fat in the six weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.” I’m not sure if this worries you or not, but a lot of people are terrified about getting fatter in the next two months. They anticipate the workouts falling by the wayside and the holiday food calling out to them irresistibly, defeating even the strongest willpower. There’s good news and bad news about this.

Good news: According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the average amount gained is much more modest – just over a pound.

Bad news: A study by the National Institutes of Health found that this seasonal weight gain – even just a pound – is the kind of weight gain that most people don’t lose when the holidays are over; it simply adds to the weight creep that sneaks up on you as you get older.

People often wonder how it’s possible to wake up one morning at age 40 or 45 and “suddenly” they’re 30 pounds fatter – or more – than they were in college. Mystery solved. Continue reading Tom Venuto's Holiday Fitness Challenge To You For 2010

Accelerate Fat Burning

Accelerate Fat Burning

Increase metabolism with super-sets for extra fat burning and blasting. Doing super-sets will increase the rate at which you can burn calories by as much as 13 %. Super-sets are a series of exercises done back to back, or one after the other with no rest period in between.  If done properly this exercise sequence can keep your body burning calories up to 16 hours later.

Do Squat Jumps over a 12 inch step with a T Push Up.

Do them each for 30 seconds one after the other then rest 1 minute and repeat 3-4 units

In this article I will give you a simple and easy to follow methods on how to accelerate fat burning.

Drink Lots of Water

You have probably heard it a million times that drinking water is very important. Water has multitudes of benefits and it also increases the muscle build up in the body and your overall appearance.

Water Increases your strength and performance in the gym

Study has shown that dehydration, even the slightest amount of it can cause a decrease in your strength and physical performance greatly. Actually a 3% drop in your body’s water content will lead to a 15-20% decrease in the muscle contractions. When undergoing intense training sessions, it is very important that your strength and energy levels are very high.

Water Helps in Injury Prevention

When you train hard in the gym over a long period using whatever equipment available, stress can be put on your joints and connecting tissues. Water helps fight and alleviate this by lubricating the joints for easy movement and for the formation of a protective layer around them.

Water Increases Fat Burning Metabolism

The liver has one of the roles of metabolizing fat in the body. The liver also helps the kidney flush out toxic substances through urine. When you decrease your water intake, this causes the liver and kidney to work extra hard to clear this out and it can be of course a strain to them. A decrease in water will cause a decrease in fat burning.

Super Setting Workouts

Using super sets in a workout is beneficial in accelerating fat burning. If you are ready for change then super-sets will do it for you alongside with plenty of water.

A good friend of mine, Tom Venuto, has offered to give away a free copy
of his best-selling book The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for
Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and
Maintaining Your Perfect Weight
at This book swept Amazon.com’s best sellers
list when it was released last year in hard cover format and has already helped
tens of thousands of people in their struggle with bodyfat. This book is very
unique because it’s not a diet or even a training book per se. It’s actually received
its greatest acclaim and positive reviews as a book about the psychological and
emotional aspects of fat loss.

One of the major theme’s in the book is that as a culture seeking a
solution for fat loss, we’ve been asking the wrong questions. We’re
accustomed to asking questions like “What nutrition or training program
should I follow?” – but this is not the most important question. The
real question that you should be asking is:

“What makes me follow my program?” And, conversely, “What makes me quit
my program so easily?”

The Body Fat Solution offers THE solution to finding those answers out
for yourself. After such great success, The Body Fat Solution was just
released in paperback, too, and Tom is willing to give a paperback copy
to one of my lucky readers. The best part is that it’s painfully simple
to enter the contest.

Here’s what you need to do in order to enter-

The Body Fat Solution, national bestseller

1) Leave a comment below, telling me why you should be selected as the
winner.

Ideas: Maybe you need a better education about fat loss. Or, you’ve
tried to lose weight and failed many times before. You could be an
emotional eater, struggle with your self image, or have never had the
motivation to see your goals through to the finish. Even if you’re
already in great shape, you may have a good enough reason to win this
book. Tell me about it.

(500 words or less, please. And longer comments aren’t necessarily
better. I’m looking for quality.)

This contest is a way for me to give back to my loyal readers and
subscribers. If you’re not on my mailing list, then you are not eligible
to enter. If you’d like to sign-up for the mailing list, then visit the
Newsletter Sign-up Page. Subscribers receive a few benefits that regular
visitors don’t (such as being eligible for contests like this one).
Contest Rules

The Prize:

1 autographed copy of The Body Fat Solution (paperback) by Tom Venuto.
To my knowledge, the only difference besides the actual binding is that
the paperback has an extra appendix with fat burning meals plans that
were not included in the hard cover. (note: there are no customer
reviews yet because it was just released this week. If you’d like to
read some reviews about the book, check out The Body Fat Solution (hard
cover version).

Contest Deadline:

January 14 at midnight PST.

Choosing a Winner:

One winner will be chosen by executive decision.

Eligibility:

You are eligible – yes you. This prize is only available to residents of
the 48 contiguous states. (If you don’t live in the U.S. and you win,
I’ll forward you a download link for Burn The Fat, Feed the Muscle
instead, and another winner will be chosen to receive the paperback
book).

*Update: Tom has just informed me that he would be happy to ship the
book anywhere in the world – that makes EVERYONE eligible to enter. If
you don’t live in the 48 contiguous States, then you will have a choice
of either receiving the Body Fat Solution paperback book or the Burn The
Fat, Feed The Muscle ebook
.

Other Notes:

-Remember to use your primary email address in the comment board. If you
don’t, we won’t have a way to contact you for your shipping address.

-One comment per entrant, please.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Even if you don’t win the prize, you can still take action today to
achieve your fat loss goals. There are mountains of literature on the
subject, including some archived articles on my blog. And with the cost
of paperback books, you can purchase a copy of The Body Fat Solution for
a very meager investment.

However, if you want something a bit more, something that will guarantee
you lose fat permanently and naturally, then listen up. If you’re
serious about fat loss, and want to put in the time to maximize your
results, and if detail-oriented hard work is right up your alley, then
you’re probably ready for the advanced techniques contained within Burn
The Fat, Feed The Muscle (BFFM)
at http://budurl.com/tomvenuto. Whereas
The Body Fat Solution is more geared towards people who struggle with
compliance to a fat loss program, BFFM is catered to a more serious type
of person who is willing to put in the work to achieve the results
they’re seeking after.

BFFM was designed to be a complete and definitive guide to nutrition for
fat loss, based on the bodybuilding / fitness / figure method of eating.
The majority of BFFM is devoted to nutrition, with ancillary chapters on
setting goals effectively, weight training, and cardio. In my opinion,
BFFM is where Tom Venuto really -spills it- and teaches everything he
knows about burning fat and building muscle. It’s the most comprehensive
resource I’ve encountered on the subject. If you’d like to learn more
about Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle system, visit the official site at
Burn The Fat , Or, you can visit Tom’s fat loss support
community at Burnthefatinnercircle, where members -burn
the fat together- using the BFFM system.

Good luck and thanks for your participation. I look forward to hearing
from you!

Nuts – Do They Work For Fat Loss

Due to the constant advancement of science and technology, new and new facts related to health and fitness is coming into the limelight. One of the recent and important facts is that nuts can aid in fat loss to a great extent. There are several clinical studies that have proven this fact and there are several studies that are still working on this aspect.

Research Proves that Nuts can lead to Weight Loss

One of the premier institutions, Harvard University has conducted several research based clinical studies that show that different types of nuts including peanuts can be part of a healthy diet and greatly help men and women in fat loss. In December 1999, a study was published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which outlined the fact that diets consisting of high amount of monounsaturated fat in the form of peanuts or even peanut butter and olive oil has a far superior effect on fat loss vis-à-vis low-fat diets.

The classification of peanuts in the USDA Food Guide Pyramid is in the category of high protein diet. It has also been mentioned in the same category as fish, meat, poultry, eggs, and dry beans. The truth is that peanut is a plant-based protein and hence it doesn’t have any cholesterol unlike in animal-based proteins. In fact, peanuts contain a higher percentage of good un-saturated fats vis-à-vis saturated fats and hence they are shown at the bottom of Vegetarian and Mediterranean Food Guide Pyramids.

Bodyblades Are Good For Core Strength

Bodyblades are one of the most under used and beneficial core power
training tool ever designed. It is an innovative workout system which
leads to quick and effective muscle strengthening, power development,
core stabilization and toning.

What is a Bodyblade?

Bodyblade is an exercise device which is lightweight, durable,
multifunctional and takes up very little space to store. The tool is so
compact that it can easily fit inside the closet, under the bed and
dozens of other places where the conventional weights and machines fail
to go. It is ready to use and can be used anywhere and at anytime,
requires no adjustments, bands or weights.

Bodyblade is an exercise stick that somewhat resembles a double-sided
sword. The handle in the middle is quite comfortable, and easy to work
with.

What does a Bodyblade do?

Exercises are executed by gripping the center of the exercise blade and
shaking it back and forth. The Bodyblade can oscillate back and forth in
various directions and angles to train different body parts. It’s an
extremely good tool to get an effective muscle sculpting workout within
a short span of time, if used properly. This device is very strong and
sturdy and can be used for a longer period of time.

Bodyblade has several unique features which definitely make it different
compared to the other exercise equipment available. There really isn’t
any other type of equipment that is like the Bodyblade. Most other
systems work on the principle of the user attempting to lift a weighted
item or stretch an elastic band. Bodyblade uses the principles of
inertia to motivate the muscles and make them stronger. With Bodyblade
there is an absence of weights or elastic bands that can break. The
Bodyblade, works on the opposite principle: Once the ends begin to move,
inertia keeps them in motion and then it’s up to you to resist it. The
intensity and the acceleration of the movement can be controlled by you,
which make it safer and more effective than any other equipment. The
risk of damage through overexertion is much less. All this is made
possible due to the inertial exercise principles and the patented
technology built into every Bodyblade. Continue reading Bodyblades Are Good For Core Strength
