Here you are again. You want to lose some weight and you will start a workout routine. But, before you start, ask yourself why did you fail in the past? Was it to hard? Are you doomed by genetics? My guess is that you probably failed because you complicated easy stuff.
Getting in shape is not as hard as you might think it is. You only need 5 to 10 minutes a day to get fast results. Here are some tips for starting a simple but effective cardio routine…
#1. – It should fit your busy schedule.
The only way to get long-term results is with consistency. Research demonstrates that a short high-intensity workout routine motivates consistency in people. If you have 5 to 10 minutes a day you can get in shape very fast. So, “a busy schedule” is out of your list of excuses.
Please don’t assume that because the routine lasts 5 to 10 minutes it is not effective. If you perform it correctly, you will be exhausted after every session.
#2. – It should help you burn calories even when you are not working out.
A good cardio routine should help you increase your metabolism. During a regular workout routine you will only burn a few hundred calories. On the other hand, if you increase your metabolism you will burn thousands of calories during the day.
#3. – A good routine should built up your muscle mass.
Maybe you won’t believe this but a regular low-intensity cardio session can actually make you gain weight. How?
When you perform low-intensity cardio you lose muscle mass, and that lowers your metabolism. It will also increase your hunger cravings. Low metabolism + hunger cravings = weight gain. So, now you understand why it is so hard to stay in shape.
On the other hand short high-intensity cardio routines will help you build muscle mass, and as a result, your metabolism will increase. That means that you will burn calories all day long, even when you are not working out.
That’s why some guys eat all day long without gaining any extra weight, the have fast metabolisms.
I lost 20 kilograms of weight, 10 of them in one month. So I know this stuff works. You need to remember that in the fitness arena, simple works, complicated fails. The problem with most fitness programs is that they over-complicate simple stuff. That’s why most people lose motivation and quit.
Checkout my friend’s Mike Chang course I highly recommend it. I’ve actually worked out with Mike before, and his workouts are the real deal. If you want a lean physique with a tastefully muscular six pack then this course is a must-have.
