How to Get the Body You Want for the Summer, and Forever
As the summer quickly approaches, many individuals are thinking the same thing. What is the best way to lose weight before beach season begins? Should I start eating less? Do I have to workout for 2 hours per day? There are a few requirements that an individual must follow to achieve ultimate success in their weight loss efforts. We, here at aNF, are going to help you on your way to not only getting ready for summer, but making sure it becomes a complete lifestyle change.
The first part of losing weight is having the understanding that eating less does not necessarily turn into fat burning. Yes, it will help in weight loss, but because the body has an internal gauge that wants to stay at the same weight, the metabolism will actually slow down to make up for it. The body will also be burning off muscle fibers due to the lack of caloric intake. The problem is not how much we eat, it’s what we eat. There are fat loss plans that require eating 2900 calories per day with a lot of eggs, fish, chicken, along with fruits and vegetables. It will also help you be more alert during your workouts. Utilizing your aNF food tracker and meal prepping on Sundays will become that much more important.
The second thing to understand is that it is unnecessary to workout for a very long time each day. There are many great workouts that can be done in less than 30 minutes. The keys lie in the PØWR-FSE sequences. One exercise followed by another without rest is a key to elevating the heart rate and burning more calories. Not only does it increase the intensity of the workout, but it also is extremely efficient for those who have difficult work schedules. Don’t waste anytime doing 10 exercises working the same muscle group when it could have been done with 4 exercises without rest. This is something that can be achieved by following the aNF PØWR-FSE programming method. Targeting larger muscle groups with limited rest periods are crucial towards workout efficiency and getting results.
The third portion is understanding how to go about doing a cardio session. When walking into a gym, most people tend to flock to a cardio machine. It is something that comes natural to most and it’s not a scary place like the free weight area. As the saying goes, in order to have success, you must step out of your comfort zone. Strength training is just as important as cardio sessions are in a weight loss program. Without strengthening the muscles, it is impossible to attain a tighter physique. It will also help when it comes to yard work, picking up kids at a barbecue, and just overall fitness levels. Intertwining cardio sessions with strength training will ultimately increase your overall ability and increase total body efficiency.
Just remember the three keys to success here. Eat sufficiently, but healthy. Make workouts more efficient by using the PØWR-FSE method, and work in your cardio with strength training.
