What if I told you that you could preserve up to 19% of your lean muscle while making just a few small tweaks to your workouts…
Well, today is your lucky day.
Years ago, I stopped doing all the long slow cardio nonsense and as soon as I did, I was finally able to transform my body.
<——— Exciting Day!
And truth be told, even though I stopped traditional cardio, I was still in the best cardio shape of my life.
Not only that, but I was burning more fat than ever before and was adding and preserving hard earned lean muscle.
In a recent study, researchers found that the combination of diet and traditional cardio caused participants to lose up to 22% of their lean muscle.
In comparison, participants who combined diet and resistance training saw 97% fat loss and only 3% lean muscle loss.
That’s a 19% difference!
Yes, you can lose up to 19% more lean muscle when doing traditional cardio workouts… Not good…
What this tells us is that when we do the proper exercises, we not only burn more fat but we can also easily maintain and add lean muscle.
I have shared this before, but look at a sprinter compared to a marathon runner. A sprinter, who engages in lots of resistance training and proper cardio workouts, is easily able to burn fat and keep their lean muscle.
Marathon runners and traditional cardio users on the other hand, burn a ton of lean muscle during their workouts making it nearly impossible to get the physique they want.
Now here’s the good news… As I said earlier, you can still do cardio and be in great cardio shape IF you do the right exercises and workouts. I stayed in tip-top basketball shape throughout my college playing career while never doing an ounce of “cardio”.
Here is the key: Focus on short, intense bursts… then rest and repeat.
Research shows us that these kinds of workouts are what allow the body to burn fat more easily and manipulate important hormones.
What these workouts also do is keep cortisol levels LOW. Cortisol is a fat storing hormone, something that is present during long bouts of cardio and exercise.
When doing short, intense bursts of exercise, not only are you allowing your body to produce GH and testosterone, you are also keeping cortisol to a minimum!
Listen, I love doing cardio… I mean I did create Superhero Sprints and all.
Yet realize that when it comes to cardio there is a better way to go than the traditional jogs on the treadmill or long rides on the elliptical.
The best and easiest way to get your cardio done while replacing traditional long cardio is by adding in a short finisher at the end of your resistance training workout.
For example, instead of doing 30 minutes on the treadmill, do this instead and see far better results:
WORKOUT: Complete at many rounds as possible of the exercises below in 4-minutes, only resting when needed:
- Burpees: 5 reps
- Squat Jumps: 5 reps
- Sprints in Place: 20 seconds
- Squat Hold: 10 seconds
Repeat as many rounds as you can in the 4-minutes. After a solid 25-30 minute resistance training workout, then this… You are going to be spent…
That is really all there is to it… Properly placing high intensity exercises into a short 4-8 minute circuit so you can start doubling your fat burn at the end of your workout.
