Wake Up Your Metabolism!

Wake Up Your Metabolism!

 

Your metabolism works around the clock 24/7 to keep your body functioning optimally and it requires fuel to keep running. Guess where that fuel comes from? Your body fat!  That’s right, your metabolism is fueled by fat.  So by increasing your metabolism, you’re telling your body to burn off MORE fat.

I know, I know.  That sounds easier said than done, but stick with me and you’ll discover how increasing your metabolism is MUCH easier than you think (no matter your age or genetics)…

But first, if you’ve been doing cardio workouts to try and slim down, I have some bad news for you…

Steady-state cardio (like jogging or doing the elliptical) increases the production of a stress hormone called cortisol.  Cortisol causes weight gain and makes it more difficult to burn off stubborn belly fat.  That’s why no matter how much cardio you do, you always hit a plateau eventually.

Even worse, too much cardio accelerates aging!  When you put your body under prolonged stress, you start producing free-radicals, which damages your cells and causes inflammation…and inflammation is what makes you OLD.  Yikes!

Now here’s the good news: science has proven that the most effective way to increase your metabolism is by doing short bursts of high-intensity exercises.  This type of exercise triggers a potent fat-burning effect, known as the “afterburn”, which skyrockets your metabolism and boosts your fat-burn for up to 48 hours after your workout is over.

I call this scientifically-proven method metabolic training. Don’t worry, it’s not as technical as it sounds.  Let me explain…

Metabolic training involves specific exercises that activate more of your muscle fibers, which creates a bigger metabolic boost, demanding more fat to be burned for fuel—so you can burn off the flab that’s covering up your abs and KEEP it off.

There’s even more good news. Metabolic training stimulates your youth-enhancing hormones so you can slough away old, dead cells — making you look and feel younger.  Yes, it’s the Holy Grail of all workouts! Look, getting lean, defined abs is easy once you know how to trigger the right hormones in your body (and stop the production of the bad hormones that are making you fat and old).
