Another day and more awesome fat loss results are coming out of SOS!, So in the gym people WASTE so much time. You may get to the gym 3-4 times a week for just one hour. You need to MAXIMISE your time the main difference with strength training, muscle building training and fat loss is how rest periods vary. Now I’m guessing over 70% of you who are reading this email would like to drop body fat.
So today’s top tip has to do with rest periods.
You need to keep rest to a MINIMUM for fat loss.
Rest is important, especially for STRENGTH TRAINING.
The nervous system takes unto 5 x longer to recover than the muscular system so YES for strength training rest periods do need to be longer.
But you want fat loss right?
So having a clear, concise GOAL and training towards that goal is KEY.
But so many people get CONFUSED.
For fat loss training people take far too much rest.
If you want to drop body fat lift weights and keep rests to a minimum.
Now don’t take this the wrong way.
Taking short rest does not mean RUSH your exercises.
Strength exercises should be done using controlled tempos.
You must focus 100% on quality and executing the movements effectively.
Then don’t waste time, get onto the next exercise.
After all for fat loss you should be following a workout.
You should have a session plan.
A structured and tailored program designed for YOU.
Not some generic fitness plan from women’s fitness magazine or some website.
So whether your doing:
- Density Training.
- German Body Composition Training.
Keeping rest periods short:
- burns more calories.
- causes more metabolic effects.
- boosts the metabolism far more.
- increases your cardiovascular fitness.
That’s why in the body comp sessions we are now running in my private facility we are doing density training and it’s tough. So there we have it, more reasons to get in the gym and work hard
