Cardio is not the fastest way to Lose weight

      It’s an interesting phenomena that when you come into the gym, where do you see all the overweight people? Walking on the treadmills. When you come in the gym a year later if the same people are on the treadmills you can be pretty certain they are still the same “overweight” people. 

      Low intensity cardio in your “fat burning” workout is not effective for fat burning. Number one, we need to build muscle to raise our metabolism. How do we do that. With strength training, not traditional cardio. Also where do we burn body fat, in the muscles that are actually working in an exercise. So the more muscles that are involved in an exercise or in a “whole body” workout. Now how do you fire up the cardio vascular system, burn more body fat during your workout and way more body fat after your workout. Whole body workouts, can burn you more calories in twenty-minutes than 5 hours of low intensity treadmill walking in your fat burning zone. You will burn more calories for the next 24-36 hours after this workout. Plus you will be building lean, fat burning muscle and lose weight in 2 weeks. This provides what we would call maximum muscle building with maximum metabolic impact.
