5 Scientic Fat Loss Secrets

Exercise science and research has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years’, and has confirmed some key fat loss secrets.

Fact: Fat loss programs that require endless hours of long, slow, boring cardio exercises will rarely help you achieve your fat loss goals and can in fact lead to over use injuries. A recent research study done in Australia showed that only interval training helped subjects burn belly fat during a 15-week fat loss study. Plus, the interval training group trained for only half the time of the slow, boring cardio group.

FACT: The fat loss workouts you read about in years’ past are based on out-of-date exercise science. You just don't have to spend an hour, or more, in the gym everyday doing strength training for different "body parts", and then following that up with a 45 minutes to an hour of slow boring cardio. It’s a waste of time, and they don’t work as well as 3 short 20-30 minute more intense exercise sessions.

FACT: Shorter more intense exercise sessions allow you start losing more fat, while building and maintaining lean muscle. And science has confirmed that every added pound of lean muscle burns an additional 35-50 calories per day. So an additional 10 pounds of lean muscle would burn 500 more calories per day. This would enable you to burn more body fat all day long, even while you’re sleeping.

FACT: Traditional fat burning exercise programs typically don't even mention strength training workouts in their instructions because most trainers and clients don't understand how strength training will help fat loss. However, if you want to maximize your metabolism, lose fat, get defined arms, and a flat lean stomach you must include strength training in your fat loss workout exercises.

FACT: More advanced, modern fat burning and strength training methods, will help you burn more calories and more belly fat in and out of the gym. With combined short strength training and interval cardio exercises, you will skyrocket your post-workout metabolism allowing you to burn more belly fat, and excess body fat, quickly become leaner, healthier, and more fit than you ever felt possible.

The research simply does not lie, and these are the bottom line facts. Follow the above guidelines and revise you exercise program to start achieving outstanding fat loss, fitness, and health benefits in the shortest time possible.
