Does Knowledge Burn Fat?
Like any other tool, it’s how you use it.
A recent article drew my attention, claiming to be sharing 51 Fast Fat Burning Tips.
Here’s some samples:
2. Crank it up early. Working out harder during the first half of your workout and taking it easier during the second burns up to 23 percent more fat than doing the opposite, according to a study from The College of New Jersey.
So focus on the Big Basic exercises (like a squat or pull up) with the most intensity.
The goal is to improve in the Basic exercises. Focus harder on the early lifts, because you will burn more fat later on.
5 to 7. Lift dumbbells … slowly. More muscle equals mega metabolism boost. Strength training can help you trim major fat, research reveals — and doing super-slow (versus normal speed) reps increases strength by 50 percent.
People with muscle burn more fat on a day to day basis. Lifting slowly helps during a portion of the exercise.
I only do the eccentric portion of the exercise at a slow pace. It helps to gain muscle.
But, for the true strength gains speed is a requirement. A high intensity, an exercise can activate TONS of High Threshold Motor Units.
My own intensity is one of Central Nervous System (CNS) proportions.
I seek to activate it. Nerves, neurons, blood vessels. Fueled by over 70 trace minerals in minute amounts, it is virtually only limited by willpower.
For strength and life, Passion is more than what you think you know.
14 & 15. Lift first, nix the rest. Doing strength training before cardio can torch more fat than cardio alone. And if you do one move after another without pausing, “you’ll see more gains in strength and muscle mass,” says Dr. Pierre Manfroy, M.D., consultant for the book “100 Ways to Supercharge Your Metabolism.”
Have you noticed certain people suffer from excess cardio syndrome? Bodies tend to atrophy when stressed by long slow steady cardio.
Don’t let it be an ego thing. Focus on the form, and feel the movement.
So get a warm up, hit the weights, then do cardio.
People would be amazed at the results from just a few sets and reps of the Basic exercises prior to cardio.
25. Have an omelet. Eating two eggs for breakfast while dieting will help you trim more weight and body fat than if you ate the same amount of calories noshing on a bagel, scientists say.
The Egg is a Vitamin and Mineral powerhouse.
These nutrients promote optimal function of all systems in the body. From the brain, nerves, and lean muscle…
Seek the Egg for nourishment.
48. Go mental. People who visualized themselves training a specific muscle boosted the strength in that muscle group, researchers found.
Going mental is so rewarding. It’s another way of daydreaming.
You imagine a scenario in which you achieve completeness.
I concentrate so deeply. My breathing. Feeling every moment of it.
Then I do it.
The brain is a most powerful tool for fitness.
