I was just reviewing a big file of all the new exercise, diet, and research proven fat burning tips I wrote down for 2009, and I wanted to share 5 BIGGIES that can help your clients get more results AND make your awesome workers even better.
So here we go:
#5 – Recent research shows shuttle-running is tougher than running intervals in a straight line…
…so if you want to burn fat faster than ever, make sure you incorporate old-school shuttle runs (i.e. classic suicide type drills) into your fat burning interval programs.
#4 – Use a food log.
“According to Men’s Health (Feb 2009, p 38), keeping a food log helped subjects lose 3.5 more pounds than subjects that didn’t keep the log.”
#3 – Hit a personal best in each workout.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. There are a few reasons you need to do this:
a) First of all, everyone loves progress, and if you can achieve a personal record in each workout (i.e. could be # of pushups, plank time, etc.), then you will feel a HUGE sense of accomplishment.
b) More personal bests = more results. Plain and simple.
c) You will get addicted to the workouts, and always want to come back for more attempts at breaking records.
“According to Men’s Health magazine, (Dec, 2009), beginners who work with trainers get more results than beginners who workout by themselves”. Guaranteed.
I promise you that it will elevate your motivation and inspire you to reach your fat loss goals.
Here’s the first motivational quote you can read tomorrow morning:
“Be loud and proud of the healthy changes you are making in your life. There are many more folks secretly wishing someone will take charge and be a healthy role model for them. It might not happen overnight, but if you continue to lead by healthy example – without preaching or being condescending – you can build an entourage that will help you reach the next level.” – Craig Ballantyne
Those are 5 unique tips to help you lose fat.
