How to Tell If Your Fitness Plan Is Cheating You
If you've been trying to lose stubborn body fat but haven't been able to - despite exercising - it could be possible that you've been cheated. What many exercise programs won't tell you is that not all methods of exercising will burn fat quickly.
So if you've been working out, but you look in the mirror and still see problem areas, there's a good chance that it's not your fault.
Don't beat yourself up mentally if you've been giving it your all but your exercise program has been holding out on you.
One of the main areas where both men and women gain fat is in the stomach.
We all have a dozen names that we call this area - including muffin top, spare tire, and Santa belly.
But you don't have to put up with this. If your exercise program hasn't given you the results that you want, it's time to fire it and do something that does work.
What doesn't work are those weird diets that go along with exercise programs.
If you have to eat unpronounceable food or you have to avoid whole food groups in the hopes of losing fat, then something isn't right.
In fact, studies have shown that eating fad diets or having a meal plan where you don't consume enough calories actually causes your body to work against you.
Instead of working to lose fat, it shuts down fat loss. If you have to spend crippling amounts of time on repetitions, then something's not right. Losing fat doesn't take hours.
It only takes an exercise routine of a few minutes.
The difference is the right way of exercising and that's what bodyweight training is.
You get benefits of building muscle at the same time that you're losing the fat you always wanted to lose.
There are no sweat-drenching, hour upon hour cycles of cardio that you have to do. No bulky machines.
You can use simple things like gymnastic rings to lose the fat you've wanted to lose when you're following a bodyweight training routine.
Bodyweight training is an intense way to workout that not only loses unwanted fat, but it also builds a flat stomach and a firm butt.
If you want to lose fat using natural bodyweight training methods, then you can use a program like Body Ripped.
This one is especially helpful for women. It gets you started off with the first phase by giving you a fat loss foundation.
In the second phase, you'll get a three-week body change guide.
In the third phase, you'll be able to see how your body has transformed.
You can do bodyweight training on your own, but it's always best to get some guidance so that you can make sure you're not missing anything that helps you reach your goal faster.
