Here is wishing a very Happy New Year and all the best for working out and keeping fit in 2016. Set the right fitness goals this year and have a great and a healthy year!
Remember, getting results is what matters with exercise right? Any exercise will produce results, but you want to get the RIGHT results.
Infact traditional, very long, boring cardio workouts like running, cycling, spinning or aerobics for prolonged periods of time can actually damage your brain, heart, lungs and metabolism, making you sicker, fatter, older and more tired!
1. Slows down your Metabolism…
Intelligent movements and moderate exercise naturally enhances your metabolism by pushing it just enough to adapt to make it stronger. However, not too much that it fights back, making you a better fat burner, toning your muscles and giving you a huge lift in energy.
Exercising for too long (which a lot of people do regularly) can actually cause major metabolic damage that makes you get fatter. If you have ever run, cycled or done aerobics for 45-60 minutes or more only to get poor results, you will soon realize your mistake!
Why does this happen? When you push too long and too hard, your metabolism fights back… driving up your appetite, bringing down your energy and slowing your metabolism to low levels, leaving you more unfit, bulkier and more frustrated day by day.
2. Wrinkles You from the Inside Out…
Moderate exercise increases your body’s ability to produce antioxidants, like the powerful glutathione, which hunts down and neutralizes excess free radicals, leaving your skin smooth, protecting your organs and boosting your cellular health.
Excessive exercise could rust your body from the inside out resulting in wrinkled, saggy skin, a damaged brain, a weak heart and low energy.
All types of exercise causes your body to release tiny molecules called free radicals. But too much exercise or the wrong kind unleashes a tidal wave of these molecules that overwhelms your body, damaging your most sensitive cells, especially your skin, heart and brain.
Damages Your Bones, Muscles and Joints…
Excessive faulty cardio workouts release an overload of cortisol (the stress hormone), which triggers fat accumulation on your belly. Not only that, it also wears out your tissues, weakens your bones, destroys muscle and damages your joints.
Dramatically Increases Risk for Disease…
Inflammation is a key component of your immune system, helping your body to protect and repair itself. However, too much inflammation is extremely dangerous, putting you at risk of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Typical long-duration exercise damages your body so much that a fiery inferno of inflammation spreads, causing more damage multiplying your risk of developing those deadly, damaging diseases.
Weakens Immune System, Making You Sick…
Shorter, smarter workouts boost levels of glutamine, an essential amino acid that helps to bulletproof your immune system against stubborn, nasty bugs and bacteria.A strong immune system also means a smart immune system, providing protection against developing auto-immune disease that attack your own body like the thyroid, joints and brain.
Having a proper functioning immune system is critical to staying healthy, especially as you age and become vulnerable to sickness and disease. That is where chronic cardio can really sabotage your health. Too much of the wrong exercises weaken your immune system, making you vulnerable to colds, viruses, bacteria and other bugs that may be lurking in or attacking your body. It can also turn your body against itself, causing auto-immune diseases.
So don’t leave your health to chance. Instead unlike traditional exercise it actually delivers more results in less time. It’s all about working smarter, not harder. For example:
1 Each sequence of 45-second movements makes up just 15 minutes of total workout time. The movements are carefully sequenced in a way that makes the workout fun!
2 Whether you are a man or woman, young or old, the hormonal soup that’s unleashed by this “intelligent” workout will automatically re-shape your body to be much more attractive. Women get more of that curved hourglass shape with a more narrow waist and more attractive hips. And men more of that lean, powerful v-shape with a broader chest and back, and narrower waist.
3 You’ll flood your body and brain with a powerful cocktail of anti-aging biochemicals that combat inflammation and oxidative stress — two forces that dramatically accelerate aging.
4 Men relish the surge in testosterone that improves mood and builds muscle.
5 And women enjoy a rush of HGH, the skin-tightening, muscle-toning, fat-burning hormone of our youth.
So WORKOUT SMART AND NOT HARD!
