Collected Fitness Wisdom #18

Fat loss is all about caloric expenditure. We must burn more calories than we take in, and the real key to doing not aerobic training, which will burn calories while you are doing it, its anaerobic training, which burns calories while you are doing it AND increases the calories burned for hours afterwards.

In the case of weight training, if we build muscle and keep it, that burns calories forever more. Even when you sleep!

Here’s a quick little test for a personal trainer. Tell them you can only workout three days per week for 30 minutes each time, and that your primary goal is to lose weight.

If they suggest anything other than total body workouts (or maybe upper/lower splits) with big, compound bodyweight and free weight exercises, congratulations – you found a worthless trainer. Now turn around, and walk away. Better yet, run.

Coming from a guy who has been "crazy fit" to "pretty fat" - and every step in between - let me tell you:

I seriously doubt anything will reward you as much as your path to fitness and health. It has positive, profit-producing, happiness and fulfillment inducing IMPACT on, well .... everything.

I hope everyone realizes that those perfectly ripped fitness models they use in the infomercials didn't get their awesome bodies by using their pointless contraption they're selling... they got their perfect body because they are a professional fitness model, and they work their butt off with REAL full body workouts and lots of dietary discipline.
