Getting Lean in Just 5 Minutes a Day

Fitness - Getting Lean in Just 5 Minutes a Day

Ever get tired of those long workouts? Does walking on the treadmill seem like it is never going to end, day in and day out? It’s always about working smarter with anything in life. We hear about doing shorter duration workouts and how they can be as impactful as the longer ones. The studies are out now about the impact of duration of exercise. The time most needed to create any form of fat loss impact is is 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. This is like going outside and taking a power walk, or getting on the treadmill. Then the other health statistics are out there to help you burn the fat at a much higher and faster rate. The guidelines for this style of training can be accomplished in only 75 minutes per week to get the same of even better results. Really? Sign me up for that!

Listen, many in the fitness community call this the HIIT style of training. The reality is that this new researched style is proven in studies to burn fat like a furnace. The key to melting the fat away in just 5 minutes a day is a great discovery by a Dr. Tabata in Japan. He discovered through research that we could actually produce a greater affect on our metabolism with the surge-style of workouts than longer duration sessions. Here is how it works. You can do this with just your bodyweight, dumbbells, bands, kettle bells, etc. The idea is to use your entire body. Dr Tabata found that this style of training is the most efficient way to burn fat and build lean muscle.

Example:

Treadmill 
Sprint for 20 seconds, jog 10 seconds, repeat 8 times

Row Machine 
Row maximum for 20 seconds, moderate for 10, repeat 8 times

Bike 
Pedal like you are racing 20 seconds, moderate 10 seconds, repeat 8 times

Get the idea? You can use any form of exercise and follow this intensity interval pattern to get amazing results

My challenge is to attempt this for 30 days and check your results. You will be amazed at the time that you have saved, and the body that you have transformed for empowering your health.
