Hard body, fat loss, and cardiovascular health all in one

See also

A breakthrough genre has arrived in fitness methodology. Basically it means shorter but more intense exercise that integrates resistance and cardiovascular training.

The reason it is not catching fire is that, well, you know how some people are change-resistant? Certainly not you and me, but all those other people.

Something everybody needs to remember: If your workout is easy, you might as well not bother.

Likewise, if you ride a treadmill or elliptical and are able to read a magazine, you might as well not bother. Instead you need to get with the revolution so you save time and get real results.

Will you have to sweat? Of course. When is the last time you were dripping sweat and out-of-breath? You know what that feels like? It's called doing something.

Revolt

Does not matter if you are new to fitness or have been around forever. If you have not achieved the body you want, you are probably hating the crummy results you get from all the time you spend doing cardio.

I do not want to make it sound like I despise cardiovascular training.

What I despise is the time wasted doing old world cardio that does not work and is even counterproductive at times.

I believe that Hell must be treadmills and elliptical machines every day. It might even say that in the Bible.

Cardio as we do it, is counterproductive. Go into the cardio area in any gym, and look at the bodies on the machines. The people who are there all the time are usually fat or borderline emaciated. I think the cardio room may be toxic to appearance.

I should add that the bellies jiggling on the cardio machines probably also have terrible eating habits. You actually have to work at looking that way, like going out of your way to buy stupid food.

You can not exercise your way around stupid eating. Look at the fatties in any gym.

My quick and dirty summation of cardio is that it needs to be done, but not the old way, which means not for 30 to 60 minutes per day on a machine.

New world workouts

I've done a lot of articles about integrating cardiovascular and resistance training. I do not believe there is anything that works as well and as quickly as this training genre.

And you can do this and be done in less than a half-hour. And you can do it at home without any equipment, but the results tick up measurably if you add weight or bands or something for resistance.

This type of training does it all.

Trouble is it takes a good deal of convincing to get people to try this whether they are new or have been going to the gym for a long time. Perhaps the seasoned veterans are the least likely to change anything. I don't know what to do about that except wish them contentment when they look into a mirror.

Rather than me trying to convince you to try this workout, you can decide for yourself by watching and reading what some other folks have to say.

There is an article on my national page that contains links to videos and all kinds of free stuff from experts. I hope you will take a look. There are alternative workout genres on the links that will enhance each other and add variety.

It is all free so what have you got to lose -- except the obvious?
