The #1 Thing Missing From Your Fat Loss Plan

February 25, 2015

You know the drill. Time to lose weight, which means time to step on the treadmill and start stripping off those pounds, right? 

 

There is one problem major problem with this approach, you are not just losing fat. You are also losing muscle.  Which means in the long run you are making your likely hood of gaining more fat back a lot higher.  

 

What is the best way to avoid this trap you may ask?

 

Strength Training.

 

Doing well planned strength training in a smart progressive manner is the key to results. (STUDY)

 

Why.... you ask?

 

The number one priority when trying to lose fat should be keeping muscle.

 

Losing muscle mass is the LAST thing you want to do. Doing so will make it harder to continue losing fat since muscle is metabolically responsible for most of the fat you'll lose.

 

Maintaining or even gaining strength is the absolute best way to make sure that you're not losing muscle. 

 

We understand it can be daunting. So many exercises and ways to do them most people get overwhelmed before even starting.  Walking into the weight room of the gym with all the meatheads throwing weight around is probably not how you want to spend YOUR free time and can be quiet intimidating.   

 

Luckily, we focus on taking out the guesswork of strength training and focus on teaching proper form first in a fun, motivating, stress free environment. 

 

 

 

The fact of the matter is:

 

Success with fat loss comes from mastering, not amassing. Focus your efforts on only the critical things:

  • Learn how to perfectly execute a small pool of exercises and progress on those by adding weight and/or reps so you can maintain and/or build muscle safely.

 

  • Simplify your approach to training with a clear-cut workout plan. 3 strength training, and 1-2 conditioning sessions each week.

 

  • Pour the rest of your energy into maintaining discipline and consistency with your training schedule and nutrition habits

 

If you’re frustrated with your results and have the deep feeling for change; and know you not only need the expertise of training and nutrition but also the coaching, accountability and support to help you overcome anything, then contact us and let’s have a conversation.
