The ultimate cardio replacement

I hate cardio.

Don't we all?

Well, sadly, no. When I go into my gym I still see row upon row of cardio machines jammed with magazine readers hoping to lighten the load of their belly fat. But it won't happen.

Did you know that traditional cardio increases your cortisol production and can lead to muscle and strength loss?

Also a recent study at the University of Tampa showed that adding ‘Jogging’ to a weight training program decreased strength gains by 50%.

If you're getting weaker you're losing muscle. And if you're losing muscle, your fat percentage is going up.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather be stronger and leaner than weaker and fatter.

Yet another reason NOT to do traditional cardio.

Here’s the ultimate cardio replacement

Sure, we all know about HIIT, but let’s face it, you can get too much of a good thing. If you notice that you’re feeling your performance is lacking, you’re getting weaker, losing muscle and generally just looking ‘soft’, it may be time to put HIIT on vacation.

This is better than intervals (intense)

One that will burn fat, boost metabolism and build muscle in 20 minutes or less?

If you want to look like (and feel like) a super hero, build your strength and coordination, and make everyday activities so much easier…

… just use this approach for 20 minutes or less.

This approach (once only used with athletes) will strip off body fat and build rock solid muscles at the same time because of the metabolic and progressive approach.

Shake up your program with something completely different.

Put ‘cardio’ and ‘HIIT’ on the shelf and try this.
