Last week I upset a few folks.
Whenever I tell people that cardio is not the fat burner it’s touted to be, a lot of feathers get ruffled. After all, there’s a lot of dough and time invested in the activity – so it stands to reason that some get upset.
It’s not easy giving up those long, long walks. It’s not easy to stop pounding your joints into putty with distance running. And it’s difficult to believe that endurance training is bad for your heart.
Do I respect distance athletes? Hell yeah.
But I don’t follow their lead. Instead I follow the routines that have always worked for me lightning fast. Those are the workouts that got me out of breath, huffing and puffing – in 30 seconds or less. Those are the workouts that strengthen your lungs and heart.
In my Combat Conditioning book and DVDs I continually emphasize lung power.
Because the more powerful and robust your lungs, the stronger your heart, immune system and entire body. Not only that, but the more oxygen you bring into your body, the more fat you’ll burn and muscle you’ll build.
This fat burning effect only takes about four minutes. But not four consecutive minutes. Just four minutes of heavy breathing out of 15 or 20.
I’ll be covering this in incredible detail in a fat burning secrets seminar I’m holding in early October – wherein I will reveal a great many secrets that you most likely don’t know. And what you don’t know can hurt you as well as cause you countless wasted hours of time.
