Tip #41

 

Cardio vs. Resistance. Now, don’t get me wrong here..I do recommend some cardio in addition to strength training. You may be able to lose fat simply by eating correctly, and strength training, but incorporating cardio training will help you expedite the fat burning process, and is VERY beneficial for your health.

Studies show that resistance exercise results in greater EPOC compared to steady-state, aerobic-endurance exercise (cardio) that burns the same number of calories. So, while you might burn the same calories during an hour-long jog, shorter, more intense Fitness Fusion workouts give you more bang for your fitness buck.

The greatest attribute about my Fitness Fusion routine is that it’s not time dependent, so it can be as short as 8 minutes in duration. The flip side is that the result is completely dependent on intensity, (or effort), unlike what you may be used to doing with longer cardio sessions.

This is by far the most effective way to burn body fat. Which is exactly why I designed the Fitness Fusion this way…to maximize the body’s fat burning potential.

Squeezing in just a few minutes of physical exercise per day delivers huge benefits to your health, gives you more energy, and perks up your mood. Also, remember that “working out” doesn’t have to happen in the gym or last for an hour! Short bursts of activity accumulated over the course of the day, can add up to big fitness and health gains, too.

Something is better than nothing–but, more is better than something.
