Nope, it’s not true

Nope, it’s not true

Certain fitness myths just won’t die.

These lies are passed from one person to the next, a little piece of misinformation that sets you up for failure.

Maybe you’ve heard one or two…

There’s the one about sit-ups melting off belly fat. (Sorry, folks, spot reduction is a myth. You’ve got to burn the fat from your body as a whole.)

Then there’s the one that says that the faster you perform an exercise the better, even at the expense of form. (Ouch! This is an invitation for injury. Never ever sacrifice form for speed.)

There’s even one about recovery days not being necessary. (It’s actually vitally import to your recovery and fat loss to take rest days.)

But of all the fitness myths out there, the one that offends me the most is the idea that long, slow cardio sessions are the way to lose fat.

So many people waste their time and effort on this one. Do you?

In reality, short intense workouts that incorporate resistance training with challenging bouts of cardio will burn fat much quicker than a long, steady cardio session.

Who doesn’t love to save time?

If you are still plodding away on the treadmill 60 minutes at a time then you are spending more time to get half of results.

Allow me to introduce you to a little technique called HIIT.

High-Intensity Interval Training is an exercise strategy that improves performance with short training sessions. These sessions involve a warm up period, several short, maximum-intensity efforts that are separated by moderate recovery intervals, and a cool down period.

The addition of explosions of speed into your comfortable pace will increase your power, muscle tone, speed, strength, endurance and best of all it allows you to burn more calories.

There you have it—all you need to know to take your workouts to the next level.

Do you have questions about using HIIT to get better results? I would love to hear from you.

Call 954-292-4105 or email adriana@adrianamartin.com today and I will schedule a time to meet with you one-on-one to strategize the quickest and most effective route to meeting your fitness goals. Let’s do this!

Shop Smart

Here’s a quick tip that will save you many unwanted calories…
Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Eat a small, protein-based snack right before you go.

If you go on an empty stomach, you’ll end up with a cart full of bad decisions and regrets.

Also, avoid the chips and candy isle and stick to the outskirts of the store where fresh food such as produce, dairy and meats are displayed.
