The Fat Burning Checklist (part 2)

Hey there people,

Here is Part 2 of the Fat Burning Checklist

What are you eating?

How are you training?

How many calories in protein, fat and carbs?
  • Protein contains 4 calories per gram
  • Carbohydrates contain 4 calories per gram
  • Fat contains 9 calories per gram
As you see, fat contains more than twice the calories of protein and carbohydrates.

Most foods contain a mixture of protein, carbs and fat.



What does that mean for you? Well look at some of the info I gave you yesterday, if you know your BMR, then where are those calories coing from.

If you cut your carbs, you still need those calories... where are you going to get them from? This is why most low carb diets end up not working. Because the total daily calories don;t add up.

What Cardio Exercise Burn THE MOST Calories

The Mayo Clinic recommends 30 to 60 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day. This can help control and lose weight, prevent heart disease, build strength and increase fitness. With so many choices, many people wonder which exercises burn the most calories. Below is a listing of the top exercises and the amount of calories burned in 1 hour by an average 160-lb. person (people who weigh less will burn fewer calories and those who weigh more will burn more).


Running is the best exercise you can do to burn the most calories. If you are running at an 8 mph pace (7 1/2-minute miles), you can burn 986 calories in 1 hour. If you add hills or sprints, you can burn even more calories.
While rollerblading became popular in the 1980s, it still ranks among the highest calorie burners. A 1-hour session can burn 913 calories.

Tae Kwon Do

This is a total body workout, building cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, movement, coordination and muscular strength. A 1-hour session burns 730 calories.

Jump Rope

Many people jumped rope as a kid, but incorporating it into your regular fitness routine can burn 730 calories in 1 hour. One hour may be too much jumping, so you can break this down to 10 minutes and still burn 122 calories.

Stair Climber

If you have enough resistance on the machine, using a stair climber can burn 657 calories in 1 hour, as well as build your lower-body strength.


While running fast burns more calories, a slower jog at a 5 mph pace (12-minute miles) can still burn 584 calories in an hour. Long, slow runs are great for burning fat, too.

Basketball and Football

A friendly game with friends can burn up to 584 calories an hour. Exercising with friends tends to make the time go by faster and motivate you to work harder, too.


Swimming is a great total body workout because it uses nearly all muscles in the body. Virtually all strokes will increase your cardio and muscular fitness, while burning up to 511 calories an hour. It's also non-impact, so it's safe and effective for your joints

What about Weight Training:

What weight training will enable you to do is build up a larger degree of lean muscle mass, which then basically serves as your calorie burning powerhouse in the body.

When you calculate your basal metabolic rate, which is how many calories you would burn if you lied in bed all day and did absolutely nothing except breath, one of the factors that goes into this is your total body weight. The most accurate equations will also take into account lean body mass, which represents your muscles, bones, and organs.
      Therefore, the more muscle you have on your body, the higher this rate will be and the better the calorie burning results you will obtain 24/7.

Since muscle tissue is fairly long-term (as long as there is some stimulus on the muscle and you are consuming enough protein it won't be lost), this proves to be an effective long-run strategy for losing body fat.

This is the primary reason males typically can eat more than females without gaining weight - they have more lean muscle mass on their body, thus they are burning more calories around the clock.

The SPECIAL SAUCE SECRET: What I Do at Bootcamp is blend that ALL together. We use resistance training to build lean muscle tissue. We move fast to have a cardio like enviroment.BOOM! Fat Burning Workout

The Fat Burning Checklist


Everywhere you go today..it's One Diet after another.

Low Carb, No Carb, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, No Protein

One New Workout after another..P90X, 10 Minute trainer, Crossfit,

Should you have a CHECKLIST?

Yes People..

What is your BMR?

You use energy no matter what you're doing, even when sleeping, your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories you'd burn if you stayed in bed all day.

What is your Body Fat %

A person's body fat percentage is the total weight of the person's fat divided by the person's weight and consists of essential body fat and storage body fat. Some regard the body fat percentage as the better measure of an individual's fitness level, as it is the only body measurement which directly calculates the particular individual's body composition without regard to the individual's height or weight

Do you know your exercise caloric expenditure? How many calories you burn during exercise. Do you know you can burn 300 calories in just 30 minutes of stair climbing.

Do you know how much cardio you should do? Cardio does do a lot of good for the body. It helps to strengthen the cardiovascular system. But to much cardio could not be what you need. It might even make you gain weight.


You need to know what's going on. This is YOUR BODY.

Get ready this week I have something Special Coming.

Are you sick and tired of:

- working your butt off, but not getting enough fat loss?

- exercise taking up so much of your valuable and limited time?

- Eating boring, unsatisfying “diet foods” too often?

- Feeling hungry too often?

The Cardio Machine that Sucks

Hey Everyone

Rafael here

I just wated to share this super cool article I found:

The Cardio Machine that Sucks

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Recently, I was in Tampa, Florida, at a seminar. Between sessions, a physician from Georgia stopped me in the hall and said, "Hey Craig, you were right about those crosstrainer machines. I've had your program for a few months now and I'm getting better results with the bodyweight circuits."

It's always great to meet clients, and I was curious to find out how he heard of me. Turns out, he found me through Google, landing on an article I wrote about "how elliptical machines (crosstrainers) suck for fat loss".

That's right, I think those machines are almost a complete waste of time.

"I was using one of those machines for a long time and was wondering why I wasn't getting any results," the physician continued, "I'm so glad I found your program and now I'm using the bodyweight circuits from the Dumbell-Bodyweight Fusion Workout", he added.

I told him how I wasn't surprised. In fact, I've never personally known anyone to get great results with one of those crosstrainer machines. Now I've watched really lean people use them, but they didn't get lean with those machines.

I know some people will be angry with what I have to say because they like exercising on the crosstrainer, but the truth is that they just don't work as well as harder forms of interval training.

And hey, any time you are traveling or want a break from regular interval training workouts, you can use one of the 4 bodyweight circuits from the TT DB-BW Fusion Fat Loss program that you get as a bonus when you order the Turbulence Training fat burning workout routine.
