Determination and Motivation for Attaining Your New Year's Resolution


Determination and Motivation for Attaining Your New Year's Resolution

Hey Everyone Rafael here and it's time to start talking about the New Year coming. Anyone can set a New Year's Resolution but only a small percentage of people actually achieve them. This can boil down to your determination and your motivation to achieve your resolutions. Before setting any type of New Year's resolution this year you should sit down and really determine what you want to achieve. Look forward to the end of the year and think where you want to be. Reflect on both your personal and your business life goals. You may decide that by the end of the year you have completed a specific training course to further your career. You may make a commitment to that special person or you may want to kick a certain habit. Then start plotting a course backwards from your end goal. What do you need to do to achieve this? Write down all the steps, big or small, that you need to take to achieve your goal. If you want to do a training course your steps could include things like saving the money for the course, applying for it and figuring out how to make the time to take the course. As you plot each step you will easily discover if there are any gaps or things missing in your plan. If so, instead of using these things as an excuse to not go move forwards, you can look for ways to work around them. By planning ahead you can really define your New Year's resolution more easily. Once you see the steps planned out you can determine if you truly want to put in the effort to attain them. When you commit to this new plan you will already be more determined and motivated. When approaching your resolutions in this manner you may find that what you thought you wanted is not your actual goal after all. As you go through the planning steps a clearer goal may emerge. This can be quite an eye opener and allows you to get on the right path immediately. It can be really hard to tackle more than one resolution at a time. If you are a Resolution Setter, but fail to follow through, thinking through the tasks to get to the final goal may reveal your heart really isn’t in that game plan. Instead, resolve to get to something that sets you on fire with desire to accomplish it. Write out all of your resolutions and then prioritize your list so that your main goal is at the top of the list. All of your resolutions may be intertwined, which in a way is good, as you can do one goal at a time. Your New Year's resolutions may be to lose weight and exercise more. Instead of defining these things as two separate items combine them into one. As you increase your exercise you are going to be losing weight. If your resolutions are totally unrelated then select your top choice as your first resolution and tackle that. As you become comfortable or complete this resolution then you can then add your second choice into the mix. Continue on in this way until all of your resolutions are fulfilled. You are still only focusing on one thing at a time and this allows you to stay motivated and on track to reach it. While it can help to set deadlines for completing each resolution, remember that this is a form of motivation. Certain resolutions may take much longer than anticipated, and this is perfectly acceptable. Just readjust the rest of the timings. Always remember that you are bettering your life in some way and these things are not always done overnight. While life may get in the way always keep your resolution in mind and get back on track as soon as possible.   THE RESOLUTION REVOLUTION IS COMING!

How to Burn a Pound of Pure Fat in 1 Day

"First thing every morning read or listen to something
positive. Your mind is like a garden - whatever you plant
grows. Plant good stuff." - Alwyn Cosgrove
 
Hi Everyone
 
In today's free gift I want to tell you how to burn a pound of fat in 1 day, but first
 
How many of you have wanted results so bad that you have considered a lapband or oband or even a tummy tuck?
 
No judging, it's ok...but my question is...how did your arms look after the procedure? how did they look a month after?
What about your legs...were they nice and tight?
 
You see, I know this...no one wants flabby arms:

No One wants a Flabby Mid section
and no one wants flabby or cellulite filled legs

Can we agree?....No let me show you how to burn a pound of fat in one day:
A pound of fat is 3,500 calories.
 
So, to lose 10 pounds of pure fat, you need to create a 35,000 calorie deficit.
 
(please realize that 10 pounds of *fat loss* will probably equate to somewhere between 15 and 20 pounds of actual "wt loss" due to the simultaneous water loss that occurs any time you lose fat).
 
So, a 35,000 calorie deficit, huh?  That's easy.  In fact, if you didn't eat anything for 15 days, combined with exercise, you'd probably burn even more than that and finish up absolutely ripped after only 2 weeks of sacrifice, right?
 
WRONG.
 
Your body does *not* like long-term, drastic reductions in calorie intake and simply responds by...
 
1) shutting down metabolism and
2) holding on to body fat, both as a starvation protection mechanism.
 
Therefore, should you ever decide to try something akin to the above, you'd only end up wasting a heck of a lot of time and sacrifice for some pretty crappy results.
 
In fact, you'd probably end up looking "sick" and still fat.  Probably *not* the look you're going for...
 
Simply put, creating massive calorie deficits (by not eating, or eating very little) does NOT work for optimal fat loss and physique transformation, and those looking for a quick fix all too often fall victim to trying something so silly in attempt to wake up next week with the body of their dreams.
 
Bottom line: your body is smarter than these elementary methods, and will very quickly put the breaks on your fat burning efforts in favor of protecting you from starving to death.
 
So does that mean that the "slow and steady" road is the only path to fat loss, or that rapid fat loss is a dead dream?
 
Nope!  It just requires "smarter" methods that keep you one step ahead of your body, always in "good standing", instead of repeatedly aggravating it by denying it the nutrients and energy it needs to function.
 
So how can we be smart about rapid fat loss?
 
Well, there are a number of ways (that when combined in the most strategic fashion can equate to some incredibly fast fat loss results), but one of the pieces of the puzzle is to create a massive calorie deficit that *actually works* because it's timed appropriately in conjunction with a time in which your body is very receptive to fat burning.
 
If you've read any of my past writings then you know that I'm a strong believer in utilizing Cheat Days to upregulate metabolism and important fat burning hormones, particularly leptin, while dieting.  After all, it only takes one day of overfeeding or "cheating" to bring these hormones back to baseline and put the body back into an optimized fat burning state (while it takes about a week for them to substantially drop off again).
 
The end result is greater net fat loss week after week while still being able to enjoy your favorite foods on a regular basis.  I'll take that deal.
 
Given that information, let me ask you a question:
 
When do you think might be the ideal time to introduce a massive calorie deficit to a cycle in order to burn the most fat?
 
I'll let you think about that for a minute...
 
Okay, got your answer?
 
Well, if you said after a Cheat Day, then you are 100% correct!  Fact is, after a Cheat Day, your body is *massively* primed to burn fat.  Leptin levels are at their peak, in addition to other important fat burning hormones, and your body is READY and WILLING to use fat for energy.
 
So, it's after a high calorie day that you'll want to create a massive calorie deficit via:
 
1.  minimal calorie intake (i.e. strategic fasting)
 
2.  massive energy expenditure through optimized exercise
 
Essentially, you're creating a huge calorie deficit (through both diet and exercise) on a day in which your body is extremely primed to burn those calories as fat AND when metabolism is at its highest point.
 
Make sense?
 
The truth is, through proper timing and proper strategy, you really CAN burn a pound of pure fat (and lose even more on the scale) in one day, without silly fat loss gimmicks or fads.
 
The secret, my friends, is all in the strategy.
 
 
You can NOT get the results you want by wishing or hoping...You want tight? You need to train and eat
ARMS, LEGS, And MIDSECTION...
 
No exception

Calorie Intake To Lose Weight Keep Your Metabolism Burning Hot

Hey Everyone

Rafael here with a special post on: Calorie Intake To Lose Weight Keep Your Metabolism Burning Hot

Make sure you leave your thoughts in the comment box

When it comes time to seriously commit to losing weight the vast majority of the population will immediately think in terms of cutting calories.  We all know that in order to lose weight we will need to burn more calories than we take in.  I guess many people start with calorie intake to lose weight because with all the diet plans and supplements available it just make this method, as opposed to exercise, seem easier.

The truth is though that calorie cutting alone probably won't be enough to lose all the weight you want to lose.  And here's why.  One pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories.  That means in order to lose just one pound of fat we will need to decrease our caloric intake by 3500 calories.  Most people should be taking in between 1,500 and 2,500 calories daily.  That means you would need to go without food for days just to lose one pound of fat!  Impossible, and unhealthy.

If you keep in mind that your body works kind of like a furnace,  you will understand why you need to continuously supply it with fuel.  Even if you could cut way back on the calories you take in daily, it still wouldn't work. Your body was designed to keep itself alive, at all costs.  It's hardwired to protect itself from starvation.  If you cut way back on the calories you take in, your body will think it's starving and will shut down as much as it can to preserve resources.  That means your metabolism will slow way, way down and you won't lose any weight.

The one thing you want to do when trying to lose weight is to keep your metabolism burning nice and hot so you can burn as many calories as possible.  In order to keep your metabolism burning hot you will need to constantly provide it with a sufficient amount of fuel.

Keeping your metabolism burning hot is another reason why restricting your caloric intake alone is not the optimum way to lose weight.  If you combine some form of exercise, particularly weight training, you will really ramp up your metabolism.  Why?  Simple, muscle burns hotter than fat.  For every bit of muscle you add to your body you are permanently ramping up your metabolism.

One word of caution for all of you women out there: you do not have to worry about 'bulking up' if you lift weights.  You would only be able to get bulky, if you wanted to, by basically becoming a full time weight lifter.  The women you see who are all bulked up work out for hours every single day, they eat perfectly, and sometimes they are even taking supplements.

You can lift weights a few times a week and you won't bulk up.  What you will do is tone up which will make you look 'tighter' which means you will look slimmer no matter what your actual weight is.  If you and your best friend both weigh 120 lbs but you are toned and she isn't you will look a lot slimmer.  So start lifting those weights.

If you took two people of the exact same weight, age, and gender, the only difference is that one had more muscle mass than the other, and compared their metabolic rate you would see that the one with the higher muscle mass would have a much higher metabolism all the time, even while they were sleeping or watching t.v.

When you keep these facts in mind you will see that calorie intake to lose weight is a very important element, but it is only part of the equation.  To truly optimize your weight loss efforts combine diet with some form of exercise program.  Not only will you more quickly achieve your weight loss goals, you will also have a healthier, better looking body.

Your #1 Fat Burning Hormone

Your #1 Fat Burning Hormone
(And How To Control It)

By Joel Marion, CISSN
Did you know that there's ONE solitary hormone that pretty much controls EVERY other weight loss hormone in your body, and your ability to burn fat altogether?
In fact, when you have this ONE hormone on your side, fat loss truthfully couldn't get easier.
When you don't, however, losing even a single pound can become virtually impossible.
The hormone? Leptin. And here's the unfortunate news: Just about everyone is unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin each and every time they attempt to lose weight.
With that said, it's not very hard at all to see why so many people outright struggle to shed their unwanted body fat, month after month, year after year.
That's why in the next few paragraphs I'm going to explain to you exactly why and how leptin is limiting YOUR fat loss, and how 6 odd herbs—many of which you probably never heard of before—can actually solve all the problems leptin poses as you attempt to drop those unwanted pounds.
Ready?
First, in order to burn fat, your body depends on these two things:
1) high levels of leptin
2) highly-sensitive leptin "receptors"
Now for the bad news…
Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced.
Why?
Because leptin's main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a huge asset to survival.
After all, body fat provides a vast supply of stored energy and warmth, both highly-valued resources when food is in short supply.
You see, when you go on a diet, your body isn't aware of your hopes for a slim, tight waistline or your desire to drop 20 lbs in time for your high school reunion or summer beach season. In fact, the only thing it does know is that your calorie intake is now below "normal"… and to your brain, that's a big red flag.
The result: reduced leptin levels and dramatically decreased fat burning.
In fact, research has shown that leptin levels drop by as much as 50% after just 7 days of dieting… that puts you at only 50% of your fat-burning potential just one WEEK in to your fat loss plan, and it only gets worse with each passing day.
And if that wasn't bad enough, with every pound you DO struggle to lose, leptin levels fall even further, making it even more difficult for you to continue to lose fat.
Why?
Because, as mentioned, in the face of calorie restriction, your body views stored body fat as an asset to survival. The more fat you lose, the more "danger" your body senses, and the harder it is to strip away that next pound.
Hello fat loss plateaus!
Now, I hate to continue to be the bearer of bad news, but the scenario I just explained is actually only HALF the problem.
The other unfortunate reality is that the vast majority of people are ALSO suffering from a condition known as "leptin resistance" due to years of high body fat levels and a diet full of processed foods.
Leptin resistance simply means that even at high levels, leptin is no longer able to properly signal fat burning to your body, dramatically decreasing it's fat loss effects. That's a pretty disheartening truth for the fat loss enthusiast, but as I alluded earlier, there IS something you can do about it.
Let me ask you this:
What if I told you there was a drop-dead simple way to keep leptin levels high as you lose weight,while also increasing your body's sensitivity to the hormone?
Is that something you might be interested in?
You see, if you could do that, you could essentially keep your body in a fat-burning state all the time… high leptin levels = high levels of fat burning… 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Can you just imagine how much MORE fat you'd burn if your body was no longer limiting your rate of fat loss on a daily basis?
A LOT more.
And here's the great news: there is indeed a drop-dead simple way to achieve exactly that, and even better, it only takes a measly 30 short seconds each day to implement.
As mentioned in the subject of this email, this "trick" involves the use of 6 odd flab-belly herbs that together have been shown to tackle leptin from both problematic angles: production and sensitivity.
Here they are:
#1. Irvingia Gabonensis, a powerful extract from the African mango that has been shown to support leptin sensitivity by inhibiting the production of C-reactive protein (CRP), a chemical in the body that has been linked with the development of leptin resistance, by up to 52%.
And check this out...
To further support this extracts dramatic effect on weight loss, in one double-blind study, 102 otherwise-healthy overweight volunteers received either 150 mg of Irvingia extract or a placebo, twice daily prior to meals, for a period of 10 weeks.
At the end of 10 weeks, the Irvingia group lost an average of 28 pounds (13.1% decrease in body weight), shed 6.7 inches from their waistline, and had reduced their total body fat by an average of18.4%!
Furthermore, it was found that those who supplemented with Irvingia experienced a 26% decrease in total cholesterol, and blood sugar levels dropped from an unhealthy fasting blood level of 85.5 to a much healthier 66.3!
As expected, those receiving the placebo experienced no measurable difference in scale weight, girth measurements, body fat percentage, or health markers
#2. Oleanolic Acid. This compound extracted from olive tree leaves has a stimulatory effect on a specific gut peptide called Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Research shows that an oral dose of this extract can increase GLP-1 by 48%, which has in turn been closely linked to increased leptin production.
#3. Modifilan®, a potent seaweed extract harvested from pristine Arctic waters off the coast of Iceland, has been shown to stimulate increased leptin production in fat cells by up to 18% through its ability to stimulate Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) in the adrenals. Stimulation of TSH in turn stimulates the production of leptin in fat cells.
#4. Panax Notoginseng, a well-known and commonly used traditional Chinese herb called "Shan Qi" by master herbalists was recently shown to also have unique metabolic properties, including naturally suppressing appetite and increasing leptin sensitivity.
#5 & 6. YerbaX™, a potent blend of a rare green tea extract and South American yerba mate extract which together have been shown to synergistically increase resting metabolic rate and mobilize fatty acids from fat cells to be burned, all while suppressing appetite and increasing energy and alertness.
Now, while you could try to locate all of the above ingredients individually, research the actual extracts of each that yield the positive leptin effects mentioned above, purchase them all separately and pay shipping on each, then sort through study after study to determine the scientific dose of those extracts, the good news is that we already did ALL of that for you at BioTrust Nutrition and put it in to one scientifically-backed, lab-tested, ultra-convenient product called LeptiBurn™.
Just take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the afternoon and let SCIENCE do the rest.
You see, LeptiBurn™ is the ONLY scientifically-backed dietary supplement created specifically to solve your body's BIGGEST fat-loss problem: your body's production of, and sensitivity to, the ONE solitary hormone that literally controls everything related to fat loss.
Listen, the fact is this:

The Top 10 protein sources other than chicken

If you're like most, you could probably use a change of pace to your diet beyond the regular ol' chicken breast.  So, to spice up your diet, and your taste buds, here are 10 other protein sources to begin mixing into your weekly meal plans (in no particular order):

1. Eggs - Eat the whole egg, not just the white. The yolk is actually the most nutrient dense portion of the egg, providing a ton of vitamins and minerals...and it has the benefit of making the egg taste mo' better.

2. Shrimp - Grill 'em up, or sautee them in some organic butter or extra virgin olive oil. Mix with veggies and enjoy.

3. Salmon - An awesome fatty fish containing loads of protein and a healthy dose of uber-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Greek Yogurt - Greek yogurt packs twice the protein of regular yogurt. Go with the plain variety and sweeten with a packet of stevia or truvia (our favorite non-calorie sweetener) if you'd like.

5. Ground Turkey - Super lean and great for chili. Mmmmm chili. Make some. Eat some. Enjoy some.

6. Pork - The "other" white meat, just as lean as chicken when you get the right cut. Go for the boneless chops and trim the outer fatty edge.

7. Chicken Sausage - You probably won't notice the difference between chicken sausage and "regular" pork sausage, but it contains a much more moderate amount of fat...great for those protein and carb meals.

8. Beans - Like black beans, kidney beans, red beans, navy beans, black eyed peas, lentils and the list goes on and on are actually the least expensive protein source in AMERICA (and probably every other part of the world as well). Low glycemic, crazy high in fiber. Add it to your turkey chili, or any other meal you want for that matter.

9. Bison - All the taste of beef while being incredibly lean. Great for protein and carb meals when you're wanting to limit the fat content of a meal while still packing a mean flavor punch. KA-POW!

10. Grass-fed Beef - Grass fed beef is rich in CLA, a special fat that has actually been shown to result in fat LOSS. Eat this...tastes great, great for your figure.

11.  SPECIAL BONUS - And of course, we've saved the best for last!  The food we share with you at the link below is perhaps our all-time favorite, and one of the most delicious and effective protein sources available.  Even better, it can have a dramatic impact on your fatloss results when used in a strategic way...check it out:

The TRUTH About Carbs, Blood Sugar & Fat Loss

The TRUTH About Carbs, Blood Sugar & Fat Loss 

(Eat Your Heart Out With This 45-Second Trick)

By Joel Marion, CISSN
You've probably heard that carbohydrates are perhaps the WORST thing you can eat when trying to lose fat or transform your body, and for most people, that's 100% true.
You see, due to years of consuming a diet full of processed carbs, most people have grown VERYinsensitive to one of the most important hormones in our body—a hormone that can either be a huge asset to your body transformation goals, or a total fat loss and health-derailing nightmare.
The name of this hormone is insulin.
And it's function is to help your body keep blood sugar at bay, clear it quickly from your bloodstream after a carbohydrate meal, and (hopefully) shuttle those carbs to be stored in muscle tissue for energy instead of info fat cells, driving up your weight.
I say "hopefully" because that's actually the exact opposite of what occurs when most people eat carbs.
Going back to insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate tolerance, due to a diet full of processed, insulin- and blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates, most folks are suffering from some level of insulin resistance, a condition in which insulin is no longer able to efficiently remove blood sugar from the blood stream.

The result? Dramatically reduced fat burning, increased blood sugar levels and increased fat storage.

Even worse, insulin resistance can (and often does) lead to type II diabetes and an array of other health problems over time, such as an increased risk for Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders,premature aging, heart disease, and even stroke…and it all leads back to insulin sensitivity.

Ideally, when you consume carbohydrates, here is what you want to happen:

1. Minimum insulin release. This occurs when your body is highly sensitive to insulin. When it is, only a small amount of insulin is necessary to effectively and efficiently clear sugar from your blood to its storage sites. This is great news because your body has an incredibly difficult time burning fat in the presence of insulin. The less insulin you have floating around, the better.
2. Quick and efficient blood sugar clearance. Again, this will occur when your body is highly sensitive to insulin.
3. Maximum glycogen uptake. Glycogen is the term used for stored carbohydrate in muscle tissue and the liver. When these tissues are highly sensitive to insulin, the vast majority of blood sugar will be stored within them as an energy reserve, instead of being converted to fat.
4. Minimum fat storage. When you increase insulin sensitivity, your body will choose to store your carbohydrate intake as energy, again in lean muscle tissue and the liver, instead of body fat.
Again, your body's ability to tolerate carbohydrates all comes down to your insulin sensitivity and your body's ability to quickly and efficiently shuttle carbohydrates to lean tissue and not fat.

So how can you increase insulin sensitivity?

Well, you could go completely low-carb for an extended period of time in an attempt to repair your insulin receptors and increase insulin sensitivity. But for most, that's a rather dreadful option and even then you'd need to very slowly reintroduce carbohydrates back in to your diet to avoid massive fat gain.
No thanks.
Fortunately, you DON'T need to go low-carb or no-carb… at all.
In fact, many times you can enjoy even MORE carbohydrates than you currently are while losing even more fat when you utilize this one simple trick:
SUPERCHARGE your insulin sensitivity before each carbohydrate-containing meal in just a few seconds with the below 5 ingredients – each of which has been clinically shown to dramatically improve both insulin sensitivity and your body's ability to process carbs.
Here they are:
  1. #1. Cinnamomum Burmannii, a potent extract harvested from Indonesian cinnamon bark that has been shown to effectively assist in managing blood sugar after a carbohydrate-rich meal while increasing your body's ability to process the carbohydrates you eat by up to 10 fold!
  2. #2. Berberine. This rare plant alkaloid has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine in India. Berberine works slightly different by improving the signaling between insulin and its associated receptors while also increasing carb uptake by lean muscle for energy, not fat.
  3. #3. Pterocarpus Marsupium is another all-natural herbal remedy used by Ayurvedic physicians in India.  In fact, Pterocarpus Marsupium is so effective that it was shown in a recentIndian Journal of Medical Research study to reduce blood sugar levels 2 hours after a meal by a whopping 21%.
  4. #4. 4-hydroxyisoleucine, a natural phytochemical extracted from the Fenugreek herb harvested in the remote regions of Eastern India, has been scientifically shown to increase carbohydrate storage in muscle cells while decreasing carbohydrate fat storage through the sensitizing of insulin receptors in muscle tissue.4-hydroxyisoleucine has also been shown to interfere with the process by which the body converts muscle protein to sugar for energy. This encourages fat loss (instead of muscle break down) and aids in the retention of calorie-burning lean muscle as you lose fat.  This is great news because the more lean muscle you hold on to as you diet, the more calories your body naturally burns without any extra effort on your part
  5. #5 - R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA). Alpha Lipoic Acid is a naturally occuring fatty acid made up of two isomers, S-ALA and R-ALA, of which the R isomer has been shown to be significantly more effective and bioavailable. In fact, R-ALA is clinically proven to increase insulin sensitivity by an impressive 25% in just 4 weeks and is so powerful at managing blood sugar that it's even used by German doctors for the treatment of various nervous system conditions caused by high blood sugar.
Now, while you could try to locate all of the above ingredients individually, research the actual extracts of each that yield the positive carbohydrate tolerance effects mentioned above, purchase them all separately and pay shipping on each, then sort through study after study to determine the scientific dose of those extracts, the good news is that we already did ALL that for you at BioTrust Nutrition and put it in to one scientifically-backed, lab-tested, ultra-convenient product called IC-5™.

The #1 Bodyweight exercise

Hey Everyone

Rafael Moret here with a cool new program
Most experts agree that this exercise is the BEST exercise of all time.

But...

It's not a pushup.
It's not a squat.
It's not a sit-up, either.

It's WAY more than that...

More bang for your exercise buck, that's what gets dramatic results
faster, right?

So if you had to do ONE exercise to get you fit and looking
fantastic in record time, what would it be?

According to the chairman of the Department of Kinesiology at
McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario, when asked his opinion on
the single best exercise, he suggested the burpee because it "It
builds muscles AND it builds endurance."

It's a 3 for 1 exercise that only takes 3 seconds to perform.
You'll hit the upper body, lower body, core and cardiovascular
system all within that 3-second window.

But did you know there is more than ONE way to do burpees?

Discover ALL of the burpee variations here

No matter which one you use, nothing is more efficient for
fat loss.

The fact that you need NO equipment and can do burpees pretty
much anywhere are added bonuses.

And in my friend Shawna K's new Challenge Burpee program, you'll
get a done-for-you fat loss workout system that uses this
best exercise ever.

You'll find 21 workouts with burpees and combinations that
you've never done before. You'll be challenged to push your fitness
levels and the 'happy coincidence' whenever you consistently
challenge yourself is a rockin' hard body.

(Shawna is living proof! She's 50 years old but can keep up
with 20 year olds...and she even has six-pack abs.)

These are the workouts she and her most successful clients use

Shawna will also let you in on her insider secrets on how to get
the most from each move inside her coaching videos that come with
the workouts, too.

This ensures that your exercise form is perfect, will maximize your
results and keep you injury free. For much less than a buck a
workout, you're really getting 'bang for your buck' in more ways
than one.

You'll also want to try her 500 and 1000 Rep Workout Bonuses to
really boost your fitness and fat burning.

Discover how to use the best exercise of all time to get ripped 

Join the 3 for 1 exercise movement!

Thank You

4-minute addiction proven BETTER than 30 min of cardio [STUDY]

Hey Everyone


Rafael here



There's a new 4 minute addiction that's sweeping the nation that's
proven to be BETTER than 30 minutes of normal, boring cardio.
Canadian researchers at Queen's University tested a workout using workout
"finishers" style of training against long cardio.
(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)
- 22 college-aged women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks in one of three
groups.
Group A: did 30 minutes of treadmill running at 85% max heart rate
Group B: did 8 rounds of 20 seconds of a single exercise (burpees, jumping
jacks, mountain climbers, or squat thrusts) with 10 seconds of rest between
rounds.
Group C: did nothing (they were the non-training control group).
Results: Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels by the SAME
amount (about 7-8%).
That's right, these short workout finishers (of ONLY 4 minutes) worked
just as well as 30 minutes of cardio!
 

Shocking? Yes, but that's not all.
ONLY Group B, the workout finishers style training, also increased muscular 
endurance in common exercises like chest presses, leg extensions, sit-ups,
and push-ups.
Make sure you read that last sentence one more time so it sinks in please...
Enjoyment is obviously a key to consistency when it comes to exercise
otherwise you'll never follow through. 
The Canadian Scientists concluded that "extremely low volume bodyweight
interval-style training" will boost cardiovascular fitness just as well as cardio
while giving you BETTER improvements in muscle endurance.
All in only 4 minutes.
So, what was the EXACT protocol that helped these people get shocking results
in just 4 minutes?
It's called METABOLIC STACKING from my good friend Mikey Whitfield who's
lost 105 POUNDS using this brand new scientific approach.
It's all part of Mike's brand new Workout Finishers 2.0 System ...
And best of all, you don't have to change what you're currently doing!
Just plug in Mikey's "Finishers" with your favorite workouts to double your
results and create a 38 to 48 "after-burn" of increased metabolic rate...
And right now, it's 65% off.
And in addition to all 51 BRAND NEW Workout Finisher Follow-Along Videos,
you'll also get the 21-Minute Finishers Express Workout System 100% FREE.
But there is a catch.
These special combinations of metabolic resistance training, metabolic
conditioning and metabolic finishers are only available TODAY during this
special celebration:
==> 51 Workout Finishers PLUS FREE 21-Minute Workouts (65% off)
MORE PROOF: 
Mike has entered 6 of his private clients into Craig Ballantyne's Turbulence
Training Transformation Contest and ALL 6 clients won or placed, even with
thousands of people voting.
And they did it with ZERO cardio.
Their secret weapon was Mikey's "finishers".
So don't be surprised when you find yourself with NEW definition in muscles
you haven't seen before after trying these bad boys.
That's what finishers will do. Especially when you bring your body
a unique stimulus like this.
Here's the bottom line. I wouldn't recommend this program if I didn't believe in
what Mike creates and does.
