I was just reviewing a big file of all the new exercise, diet, and research proven fat burning tips I wrote down for 2009, and I wanted to share 5 BIGGIES that can help your clients get more results AND make your awesome workers even better.
So here we go:
#5 - Recent research shows shuttle-running is tougher than running
intervals in a straight line...
...so if you want to burn fat faster than ever, make sure you incorporate old-school shuttle runs (i.e. classic suicide type drills) into your fat burning interval programs.
#4 - Use a food log.
"According to Men's Health (Feb 2009, p 38), keeping a food log helped subjects lose 3.5 more pounds than subjects that didn't keep the log."
#3 - Hit a personal best in each workout.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. There are a few reasons you need to do this:
a) First of all, everyone loves progress, and if you can achieve a personal record in each workout (i.e. could be # of pushups, plank time, etc.), then you will feel a HUGE sense of accomplishment.
b) More personal bests = more results. Plain and simple.
c) You will get addicted to the workouts, and always want to come back for more attempts at breaking records.
#2 - Get a trainer or join a bootcamp
"According to Men's Health magazine, (Dec, 2009), beginners who work with trainers get more results than beginners who workout by themselves". Guaranteed.
#1 - Read a motivational quote every morning.
I promise you that it will elevate your motivation and inspire you to reach your fat loss goals.
Here's the first motivational quote you can read tomorrow morning:
"Be loud and proud of the healthy changes you are making in your life. There are many more folks secretly wishing someone will take charge and be a healthy role model for them. It might not happen overnight, but if you continue to lead by healthy example - without preaching or being condescending - you can build an entourage that will help you reach the next level." - Craig Ballantyne
Those are 5 unique tips to help you lose fat.
