Sup AFF (Awesome Fitness Family),
In the last 2 emails, I told you the TRUTH about how to build the body you want.
BUILD MUSCLE TO LOSE FAT
This time I’m going to give you another pearl of wisdom:
TOO MUCH CARDIO WILL MAKE YOU FAT
Not CAN. WILL.
Low Intensity cardio like jogging or the elliptical makes your blunts the receptors for muscle building. So, you are stopping your body from building muscle.
SO YOU WON’T BUILD MUSCLE IF YOU ARE DOING HOURS OF CARDIO EVERY WEEK. GOT ME?
Here’s another reason:
Low Intensity cardio uses muscle to fuel the exercises a lot of time. So, you not only are stopping your body from making new muscle, but you are actually BURNING YOUR CURRENT MUSCLE. Think about your butt shrinking from cardio.
IF THAT DOESN’T PETRIFY YOU, HERE’S ANOTHER REASON:
Cardio also teaches your body to become more efficient at burning calories. This means that each time you get “better” at doing cardio, you are basically teaching your body to do more with less, meaning you BURN EVEN FEWER CALORIES, making it even less effective.
FORGET WHAT THE MACHINE TELLS YOU, IT BE LYIN’!
We talk so much about building muscle. Cardio hurts that in another way too.
Too much cardio actually teaches your body to build a fatigue resistant type of muscle that is better at cardio, AND THOSE BABIES DON’T GROW. FORGET ABOUT YOUR TONED CALVES AND BUTT. Cardio is SHRINKING them. IF you don’t believe me, look at Olympic Marathon runners – the ultimate endurance muscle – not toned.
SO, WHY WILL THIS ALL MAKE YOU FAT?
In the long run, you are going to decrease your metabolism and decrease your ability to burn fat because you are eating muscle for cardio breakfast and not re-building it after you do.
Less muscle = Less calories burned
So you want to get that low body fat?
Build that muscle, and watch it melt that fat off for you WHILE YOU REST!
PS – Next time I’m gonna show you the dirty about what exercises to do to build that AWESOME FEMININE MUSCLE.
