Things Are Bad [Maybe]

Sup AFF (Awesome Fitness Family),

cardio

Things are pretty bad, I think….

Apparently people LOVE their cardio.

Because, I got a LOT of pushback on my email about cardio and how it can make you fat if you do too much of it without any type of resistance training (weights).

So, I figured I would clarify some things about cardio.

Cardio is NOT evil.

It helps you shed body fat AS LONG AS you combine it with resistance training.

===> Ladies That’s Why You Need THIS program

 

Otherwise, your body is only going to adapt to the cardio and become more and more efficient at it until it does virtually nothing for you.

How many girls have you seen train for marathons in an attempt to lose weight, but by the time they ran the marathon they are not much closer to their ideal bodyweight OR LOOK THE WAY THEY WANT TO?

TOO MANY.

But, if you do want tone up, and are slightly behind on your body fat goals, what should you do?

NOT SLASH YOUR CALORIES.

That’s a great way to lose muscle, and SAMMY AINT ABOUT THAT. I WANNA HAVE MUSCLE AND LOW BODYFAT.

So how?

Enter High Intensity Interval Training.

What are those?

Well, it’s not a setting on the elliptical, that’s for sure.

The stuff I am talking about is HELL ON WHEELS.

High Intensity Interval Training is HIGH INTENSITY!

training

I’m talking about 4 or 5 ALL OUT SPRINTS.

OR 50-75 yards ALL OUT Sled pushes. You should have to take 2-4 min rest in between.

YOU SHOULD FEEL YOUR PULSE IN YOUR HEAD.

This kind of intensity SHEDS FAT WITHOUT SACRIFICING MUSCLE.

The point is to stimulate the muscle in a way that teaches your body to adapt to fast, intense work…just like lifting weights!

====> This Program Teaches You How

 

IF YOU’RE SENSING A COMMON THEME HERE… YOU’RE RIGHT.

But, all this being said, YOU CANNOT OUTWORK A BAD DIET. Doing a bunch of cardio then washing it down with a brownie just undoes all your hardwork. So be sure to stick to YOUR eating plan, whatever your goal may be.

Peace, love and egg whites 😉

Why Your Diet IS Killing Your Metabolism

Just a quick reminder,

If You Want Sexy Feminine Muscle Click Here

 

OK, let’s get down to bizzzznessssss…….

I can’t even tell you the amount of times I have had someone come into my office, with the latest “10-day flubber flush” or “14-day body makeover” torn out from Cosmo or Fitness Health or whatever.

Before I go further…

A diet needs to be CUSTOM to YOU. You have a different metabolic rate, lean body mass, exercise schedule, non-exercise physical activity level etc. So, there is no one size fits all. You hear me? NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL.

What happens when you follow some of these traditional diets (usually aimed at females)? You lose weight, THEN IT STOPS.

But why is that bad Sam? That’s what I wanted to do.

Let me school you the way my mother used to…with an example.

Let’s say Sara Dissatisfacto needs to eat 2000 calories everyday to maintain her body weight. Basically meaning, if she were to eat that everyday, she would stay the same weight. YOU WITH ME?

OK. But Sara is dissatisfied with how she looks and wants to “tone up” so she decides to lose some bodyfat. NOT THE RIGHT WAY TO DO IT, AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, BUT LET’S KEEP GOING.

So she surfs the net or her cosmo and finds a diet plan ready to go – and implements it immediately. Great.

It has her eating 1000 calories/day. This means that everyday, she is eating 1000 calories less than her body is burning. Great in theory, but Sara’s body is smarter than that…AND SHE SHOULD BE TOO!

how-to-lose-weight-fast

She loses 5lbs the first week, then 3lbs the second, then 2lb the third.

After 3 weeks, she lost 10lbs. AWESOME!

NOT SO FAST.

What happened inside her body?

At first, Sara’s body was under by a good amount of calories, so it shed some body fat, and (if it was low carb – probably), she used up a lot of glycogen to keep her blood sugar levels even.
Each of those molecules of glycogen is bound to almost 3x as much water by weight.

Soooo, you guessed it, she lost a lot of water weight.

But what else did she lose? How come she didn’t keep losing the same amount of weight each week?

Because her body, which was smarter than her, adapted. BODIES ARE SO DAMN SMART!

It saw that it wasn’t going to be getting the calories it was used to, so it cut out the tissue that is the most expensive to maintain….DRUM ROLL…you guessed it, MUSCLE!

muscle

By eating away her muscle, her body kills two birds with one stone. TALK ABOUT EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE!

It was able to eat up her muscle to get the aminos it needed, and satisfy its calorie needs while also cutting its need for future calories.

So, at the end of three weeks, she probably lost 5lbs muscle 2lbs fat and 3lbs water…nothing to be excited about.

She just set herself up for some HUGE fat gain once she gets back to her normal diet because her body now has adapted to a lower calorie intake and going back to 2000 calories per day will be like her eating 3000 calories everyday before she started the diet! That’s 1000 calories over her NEW needs.

SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO TO AVOID MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE AS SARA?

Have moderate decreases in caloric intake with increases in physical activity AND train to increase muscle so that over time you can actually EAT MORE, NOT LESS, and still BURN MORE FAT.

That is how you get toned.

If you don’t believe me, keep doing what you are doing, and see if it gets you that SEXY FEMININE BODY YOU WANT

Til’ next time,

Only 2 Ways To Decrease Body Fat

Hey AFF (awesome fitness family)

There are ONLY 2 ways to decrease your body fat PERCENTAGE.


1) Lose Fat. duh….

2) Increase muscle.

The problem with constantly trying to lose weight is that it’s inevitable that you will also lose some and in some cases A LOT of muscle in the process.

Now, I will try and dispel a few myths about muscle and show you how to achieve the smooth-lined sculpture you want.

You need to HEAVIER resistance training, and not a few pink dumbbell exercises at the end your workout.

“But I don’t want to get bulky”

Unfortunately, the pictures of female bodybuilders have scared away every woman in the world from lifting heavier weights,  to their own detriment.

Let me say it out LOUD. Lifting weights will make you HOTTER!

Just in case you don’t believe me, here are 3 reasons Lifting Heavier Weights Won’t Make You Bulky

1)  Some female bodybuilders on the cover of magazines that you usually see, take steroids. You aren’t doing that.

You better not be, cause I don’t share my Mach 4 facial razors ;(

2)   Men naturally have 7-8x the concentration of testosterone that women do. How many men struggle to gain muscle?

Probably the majority of the men you know. So, if they are struggling with this significant advantage, you are not going to turn into the hulk over night.

3)   When you are building muscle, it is a slow process and takes time.

Beliiiiiiieve me the body doesn’t just pile on more tissue as soon as you touch a weight.

Alright, you had better be convinced by now!

And here’s another scary knowledge bomb:

If you don’t lift weights or exercise to gain muscle, every year after you turn 30, the body loses an average of 1lb per year which decreases the amount of calories you burn and leads to fat gain.

That’s why so many people slowly gain weight as they get older. NO MORE SPANKS!

If FAT doesn’t scare you enough, without lifting weights that are challenging, the body slowly loses bone mass too, and we all know this can lead to osteoporosis and osteopenia. NOT GOOD!

Here are 3 reasons why muscle will help you avoid that:

1)   Muscle helps you burn more fat at rest, which means you can eat more and not gain weight. Hello carbs. A great thing for long term body composition maintenance.

2)   Muscle makes everything look better. Want that round butt? It all starts with built glutes and hamstrings. Defined shoulders? You need to develop your deltoids. Muscle fills in all the areas that are supposed to be there and helps you burn off the things that aren’t supposed to be there.

3)   Being stronger helps prevent osteoporosis and osteopenia

So what does this mean to you? Building muscle should be your primary goal for achieving the body you want.

LISTEN TO ME…..

You will get more toned, and prevent bone and muscle decay as you age, the best ANTI-AGING combo.

THE WORLD DON’T NEED NO MORE GOLDEN GIRLS. The world needs more cougars.

Why Cardio IS Making You FAT

cardio
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.

FatCardio

Here’s why:

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’!

cardio-machine

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!

Sam,

PS – Next time I’m gonna show you the dirty about what exercises to do to build that AWESOME FEMININE MUSCLE.

Sam,
