I have a radical acting proposition:
What if you took your goal – the one you’ve been struggling
to attain for, well, for-freakin’-forever, and haven’t hit yet
Wait for it…
Did EXACTLY the opposite?
Seems like everyone and their brother is on or still
on a fat loss program
Not a problem unless you’ve been on a fat loss program
for the last 2 years. (You know who you are.)
Why don’t you go on a pure strength program instead
and quit worrying so much about intermittent fasting,
EPOC, and MCTs to “speed up your metabolism.”
Have I lost my mind?
Have I gone absolutely bonkers?
No, not in the slightest.
Look, if you’re overweight and haven’t reached your
goals yet, here’s a novel idea for you:
Get as strong as you freakin’ can.
Because you’ll most likely burn more calories accidentally
lifting heavy big a$$ weights than you ever will doing
yet another swing challenge.
Don’t believe me?
Check this out:
When I was arguably at peak condition, I did a 5 rep max
with my squat, deadlift, bench and wore a heart rate monitor.
My heart rate went to 187 bpm and it was “only” 5 reps.
What do you think your heart rate would do if you did
that type of training?
It would work, HARD, that’s what it would do.
You would burn a ton of calories, probably grow some
muscle, and get stronger so you could do a lot more work
than you currently can.
More work = more calories burned = more fat peeled off
Get the work done and njoy the results!
