Before I created the short but super effective exercises and workouts I'm about to show you on the next page, I was a full-time Doctor of Chiropractic.

I saw plenty of runners in my practice. Many of them were elite athletes, but a lot of my patients were just getting in cardio sessions in order to lose weight. It would be fair to say that nearly everyone who took up cardio later in life as a way to get fit ended up injured in the long run.

I understand running, cycling, or spending a lot of time in that steady state "fat burning zone" if you really enjoy cardio. But the truth is, "fat burning" cardio doesn't burn fat.

Here's why:

“Fat burning” cardio doesn’t burn fat until you’ve been at it for 90+ minutes.

The whole idea behind “fat burning” steady-state, 60% effort, long, boring cardio is to tap into fat stores. You’re told “after 30 or 45 minutes, your body begins to burn stored fat as fuel for exercise” but here’s the truth:

Your body has three “fuel reserves” it can burn:

  1. FAT Tissue. Every pound of fat is about 3,500 calories. This is long term storage. Your body wants to use this later.

  2. Glycogen stored in muscle. This is short term storage. Most people have around 1,400 – 2,000 calories of glycogen stored in inter-muscular storage, ready to use right now.

  3. Glycogen stored in the liver. This is short term storage. Most people have around 400 calories of glycogen stored in their liver, ready to use right now.

Your body burns glycogen before it burns stored fat, even if you’re working out in the long, boring, steady-state cardio “fat burning zone.” You need to use up glycogen stores before your body will begin burn fat. That’s 1,900+ calories to burn through before you even get to fat burning.

Let me say that again:

In order to burn FAT from cardio, you need to burn 1,900 calories of glycogen FIRST.

Any idea how long that will take? It might take 90 minutes or even 2 hours of running before burning an ounce of fat.

Calories burned per hour running, cycling, or performing “fat burning” cardio depend on the person, but there’s a good chance you’ll need to person cardio for 90+ minutes before your body even starts burning stored fat.

Take into account all of the other factors like long cardio efforts increasing the risk of injury, raising cortisol levels, damaging heart tissue, lowering hormone levels you are already losing, and more…and it’s easy to see why “fat burning” cardio is the worst exercise you can use to get lean

Fortunately, there’s a much faster and easier way to get lean, take off stubborn fat, and tone up.

What to Do Next?

If you want to reverse the aging process, you need to know HOW to trigger your youth-enhancing hormones to slough away old, dead cells while elevating your metabolic process so you can burn away stubborn, flabby fat and replace it with lean, toned muscle.

The answer is
metabolic training. Don’t worry, it’s not as technical as it sounds.

Let me explain…

  • Metabolic training restores hormones to youth levels, giving you the at-rest metabolism of a genetically gifted 20-year-old.

  • Metabolic training involves doing exercises that involve your entire body, so you can activate as many muscles as you can in a short amount of time.

  • There’s a specific way you’ll perform these exercises that will trigger your most effective fat burning hormones, so you can burn off your old excess fat that’s been hanging around way too long.

  • This type of exercise boosts your testosterone levels. Testosterone is your ultimate lean-muscle building—hormone for BOTH men and women.  And much like other hormones, your testosterone levels naturally start to decline after the age of 30, which is why it’s so difficult to gain lean muscle and maintain that youthful body tone as you get older.

Turning back the clock is easy when you know HOW to trigger the right hormones in your body.

I’ll show you the specifics behind this easy, insanely effective method on the next page.

Soon you’ll be able to trigger your youth enhancing hormones, along with your fat-burning and lean-muscle building hormones so you can defy the aging process and look and feel 10 years younger!
