Why is it that even though you try to workout and eat sensibly, you always hit a plateau at some point (usually WAY earlier than you want)? It seems like you're doing all the right things, but your body just isn't getting any firmer. Your belly is still squishy, the spare tire is still there, and your arms are barely showing any signs of definition.

It’s as if your body simply refuses to tighten or tone up anymore — no matter what you do.

What the heck is going on here?  Is your age to blame?  Or maybe just bad genes?

No, it’s not…

The #1 reason it’s so difficult to get rid of excess fat (and keep it off) is because of one thing and one thing only… a slow metabolism.

Let me quickly explain how your metabolism works (and what you MUST do to increase it if you ever want to shed those unwanted pounds)…

Your metabolism works around the clock 24/7 to keep your body functioning optimally and it requires fuel to keep running.

Guess where that fuel comes from?

Your body fat!  That’s right, your metabolism is fueled by fat.  So by increasing your metabolism, you’re telling your body to burn off MORE fat.

I know, I know.  That sounds easier said than done, but stick with me and you’ll discover how increasing your metabolism is MUCH easier than you think (no matter your age or genetics)…

But first, you MUST stop making the 5 worst mistakes that are causing your metabolism to run slower than a herd of turtles..

1. DON’T Do Isolated Exercises

When you do “isolated” exercises (like bicep curls, leg curls and tricep kickbacks) you’re only working one muscle at a time.  The problem is that these exercises do very little to increase your metabolism.

Here’s why:  In order to boost your metabolism, your heart rate has to be raised to a certain level.  But when you’re only working ONE muscle at a time, it’s virtually impossible to recruit enough muscle fibers to increase your heart rate significantly, so you’ll never be able to spike your metabolism or maximize your calorie burn.

If you want to slim down and tone up fast, you need to incorporate exercises that stimulate as many muscles and expend as much energy as possible at the same time. Using these specific type of exercises (which you’ll discover on the next page) will dramatically accelerate your results.

2. DON’T Use Gym Machines

Those big, shiny machines sure make the gym look high-end, but truthfully, the only thing they’re good for is for sitting down while you tie your shoes or catch your breath!

The problem is this: Machines alter the way your body naturally moves, restricting your range of motion. This severely limits your ability to fully activate all of your muscles fibers, which means less fat burning and less muscle toning.

Worse yet, machines can cause muscular imbalance and excessive strain on your joints, leading to nagging injuries down the road.

If you want fast results, you MUST incorporate exercises that allow your body to move naturally with full range of motion so you can skyrocket your metabolism and put fat-burning on autopilot.

In a minute, I’ll explain the 6 primary movements that are the foundation of these exercises…and I’ll also fill you in on the best types of weights to use for your workouts (no big, clunky gym machines required!).

3. DON’T Do Long Bouts of Cardio

If you’ve been doing cardio workouts to try and slim down, I have some alarming news…

Steady-state cardio (like jogging or doing the elliptical) increases the production of a stress hormone called cortisol.  Cortisol causes weight gain and makes it more difficult to burn off stubborn belly fat.

That’s why no matter how much cardio you do, you can’t seem to raise your metabolism and you always hit a plateau eventually.

Even worse, too much cardio accelerates aging!  When you put your body under prolonged stress, you start producing free-radicals, which damages your cells and causes inflammation…and inflammation is what makes you OLD.  Yikes!

But, there is a RIGHT way to do cardio.  Stick with me because I’m going to reveal what you can do to get insane results in half the time of your regular cardio workout—without causing unnecessary stress on your joints. (Once you learn this simple trick, you’ll kick yourself for not doing it all along!)

4. DON’T Do Crunches & Sit-Ups To Get Flat Abs

When you do ab-targeted exercises (like sit-ups, crunches or side bends), your muscles get sore, which makes you think you’re strengthening your abs.  There you are, crunching away thinking it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be looking beach ready with your rock-solid core.

…Yet weeks after you’ve religiously been doing your ab routine, your belly looks just as bloated and soft as it did before.  All that time and pain for nothing!

Here’s the TRUTH…

Your abs were not designed to crunch, twist, and bend.  In fact, it’s the complete opposite!  The real role of your abdominal muscles is to prevent your mid-section from crunching, twisting, and bending.  That’s right, your abs are a stabilizing force designed to resist movement in order to protect your spine.

So even though you “feel the burn” when you do crunches and sit-ups, you’re actually putting unnecessary pressure on your back, causing much more harm than good.  These ab-targeted exercises can cause lower back injuries by forcing your spine to flex too much, and they do very little to actually strengthen your abs.

The key to getting sculpted abs is to burn off that stubborn layer of belly fat that’s hiding them. In the next few minutes, I’ll show you how to burn away the “ab flab” while stimulating all 6 of your abdominal muscles simultaneously — so you can finally carve out those lean, ripped abs.

5. DON’T Repeat The Same Workouts Over & Over

Repeating the same workout routine over and over is a surefire way to STOP getting results. We’re creatures of habit and we tend to stick to things we’re familiar with and good at. But when it comes to working out, if you want to make progress and keep seeing changes in your body, you’ve got to start switching things up.

You see, your body has an amazingly ability to adapt quickly and when it does, that’s when you hit the dreaded plateau and you STOP making progress.

In a few minutes, I’m going to tell you exactly how often you need to change up your workout routine so you can keep your body guessing, which will keep your metabolism running on high so you can kiss that spare tire goodbye…

How To “Fix” Your Metabolism

Alright, now that you know what NOT to do, here’s the good news…

Science has proven that the most effective way to increase your metabolism is by doing short bursts of high-intensity exercises.  This type of exercise triggers a potent fat-burning effect, known as the “afterburn”, which skyrockets your metabolism and boosts your fat-burn for up to 48 hours after your workout is over.

I call this scientifically-proven method metabolic training.

Don’t worry, it’s not as technical as it sounds.  Let me explain…

Metabolic training involves specific exercises that activate more of your muscle fibers, which creates a bigger metabolic boost, demanding more fat to be burned for fuel—so you can burn off the fat and KEEP it off.

There’s even more good news…

Metabolic training stimulates your youth-enhancing hormones so you can slough away old, dead cells — making you look and feel years younger.  Yes, it’s the Holy Grail of all workouts!

Listen: getting a lean, defined body with a rock-solid core is easy once you know HOW to trigger the right hormones in your body (and stop the production of the bad hormones that are making you fat and old).

On the next page, I’ll show you the specifics behind this fast and easy method.

Soon you’ll be able to crank up your metabolism and turn on your youth-enhancing, fat-burning, and lean-muscle building hormones so you can finally shed that stubborn fat without exercising to death or starving yourself.
