Sounds insane right?

If you are tired of not getting the results you want keep reading!

For ages we have known that doing more cardio is better, but actually the “fat burning zone” on your cardio machine should state ” by doing this you are teaching your body to store fat”.

This mind blowing study( by the European Journal Of Applied Physiology)  shows that people who performed long cardio suffered from decreased T3 hormone production. This is the hormone responsible for burning fat.

Prolonged cardio also puts a massive amounts of stress on your body,  continuous stress on your joints, scarring of the heart tissue which can lead to heart attack. It also causes your body to release high levels of cortisol which is linked to heart disease, cancer and visceral belly fat.

The study suggests that if you want to lose weight you should forget about classic cardio training!

To keep your heart healthy – don’t jog but sprint! This means do a very short High Intensity Cardio workout like the one we offer at Rock Solid Fitness! It consists of short ,”all out” cardio intervals separated by rest.

And most importantly -Lift Weight! Muscle is active tissue that burns 6 calories/per lb per day. Fat on the other hand burns only 2 calories/per lb per  day.
