Introducing Our Brand-New Fat Loss Training Phase

Introducing Our Brand-New Fat Loss Training Phase


Glad that caught your attention! Ladies and gentlemen, let's get one thing straightThere is no "fat loss specific phase" of exercise. That's right, you heard me correctly. There is no magical phase that will melt away your muffin top, love handles, or any other cute name you have for your body fat. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's just the reality of it.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "I've heard so many fitness gurus and Instagram influencers preach about their "fat loss" workouts. Are you saying they're all lying to me?" Probably, but not exactly.

Yes, there are certain exercises and training protocols that can help you burn more calories and ultimately contribute to fat loss. However, the idea that there is one specific phase of training or even special exercises that will help you melt the fat away is a total myth. It's a marketing gimmick used by those who want to sell you their programs and supplements.

Let's break it down, shall we? 

First, let's talk about cardio. Cardiovascular exercise is often touted as the holy grail of fat loss. You know the drillhop on a treadmill or stationary bike, and sweat your way to a slimmer physique. And sure, cardio can be a great tool for burning calories, but here's the thingyou don't need to do hours upon
hours of steadystate cardio to see results.

In fact, research has shown that highintensity interval training (HIIT) can be just as effective, if not more so, than steadystate cardio for fat loss. HIIT involves short bursts of all out effort followed by periods of rest or low intensity activity. It's quick, efficient, and can be done with minimal equipment.

But here's the catch– while HIIT can be great for burning calories and shedding some fat, it's not the only type of exercise you should be doing. In fact, too much high intensity exercise can lead to burnout, injury, and a plate au in your results. So, while HIIT can be a valuable tool in your fat loss arsenal, it's not
the end all be all. If anything, it should be incorporated into a wellbalanced program, which brings me to my next thought.

Next up, let's talk about strength training. Many people believe that strength training is only for building muscle and getting stronger. While that is certainly one of its benefits, strength training can also be a great tool for fat loss. 

How, you ask? Well, for starters, strength training helps to build and maintain muscle mass. And why is that important for fat loss? Because muscle is more metabolically active than fat, meaning it burns more calories at rest. So, the more muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn throughout the day. 

But that's not all. Strength training also helps to increase your overall calorie burn during your workouts. When you lift weights, your body has to work harder to repair and rebuild your muscles, which means you'll continue to burn calories even after you've left the gym.

And let's not forget about the benefits of strength training for overall health and wellbeing. It can help to improve bone density, balance, and posture, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as osteoporosis and diabetes.


So, where does that leave us? Well, it leaves us with the understanding that there is no one "fat loss specific phase" of training or any set of “fat melting” exercises. All phases of training– cardio, HIIT, strength training, and even flexibility and mobility work– can contribute to fat loss in their own way.


There are two top secret, secrets to when it comes to a training program that will actually help you lose fat and keeping it offI’m feeling generous, so I’ll share them with you...

1. An effective training program is designed to accomplish two things: improve fitness and be sustainable. Sure, there’s a lot to unpack there, the focus should be on continuing to get stronger, build endurance, and increase cardiovascular output and it should be done in a way that is sustainable longterm. If you accomplish those two things, then fat loss should be one of the many benefits simply by default.

2. It doesn’t matter what type of training you do; you’ll never lose body fat if you eat like a jerk! You could have the best training program in the world and if your diet is terrible, your pant size will NOT go down. Instead of training harder or longer or more often, just put some work in in the kitchen!
