Is Your Workout a Waste of Time?

If you hate spending your mornings on the treadmill, or if you’re frustrated with your results, you will want to read this …

You’ve seen people at your gym, spending hours on the bike, the treadmill, the stairmaster, jumping around in aerobics class, you name it … and I’m sure you’ve wondered why, after so many hours, they’re still overweight.  Some of them even have perfect diets!  The reality is, their bodies don’t know how to burn fat, regardless of what they eat, or how much they exercise.

The truth is that aerobic exercise will help you lose 5 or 10 pounds in the beginning because you’re just burning calories … but after that it works against you: you start to burn muscle.

Even though traditional “cardio” is good for your heart and brain, consider the negative hormone responses activated by aerobic exercise, which actually hinder fat loss:

  • Increased stress hormones!
  • Increased cortisol (this is a catabolic hormone, which stimulates appetite, fat storing, and slows down exercise recovery).
  • Decreased testosterone!
  • Decreased immune function following exercise.

So how do we get the benefits without the drawbacks?

In the Maximized Living Seminar, we teach what is called surge training.  Whereas aerobic training takes 30-60 minutes to work, burst training takes 30–60 seconds.  You will learn to do 3 or 4 bouts of exercise per week – that’s about 12 minutes of exercise per week … No more!

Simply put, surge training causes you to burn fat after you’re done.  When would you rather be burning fat? … during your 1 hour at the gym, or during your other 23?

Join the Maximized Living Revolution today! Sign up for the next Maximized Living Seminar, where you’ll learn the new science of surge training, plus innovative and virtually unknown information on weight loss, anti-aging, hormones and toxicity.
