Really weird, but worth a try…

To tell the truth, I like body weight exercises…They’re just, well, they’re just fun.

If I were going to pick one person to design me a personal body weight workout it would be Adam Steer.

And if I were going to recommend one person to you, it would also
be Adam Steer.

Big words considering that I’m really selective when recommending people to you.

(The idea of putting my reputation in the hands of someone else’s workout just plain scares me)

But Adam is different so I am going to make an exception.

If you are looking for a body weight style workout then you are going to want to check out this program.

The entire program is body weight-only and can be completed in about the same amount of space you’d need to lie down in, which makes it incredibly cool, especially if you are in the need of a break from hitting the weights and hitting the gym.

Plus each workout is only about 20 minutes long…which is also incredibly cool.

Coolest of all, it doesn’t just include complex ‘Mission Impossible’ style moves.

Bottom line: This workout is worth checking out. (Summer is for training anytime and anywhere…)

There’s no catch and no credit card. Just really amazing and creative ideas about what it takes to sculpt a shredded, functional ‘commando-type’ physique that looks great on the beach but is also
serious “go muscle”–not just “show muscle”.

In other words think ‘cirque de soleil’ strength instead of ‘Mr Stud in the gym strength’

Eat Stop Exercise

Want to make the Eat Stop Eat plan even more effective? Incorporate an interval training exercise program.

According to research, high intensity exercise – such as interval training – increases your body’s ability to recover better than prolonged low intensity exercise (Brockman et al, 1993).

Clinical research also shows that a more pronounced reduction in subcutaneous adiposity (the fat just under the skin) occurs when high intensity interval training programs are utilized rather than traditional endurance training programs (Tremblay et al, 1994).

Exercise regimes such as the Tabata protocols were designed by Japanese sports scientists to condition athletes using interval training. Their research showed that “high-intensity intermittent training may improve both anaerobic and aerobic energy supplying systems significantly.” (Tabata et al, 1996).

Interval training, however, is a highly demanding exercise program, which could be too stressful for many individuals. Most experts agree that low intensity, long-duration exercise is preferable for the general public because it “results in a greater total fat oxidation than does moderate intensity exercise.” (Thompson et al, 1998).

Successful weight loss begins with a change in your diet. Next, follow a resistance training program to maintain muscle mass. When you begin following a weight loss lifestyle like Eat Stop Eat, try adding interval training exercises to your routine.

For your physical and mental health, you should also include traditional long, slow cardio exercises, like walking, as part of your fitness program.

My advice is as follows – Eat to lose weight and exercise to maintain or build your muscles. If you have extra time, try interval training or traditional walking to see if you can lose even more weight. If you do, that’s an added bonus. If you don’t, don’t be afraid to stop interval training and try something else.
