#transformationthursday - Big shoutout to my client @Mikey_____Mike who just finished up his 12 Week program with me.  He will be starting phase 2 on Monday to add some more muscle to his stature.

SPOT REDUCTION DOES NOT WORK!

Trying to lose fat in one area of your body is like trying to remove a cup of water from one corner of a filled swimming pool. 
A 2013 study measured the effects of exercise on the fat mass of a targeted body area. Subjects did a ludicrous number of leg presses using their nondominant leg over the course of 12 weeks.

Despite performing between 960 and 1,200 reps (!) three times a week against very light resistance, participants saw no significant change in fat mass in the exercising leg. There was a decrease in fat mass in the upper body, but nada in the leg that did all of the work.

Strength training will increase the calories you burn 24/7. High-intensity cardio will let you burn big chunks of calories in a small amount of time. And a healthy diet will ensure that you’re taking in the proper number of quality calories.

Researchers in Finland tries to find the answer to one of the most commonly asked questions by fitness enthusiasts – Should I do cardio before or after weight training.

They found that doing the cardio portion of a workout before a resistance session interferes with muscle-building over the short term — but not after a 24-week period.

Combining cardio with resistance training can offer some health and fitness benefits, but does the order of your workout make a difference in your body composition and muscle development?

We know that what type of cardio – steady state or HIIT (high intensity interval training) – you do makes a huge difference to your physically and metabolically.  Prolonged steady state aerobic exercise can potentially “weaken’ exercise muscles, thereby impairing ability to lift heavy weights in a resistance session.  Also doing cardio before resistance training will deplete your glycogen stores needed during your weight training session.  Researchers theorized putting cardio before weight lifting would result in less favorable anabolic effects.

#motivationmonday - Congrats to my client Annabelle for kicking ass through the first sub phase of her 12 Week program with me.  Within weeks of having her first baby, Annabelle started my program after her husband had done almost 16 weeks with me.

This is what Annabelle had to say: πŸ™Ž”I’ve had my ups and downs but overall I feel great! Having a baby is already tiring and I was scared that I wouldn’t have the energy to go to the gym but I pushed myself. It actually had the opposite effect and I’m more energized nowadays. I reached my first goal which is to fit in my nonmaternity pants! I can’t wait what next month will bring.” Excited to see your progress the next 8+ weeks!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ (at http://myfitbodylife.com)
