The Treadmill Is Stealing Your Sexiness

I know, I know, a Shocking title.

But you won’t read this unless I write it this way.

Too often people tell me that want to lose weight, so they get on the treadmill for two hours a day and other long-time non-effective strategies.

Muscle is sexy, and Marathoners don’t have any. They look skinny, but flabby and UNsexy:

Whose Body would YOU rather have?

 

In my book “Half Assed Health“, I talk about doing short sprints instead of long runs, but people want to fight with me over it all the time. Well, maybe they won’t fight with the research:

 

“One group performed four to six 30-second “sprints” while the other group did cardio for 30 to 60 minutes. The results were nothing short of amazing. Despite exercising for a fraction of the time, those in the sprint category burned more than twice as much body fat.”

Great Strength Exercise For Older People

Sometimes Older people ask for good strength exercises, here’s one:

For the Shoulders: 
I AM AMAZED AT HOW WELL THIS WORKS; YOU’LL SEE!!
(read all of it)

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room
on each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from
your sides. Hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute,
and then relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then eventually, try to get to where you
can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for
more than a full minute. (I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
