In the first two lessons of this course, we talked exclusively about nutrition: 5 simple rules for fat loss, along with some real meals you can eat to start losing fat right away.
In today’s video, we’re going to cover how to exercise for fat loss. Because if you want to lose body fat, exercise is critical. Lots of people make mistakes here, but the truth is there are just a few simple principles to understand — and in today's video, I’ll tell you exactly what they are.
Here's a recap of the simple keys to exercising for fat loss:
- Start now. Get moving; do some exercise and do it right away.
- Mix it up. Mix calorie-burning exercise ("cardio") with muscle-preserving exercise (weight training).
- Get to 5 hours (slowly). Gradually work your way up to 5 hours of total exercise per week.
- Progressive overload. Track what you do, and challenge yourself to do a little more, or a little better, each time."
As long as you do those 4 things, you’ll lose fat quickly and for good. And if you want some help putting it all together, check out the sidebar on the right. We’ve included the first 6 weeks of the exact exercise program we use in our fat loss coaching program, Lean Eating.
That program is what we actually ask our own clients to do when they want to lose fat, based on the best science available and years of our own research. So go ahead: print it out and give it a try.
Tomorrow’s Lesson: Nutritional Supplements for Fat Loss. The topic I get the most questions about, bar none. We’ll talk about which ones should you take –- or if you should take any at all. See you then.
