Who Else wants to Speed Up Their Metabolism

William Plower: Who Else wants to Speed Up Their Metabolism

Ask 10 people what type of exercise you should be doing to burn fat quickly and speed up your metabolism and they will probably all tell you the same thing. They will tell you that, 3 to 5 times a week, you need to exercise on a treadmill, elliptical machine, stair climber, etc for 30 to 40 minutes at a moderate aerobic pace. They will probably tell you that the more you do the better it is…. 4 times a week is better than 3 and 5 times a week is even better.

People will tell you this because that’s been and continues to be the mainstream recommendation for burning fat fast by many fitness professionals. Several times a week, get in a certain targeted heart rate, and keep it at that level for about 30 minutes.

I am here to tell you there is a better way to speed up your metabolism. If all you are doing is burning some fat while running on a treadmill to nowhere, you won’t make a complete physique transformation.

This type of workout can be counterproductive to burning fat and here is why. During your workout sessions, long duration exercise and lower intensity aerobics use your stored body fat for energy. This may sound reasonable, but this can in reality force your body to create more body fat to keep in reserve and have ready for your next workout and it will not speed up your metabolism.

Yikes!  What’s worse, this type of exercise when done frequently as typically suggested, trains your cardiovascular system to be efficient. Again, while this sounds good, your heart and lungs can actually reduce their capacity for work, as they are getting more efficient at doing easy work (your long duration, low intensity aerobic workouts), which reduces your heart and lungs ability to handle the physical stress.

This can lead to a host of other problems including higher chance of a heart attack. You are only working within your current aerobic capacity because you are never challenging it to improve on it’s capability. And anything that is easy will not yield results even close to what is challenging for the body to accomplish. To be able to handle stress more easily you should be challenging your body to increase its capacity. How is this done? Resistance Training is the fastest and most efficient way to speed up your metabolism, burn fat fast, and develop lifelong health and fitness that will add lean muscle to your body.

If you want life changing results in the quickest possible time, then get stronger and build some muscle. You will turn your body into a fat burning machine when you add lean muscle to it!

Let’s say that you were consuming the total number of calories that keeps you current body weight stable, but now you start to add lean muscle to your body with proper resistance training…then you will need to use some of those calories that you are eating to feed the new lean muscle and this will create a calorie deficit in your body. 

Also, when you stimulate your body with the right resistance training like I teach my students, the repair and growth process will start using your stored body fat for energy. You will be able to burn fat quickly all day long with this calorie deficiency along with the repair and growth process.

When you are sitting around and doing nothing at all you will still get these fat burning effects. Also, properly conducted resistance training actually increases your heart and lung’s capacity for work. 

By placing intense demands on your body, it is forced to be ready for anything you throw at it. This makes you more resistant to cardiovascular health problems that plague most people…and that includes those that workout using aerobics frequently.

What I have discovered is that you don’t have to spend a great deal of time working out to get the fat loss effects, speed up your metabolism and gain the strength and muscle…you can actually get it done with 2 or 3 weekly workouts that last between 20 and 30 minutes, and even less time at an advanced level.

Remember the key to raising your fat burning capability to the max is to speed up your metabolism.

When you properly use the physical exercises you will speed up your metabolism.

And it’s easy to make this type of exercise part of your life because of its efficiency…and it will help keep you lean and healthy for the rest of your life…muscle is the stuff that fat burning furnaces are made of! I can promise you that.
