ugg boots outlet Lift Heavy part 1
For what you are about to receive. The following article is split into 4 parts. Part 1 will explain why we should be avoiding long durations on cardio machines known as ‘long slow distance’ (LSD). Part 2 will look at the reasons why lifting weights works better than LSD training and finally part 3 will explain why we should be lifting heavier with those weights. Part 4 will put it all together in a evenly balance program for you to follow.
The reason for doing it this way is there’s a lot of new understanding to take on board. Some of this is going to go completely against your usual way of thinking, meaning you may or may wish to read any further parts.
Our body was designed to survive from the days when we were hunter/gatherers and our vocabulary consisted of um, ugg and errr. Kind of like a teenager.
When we ran (chasing food or being chased as food) our body would produce the hormone Cortisol (a stress hormone) as chasing food or becoming food can become a pretty stressful thing for us.
When Cortisol is produced, the body begins to store body fat by slowing down its natural metabolism. The reason being, if you are chasing something and don’t catch it, you have no idea when you are going to be eating next. Your body knows that it will have to survive on its own stored fats.
Although our bodies have indeed evolved over the many years there are lots of things about the human body that remain the same. The stress hormone cortisol being released through LSD (long slow distance) being one.
Don’t be fooled that it won’t happen to you just because you go on the cross trainer, stepper, rower or any other form of equipment. It will, the body can’t identify what exercise it is doing or whether you’re looking to burn fat or being chased.
If its LSD training you’re doing and you’re looking to tone and lose fat, you will soon find yourself at a sticking point very soon as your Cortisol levels begin to rise.
The fat burning zone draws fat from the fat stores to be used as energy instead od using carbohydrates; this is known as ‘SUB RQ1’ where the body doesn’t have to use carbohydrates for energy. Now although this is true, if it was so effective, we would be losing pounds as we watch TV or read a book, but as we all know by now, that’s just not the case!
Yes, you will burn more calories when exercising at the gym or walking round the park but to get in the true fat burning zone or ‘optimal zone’ you’ll have to exercise for 90minutes (non stop) at least.
