Muscle Up

Amberleigh CarterComment

Health/Exercise Tip: Muscle tissue is the ONLY metabolic tissue designed to burn fat. This is why weight-bearing and resistance exercises will always trump cardio when trying to get lean, tightened, and toned. 

However, if you're a lover of running, but want to lose fat and gain muscle (without "bulking up"), make your cardio routine into a muscle-building one:

Sprint for 20-30 seconds (all-out, like a tiger is chasing you) and then walk for 2-5 minutes. Do up to 6 sets of these per workout session (with rest days in between), and you'll start to lose fat & burn more fat even when you're at rest. 

Keep in mind that your ability to build muscle tissue relies heavily on your recovery (sleep, rest days, food/nutrients, & water). So, do your workout, eat, hydrate, and rest well, and the fat will burn off. 

Go get 'em, tiger.

Want to Change? Look at your daily routine.

The reason for the current state of your health is found in your daily routine.

If you're wanting to create health, change your routine. It's the small changes each day that lead you to significant ones because changing is living; stagnation is death. 

It's best to equip your body with the means it needs to keep up with your environment: exercise, breathe, hydrate, nourish, meditate, rest--this isn't your New Year's resolution; this is your daily routine. 

So honor your body.  It's the one vehicle given to us for this lifetime.
