You're desperate to lose weight and nothing is working..
So you start spending longer in the gym and more hours doing cardio.
After a gruelling 2 hour workout hopping from machine to machine (because you don't really know what else to do)..
You get out of bed the next morning excited and feeling confident that you had LITERALLY worked your butt off the day before.
You jump on the scales and there's absolutely NO CHANGE. Nada!!
The disappointment you feel is overwhelming, what more can you possibly do to see your weight start to shift?
Did you know that your workout could be the reason why you're not losing weight??
That's right! You could be slamming your foot on the fat loss breaks with the type of training you're doing.
1. You've increased your stress levels.
By training for over 60 minutes you're increasing your cortisol levels which leads to retention of water weight & body fat.
2. You're losing lean muscle.
Cardio on it's own actually causes you to lose lean muscle. More muscle = more calories burned. Less muscle = less calories burned.
3. You're not doing enough resistance training
With or without weights to progressively overload your muscles. Get 2 free workouts here.
4. Your body can't change without a challenge.
Your body adapts to steady state cardio therefore it won't change until you challenge it with resistance training or HIIT.
5. You're bored therefore aren't training with intensity.
You'll put loads more effort into a training plan or workout you enjoy.
Would you like help taking your foot off the fat loss breaks and slamming your foot on the weight loss accelerator??
They can be done at home or in the gym and are very effective at keeping stress levels low, torching fat and toning muscles.
