Building Lean Muscle

An Effective Workout That Shreds Body Fat WHILE Building Lean Muscle

 

A diet conducive to weight loss is a staple component in getting a lean, ripped physique.

But equally as important as a diet plan is the workout plan.

This is where most people drop the ball. If you want to obtain certain results, you need to train in a way that will achieve those results.

The problem is that most people don’t understand the mechanics of a workout program. They see a workout routine in a magazine and try it out for a week or so, then skip a day and quit. That, or they see a routine they think sounds better and decide to try THAT one out, regardless of the fact that they haven’t given the former one enough time to see results from it.

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? People do the same thing with diet programs!

Instead of jumping from one workout program to another, if most people took the time to learn the mechanics of how to workout to achieve certain results, their efforts would be 10X more effective.

In this article, I’m going to share a strategy you can use when you’re working out to get ripped while building lean muscle. Once you understand WHY you’re lifting this way, you can adapt any program to it and maximize your workout time time.

The Basics:

Rule #1: Lift in a Way That Burns Calories

Lean Body

Build A Lean Body With Bodyweight Training

 

Bodyweight training is very underrated as a tool when it comes to building a long, lean, fit physique. We aren’t talking about old school calisthenics like back in gym class. This is far more than jumping jacks and stretching. With bodyweight exercises you can get lean, fit, strong and powerful while burning fat and even building lean, shapely muscle.

Bodyweight training provides you the ability to work out anywhere at anytime, no matter what. And you can do them without the need of any gym equipment.

Body weight training is real functional training, not silly stuff like trying to do the dumbbell bench press while balancing on a Swiss exercise ball (silly, ineffective and dangerous!).

If you don’t think you can get strong with bodyweight exercises, try doing a one handed push up in perfect form, arm in beside the body, feet together, slow and controlled. Or a true one legged squat, butt to the floor. Or how about a one handed handstand push up? Or a full range of motion super strict, one arm pull up? Yes, you can get really strong with just bodyweight workout! Most strong looking bodybuilders can’t do any of this. It’s a lot easier to lie on a bench and push up a barbell than it is to move your body through space on a one handed push up.

What about burning fat or bodyweight fitness and conditioning? Well, for starters you could try and hit a workout of 400 Hindu Squats and 200 Hindu Push Ups in as little time as possible. Or do the same with 100 burpees.

Bodyweight Workout Circuit Training

Creating Your Bodyweight Workout Circuit Training Program

 

When you are creating your own bodyweight circuit training program for the maximum fat and calorie burning, muscle strengthening and body toning benefits, remember the following points:

  • Warm up before you start.
  • Keep hydrated while you are working out.
  • Move from one exercise to the next without rest.
  • Increase repetitions as needed to keep your muscles working.
  • Never perform a bodyweight circuit that works the same muscle groups on consecutive days.

Bodyweight Exercise – You Are Your Own Gym Novice Circuit Training

The best way to create a bodyweight circuit training regimen that will stress your muscles and keep your heart rate elevated in the target zone is to practice them first. Perform lunges, burpees, sit-ups, push-ups and planks until you have the form down perfectly. Proper form delivers the biggest benefits, and limits injuries.

You also want to make sure that a bodyweight training circuit only involves 5 or 6 different exercises. When moving from one exercise to the next, try to alternate between muscle groups. Follow squats with pull-ups, burpees with dumbbell rows, etc.

Warming up was mentioned earlier, it bears repeating. Spend 5 minutes warming up your body and accelerating your heart rate. If you are just beginning to experience circuit training, listen to your body. You want to stress your muscles and keep your heart rate high, but do not overwork yourself.

Workout on alternate days only, because your muscles need time to repair. Ihe best tip on creating your own bodyweight circuit training program is to allow a professional to do it for you.

E-Factor Diet Review

The E-Factor Diet Review – Does It Really Work?

 

Hey, Daniel here,

and you’re reading my uncensored e-factor diet user review. You’ll discover all the insights about this diet, and how the efactor diet works. But most importantly, you’ll also discover if that diet really works for you.

Losing weight can be a really hard task. Especially when you get older. I can tell you this from my own experience. When I was in my 20’s, It was much easier to eat what I wanted without gaining any weight. After I passed the age of around 35 the same food I was eating when I was in my 20’s made me fat. I really gained a lot of weight (around 30 pounds) and had a hard time losing that again.

However I was able to lose 30 pounds in 2 month and could keep it off. Honestly, I didn’t lose all of that weight because I was following the e-factor diet. When I started losing weight, this diet didn’t exist. I lost most of the weight after I have done my own research. I started drinking a lot of water. I was eating high protein, low carb food and did workout 3 times a week.

The e-factor diet helped me to lose the last 10 pounds from my 30 pounds I lost. Now that I know what to eat and when to eat the different kind of food, it’s easier for me to keep that weight off. And most importantly, I can eat what I enjoy and don’t have to count every calorie. And I can tell you, it makes so much more fun, when you know what you can eat,

How To Breathe While Exercising

How To Breathe While Exercising

 

In this short article we are going to look at the importance of how to breathe while exercising.

The most important thing is that you just keep breathing! It sounds simple, but sometimes we get so caught up in the activity that we briefly forget, but failure to breathe makes exercising such as bodyweight workouts so much harder. That painful stitch in your side, for instance, is usually the result of not breathing enough; and, if you are short of breath, you will be tempted to stop your workout sooner than you should.

Opening up your lungs gets oxygen to your system which gets your circulation going. Your blood starts flowing to parts of your body that normally do not get much oxygenated blood. It was recently found that cardiovascular activity increases blood flow to the brain which stimulates the creation of new neurons, even in adults. Yes, that is right: cardio exercise makes you smarter! Constant breathing also helps create that wonderful sense of euphoria that is the reward of challenging physical activity. So, if you are just beginning, simply be conscious of how often you inhale and exhale, even if you are not doing it the way a trainer would recommend.

Remembering how to breathe while exercising should be a part of your pre-workout routine. Take a few moments to center yourself. Stand with your feet roughly shoulder length apart and balance your weight on the balls of your feet. Let your arms hang down from your sides, extending them slightly away from your body. Close your eyes and inhale deeply through your nose. Take about twice as long to exhale.

You Must Eat More Protein

Most people don’t get enough high quality protein in their diets from sources like lean beef, tuna, chicken, eggs, cottage cheese and a variety of beans. Protein is not only the building blocks of lean muscle tissue, but it also boosts your metabolism, which helps you to burn more calories, thus burning more body fat. Eating protein burns more calories than eating carbohydrates.

You also want to increase your intake of essential fatty acids.
