Training Productively or Going Through the Motions?

Scott, how do I know if I am getting the most possible fat loss benefits from my exercise sessions? I am using the same weight training/cardio routine from 10 years ago when I was in great shape, but I do not seem to be getting the same results even though I have been very consistent. ~ Tammy

There is a direct correlation between fat burning hormone levels and the quality of exercise sessions measured by gradual improvements of performance. The higher your levels of effort, the greater the increase of fat burning hormones and metabolism for the 48 hours following each session. A total of three weight training and two Rapid Fat Burning Interval sessions per week help my 12-week personalized program clients achieve a heightened state of fat burning throughout the entire week. The Strip 18 Fat Loss Weight Training Program has many elements of progression built in to help you maximize fat burning hormonal output.

Making gradual performance on a weekly basis helps to peak fat burning hormones when measures are taking to accelerate recovery.

Weekly Performance Progressions

You can improve your performance by increasing weight loads with proper form, increasing the number of repetitions, reducing rest periods, increasing the duration of a set by slowing down the rep speed with strategic pauses and by using special executions. The Strip 18 Program makes use of strip sets which involve reducing the weight load following the first segment of a set. The program file includes video demonstrations to make everything very easy to understand.

I build 6-week personalized training programs for clients with a series of challenges including repetition changes, rest period alternations, special executions and more. Fundamentally, I want to see weight loads increase over the course of a 6-week period while prioritizing perfect form. A huge sense of accomplishment is earned when clients can connect the improvements in performance to faster rates of body transformation.

Rapid Fat Burning Intervals

Adding to the number of intervals performed each week over a 6-week program is the simplest way to drive improvements. However, maintaining the level of intensity necessary during the sprint phases to maximize fat burning hormones is very challenging. As a result, I focus on quality over quantity and aim to improve the sprint length by a few seconds over the course of a 6-week plan.

The Nutrition Connection

The right nutrition approach including organically raised food sources such as Grass Fed Beef plays a large role in body transformation by driving excellent performance. The 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan works very well with the Strip 18 Weight training and Rapid Fat Burning Interval plan by making more stored fat available to be used as fuel during challenging activity.
