Fat loss and improving body compoition is always a popular topic, therefore I thought I would add 2 more to my most recent list which you can find right HERE.

 4.You’re not training at a high enough intensity.

Adding in all sorts of extra small activities such as walking from the end of the parking lot and taking the stairs are all fine and dandy, but they won’t make a mark when compared to metabolic resistance training. With metabolic resistance training we are utilizing resistance training to preserve lean mass and create the biggest exercise post oxygen deficit possible (EPOC) possible. This will keep your metabolism humming along at the speed on light for hours after your workout, while preserving lean muscle. Take that steady state cardio!

 5. Too Many Carbs

Let’s set the record straight, not all carbs are bad for certain people in certain situations. That being said if your primary goal is to look better nekked and you need to evaluate you food choices very carefully. Consuming too many carbs will send insulin levels soaring, which means more storage, rather than burning of carbs. Avoid all white carbohydrates, don’t drink calories, and replace grains with greens as often as possible. If you are below 10% body fat then look into fructose restrictions, fat burners, and cheat days. Until this point, your main focus needs to be on a dietary overhaul and better choices following more of a paleo eating style.

 Analyze your plan of attack for better body composition and how you could improve. This will keep you honest in your efforts and help you reach your goals faster.
