Good things happen when you have a low body fat percentage: you look better, you feel better, and you’re healthier. But there’s information overload about how to reduce body fat. Alpha is stepping in and throwing his fitness hat in the ring. He’s offering his advice as he’s been around the fitness and weight loss block a time or two. He’s been an owner fitness centers and a nutrition store.
The number one way to reduce your body fat the fastest, easiest, and safest is doing cardio 1st thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Doing it for 30-minutes first thing in the morning is the same as an hour-and-half later in the day. The body dips into your fat stores as the energy to keep going. You have to do the cardio in your target zone:
220 – your age = number
That number is multiplied by .6 as well as by .75
- My Age is 37
- 220-37= 183
- 183 x .6 = 110 (lower range)
- 183 x .75 = 138 (upper range)
- If I workout with my heart rate between 110 and 138 I am using fatty acids to keep me going
Those two numbers are your lower and upper range. You will be using nothing but fatty acids to keep going in that zone. You don’t have to go the gym. You can walk around the neighborhood or jog in place. Simply get your heart rate in that zone.
There’s so much information out there that is rogue science. Alpha also discusses ‘muscle memory’. He reiterates that muscle doesn’t disappear from missing meals. Muscle is not a ‘precious snowflake. Try this method for two weeks with consecutive sessions. You will see the results.
