5 Gym Mistakes – MAKING YOU FATTER!!!
Check out my client Chelsea’s transformation where he lost a whole bunch of fat.
Today’s video is all about the five biggest mistakes that you’re making at the gym that are making you fatter.
That’s right fatter. It’s totally possible to spend a couple of hours every week at the gym and make no progress at all.
That’s why it’s very important to be doing the right things and that’s the entire point of this video.
I’m going to help you understand and avoid the biggest gym mistakes that cause most people to sabotage their workouts.
By far the number one biggest mistake is focusing too much on cardio and not enough on weight training.
Most people are under the impression that cardio is the best workout for fat loss but that is pretty far from the truth.
When we compare a cardio workout to a weight training workout at face value it looks like the cardio workout is actually burning more calories.
However, when we compare the total fat burning effects of a cardio workout versus a weight training workout
over the course of let’s say 3 days that’s when we say that weight training has a significant advantage over cardio.
you might have heard of something referred to as the afterburn effect, which simply means that your body continues working to repair you’re broken down muscles and return to homeostasis.
Of course, it does take time for your body to return to normal after a cardio workout but after some challenging weight lifting it’s going to take a lot longer and a lot more calories to fully recover.
The idea that weight training is for building muscle and cardio is for burning fat is completely wrong and it’s a myth that you should just forget about.
If you want to speed up fat loss you can definitely do both weight training and Cardio. If you’re doing it in the same workout do your cardio after you do your weight training
this way you have maximum energy for all your heavy lifts and this way you can also delete all your glycogen stores so you could burn primarily fat during your cardio workout.
Or if you want to do it on separate days from your weight lifting you can do that as well.
But if you have to choose between cardio and weight training I would a hundred percent go with the weight training.
