Everything You Know About Working Out Is Wrong (And Here’s Why)

Most people think you need to spend endless hours at the gym in order to get in shape. But, you can actually get better results faster, in as little as 30 minutes per week.

If you’re not seeing results despite spending a lot of time at the gym, it can be very discouraging – it might even turn you off to the idea of going to the gym at all. But here’s the thing – the reason you’re not seeing results is because everything you’ve been taught about exercise is wrong.

People spend endless hours in the gym hoping they are burning lots of calories. But, exercise is not just about burning calories. In fact, exercise is pretty ineffective for that purpose. We do not burn nearly as many calories through exercise as we think we do – certainly not enough to make much of a difference. Pus, burning calories just makes us eat more! Exercise is about creating a reaction in your body that leads to physiological improvement. If we exercise effectively and follow the correct plan, it does not take a lot of time to create this reaction.

And here’s where the 30 minute per week workouts come in. 30 minutes is more than enough time to thoroughly fatigue your muscles. And if you fatigue your muscles thoroughly enough, you wont have to fatigue them again for days.

These workouts will elevate your metabolism. Not only will this assist with fat loss but it will lead to improved cardiovascular health. And, in the days following your workout, your muscles will grow and become stronger, leading to a more toned, more functional, more capable body.

In other words, if you work hard enough, but also strategically, your body will respond by becoming more fit and healthy BETWEEN workouts. These benefits are not linked to how long you exercise – they are linked to how efficiently you exercise. So, not only will you see better results in less time compared to conventional workouts, but you will experience less joint wear and tear. Think “quality over quantity!”
