Hi,

Last post we talked about exercise protocols.  Now the best way to use these are to relate them to your fitness goals. 

If you really need to build some muscle then you should know by now that long term low to moderate intensity aerobics aren’t going to help you. 

And as you found out the aerobics aren’t really going to help you much with fat loss either.

What if you do need to lose some body fat, but you don’t want to lose any muscle either?

Then you might try some sprints.  Remember though you have to build up to sprinting. 

People that just go out and start sprinting keep the chiropractors busy. 

So build up to it and as you get better you will find that you burn fat very easily and efficiently.  Only a few sprints will keep your metabolism burning like crazy for hours afterwards. 

Maybe you need to work on specific areas of the body.  If your arms are lagging you don’t want to just do arm exercises. 

The way to build up is to lift heavier on your back and chest exercises. 

For example, by doing heavier cable rows, you will also be working your biceps heavier.  This means your biceps will be getting stronger also.

By going a little heavier on chest presses your triceps will be getting stronger also.

Stronger will lead to a more defined and in most cases a little bigger muscle. 

So don’t be afraid to lift heavier.  Your arms are not going to balloon up to 22 inches in 3 days. 

They will get stronger and more defined.  And “a little” bit bigger.  Which is probably all you need.

Try lifting a little heavier for a cycle and see what happens.

Make your fitness goals a part of your routine and you will start to see amazing progress.
