Want to Burn More Body Fat?

Hi,

Would you like to burn more body fat without adding any time to your exercise sessions?

Here is a simple way to do that.  It is so simple that even though everyone does it, no one does it. 

Hey, I just made a Zen riddle:-).

Okay, that simple thing is breathing.  Yes, everyone breathes.  But, very few people breathe properly and even fewer breathe properly while exercising.

It is estimated that the average person only uses about 1/5 to 1/4 of their lung’s capacity. 

After all just sitting at a desk all day doesn’t require vast amounts of oxygen – or so most people think.

However, the more oxygen you take in the more efficient your whole body works. 

This is especially true with exercise.  If you are used to taking tiny puffs of air then when you really need a lot of oxygen, you won’t know how to get it in your body properly.

Most people breathe through their chest.  They never use their breathing muscle or diaphragm. 

If you watch a child breathe, you will notice that their abdomen expands and contracts naturally.  Their chest doesn’t expand and contract.

With adults it is just the opposite.  They just let the air come in and leave without thinking about breathing.   Neither their chest, nor their abdomen expands or contracts.

If adults do exercise then you will see their chests expanding.  After all the chest is worshipped by many.

Okay, so how do you burn more body fat with proper breathing?

First you learn how to breathe correctly.  You do that by letting your abdomen expand as you inhale.  Then you contract your abdomen as you exhale. 

As you practice this try to take longer inhales and exhales.  You can also add in holds.  Inhale, hold, exhale and hold. 

Start at a couple of seconds for each and work up to several seconds each.

When you are pretty comfortable with this then you can incorporate this in with your exercise sessions. 

On the positive part or concentric part of the exercise you want to exhale.  Forcibly contract your abdomen to force the diaphragm up and expel the air. 

As you do the negative part or eccentric part of the exercise, let the air come in and fill up your lungs.  This will cause the diaphragm to be drawn into the abdomen and expand it. 

This causes a much more powerful breath and will actually help with your strength.

Now, the real key to burning more body fat is to do your breathing exercises inbetween your sets. 

So you do one set, with proper breathing.  Immediately stand up and control your breathing with deep breathes. 

Inhale, hold, exhale and hold.  Do this until you feel in control of your breathing.  Then do your next set.  If you feel more comfortable, do this while walking around. 

Don’t just sit there at the exercise station and do this.  You won’t get the full benefits. 

How long will it take you to get your breathe under control? 

That will vary depending upon the type of exercise, what kind of shape you are in and how intense the session was.

If you find that you aren’t even breathing more than normal then that exercise set was not intense enough for you.  (Not talking about warmup sets here.)

Go ahead and try these breathing patterns whenever you exercise and your body will feel better and you will feel stronger and more powerful.

And you will burn more body fat.

Thanks
