So it seems a lot of you are really excited about our Free 6-Week Online Burst Training Bootcamp! I see you talking about it on Twitter, I see you blogging, commenting – there is EXCITEMENT. I am excited, too!
Our Shrinking Bootcamp was developed by Wende Leuba, an International Certification Specialist (someone who trains and certifies personal trainers) and Certified Personal Trainer. She has decades of experience in the fitness industry as an accomplished public speaker, personal trainer, physique competitor, AFAA Presenter.
I’ve been training with Wende for the past 9 months. Our children go to school together, and in the Fall she started up a bootcamp class for moms who were interested in getting fit. Of course I signed up, and since then my fitness world has been rocked by burst training. I’m proud to say that in the first 6 weeks of training with Wende, I went from 32% body fat to 27% body fat. That’s a loss of 5 percentage points in 6 weeks! Not only did I lose fat, but I lost inches, gained muscle, and felt SO much stronger. For me, feeling stronger has been the biggest benefit of bootcamp.
This bootcamp is very similar to a HIIT program – high intensity interval training – getting your heart rate up near your max very quickly, with a short break or lower intensity exercise to bring your heart rate down.
Do you want to feel strong? Then stick with it. I promise if you give Shrinking Bootcamp your all, if you really bring it, if you push yourself further than you think you can go, in 6 weeks, you will see and feel changes. You will feel STRONG!
Here’s a little about Burst Training from Wende:
TOP Doing Long-Slow-Duration Cardio Routines! You Will See Twice The RESULTS In Half The Time With Burst Training!
You DO NOT have to do long distance cardio to lose weight (fat). If you want to participate in an endurance event you should go for it, but if fat loss is your goal you should stick with burst training.
Have you ever noticed that people who run marathons aren’t very lean? Sometimes they are even have fat around the middle. They may seem weak and frail because their body is eating away at their muscle to provide energy. I have witnessed many people in the gyms over the years gaining weight while on a running program and getting very frustrated and even quitting.
If you are pounding the pavement day after day with no results you have been misled into thinking this is what you need to lose weight. You might also be experiencing injuries caused by overuse.
You have been taught for years to work out in your “fat burning zone.” While you do burn fat while in that zone it’s what happens after exercise that’s important. Studies show that you burn the opposite source of fuel after exercise than you did during exercise. So, later that day and the next day you will be burning muscle for sugar. Your cells can only use sugar and fat for energy. When you exercise for more than 30 minutes your growth hormone goes down. When this happens, you lose muscle mass and your body burns it for sugar.
What about a sprinter? Sprinters are super lean with tons of definition. A sprinter does short bursts over and over. This is how they train. They are burning sugar because there is not enough time to burn fat. So, the sprinter will burn fat for the next 24-36 hours after exercise. This is why burst training is better for weight loss. After bursting, growth hormone levels go up as well as testosterone levels. This is the perfect environment in the body for losing weight. The body is now a metabolic machine that wants to hold on to its muscle.
Besides weight loss, this style of training will greatly improve 5K times. Every boot camper I ever trained improved their personal records from month to month with burst training.
