Assaults happen every day. Most often, assailants tend to choose victims who appear vulnerable. Today, Robert Boyd from 4Patriots shares some valuable tips you can use to keep yourself (and others) safe in a threatening situation.
Are you finally sick and tired of staring at your bulging belly in the mirror every morning?
Have you been promising yourself that “someday” you’ll finally do something about your health and get in better shape?
Do you think that losing weight has to mean hours of grueling workouts and mountains of celery sticks for three meals a day?
Well, get ready to throw your excuses in the trash, because my “Battle-Ready Body” military fitness program takes the advanced tactics used to keep our country’s warriors in fit-to-fight shape and lays it out step by step for the average Joe and Jane.
In fact… here are three military fitness tips that will get you in shape — fast.
1. Bodyweight Works Best
You don’t need a gym to get a great body — in fact, bodyweight exercises (like squats, pushups, pullups, situps and others) target more muscle fibers than any other style of training — even using weights!
And since your body’s muscle is its “fat-burning engine,” more muscle fiber stimulation means you burn more body fat all day and all night.
2. Train as Early as Possible
In the military, troops exercise first thing in the morning — and for a good reason…
Your metabolism speeds up during the day and slows down at night before you go to bed.
By exercising earlier in the day, you give a “turbo boost” to your metabolism to melt away even more body fat throughout the day — with no extra effort on your part!
3. Never Give up Your “Guilty Foods”
This goes against what you may think, but the fact is most diet plans fail because they’re too restrictive.
Soldiers almost live on pizza and beer yet stay in amazing shape because they stay active and eat right for most of their real meals.
When you give up your favorite foods, you actually want them even more… until the desire is too great and you eat a bucket of ice cream and give up.
The secret is to know WHEN to eat these foods so they don’t sabotage your results.
For example, in the Battle-Ready Body program, I prescribe three workouts per week that are only about 30 minutes long but work your muscles in a way that’s short, intense and fun.
The result is that your body actually benefits from the small dose of sugar and protein that gets shotgunned straight to your muscles to quickly begin the repair process, building them up bigger and stronger, week after week.
