You often see talk shows on TV trying to tell you how to build the perfect beach body just like Hollywood actors and actresses, but they never seem to give you all the details. They give you a few tips, but they don’t show you how to apply them to work for you. Most of the stuff you see on TV is overhyped and over pitched and wouldn’t help you lose weight anyway. So the question is, how do they really do it? I mean when you look at pictures of people on TV, you can tell that they’ve lost weight and created amazing bodies, so you know that they are doing something right, but what is it exactly? Well I am here to tell you a few simple tricks that can help you create the same Hollywood body that you see on TV, without having to spend a fortune in the process.
Most Hollywood actors and actresses don’t have a lot of time to spend in the gym while they are shooting. I know it sounds crazy, but they spend just as much time at work as you do, so they have to find a way to get in shape on the go. Well, one of the ways that I help them do that is by squeezing workouts in between takes or in the morning before they go to work. So how do I do it?
The first thing you need to understand is that it is intensity and not frequency or duration that helps you to get in shape. Spending all day in the gym doing easy exercises will not get you slim and trim. You have to focus on the intensity of the exercise, rather than the duration. For example, rather than doing a bicep curl on a machine over the course of 5-10 minutes, how about doing as many reps as you can in 1 minute and then quickly moving on to the next exercise. This is the #1 principle that I use to help people change the way they workout and actually start seeing results.
The next thing you can do is to ditch the long exhaustive cardio sessions and use something more high impact, such as jumping rope or doing core exercises. If you just increase the intensity and go all out, even for only a minute, your body will start to adapt. When you are able to bring your body to the brink of exhaustion within 20 minutes, then you will shock it into a permanent growth mode where you will naturally increase your metabolism and energy efficiency. What does this mean for you?
Well an increased metabolism means that you will actually be burning that fat you’ve been trying to shed for years. It also means that you will have more energy then ever before. Also, your body will use the food you consume more efficiently, which means that less will go to waste. This basically means you won’t be creating any more fat and so your entire effort will be spent on burning off that flabby midsection.
Don’t let people fool you into thinking that you have to spend hours in the gym every day to lose weight. Short and intense exercise burns just as much calories as a long cardio session does, so why spend the extra time if you don’t have to? I am a firm believer that you can get a good workout in 20 minutes a day and I have the results to prove it.
