Metabolic Mayhem: The Fat Burning, Youth Enhancing Advantage...

Many people, especially as they age, lose faith in their ability to burn off fat effectively and get in shape (or stay in shape). This has everything to do with how they move, train, and of course it is linked to what they take in (eat). Inward circumstances produce outward consequences.

People very often give in to the idea that a poor body shape (and composition), weak muscles, and a sluggish metabolism are inevitable...
Often people also think that their best days are behind them...a weak mindset.
NOTHING could be further from the truth!
Your body has simply changed. Times have changed. Training techniques have evolved. Deal with your frustrations in a smarter way.
Chances are doing what MAY have worked for you years ago may simply NOT work today.
Always do what you are always taught and you always get what you always got...
You need an approach that takes advantage of a recent breakthrough in exercise science that combats a poor functioning metabolism...

Many people try to start exercising more, or harder too quick, or in the wrong cycles, but that only makes a bad situation worse as your energy levels plummet, your appetite skyrockets, and intense cravings set in. This sends you into a vicious cycle of poor and impulsive/compulsive eating, puts you at high risk of overtraining, and can even increase your risk of repetitive use injuries. I have seen this over and over in the last 10 plus years as a professional. Quick fix mentalities often lead to long-term disasters.

Some people try the infomercial DVD workouts that assume you have the fitness level of a 20 year old, again putting you at risk for overuse, leading to damaging your joints, pulling muscles, or injuring your back. This is a bad idea without proper setup or guidance.
The good news...
Emerging research is showing that a smart form of training is remarkably effective at combating undesirable fat, weak muscles and a sagging body.
We call it Metabolic Training (MT). It fuses many fitness concepts into one. More on that down below.
Turn back the clock on biological aging...

MT also helps turn back the clock by saturating your cells with a cocktail of anti-aging bio-chemicals that stabilize blood sugar, optimize your cholesterol, lower resting heart rate, lower blood pressure, lift mental performance, and strengthen your heart and lungs. This is what I call EARNED anti-aging.

We will show you exactly how you can do that at RHF!
This can be done in short work cycles over the course of 30 minutes or less!
It all starts with these 3 powerful metabolic advantages that get REAL, VISIBLE results...and you can get them fast!
#1 Metabolic Advantage: Fusion Training
If you do traditional cardio like running, spinning, aerobics, jumping jacks, etc., you will burn some fat, but you may also burn A LOT of muscle. You may end up "skinny fat" with saggy, droopy skin, and flabby muscles. You look how you train, simple.

Weight training can be good for building muscles if done correctly. If done incorrectly it can slow fat burning, overtax joints, and make you bulkier, limiting range of motion and functionality.

Yoga (or stretching) is GREAT for nervous system coordination, flexibility and core strength, but it falls short when it comes to burning fat. Yoga is just not designed to do that.

What is the answer?
It is to combine the best of all 3 types of training into a single, ultra-short session that torches fat, tones muscles, and that is safe for anybody to do at any age, exactly what metabolic training does.
#2 Metabolic Advantage: Fat Burning Window Expanded

Another major problem of conventional workouts is their focus on burning fat DURING the workout.

That is a HUGE mistake that can damage your metabolism and furthermore can rob you of your full fat loss potential. There is a smarter way...

The key is to trigger your body to burn as much fat as possible AFTER your workout, exactly what metabolic training does. Metabolic training increases post-workout fat metabolism.

A study conducted in 2008 published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning showed that compared to regular workouts, a metabolic workout can burn up to 10 times MORE fat.

It does this by releasing a tidal wave of special metabolic molecules DURING the workout that send a powerful "adaptation" signal to your body to boost metabolism, burn fat, and cool inflammation AFTER the workout.

Your body then scrambles to replenish the intramuscular raw materials it burned up DURING the workout in a process that burns fat calories for up to 2-3 days AFTER the workout.

And guess where it gets the raw materials to replenish those resources?

Thankfully, straight from the fat that is parked on your belly, hips, thighs and butt. This is one reason we need fat on our bodies.
#3 Metabolic Advantage: Upgrade Fat Burning Permanently

Burn fat all the time, regardless of what you are doing...

Metabolic training does this with advantage #3 which sets off a process known as mitochondrial biogenesis, a fancy term for building new energy-producing power plants in your cells. Many of these cells are in your muscles.

The effect...

Your muscles improve their strength and tone, which in turn, dramatically improves your body shape.

In fact, that same 2008 study also showed that those doing metabolic workouts improved muscle shape by 82.2% vs. the traditional workout methods.

Give all of those new fat burning mitochondria (cell power plants) which allow you burn more fat calories while at rest, making you a better fat burner, not just 2-3 days after your workout, but ALL OF THE TIME!

If you begin to train metabolically, your body will burn a higher level of fat than that of your old traditional training approach.
How Can You Do Metabolic Training?
Metabolic training is something that anybody can do, regardless of their age, fitness level or physical condition.
It is all a matter of degree...
NO equipment is needed, just your body weight to start.

In fact, studies have shown that the older and more out of shape one is (including those with type 2 diabetes and heart disease) the greater the benefit they may experience.

Plus, unlike many new workouts around, proper rest is encouraged. You are SUPPOSED to rest as much as you need to. The workouts are semi-self regulated.

Sounds crazy, but proper rest cycling is what allows you to up the intensity enough to trigger the release of those metabolic molecules that cause the post-workout fat loss and mitochondria-building.

Proper rest is also the key to unleashing that tidal wave of anti-aging bio-chemicals that give you a makeover from the inside out... This can make you look and feel 10-20 years younger! No joke.

Most people totally screw up this rest part. Many people try to work out as hard as they can (often too early in the program), for as LONG as they can, which just damages metabolism, accelerates metabolic aging, and zaps energy.

BETTER is better. More is not better.

The best part about MT is that the exercise sequences are SUPER short, only 3-6 minute work cycles.

And the results are fast...In just a few sessions you may start seeing the inches come off, feeling the surge in energy and loving the fact that you have gotten back into the swing of things, enjoying life again.
After all, the point of exercise/fitness is to help you enjoy life and your true potential by pushing physical boundaries.
Add life to your years with metabolic training, or what we call metabolic mayhem...
