Spoiler Alert: It Doesn’t Exist!
A lot of people still look for quick fixes when it comes to reaching their fitness goals.
What’s the best exercise for fat loss? What’s the best workout routine for muscle gain? What’s the best movement for a shredded core? What’s the secret to results in 30 days or less?
The truth is, when it comes to any meaningful goal, there are no shortcuts!
Looking at fat loss and muscle gain specifically, your nutrition and the intensity of your workouts matter a lot more than the actual exercises you do.
At the end of the day, all goals boil down to two things: Consistency and effort!
One Thing To Try This Week
Looking to burn fat, build muscle, or gain strength? Well, if you feel like you’re doing all the right things with your nutrition and still aren’t seeing results, intensity might be the missing ingredient in your workouts.
To be clear, intensity doesn’t mean that every workout is a beatdown that leaves you flat on your back huffing and puffing for air.
Upping the intensity could simply mean being more intentional with your workouts.
If you find yourself going through the motions when you exercise, it might be time to put a little more focus on what you’re doing, especially if your goals are to burn fat, put on muscle, or get stronger.
For all your workouts this week, think about the muscles that you’re targeting before every set. Make sure you hit full range of motion and be as intentional as you can with every single rep.
If you’re a runner and your training typically consists of long runs at a steady/moderate pace, try adding some intensity this week with a sprint workout, or some tempo/interval runs.
Be present, work hard, and move with intention.
That’s the intensity that will get you the results you want.
