We all know that exercise is good for us, but did you know that proper exercise can help prolong our lives?
The right exercise can help increase our lung power so that we are able to do more activities longer. Healthy lungs can also help us get over colds and the flu more easily.
Then there are exercises that help the body get rid of toxins and those that help with deep breathing. No matter how you slice it, exercise is essential for total wellness.
Studies show regular exercise is extremely important in getting rid of visceral fat. Exercise also reduces the inflammatory properties of visceral fat that are linked to metabolic syndrome.
One of the keys to using exercise to normalize your insulin and leptin levels and eliminate visceral fat is to do enough of it. There are three important variables with exercise:
- Length of time
Intensity is KEY for an effective exercise regimen, and the beauty of high-intensity, burst-type exercises such as PACE is that it significantly cuts down on the amount of time you have to spend exercising. Full instructions on how to properly perform these exercises can be found here.
High-intensity exercises should be performed three to five times per week, and only take a total of 20 minutes each session. This will help you reach your fitness and weight goals quickly. Then you can drop down to 2-3 times per week and incorporate other fitness activities that you have always wanted to do but were not in the shape you need to be in to perform them.
In addition to PACE, you’ll want to incorporate other types of exercise to round out your regimen. A truly comprehensive exercise plan would also include interval strength training, core exercises and stretching.
And what about classic aerobic exercise? Honestly, most of the time spent on a treadmill is wasted, because you actually get the benefits of aerobic endurance as a side effect of high-intensity exercise! Sure, it will provide some health benefits, but spending most of your time on conventional aerobic activities will NOT provide you with optimal health benefits, so limit the time you spend on jogging and long-distance running activities.
I did cardio and long distance running for well over 15 years including finishing two Boston Marathons and seriously regret that massive waste of time and harm I did to my body. Learn from my lesson and avoid making the same mistake I did. You will be FAR better off with PACE, interval strength training and some flexibility exercises like yoga and stretching.
So, let’s get you introduced to the best exercise programs that will affect you at an epigenetic level. They are designed to provide optimal results in the shortest amount of time and help you live with more vitality!
I personally use these programs and wanted to share my results with you. I practice what I preach…
