stretching Your way lean

Losing Weight is a breeze with this stretch…

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src=""></script>

You look in the mirror and what you see looking back is a body that’s a total put-off–not appealing at all!

And in no time…things are getting worse…

You pull on your favorite pants…and it’s a real struggle…

There’s zero chance the zipper will move!

And it feels even more heartbreaking when your kids or grand-kids playfully tease you about your widening waist…and of course they’re not being mean–just telling you the brutal truth!

And it dawns on you that you need to do something…and very urgently!

But you know what?

Wanting to lose weight, melt fat and get back to shape is one thing…

Finding the time, energy, discipline and willpower to do it is another whole different challenge altogether.

Life is hectic enough…and finding time to squeeze a workout between working and other routine things is very demanding!

Or, imagine starving yourself on the latest radical diet favored by superstars!

Sure, those diets work for skinny 20-somethings, but certainly not for those approaching senior age brackets, or are already there!

You see, we’ve been misled into believing there’s only one way to shed the pounds–the hard way.

The harder, the more extreme, and complicated…the better…

Even if it means killing yourself to get to the gym, busting your butt running, or following a super-strict diet plan.

Fortunately, there’s an easier way–a discovery the fitness industry is desperate to keep under the wraps…

Because it turns your understanding of what a good workout program should be on its head!

There’s a way of blending flexibility training with a calorie burning movement pattern…

Without requiring any equipment–it’s completely body-weight focused so you’re building muscle and burning fat while you move…

And it’s simple and straightforward to do. In fact, you can fit it into the busiest schedule…without hundreds of videos and manuals to explain all the moves.

Even better, it’s not complicated nor groundbreaking…

What makes it revolutionary is the combination of simple exercises into one powerful movement sequence you’ll actually enjoy doing…

Even if you’ve tried everything to lose weight, burn stubborn belly fat and tone up and failed–this is different.

And it will help you break out of the cycle of misinformation and myths you’ve been trapped into by the fitness industry.

You see, the fitness industry has led you to believe there are only a few ways to cut body fat and get in the shape you want.

The billion dollar fitness industry has spent billions promoting this misinformation…

It wants you to believe losing weight and getting in shape requires tons of time, effort, and of course...tons of your money!

And you can ask yourself who benefits from this advice…

And your guess is as good as mine…

It’s the fitness industry as a whole–celebrity trainers, equipment and supplement companies. If all their advice worked, everyone would be walking around slim, healthy, and happy!

But why is obesity a major public health concern? Why are more people being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes?

You know you need to be fitter, more flexible and healthier…yet the grim statistics keep stacking up!

It all comes down to 3 big lies the fitness industry has been peddling for decades…

But please don’t feel bad for not seeing through the lies sooner…

The good news is…once you see these lies for what they are, they’ll no longer hold any power over you!

Weight loss lie number one is that you need to starve yourself on a crash diet. However, extreme dieting has been proven to be harmful to your health.

Sure, you drop weight within days and weeks of starving yourself, but who wouldn’t, anyway?

The danger with extreme dieting is your body doesn’t get enough essential nutrients, minerals, and vitamins

And most importantly, your body doesn’t get enough protein…and you know protein contains essential amino acids, which are vital for supporting your body and muscle growth.

You may lose some body fat during a starvation diet,, but you may also lose muscle, which will account for more of the weight loss.

If your body drops muscle, its basal metabolic rate drops, meaning your body will naturally burn less fat…

And when you start eating normally again, you quickly put the weight back on.

Your body also experiences metabolic adaptation. It kicks into its natural survival mode and becomes more efficient due to calorie deprivation, meaning it needs less energy to survive.

Therefore, to continue dropping fat, you have to starve yourself even more!

Dieting actually changes your brain’s response to food.

When you deprive your body of calories, your levels of the hormone leptin drop–the hormone that makes you feel full…

While ghrelin increases–the hormone that makes you feel hungry…

Meaning even when you eat, and you’ve been on severely restricted calories, you’ll still be left feeling hungry.

So, what do you do?

Don’t deprive your body of food!

A simple, regular movement designed to raise your heart rate, boost your metabolism and maintain muscle will help move you towards the body you’ve always wanted without depriving yourself of food.

Weight loss lie number two is that you need high intensity 12 week “shreds“…

But the truth is…

12-week intense programs are great for exercise enthusiasts that love working out for hours a week…

And they can stay committed for the long-term and stick to a super-strenuous high intensity training program.

However, most people have other priorities and don’t have the time or interest to devote that much time to daily workouts.

Even worse, the high intensity activities exert a lot of wear and tear on the joints of people over 35 years-old, leading to excruciating pains and aches.

The truth is…

With the right program targeted in the right way, you can realize results in as little as 14 days, or even less.

You don’t need jacked up high intensity workouts that leave you exhausted and unable to move a muscle or limb for the rest of the day.

And here is the biggie–weight loss lie number 3

You need to spend hours doing cardio everyday!

Essentially, this means spending a good chunk of your life on…

  • Treadmills
  • Cross trainers, and…
  • Endless jogging

Burning body fat is a function of an elevated heart rate. If your body needs an elevated heart rate to burn calories, cardio is like a blunt weapon…

Because cardio is only effective if you have hours of your time available for it…

And the only people who can afford such huge amounts of time are pro-athletes and fitness models who do this for a living!

So, if your goal is to burn body fat and get lean, hours of cardio may not be the answer for you.

Cardio works by raising your heart rate. A raised heart rate fires your metabolism to burn calories…

And burning calories burns fat.

So, if you find a program that simply raises your heart rate on a regular basis for as little as 15 minutes a day, you’ll increase your metabolism and burn more fat.

In a nutshell, you don’t need hours of cardio, starve yourself, or do a 12-week high intensity program to get the body shape you desire.

You need something that’s simple and effective without leaving you feeling too exhausted.

You need to improve and maintain your flexibility and mobility

And that’s stretching!

Stretching is also the key to unlocking unlimited weight loss and fat burning

It flips the switch on your body’s fat-burning engine.

Flexibility is one of the three pillars of fitness along with strength and endurance…

And the secret to flexibility and burning fat is movement. So when you think of becoming more flexible, you must think static stretching.

It figures, static stretching is what we’ve been told to do since high school days. It usually means stretching one particular muscle and holding it in the stretch for around 30 seconds.

Static stretching aims to lengthen the muscle to make it more elastic.

Flexibility is all about a range of motions around a joint

Mobility, on the other hand, is the ability to move freely and easily.

Static stretching alone cannot improve flexibility. The secret to flexibility is movement.

Only movement of a joint extends its range of motion and improves flexibility…

And of course, any movement burns calories. So movement is central to both calorie burning and flexibility.

And it all comes down to metabolism…

When your metabolism is fired up, you burn more calories.

There’s one specific way of stretching that can torch body fat and burn calories up to 3 times more effectively than any other stretch…

And while static stretching has benefits…

Dynamic stretching and movement is the key to torching body fat while improving flexibility.

And you can’t argue with the numbers…

Static stretching burns 120 calories an hour…

While dynamic stretching blasts through 400 calories per hour.

Dynamic stretching isn’t just swinging your legs or hips to warm up. Some forms like lunges and rotations can be used alongside other low-impact, movement-based activities to burn fat while improving flexibility.

Through movement, you kick-start your metabolism and take it a notch higher so you’re burning more calories than normal.

Dynamic stretches emphasize movements across your full range of motion, which last longer and fire up your metabolism.

Compared with static stretching, dynamic stretching also improves muscular performance, allowing you to work harder and heavier.

And when it comes to stretches, there are some forms that stand out in burning fat and calories:

  • Calisthenics–this involves body weight focused movements that deliver strength, dynamic flexibility, and burn more calories than any other exercises combined.

With natural movement patterns and gravity, calisthenics uses simple moves to build a foundation of strength and flexibility for the body.

Calisthenics is an almost complete exercise in burning calories, switching up your metabolism, improving endurance, and building muscle.

  • Dynamic stretching–involves slow, controlled movements that stay within your range of motion, working to increase your reach and speed of movement.

One review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine across 31 studies found a warm-up using dynamic flexibility exercise also enhanced power and strength performance.

  • Kickboxing–its explosive moves deliver unequaled power in burning calories.

One research study showed that 5 weeks of kickboxing training brought significant improvements in flexibility, speed, agility, and upper body muscle power.

  • Mobility stretching–having good mobility means being able to perform a movement without any restriction.

Mobility exercises help improve flexibility and function at any age and that’s why it’s an important component of fat-burning and flexibility flow.

  • Fascia stretching–fascia is the tight connective tissue surrounding every one of your muscles that holds them in place. But there’s a negative side to this…

If your fascia is too tight, it restricts muscle growth!

Incorporating fascia stretching into your program releases tensions, allows muscle to grow and cranks up your metabolism.

  • Breathing techniques–for thousands of years, ancient martial arts used breathing practices to strengthen muscles in the chest and core.

Done properly, these simple, but powerful moves flood your body and muscle with oxygen, stretch the chest cavity and fire up your metabolism…

And all you have to do is breathe in with some force…and then out.

  • Pilates–The Mayo Clinic defines pilates as a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility, muscular strength, and endurance movements.

Pilates emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. Originally used by athletes to build core strength, pilates has been revealed as an effective low-impact way to reduce body fat mass.

  • Yoga–while the ancient practice of yoga used to be more associated with chanting and meditation, its stretching protocols are gaining traction as part of its calorie-burning benefits.

There are many yoga styles, ranging from the gentle to heart-pounding, leg-behind your head styles that leave you in a pool of sweat.

In-arguably, there are simple, straightforward stretches that you can do…and they work!

Choosing any set of the stretches will keep you in tip-top shape, and you’ll:

  • Feel yourself getting stronger
  • Experience all the tightness and stiffness drain from your muscles, and…
  • Watch your body change as you burn fat and become leaner

Your physique will get toned…

All without having to spend long hours doing boring cardio, or killing yourself in a body-shredding workout regimen.

And now…

That smashing, enviable figure you’ve been yearning for is just a stretch away. Go for it!

This piece is too good to keep to yourself. Share it far and wide to bless others.

My profound gratitude for your unwavering patronage.

Stay tuned…
