How to Burn 49000 calories in 7 Days...This may sound like an impossible promise, but I assure you it is not. In fact....I'm under promising.
I'm going to tell you about a method of exercising and training that, while tough, and believe me it is tough, will produce staggering results - you see I'm not going to recommend you to go on a drastic calorie restricted diet, (a small one, sure) but I would recommend a workout that will demand a dramatic increase in the calorie consumption of your body. And that's why you can drop up to, and some of you will drop OVER, 14 pounds of PURE fat in just 7 days.
You can reduce your calories and eat fat burning foods that will cause weight loss on its own. But I would combine that with with a unique and remarkable exercise program that will increase your metabolic rate (the sum total of ALL the chemical reactions in the body). This in turn results in a MAJORLY increased demand to burn calories within the body.
"How?", you may ask. Let me tell you...
Typically most estimates show that 1 pound of muscle burns 7 to 15 calories per day to hang out and stay on your body. But what happens if you USE that muscle....?
Well several studies , including one by Dr. Wayne Westcott (1) show that there is a fairly sizeable increase in calories used by the muscle to maintain and grow them when exposed to highly intense forms of muscular effort. In other words, the exercise in this course results in increase in protein turnover in the muscle mass, and thus the metabolic cost and energy demand of the muscles can hit as high as 50 calories per pound of muscle per day.
Let me put that in context.
Let's say you are an average guy, with 140 lbs of muscle and with 30 lbs of fat on that too, for a total weight of 170 lbs.
Let's say you follow this workout and use a LOT of your body's available muscle, say 120 lbs of it.
If you REALLY push yourself hard (and these techniques will make you), you could be looking at a top end of 6,000 kcal burnt in 24 hrs. That's equivalent energy of 1.7lbs of fat. (each lb of fat roughly equals 3,500 kcals).
Here's a real world example.
I weighed 190 lbs at the start of my experiment. 165 lbs of lean muscle. I used close to all of that (including my cardiac muscles during the interval training sections ;-D ), but for argument sake let's say 140 lbs. I pushed myself to the absolute maximum level possible so roughly increased the calorie consumption of my muscles to about 40 kcal per pound, per day.
That's a 7,000 kcal demand of my body in 24 hours.
I did 4 of these workouts during the week. - resulting in a total calorie demand of 28,000 kcals.
Now...on top of that I did 2 rounds of Interval training (There is also an interval training and cardiovascular afterburner program for maximum fat erosion. They are to be performed in a very specific sequence - this results in synergistic and cumulative fat burning - and yes, I cover these in my program), which as you'll see later can generate upwards of 5,000 kcals lost per session.
Total body kcal demand from exercise 38,000 give or take a hundred or two either way.
Now...on top of that I had REDUCED my maintenance calories by 500 kcal a day, which over a week is 3,500 kcal.
So...all in all I created a 73,000 calorie deficit over 7 days. That's the fat equivalent of 20 lbs of fat. BUT I only dropped 14lbs in that 7 days? Why....because these are only estimates of the calories I used, without full EPOC testing I can't be sure of the exact numbers, and...in fairness I added a solid 4 lbs of muscle and likely retained more water as a result.
But that's how you burn staggering amounts of fat very, very fast. Demand a remarkable increase in muscle calorie demand and the metabolic costs for having it there while reducing your calories sensibly
Here is a simple equation -
Do More - Eat Less
That's how every person on the planet loses weight naturally and successfully.
The only difference is the workouts I've designed result in remarkable levels of energy consumption by the muscles.
Now...with all these insanely high numbers being tossed around it's important to remember that YOUR actual metabolic rate increase would depend on numerous individual factors. The good news is that a complete beginner will have a higher protein turnover than someone more advanced in training experience. For an highly developed individual a increased protein turnover may be closer to an additional 25 to 45 calories per day per pound.
In the next article I'll give you a little more insight into the process and how Isometric's are used to supercharge your metabolism...but if you want to get ahead of the pack and get the system for yourself you can - Slim in Seconds.
