Burn Body Fat Through Weight Training

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Ripped ManAny physical activity makes you expend more energy and as a result, if you are an active person, you will burn fat. Normally, the body will transform carbohydrates into energy. However, fat is used as fuel for metabolism and movement.

You could also use thermogenic foods and supplements, such as caffeine and hot peppers, to facilitate faster results, but diet and high intensity exercise are the two top ways to lose weight fast.

Weight Training and Burning Fat

Aside from a sensible diet, your fat loss program should include physical activities such as weight training and conditioning drills. However, the training sessions should implement an appropriate fat loss strategy for optimal results. Training with heavier weights and fewer reps has shown in numerous studies to preserve muscle mass on a low calorie diet, increase strength, stimulate fat burning, and elevate metabolism.

It is a common myth that we should train with low weight and high reps when trying to lose fat – that strategy is just a prescription for strength and muscle loss.

How to Eat Properly When Running to Lose Weight

Female SprintersAside from getting out there and running some serious interval sprints, losing weight is a matter of calories in versus calories out.

When it comes to the burning side, running is one of the best training programs out there for burning the extra pounds and keeping them off for good.

Fitness T-Shirts Online

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Make no mistakes, Project Swole gets traffic. We are currently getting between 10,000 and 13,000 unique visitors per day. This is good. However, this is expensive. In an attempt to recuperate some of those costs, I now host a t-shirt website.

The website is called Comical Tees. I’ve just started to build a sample of fitness tees. Here is a preview. Many more are to come. Please go Like Comical Tees on Facebook, so you can receive all of the updates.

So basically I am wondering what kinds of tee shirts you would buy online, if any. Here’s the poll:

Don’t worry though, this isn’t all we’re working on. Project Swole has many, many ideas, and we are working on building them out right now. The Project Shred 21 day detox diet is still in limbo. PDFs will be delivered shortly for all workout routines. The Werewolf Strength routine will be updated to version 2.0 shortly, and several other routines will be introduced. Guest posts and product reviews are coming. It is time to bring every Swole possibility to light, after many years of broken promises (I’ve been talking about the Project Shred diet for like 3 years, but it’s right here on my harddrive).

Any requests, please let me know. Project Swole t-shirts are coming soon, whether you want them or not, we just have to approve the right design. So stay tuned, because there is much more Swole to come in 2012.
